Has God Determined the Super Bowl Winner?

Answer me truthfully: Do you think that God will dictate who wins, and who loses, this weekend’s Super Bowl?

There is no right or wrong answer, but it is an interesting question. This afternoon, Todd and I talk a little football, and discuss a recent study that says 27% of Americans believe that God plays a role in sporting events. The fascinating part, for me at least, was how it broke down geographically and demographically.

    Hey Matt,
    One of my favorite preachers from days gone by was Leonard Ravenhill. He was pretty serious about living for Christ and what that should look like.

    He used to say that the king of America and it’s number one point of idolatry was Sports and it’s queen pulling a close 2nd was Entertainment.

    This being said, i agree with you guys that God is interested in every player on each team, but I am pretty sure there is not much about the outcome written by God.

    But that’s just me
