The LeBron James Approach

As I witness the national anthem protests unfold, I wonder if the NFL players have ever heard the old saying, “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.” Did you know that despite Black men representing only 6 percent of the United States’ population, blacks make up 70 percent of the NFL rosters? While most NFL players are black, the NFL fan base is 83 percent white. Some NFL players are doing more harm than good by engaging in the “Black Lives Matter” style of protest.

“Many Americans Side With President Trump on NFL Anthem Protests” – NPR – October 4, 2017

Professional sport is one of the few avenues where White America actively invests their money into making millionaires out of Black men. There is no way that athletes like LeBron James and Colin Kaepernick could have earned millions of dollars playing sports without White people’s support. As the numbers of NFL players who raise awareness to police brutality grow, have you noticed that the NFL TV ratings and number of sponsors has decreased?

When Black athletes kneel during the national anthem, it seems like they want White America to pay to both watch them play and hear a lecture about how White people currently and historically oppress Black people.  Unfortunately for the NFL, most White NFL fans simply want to watch a football game and not get lectured – especially not from a group of millionaires playing football for a living.

I believe that black athletes are speaking out mostly because they feel a sense of responsibility to help avoid another unarmed black man getting shot by a White cop. A growing number of NFL players believe that issues like police brutality are getting ignored by White America. So, the players participating in the national anthem protest feel that they must remind America of the injustice that exists within the Black community every chance they get. They might say in their minds, what better time to make people aware of the reality that black lives really do matter, than during a football game while millions of people watch?

“Personal Foul: Videos Show NFL Players Yelling ‘F**k You’ at Fans” – Breitbart Sports – October 5, 2017

As black athletes speak out on various social problems, I believe that there is a growing sentiment among White America that black athletes no longer respect and appreciate White sports fans after all the police brutality videos surfaced over the Internet. When there is a perceived lack of respect in a relationship (Black athletes and White fans), the relationship will break down.

LeBron James has not only been the “king” over the basketball court but has been the “king” as far as professional athletes giving back to his community and helping inner city youth.

The perceived lack of respect White America currently feels Black athletes have for them goes beyond NFL players participating in the national anthem protest. Whether Stephen Curry sees the consequences of his choices; it was a questionable decision on his part to turn down the opportunity to visit the White House. Rejecting the White House invitation and suggesting that President Trump is a White Supremacist only adds to the impression that Black athletes don’t respect the very people who make them millions of dollars.

Many people applauded LeBron James when he tweeted: “U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain’t going! So, therefore, am not, no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!”  I wonder if LeBron James understands that there are millions of people who were offended by his comments; people who will never support him again. In the same way, the Tea Party movement offended many of President Obama’s supporters; some black athletes are presently offending the over 60 million people who voted for Donald Trump.

I hate the fact that Michael Jordan almost never used his name and money to get involved in causes that would have made a positive impact. For most of Michael Jordan’s career as a basketball player and as an entrepreneur, he has taken the opposite approach to dealing with social justice issues than an outspoken athlete like Colin Kaepernick. Jordan understands that speaking out on social justice issues is not good for business. So, he has chosen to keep his mouth closed and focus on building his brand.

Which of these two Black athletes does America love the most: Is it Michael Jordan who has been mostly silent on social justice issues, or Colin Kaepernick who has been outspoken? Can I be honest with you? Most White Americans probably love Black athletes like Michael Jordan, but want guys like Colin Kaepernick to be quiet. Meanwhile, Black people love athletes like Colin Kaepernick, but beginning to despise silent athletes like Michael Jordan.

In the past, most Black athletes took the “Michael Jordan approach” in handling social justice issues. For example, I don’t remember too many athletes saying a word when Rodney King took a beating from White cops in 1991. Over the years, many professional athletes who wanted to make a difference have quietly done community service and left social justice issues to the community activists. This is what LeBron James has done, as he has helped hundreds of kids go to college.  So why are we seeing a growing number of Black athletes speaking out on social justice issues? If you answer that Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement is currently influencing many of these athletes, give yourself a couple of points.

“LeBron’s foundation to spend $41M to send kids to college” – foxsports.com -August 13, 2015

The problems within the black community have not changed much over the years, but the methods of dealing with the problems are changing. The Black Lives Matter movement is currently teaching its followers that it is critical to make as much noise as possible and expect more from White America. They have successfully fooled many in the black community into believing that we need another Civil Rights Movement. More civil rights probably wouldn’t fix most of the problems that plague people of color. I think the world would be a better place if more athletes and fans took the traditional “Lebron James approach” by helping to invest in young people’s lives.

The Black Lives Matter approach to Black liberation that is becoming popular is one reason Blacks are currently under-addressing issues that are destroying the black community like black-on-black crime, heart diseases, and diabetes. Why are we witnessing very few people saying anything about these and other mounting problems in the Black community? Holding Blacks responsible for their actions has become an unpopular message. It is almost impossible to build a movement within the Black community the size of Black Lives Matter, if you are not focusing on police brutality.

I have witnessed Colin Kaepernick evolve away from the BLM approach. When Mr. Kaepernick first started kneeling during the national anthem, he had not done much for the Black community. I don’t think Kaepernick was even registered to vote when he started his national anthem protest. Over time, Kaepernick has learned to do more to help the Black community and say less. The community service that Kaepernick engaged in after the 2016 NFL season doesn’t seem like the lesson most Black athletes and fans have learned from Kaepernick’s life. It has been the kneeling and speaking out against racism that other players and people feed up with police brutality are mostly imitating across this country.

“Huge NJ Car Dealer Pulls Ads Over NFL Protests” – Townhall – October 4, 2017

After years of great work in the community, it saddens me to see black athletes like Stephen Curry and LeBron James get sucked into the BLM style of protest. It is so important that Black athletes understand that you will never gain people’s respect by being disrespectful. This is another lesson that the Black Lives Matter approach should have taught us. This approach teaches people about the importance of exercising their rights, but not always in a responsible way. For example, as LeSean McCoy lay on the field warming up before one game as the national anthem played, he was exercising his first amendment rights, but burning bridges at the same time.

