Christian Football

Someone shared the following football moves that many Christians in our churches use today. I hope you enjoy the parallel analogy. Check this list to see if you are participating in "Christian Football":

* Quarterback Sneak - Church members quietly leaving during the invitation.

* Draw Play - What many children do with the bulletin during worship.

* Half-time - The period between Sunday School and worship when many choose to leave.

* Benchwarmer - Those who do not sing, pray, work, or apparently do anything but sit.

* Backfield-in-Motion - Making a trip to the back (restroom  or water fountain) during the service.

* Staying in the Pocket - What happens to a lot of money that should be given to the Lord's work.

* Two-minute Warning - The point at which you realize the sermon is almost over and begin to gather up your children and belongings.

* Instant Replay - The preacher loses his notes and falls back on last week's illustrations.

* Sudden Death- What happens to the attention span of the congregation if the preacher goes "overtime."

* Trap - You're called on to pray and are asleep.

* End Run - Getting out of church quick, without speaking to any guest or fellow member.

* Flex Defense - The ability to allow absolutely nothing said during the sermon to affect your life.

* Halfback Option - The decision of 50 of the congregation not to return for the evening service.

* Blitz - The rush for the restaurants following the closing prayer.

 May we all commit our ways unto HIM.


 In Christ,