Black folks can argue that people like LeSean McCoy and Marshawn Lynch’s forms of protest shouldn’t offend White people. But these and other athletes’ behavior during the national anthem shows an unwillingness to compromise with the NFL owners who want the players to change the world on their own time. People who are willing to compromise with the “other side” are often viewed as sellouts. There are some who would rather see someone like LeBron James speak out against President Trump than spend his time helping to send young people to college. Let’s be real; young people with no quality education are more likely to become victims of police brutality.

“Cowboys players do plenty of good work with charity causes and through their foundations” – Blogging The Boys – September 27, 2017

The BLM approach also causes people to have unrealistic expectations of what White America should do for the Black community. For example, here is what Richard Sherman (Seattle Seahawks cornerback) stated in a press conference about the players’ protest in the NFL: ‘Stop the Racism, Bigotry, and Inequality, and We’ll Stop Protesting.’ Is this a realistic demand? Of course not. The BLM standoffish approach doesn’t teach people the importance of tolerating or forgiving other people’s mistakes. This method of achieving equality often uses people’s faults to justify exercising inner anger. People who buy into the BLM’s approach often feel a sense of entitlement to inflict verbal and other forms of abuse on others that they should be forgiving. The BLM approach will never lead to racial reconciliation or inner healing.

Before I close, I’d like to give a pop quiz. There are almost 8,000 black people a year who die because of this problem. Meanwhile, this other issue causes about 300 blacks deaths each year. Which of these two issues would you guess is the greater threat to the Black community? The one that is killing 8,000 black people or the one that is killing about 300? You probably guess by now that I’m talking about black-on-black crime vs. police shootings.

The folks who believe in the BLM approach to fighting for social change will tell you that black-on-black crime is a byproduct of poor policing. The people who believe in the Michael Jordon approach won’t say or do anything as they watch thousands of Black men kill each other each year. Those who subscribe to the traditional LeBron James approach will invest their time into helping young people get out of poverty so they don’t feel like they must commit a crime. You tell me which of these three approaches is the best for the black community.

“When white sports fans turn on black athletes” – The Guardian – October 5, 2017

Yes, I understand there are different approaches to bring about social change. Some people will argue without the Malcolm X’s “By Any Means Necessary Approach,” that the Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Non-violence Approach” would never have worked to help end problems like segregation. If we want to see a better world, let’s teach and model the traditional LeBron James approach and pray Black athletes like James and Curry continue doing the great community service work that they are doing.

Signs of the Times: The NFL

In case you have not noticed, there are a growing number of die-hard football fans who are turning their backs on the NFL for various reasons.
During a season of prayer back in the spring of 2016 is when I started having the feeling that the NFL will collapse by the end of 2018, though the crumbling of the NFL seemed impossible at the time. In 2015, as the popularity of professional football seemed higher than ever, the NFL recorded record-breaking revenue; yet, as the 2017 NFL season kicked off, the gloom and doom prediction I made in the Spring of 2016 that God will punish the NFL because they are helping push Christian values out of our society appeared to be coming to fruition.
 “NFL Teams Make History by Sponsoring LGBT Pride Event” – SouthFloridaGayNews.com – June 2, 2017
In case you have not noticed, there are a growing number of die-hard football fans who are turning their backs on the NFL for various reasons. This loss of fans must be a huge concern to the NFL owners. Did you know that the NFL makes over $7 billion a year from selling television packages to CBS, NBC, Fox, DirecTV and ESPN/ABC? Most of the money the NFL receives from TV networks is in jeopardy at this point if football fans continue to find other things to do on Sundays rather than watch football. 
Sports leagues like the NFL and NBA are thriving financially; they earn billions of dollars from TV networks. Unfortunately for the NFL, the enormous amount of TV revenue they are used to making in the last couple of years will begin to decline as their audience deteriorates. The billion-dollar question is how long TV networks like NBC and FOX will continue to host the NFL if the TV ratings continue to decline at the pace they are now?
I believe the empty stadiums we see in California with the Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Chargers and San Francisco 49ers are what we will see across this country in almost every NFL city.
NBC, for example, pays $950 million a year for Sunday Night Football. The money that NBC spends in broadcasting the NFL would be well spent if NFL games could attract an average of over 20 million viewers per game (Sunday night games brought in an average of 22.5 million viewers in 2015). Presently, the NBC is paying the NFL big bucks for the highest rated show on primetime TV.
‘Tough start’ for NFL season — ratings down 13% in Week 1 – Yahoo Finance – September 14, 2017
To put into perspective how dominant the NFL has gotten regarding attracting audiences, Game of Thrones which averages about 11.28 million viewers per show is the number one cable show in 2017. On network TV, NCIS, which consistently pulls over 15 million viewers is the number one scripted show on television. Because network TV must complete with Netflix, Hulu TV, and other growing avenues of entertainment, most TV networks would be thrilled if a couple of their shows attracted over 10 million viewers.
With the millions of people on social media calling football fans to boycott the NFL, it seems clear that the NFL is in for another dip in their ratings during the 2017 season after losing 8% of their audience in 2016. The NFL saw a 12% drop in their TV ratings from the 2016 NFL season opener (New England Patriots vs. Kansas City Chiefs), and this was a bad omen for the NFL. The league also saw almost every single game whether played on Sunday afternoon or Monday night except for Sunday Night Football take a dip in viewers from last year. The low TV ratings coupled with the fact that Los Angeles has two teams with very little fan support is terrible news for the NFL.
“The NFL Is Seriously Concerned With Empty Stadiums” – The Big Lead – September 13, 2017
Let’s imagine that the NFL lost another 12% of their audience in 2017 (In week one of the 2017 NFL season, the league’s ratings dropped 13% from 2016’s week one in live and same-day average viewers according to UBS). The NFL would have lost a total 20% of their TV audience in just 2 years. This would mean that an average NFL game would go from 16.5 million viewers to 14.5 million during the 2017 season. If this scenario occurs in 2017, this makes 2018 a make or break year for the NFL. With the NFL charging TV networks like NBC and ESPN billions of dollars to broadcast their product, it is difficult to envision the NFL surviving declining TV ratings like we are now seeing three years in the row.
To put the NFL’s declining TV ratings into perspective, let’s look at the hit show, Game of Thrones. For season 6 of the Game of Thrones series, HBO forked over an average of $10 million per episode, according to a recent story by Entertainment Weekly (remember this show is averaging over 11 million viewers). Meanwhile, it costs NBC well over $50 million to broadcast one episode of Sunday Night Football. Bear in mind that NBC’s Sunday Night Football ended 2016 with an average of 20.3 million viewers. When you see the Game of Thrones attracting roughly the same number of viewers as the NFL, you know that the end is near for the most successful sports league ever.
 “Twitter Roasts Los Angeles Rams’ Awful Attendance in NFL Opener” – HuffPost – September 11, 2017
I believe that God is using the decline of the NFL and other things like hurricanes and the eclipse to get the attention of this nation. In Daniel 2:21, the Bible tells us that, “He controls the course of world events; He removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars.” It is easy to naïvely think that the God of the Bible has no clue what is going on in our society. Not only does God know precisely what is going on in our world, He is also actively bringing the plans He has for this Earth to fruition.

In Daniel 2:21, the Bible tells us that, “He controls the course of world events; He removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars.” Do you believe that God is trying to reveal Himself in many ways as we watch various events like the collapse of the NFL?
As we witness the collapse of the NFL, just know that this is another warning sign from God. Who exactly is God currently warning? He is warning organizations like the NFL and Disney to stop pushing biblical values out of our society. The God of the Bible is sending signs and wonders to those who do not believe He is real. God is also trying to wake the church up. I pray America heeds to these warning signs and see the signs of the times that we live in.

The Cardinals Way?

“Cardinals Will Host Pride Night in 2017, Team Says” – Riverfront Times – June 13, 2017
Dear Bill DeWitt,
Since you are the owner of the St. Louis Cardinals (Mr. DeWitt bought the team in 1995 for $150 million from the Busch family), the Cardinals have won two World Series (2006 and 2011), four National League pennants, and eight division titles, and have made a total of 11 playoff appearances. Not only have the Cardinals been exceptional on the field, but off the field as well. For example, the Cardinals established Cardinals Care in 1997, and to date, this non-profit has distributed over $18 million designed to help needy young people around St. Louis.
I’m writing this letter both to celebrate the Cardinals’ success and voice my concerns about the announcement that the St. Louis Cardinals recently made about hosting a gay pride night at Busch Stadium. I’m not completely shocked by my hometown baseball team’s decision to cave into the social pressure the Cardinals must be under to help promote homosexuality. After years of saying no to the LGBT community, my guess is that the Cardinals organization didn’t want to be labeled as bigoted or intolerant.
“LGBT Activists Demand St. Louis Cardinals Cancel Christian Athlete’s Speech” – Heat Street – June 17, 2017
I’m sure the homosexual community had probably been asking the Cardinals hard questions, such as: Why are the Cardinals hosting Christian Day at the ballpark every year and have not held any LGBT events? I actually understand that the above question and others are the kind of questions the LGBT community often confront sports teams with. The homosexual community’s constant push for acceptance is one reason why over 40% of MLB teams currently have some celebration design to celebrate homosexuality.
The LGBT Way vs. God’s Way
Even if every single baseball team in the major leagues agrees to celebrate homosexuality, this doesn’t mean the Cardinals should jump on what seems like an out-of-control freight train as the LGBT community seem to be railroading over Christian values. One of the reasons the Cardinals have been so successful over the years is that they don’t have a “follow the crowd” mentality. There are some who credit the Cardinals’ extraordinary success to what has been coined the “Cardinals Way.”
What is the Cardinals Way? From my little understanding of the Cardinals’ organization, the Cardinals have been committed to bringing in players who have a tremendous respect for the game of baseball. Plus, the Cardinals rarely give in to a win-now approach that sacrifices their future success by wasting millions of dollars on washed-up veteran players and unwisely trading away young prospects.
Just like the Cardinals have a way of running an organization, God has a way He wants each of us to live our lives. The Cardinals give each player and coach a handbook describing, in detail, the Cardinals Way. Meanwhile, God’s ways are outlined in the Bible. According to the Bible, homosexuality is a clear example of the waywardness we often see being celebrated by a growing number of sports teams, as we often ignore the negative realities about homosexuality.
As the owner of the Cardinals, you have probably shaken your head numerous times during a losing season and wondered if your organization has lost its way. Teaching little kids that it is acceptable to have sex with any gender, and at any time they want can’t be considered progress. In my view, we didn’t carefully consider, as a society, the type of values the LGBT community is bringing to our marketplace of ideals before we accepted this lifestyle as a normal part of our society. The Cardinals and other major league baseball teams who are hosting gay pride rallies are ultimately affirming a way of life that is destroying the moral fiber of our society.
“12 LGBT Nights at MLB games during this June’s Pride Month” – Outsports – April 26, 2017
Basically, instead of learning the fundamentals of the Bible, many young people are being taught that they can live any way that they want to, and there shouldn’t be any negative repercussions. Because we live in a society where a growing number of people don’t believe that God cares about the type of life we live, we are witnessing an increasing number of young people getting sex changes, having bisexual encounters, etc. Because our society no longer endorses a clear set of values, most kids are left to figure out what lifestyle works best for them. This is one reason why teen STDs, suicides, and other problems are skyrocketing.
As the owner of the St. Louis Cardinals, you know that there needs to be a clear set of standards that every player, coach, and the general manager need to follow in order for an organization to be run successfully. If members of the Cardinals organization are not serious about following the Cardinals Way, at some point, they will become a detriment to the goals of your organization. Please ask yourself, is the Cardinals promotion of homosexuality helping or hurting God’s goals He has for every individual who enjoys a game at Busch Stadium?
Overall, the St. Louis Cardinals have consistently been an asset to the St. Louis community. Yet, if the Cardinals start to host gay pride nights, this notable franchise will become a chess pawn that the LGBT community will use to continue to help push God out of our society strategically. I get the fact that you may or may not be a Christian. Yet, even if you don’t believe in God, you and I both know it can’t be okay to tell young people to be proud to live a lifestyle that promotes sexual promiscuity.
Would the Cardinals fire a coach if the organization found out he was telling players not to hustle to first base? Of course. Why? The Cardinals understand that the direction an organization goes is a direct reflection of what people in that organization are being taught. If you believe that God is real and He has a set of standards for each of us to live by, just know that the LGBT community is encouraging each of us to rebel against God.
The LGBT community is actively forcing business owners like you to participate in a culture war you probably didn’t sign up for. Keep in mind that, what you do with this moment is more important than any trade or draft pick you will ever make. The second someone thinks it is okay for two men to get married, is the moment they stop taking the Bible seriously. As you ponder whether you will continue to support the homosexual community’s crusade against traditional family values, keep in mind that the LGBT community can hurt your business or even your reputation, but they don’t have a heaven or a hell to put you into.
The LGBT Resistance
Every organization has some type of chart describing their chain of command, including the Cardinals. If God is not on top of our personal chain of command, we will tend to make decisions that don’t align with His agenda. If you have not noticed, the LGBT community has an entirely different mission than the God of the Bible has. Keep in mind that, it is problematic when someone tries to rally around LGBT causes and attempts to be devoted to serving the God of the Bible all at the same time. Supporting both the homosexual agenda and Christianity is like if players showed up as a St. Louis Cardinal all dressed up in a Chicago Cubs uniform.
It hasn’t served our society well for the LGBT community to try to get everyone to accept their lifestyle. I’m personally a proud member of the “LGBT Resistance.” I can’t accept something that God has rejected. I don’t know about you, but rejecting the ways of God is off the table for me. Someone spending their life supporting values God detest is not a life well spent.
The Bible tells us, “There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.” – Proverbs 14:12 Don’t be fooled, the LGBT community is not helping point people in the right direction. As we witness a generation of young people struggling to learn the difference between good and evil, I think some of the blame for the chaos we often witness in our society can often be attributed to the LGBT way. Keep in mind that, any way of life that leads people away from God is a dead end.
“Christian soccer star refuses to wear rainbow uniform promoting LGBT” – Lifesite – June 12, 2017
Mr. DeWitt, please choose today, whom you will serve. If the LGBT community is right, then support them. However, if you feel that the God of the Bible is right, then totally devote yourself to Him. Don’t let the LGBT community fool you; they tend to lead people to believe that God just accepts everyone and everything no matter what they stand for. Despite what the homosexual community may try to get you to believe, one of these days, we will all figure out that Jesus Christ is the only true way.

20 Reasons Why Homosexuality is Destroying America

I spent this NFL season educating people on the dangers of homosexuality and how the NFL has been exploiting the poor. Because this is my last edition of “Faith, Family & NFL Football” this season, I consider this the Super Bowl Edition. There won’t be a halftime show or any funny commercials, but plenty of useful information. I might not be able to stop the NFL from celebrating homosexuality like it did during Super Bowl 50 (Carolina Panthers 10 vs. Denver Broncos 24), but this Super Bowl Edition will help me to continue to educate the NFL about the dangers of the homosexual agenda.

  1. Young people thrive best with biological parents.

Homosexual families cause kids to grow up either without a mother or father in their home. Social science research shows that children thrive best when raised by their own biological mother and father who are committed to one another in a life-long marriage. One reason homosexuals are sinning against God is that the homosexual community often doesn’t care what a kid is missing out on not having both a mother and father in the home.

“Family structure, stability both benefit children” – Washington Times – July 20, 2016

  1. The homosexual community is becoming one of the biggest special interest groups in America.

The homosexual community has helped America to pick leaders who don’t believe that biblical values should be the center of America’s culture. The homosexual community has become one of the biggest special interest groups in America diligently lobbying government officials to pass laws that are unbiblical and that benefit homosexuals, not our society. The more the homosexual community has pushed for gay rights (special rights), the more it has pushed biblical values out of our society.

  1. Homosexual couples often leave a legacy that causes children to turn away from Christianity.

A child raised in a homosexual home is often less likely to have a relationship with Jesus Christ that leads them to accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior than in a home that features a traditional family committed to living by biblical standards. If parents don’t take the Word of God seriously, they often pass that same legacy down to their children. Many homosexual homes are adding to a growing problem of young people who don’t know or serve the God of the Bible.

  1. Political correctness is taking over America as Americans are being pushed to accept homosexuality.

Because the LGBT community often feels rejected, this has caused many homosexuals to believe that people who have high moral standards are practicing bigotry if they disagree with their lifestyle. Partly because of homosexuality, there is a new level of political correctness in our society where people don’t tolerate others with different viewpoints as them. Ultimately, homosexuality has helped to divide America as people are often demonized if they try to live by a value system that rejects homosexuality.

“Bigotry? Hatred? Christians say they’re tired of being made into the bad guys” – religionnews.com – November 23, 2015

  1. Gay pastors and leaders are helping to water down the Church.

Both nonbelievers and believers often don’t take Christianity seriously when gay pastors and leaders are allowed within the Church. If the Church doesn’t take the Bible’s position on homosexuality seriously, it sends the wrong message that the Bible shouldn’t be obeyed. If the Church doesn’t obey the Bible, how can it teach the world the importance of obeying God’s Word?

  1. Bisexuality helps to lower the moral standards of a nation.

Bisexuality is currently helping to further the ongoing moral decline of this nation. For instance, when you tell young people that it is okay to sleep with whatever gender they feel like, this helps to turn sex in their minds into a meaningless experience that is not to be saved for marriage. Because of a lack of values, we are seeing a sexual free-for-all where a growing number of people are making up their own rules about sex to fit their sexual appetite.

“America May Be Heading Into an STD Epidemic and Gay and Bi Men Are Going to Be the Hardest Hit” – Slate – January 16, 2017

  1. America is currently losing God’s favor as a nation partly because of homosexuality.

As America continues to embrace the homosexual agenda, it will invite God’s wrath over this nation. Whether the lack of fathers in homes, the skyrocketing amount of STDs or the many other unintended consequences of rejecting biblical values, we are slowly seeing our society crumble. Many in the homosexual community currently are fooling many Americans to believe that we don’t need to build this country based on a biblical foundation.

  1. Homosexuals often ignore God’s intelligent design in terms of how God created men and women.

God designed men and women with the ability to complement each other and enjoy one another as they build a life and family together. Many in the homosexual community are trying to redefine what is natural. As we are getting away from developing natural relationships designed by God, we will continue to ignore God’s great handy work in not only how He created human beings but also how He created this planet.

 “No Scientific Evidence That People Are Born Gay or Transgender” – Christian Post – August 22, 2016

  1. The Bible doesn’t make it abundantly clear whether those practicing homosexuals are saved even though they profess that they are Christians.

The Bible tells us, “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” (Philippians 2:12). I often wonder if a person is saved if he or she will continue living a sinful lifestyle like homosexuality even after asking Jesus Christ into his or her heart. At the end of the day, what do you want me to tell you about homosexuality: Just live whatever lifestyle you want to live and the gates of heaven will be wide open for you if you follow John 3:16?

  1. Some homosexuals are adding to and subtracting from the Word of God.

The homosexual community has often tried to demean the credibility of the Bible. They feel that God has rejected them, so they not only reject the Bible but often want others to do the same. The homosexual community has even tried to change the Bible to make it seem like God is okay with homosexuality. Partly because of the homosexual community, the Bible is losing credibility in our society.

  1. Legalizing gay marriage encourages other groups to legally explore their unhealthy sexual passions.

Have you noticed we are becoming more and more accepting as a nation of different sinful lifestyles? Because of our acceptance, soon a group of people will try to fight to legalize having sex with kids. As we continue to embrace different lifestyles, we will see different groups coming forward looking to be accepted because we are pushing out the Bible as the cornerstone of our society.

  1. Homosexuality is helping to destroy traditional marriage.

Fewer people are getting married and there are a growing number of people who have no clue how to function in a traditional marriage. In the past, it was a parent’s job to model good habits of a successful spouse and show their children how to function in a marriage. As homosexual families continue to try to take over the marriage setting, there will be fewer couples who will be able to train the next generation on how to be good husbands and wives inside of a traditional marriage.

  1. Homosexuality is a form of genocide.

To have kids, the LGBT community is currently doing some unsafe things like experimenting with ways for men to have babies. Keep in mind, it has been the heterosexual community that has populated the earth for thousands of years. Homosexuality can be viewed as a form of genocide because homosexual couples can’t have babies naturally.

  1. The homosexual community is making it harder for Christians to practice their faith.

The homosexual community has successfully redefined what it means to be discriminated against. For instance, there are some in the LGBT community who are trying to sue churches because some pastors don’t want to conduct gay marriages. Because the homosexual community is successfully convincing America that they are being discriminated against, it is going to get harder for Christians to live out their faith.

  1. The homosexual community uses pride as its central theme.

The Bible tells us that God hates pride. Yet, the homosexual community has chosen to use pride as its theme, even though the Bible makes it clear that being a homosexual is nothing to be proud of. As homosexuals work towards validation, it is almost like they are trying to prove to themselves that God was wrong about homosexuality.

  1. Homosexuals are redefining what sin really is.

I believe that God wants each of us to spend our lives overcoming different temptations designed to destroy our lives. The world is becoming a worse place because more people than ever are falling to ungodly temptations that are producing a growing number of pedophiles, people who participate in bestiality and all types of ungodly lifestyles. Because the LGBT community is trying to teach us that homosexuality and other temptations are not sins, there are a growing number of people engaging in all types of unhealthy lifestyles.

  1. Homosexuality has helped to redefine what a good man or woman is in our society.

When men stop acting like men and women stop acting like women, the opposite sex begins to simply use each other for sex and companionship. People are often attracted to the opposite sex for particular reasons. For example, women love a man with a steady job and men love women who are respectful. A growing number of people are only offering sex and companionship instead of learning to meet the relationship needs of the opposite sex. The homosexual community helped to create the friends-with-benefits culture by pushing for a unisex society where a growing number of people stop learning to meet the needs of the opposite sex.

  1. People supporting the homosexual agenda are on the wrong side of history.

People supporting the homosexual agenda will leave a legacy of promoting ungodly values. If we support homosexuality, we will give an account on judgment day to God as to why we supported an ungodly lifestyle. Just because something is socially acceptable, doesn’t mean it is morally right.

  1. The once primarily heterosexual society is quickly declining as homosexuality takes over.

A homosexual and heterosexual society can’t coexist with each other in the same society. Sooner or later, one will overpower the other one. Whether mixed-sex bathrooms, the death of traditional marriage or the right to call homosexuality a sin, we will continue to see a growing number of changes in our society to the point where we won’t be able to recognize a once thriving heterosexual society.

  1. God made each of us on purpose, with a purpose, and for His purposes.

When people have sex changes, they either don’t believe God made them as male or female for a reason or feel like God made a mistake when He created them. Transgenders often either don’t care or believe that they were uniquely made to accomplish a purpose while they are on this earth. Ultimately, sex changes often make it harder for people to become who God created them to be.

The Walking Dead Part 1: ESPN

Each of us will either use the platforms we have been given to promote ungodliness or biblical values. Did you know that ESPN is clearly using their massive platform to help push God out of mainstream America? For example, during its annual ESPY Awards in 2014 and 2015, ESPN decided to give courage awards to Michael Sam and Bruce Jenner because one is gay and the other had a sex change. This is not surprising since ESPN has actively promoted the homosexual agenda.

ESPN has had a historic run as the best sports network ever. I believe that God is currently punishing some organizations that have decided to promote the homosexual agenda. Consequently, ESPN is among the walking dead: Companies that are under God’s judgment that will collapse in the next couple of years for promoting ungodly values.

“ESPN Loses 621,000 Subscribers; Worst Month In Company History” – Outkick the Coverage – October 29, 2016

I also believe ESPN is a critical piece of the puzzle in terms of how God will bring judgment to the sports world for its part in promoting the homosexual agenda. When ESPN goes out of business, this could be devastating to the sports world. For example, ESPN gives the NFL $1.9 billion each year to televise Monday Night Football. That almost $2 billion represents about 15 percent of what the NFL will take in during the 2016 season (the NFL is projected to make about $13 billion 2016).

What about the NBA, has it been promoting the homosexual agenda as well? Did you know ESPN pays the NBA $1.73 billion a year for the rights to televise its games? The $5.2 billion in revenue NBA teams generated in 2015 was a record. So nearly 25 percent of the NBA’s total revenue comes from ESPN. Let’s not forget about the NCAA? ESPN also gives them over a billion dollars each year to televise this league’s events and games as well.

“NBA, WNBA Are First Pro Sports Leagues to March in NYC LGBT Pride Parade” – Washington Post – June 7, 2016

As you can see, sports leagues like the NBA and college basketball are making billions of dollars off TV revenues. How else do you think the NBA can afford to pay players like Timofey Mozgov of Los Angeles Lakers a four-year deal worth $64m? So, when money from television dries up, so will the revenues of most of these leagues.

“Millennials are over watching sports on TV” – Messenger Inquirer – November 26, 2016

Why are TV networks like ESPN disappearing? Millennials are abandoning cable TV as a group. When cable TV goes away, this will seriously hurt the sports industry. Here are three reasons why Millennials will help crash the cable TV and sports industry very soon:

  1. I believe that millennials have a deep belief that things like music, movies, and following sports should be free. So, a Millennial would much rather buy a big screen TV to watch their favorite team play than spend thousands of dollars for a season ticket.
  2. There are a growing number of options for entertainment other than cable TV (Netflix, Hulu, social media, etc.). The average Netflix subscription is $7.99. Meanwhile, the average cable bill is $99.10.
  3. Millennials are not loyal to hometown teams like the previous generations have been, especially, if their hometown team is losing. So, most Millennials won’t watch or pay to see a losing team.

I believe not only will ESPN collapse but also other sources of TV revenue leagues that the NBA have counted on for years will dry up as Millennials continue to turn their backs on traditional TV. Just like ESPN won’t be able to pay the outrageous prices it cost to televise NFL and NBA games, I believe cable networks like TNT will face similar problems. If almost half of the NBA’s revenue comes from cable TV networks, can it survive if almost half its revenue is gone?

“ESPN Fires Curt Schilling Over Anti-Transgender Post” – Deadline – April 20, 2016

Yes, if ESPN falls, it will help bring down the sports world with it. Below are four things that have helped to shape ESPN’s legacy as we see how devastating the fall of ESPN would be to the sports world:

  1. ESPN helped many professional sports athletes get mega contracts.

Have you noticed that the amount of money professional athletes get paid has skyrocketed over the years? Andrew Luck is the highest paid player in the NFL. He currently earns an average of $24.5 million a year. Joe Montana and other elite quarterbacks during the early ‘90s typically made about $3 million a year. Troy Aikman was once the highest paid quarterback when the Dallas Cowboys signed him to an eight-year deal for $50 million dollars in 1993.

Skyrocketing players’ salaries is currently happening in the NBA as well. During most of Michael Jordan’s NBA career, he only made about $2 million dollars a year in salary. In Jordan’s 17-year career, he made a total of about $94 million. It was not until near the end of Jordan’s career that he started to see his salary jump. Chicago did give Jordan a one-year deal worth $33 million in 1997. In 2016, there were 29 players in the NBA who make over $20 million a year in salary.

Are the fans spending more money to see their favorite teams play than what they used to? Yes. But the amount fans pay for a ticket to a game can’t explain the fact that Andrew Luck makes an average of $20 million more a year than what Joe Montana made. If you track the amount of money the different sports leagues earn in TV revenue, you will have a clear picture why professional athletes make so much money.

“Report: NFL salary cap could reach $153.4M in 2016, up from $143.28M” – CBSSports.com – December 4, 2015

ESPN pours billions of dollars each year into sports leagues for the rights to broadcast their games. For example, in 2017, ESPN will spend $7.3 billion on content—more than any source, then Netflix ($6bn), NBC ($4.3bn), CBS ($4bn) & Amazon ($3.2bn). Most of the money ESPN is spending on content is going to sports leagues like the NFL and NBA. The NFL uses some of the money it earns from ESPN and other TV networks to pay players like Andrew Luck. If ESPN were to collapse, many players would have to take a huge pay cut.

  1. ESPN has helped to drive up the price of televising NFL games.

The NFL makes billions of dollars from the rights to broadcast its games. Why?  There are numerous TV networks willing to pay big bucks to televise the NFL. Some networks like ESPN have been willing to pay more than others. Let’s look at the history of Monday Night Football (MNF), with the goal to help you understand just how much ESPN has helped the NFL’s TV revenue grow.

The ABC TV network started broadcasting MNF in 1970. At the beginning of MNF, ABC paid the NFL $8.5 million per season. When ABC finished broadcasting MNF in 2005, it was paying the NFL $550 million per season.

“ESPN Pays Top Dollar for Football, but Audience Isn’t Buying” – New York Times – November 28, 2016

When ESPN took over Monday Night Football from ABC, it started paying the NFL $1.1 billion a year to televise MNF—twice the amount of what ABC was paying.  In ESPN’s second contract with the NFL, which it signed in 2011, ESPN agreed to pay the NFL $1.9 billion a year to broadcast MNF. Over the last 10 years, the price to broadcast MNF has nearly tripled since ESPN has taken over MNF. ESPN’s reckless spending has been the number one reason why sports leagues have been able to make so much money over the last couple of years off of television revenue.

  1. ESPN set the new standard in sports journalism.

Before ESPN, sports on TV was usually reduced to 5 to 10-minute segments on the evening news. ESPN pretty much invented sports shows that helped to better engage sports fans. Shows like First Take (Skip Bayless vs Stephen A. Smith) and Pardon the Interruption (Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon) have taken sports talk shows to a new level. Sports fans also appreciated ESPN’s shows like E60 and Outside the Lines. ESPN gave sports fans a fresh and new look at sports beyond what we see on the field.

“First Take to Move From ESPN2 to ESPN in Effort to Stop Falling Ratings” – New York Times – November 28, 2016

  1. ESPN helped sports fans to have more choices when watching sporting events.

If you grew up before the early ‘80s, then, you probably remember only being given a chance to watch a couple of sporting events on the weekends. Thanks to ESPN, sports fans have plenty of sports to watch almost every day of the year. For instance, college football fans can sit on their couch for most of December and a couple of weeks in January and enjoy bowl games almost every day. Thirty years ago, college football bowl games were mostly on TV during New Year’s Day. If ESPN was not around anymore, most sports leagues would have less opportunity to promote their products to sports fans.

History Makers

This week, we are looking at how ESPN has made history, and I also want to take a brief look at the history of the gay rights movement. No one knows who the first gay man or woman was. We can only guess where homosexuality started. But the gay rights movement has been well documented, as millions of people have fought to see homosexuality become socially accepted in this country.

The gay rights movement has been around for over a hundred years. One of the biggest names in the movement is a gay rights activist by the name of Harry Hay. In 1951, Mr. Hay started the first national gay rights organization called the Mattachine Society. Since then, there have been numerous organizations designed to further gay rights. These organizations have had several victories that have helped to further gay rights. Of course, the gay community’s biggest victory was when the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage in 2015.

“ESPN Hires Lesbian Hillary Supporter Abby Wambach After Firing Curt Schilling Over Transgender Views” – christianpost.com – May 6, 2016

We have also seen gays who have made history. For example, Michael Sam will go down in the history books as the first openly gay professional football player. You probably know that February is Black History Month. Did you know that October is considered Gay History Month in America?

Wrong Side of History

One day, those who have spent their lives fighting for gay rights will figure out that they were on the wrong side of history. One of the worst things a person can do is come to the end of his life and find out that he promoted something that is against God’s ideals. The truth is, even though we are a part of history, few people will make history. I would rather just be a part of history than make the wrong type of history.

“California to Add LGBT Rights Movement to Public School Curriculum” – ATTN – July 18, 2016

Harry Hay, who became one of the first well-known nationwide gay rights activists, will have his name mentioned in a lot of history books. There are probably millions of people who love and respect Mr. Hay for what he accomplished as a gay rights activist. The question is whether the God of the Bible in heaven is celebrating Mr. Hay and others who have been a part of the gay rights movement.  Just because homosexuality has become socially acceptable does not mean that someone promoting it is on the right side of history. There are plenty of people who have made history but have been on the wrong side of it.

Do you think George Wallace, the former governor of Alabama during the Civil Rights Movement, wished he could go back in time and change his place in history? At the time, segregating Blacks in the South from Whites was socially acceptable but morally wrong. Despite what you think about homosexuality, it is socially acceptable, but the Bible tells us it is morally wrong.

You might be saying to yourself, “Is it true that discrimination of any kind is morally wrong?” I can agree with that to an extent. Should Michael Sam be able to play in the NFL or do any type of job he is qualified to do? No question. Should he be able to get married to another man? Absolutely not!  I am not discriminating against gays if I don’t believe in gay marriage. I am simply upholding a moral standard laid out in the Bible.

“Sports Writer Calls Gay Marriage Proposal During Bulls Game a ‘Groundbreaking Moment in Sports’” – Breitbart News – December 10, 2016

History books nowadays tend to favor people who did what was socially acceptable. God will partly judge our lives based on the decisions we made that were morally right. We all must decide what side of history we want to be in terms of homosexuality. ESPN will go down in history as a great sports network, but on the wrong side of history as far as promoting the homosexual agenda is concerned. Ultimately, God determines who is on the right or wrong side of history, not someone writing a history book.

NFL’s Broken Legacy?

I get the fact that the NFL and ESPN want to be remembered for fighting against discrimination. It has become common for people to stand up for gay rights with the idea that they are improving our society, which has often tolerated discrimination. Yet, in standing up for gay rights, ESPN and the NFL are forfeiting a great opportunity to honor God with the huge platforms they have been given. Keep in mind that one can’t promote biblical values and homosexuality at the same time. The NFL and ESPN have chosen to do what is popular and not what is right.

“Teen stands up against transgender students in locker room” – lehighvalleylive.com – August 24, 2016

One day when we read about the NFL in history books, what will historians say about this league? I wouldn’t blame people if they were to focus on things like, “Who was the greatest quarterback ever?” or debate, “What was the greatest team of all time?” In view, entertainment wise, the NFL has been a valuable asset. Yet, the most profitable sports league ever is currently working towards becoming the least valuable league when it comes to its worth to this nation. Mr. Goodell, do you think the NFL is leaving behind the type of legacy God can be proud of? If the NFL doesn’t change, history books may be kind to the NFL, but God won’t be.

The Walking Dead Part 2: Disney

I am sure most of the NFL owners came into the 2016 season confident that the NFL TV ratings and the league, in general, would flourish just like it did over the years. If you have been reading my column “Faith, Family & NFL Football” for any length of time, you won’t be surprised to hear me predicting that in 2017, we will see the NFL hit another major roadblock. I believe there will be a major dispute between the NFL players and the NFL owners in 2017 that will continue to drive millions of NFL fans away like what we saw when Colin Kaepernick protested the national anthem.

The End of Disney

Beyond the NFL, please keep your eyes on Disney in 2017. This company has been one of the biggest supporters of gay rights over the years. Disney is made up of three major divisions: Movie Studio (Star Wars franchise, Marvel Movies, etc.), Theme Parks (Disneyland, Magic Kingdom Park, etc.) and Television Networks (ESPN, ABC, Disney Channels, etc.). Traditionally, ESPN has been one of Disney’s biggest sources of revenue in its TV division. Marvel movies such as Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange are some of Disney’s biggest money makers in its movie studio division. Disney World is one of Disney’s most lucrative sources of revenue as far as its theme parks are concerned.

In 2017, two things will happen to Disney that will be significant to the future of the company. The first, ESPN (one of Disney’s biggest sources of revenue) will lose a record number of subscribers during 2017. Keep in mind that over the last five years, ESPN has been losing about 300,000 subscribers a month. It was reported that ESPN lost 621,000 subscribers for the month of November 2016. This was a record number of lost subscribers for ESPN and was particularly shocking because it occurred in ESPN’s best month for programming.  Furthermore, ESPN lost another 555,000 subscribers per Nielsen in December. That means ESPN lost 1.2 Million subscribers in only two months.

“Disney, Say Yes to Queer Characters” – Daily Breast – January 19, 2016

In the months of November and December, ESPN features college football bowl games, NBA basketball, Monday Night Football and the start of the college basketball season. Typically, ESPN loses most of its subscribers in the summer when the network features monster truck racing, softball, and other low-quality content. I believe a tremendous loss in subscribers in 2017 will lead to the end of ESPN. As subscriptions decline, I believe ESPN will not be able to continue paying the over $7 billion to leagues like the NFL, NBA, and NCAA over the next couple of years.

The second major event concerning Disney in 2017 will be some type of public relations crisis that will hit one of Disney’s theme parks, causing millions of potential customers not to want to go there anymore. This public relations crisis will have something to do with poor customer service. Despite all of Disney’s efforts to fix this problem, it will only make it worse as customers will get so angry that they will begin to question Disney’s reputation. The public relations crisis will cause Disney to lose billions of dollars in revenue.

“’Finding Dory’ Trailer Hints at Disney-Pixar’s First Lesbian Couple” – Us Weekly – May 30, 2016

ESPN’s subscriber problems and the decline of the Disney’s theme park attendance will cause Disney’s stock price to hit a historical low. Many investors will lose confidence in Disney to meet their earnings expectations. Meanwhile, Disney’s movie division will continue to flourish in 2017. Disney’s movies brought in over $7 billion in ticket sales in 2016, which is a record for them. Expect Disney to have another banner year at the box office in 2017. If Disney doesn’t turn from supporting the homosexual agenda in 2017, then it will see a major decline in its movie division as well in 2018.

Sodom and Gomorrah?

You might be asking yourself, “Why would God punish Disney?” Do you know that over the years. Disney has been one of the largest supporters of the homosexual agenda? Disney has been on the forefront of the struggles for gay rights for almost 30 years. Below are four examples of how passionate Disney is about gay rights:

  1. Disney’s first annual Gay Days in 1991 has grown to become one of the largest gay pride events in the world, with over 150,000 LGBT attendees each year.
  2. Traditionally, companies have primarily given benefits to an employee’s husband or wife if the person was legally married. Since 1995, Disney has given health benefits to same-sex couples even though they were not legally married.
  3. Not only has Disney been one of the first organizations to recognize same-sex marriage, Disney has allowed same-sex wedding ceremonies at its resort since 2007.
  4. In general, Disney doesn’t do business with states, organizations or people it thinks discriminate against gays.

“Disney threatens to stop filming in Georgia if anti-gay bill becomes law” – Los Angeles Times – March 23, 2016

I believe over the years, God has observed Disney help push traditional family values out of mainstream America.  After years of grace, I’m predicting that 2017 will be a year that God will punish companies like Disney and the NFL that are willing to try to bully churches to conduct gay marriages and help influence our society into thinking that homosexuality is not a real sin.

Do gay couples make good parents?

ABC purchased ESPN in 1994 and Disney acquired ABC in 1995. Disney is the parent company of both ESPN and ABC. I believe that parenting is one of the most important jobs someone can ever take on in life. This week, I want to look at whether gay couples can make quality parents. Of the 594,000 same-sex couple households in the US, 115,000 have children. Researchers estimate the total number of children nationwide living with at least one gay parent ranges from 6 to 14 million.

There are many people within and outside the homosexual community who think homosexuals make just as good parents as heterosexuals. Can I take a moment to crush this myth? What is the number one job of a parent? Most people will say it is to make sure a child gets a quality education. If making sure a child obtains a quality education is the most important criteria to being a great parent, then yes, homosexuals make just as good parents as heterosexual parents.

“Barna: Only 3 percent of teens read Bible daily” – One News Now – August 28, 2016

I personally believe the number one job of a parent is to help a child develop a healthy relationship with Jesus Christ. If you believe that parents teaching and modeling biblical values are critical to a child’s development, you know that homosexuals don’t make the most effective parents. One of the ways parents help their kids learn about God is by modeling a biblical lifestyle. If a child doesn’t see his or her parents take the Word of God seriously, most likely that child will grow up feeling like the Bible should be just another book in his or her personal library.

Kids who grow up in a traditional family have a greater chance of accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior than with gay parents. Why? If homosexual parents try to have Bible study with their kids, then take them to a gay pride rally the next day, that child in most cases will get confused about whether the Bible is worth obeying. This same reality happens in heterosexual homes as well. If a heterosexual couple takes a child to church, but doesn’t model biblical values during the week, more than likely that child will end up rejecting God.

“Adoption Ban for Christian Foster Carers who Objected to Gay Parents” – Breitbart News – November 7, 2016

When it comes to kids, you can’t expect children to heed parents’ advice and ignore their example. This is one reason we see a generation of young people who have rejected the God of the Bible. A growing number of kids are growing up in homes where their parents have dismissed traditional family values. Since helping children live out biblical values is vastly becoming outdated, many people have accepted homosexuals as parents. If you are concerned about where people will spend eternity, this is one of the biggest reasons we need to continue to wrestle with gay marriage.

God-fearing parents tend to produce God-fearing kids. We are in trouble as a country if the number of God-fearing parents continues to decline. Organizations like Disney and the NFL want to not only push biblical values out of our society but also fundamentally change the structure of the average American home. They have a problem with a married man and woman living in a home where the Bible serves as the foundation of the family.

War on Christianity

What does the war on Christianity look like? The NCAA announced that it will not hold any men’s and women’s Final Four basketball events in a city that “discriminates” against anyone based on sexual orientation or gender identity. When the NCAA decided to boycott states that want to protect pastors from conducting gay marriages, it taught the next generation that there is absolutely nothing wrong with homosexuality and the Bible shouldn’t be taken seriously.

“NCAA Says Future Final Four Host Cities Must Have LGBT Inclusive Non-Discrimination Laws” – Human Rights Campaign – April 28, 2016

As biblical values keep getting pushed out of our society, is America aware of what has been taking the place of traditional family values? According to federal data, the number of sexually transmitted disease cases reached a record high in the United States in 2015. Of the 20 million new STD cases reported in 2015, half involved men and women between 15 to 24-years old. I bet many of the millions of young people who are getting these STDs are getting their morality from groups like the NCAA and Disney, rather than the Bible. Maybe the NCAA should stick to college sports and leave God to tell people how to live their lives.
