ESPN = The Explicit and Sexually Perverted Network

ESPN, the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network as it is referred to, has become the MSM enabler of homosexuality and sexism gone amuck. It is safe to say that ESPN is the modern day equivalent of the Roman Coliseum, it is the depravity of human kind on display for all to see. What? Not ESPN?! Don't get me wrong. I'm not here to advocate a boycott. I'm here to point out how Lucifer can be so sublime that the angel of light, the great liar, can enter your own living room without you even knowing it. Because I enjoy watching ESPN SportsCenter and their many college basketball games, and I'm sure there are many of you out there that watch it as well, I had to blog about it so to put ESPN and those who watch it on notice. ESPN is a reflection of our culture, it is also an enabler as well. It is the zeitgeist so to speak. This can't be better said than that of ESPN. What's wrong of watching a highlight reel of another basketball player celebrating a great dunk or a football player dancing in the endzone after a touchdown you say? It tells us to disrespect our opponent and their fans that's what it does. Oh, it goes deeper than that. Much deeper. Lindsey Jacobellis is just the example of the 'ESPN' generation of viewing athletes hot-dogging it in wild celebrations after a score. She isn't the problem, she's the symptom. She was on her way to winning in convincing fashion her gold medal when she decided to celebrate with a trick, she unfortunately fell and came in second in her attempt to emulate those on ESPN who crow after a decisive score. This is just the tip of the iceberg. ESPN has bent over backwards to promote homosexuality in sympathetic articles of the 'burden' of a homosexuality inclined athlete that find acceptance with their teammates when they come out of the closet. ESPN fails to tell people that homosexuality is an act, not an identity and glosses over the act itself. For example Andrew Goldstein 'contemplated' his sexuality because of his 'failure' to procure a girlfriend. This so telling of popular culture in general it's almost to easy not to answer his problem! And that is he feels the pressure of any other teen to have a girlfriend yet because of his inability to meet society's standards, which is completely out of whack, he contemplates that he is a homosexual! By what upbringing did this young Andrew Goldstein decide to make a silly decision such as opting to be a homosexual because he can't score a date on a Saturday night? Sad. It gets worse. I love women's sports, especially women's volleyball and softball. But to shove it down our throats the way Title IX did at the expense of men's collegiate sports is a travesty. Sure enough with ESPN's heavy promotion of women's athletics and the WNBA glorifying the option of pursuing a career at the expense of motherhood we end up with Sheryl Swoopes 'choosing' to be a lesbian because of ESPN promoting women's athletics as a right and virtue above and beyond that of being a mother, which is the most virtuous and important role any woman can aspire to achieve. What happened here? Sheryl Swoopes got indoctrinated in believing that sports was the end all and be all of life. She pursued it with a passion that she failed to notice the homosexual influences involved in women's athletics. Especially when reaching the college and professional ranks. Women forgoing being a mother and society's redefinition of 'if it feels good, do it', ie, Nike's 'just do it', she obviously has become confused. At the very least she's honest about this by coming out and saying she 'chose' this lifestyle. Is this ESPN's fault? No, not exactly, but they have become the enabler in society. The sweet voice of innocence resonated in the most youthful of activities, sports. God warns us of those that speak of good in evil tongues... "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!" --Isaiah 5:20 OK, you're telling yourself I am looking too much into this? Well, when a major story on ESPN television is done on a homosexual coming out and no one blinks, that is devious! Understanding that ESPN itself is located in the liberal bastion of Connecticut where the creme-de-le-creme of New York city society resides, you have a better understanding of the heavy sodomite influences that is encroaching the producers, journalists, and sportscasters at ESPN. Here's another example, on ESPN's website they have an annual contest of the 'Hottest' looking female athletes out there. Objectifying women via a sports entity is one way Lucifer undermines society's view on sex, especially the objectifying of women. This is just an observation, something that needs to be noticed. Let's pray that ESPN doesn't succumb to secular society's promotion of sodom and gommorah.

In another forum the issue of homosexuality came up. This was my answer and feel free to disagree with me.

My Father who lives in Heaven, My Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit who live in me does not share the same blind hatered that many have of those who are different.

one person mentioned a couple of verses that have clearly been taken out of context. you mentioned Galatians 5:19-21 and Corinthians 6:9-10. In both examples paul is talking about the differents of the sinful nature vs the spiritual nature. He calls upon us to put to death all of the deeds of the body not just a select few. Now if homosexuals were first on his list of people not getting into heaven then why does it say

John 3:16-18 (NIV)

16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,[c] that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.[d]

In these verses it clearly states that all who believe shall be saved not just the ones who were good enough or who some how managed to stay sexually pure.

In Galatians it lists sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. So in Gods eyes rage, envy drunkeness along with sexual immorality is just as bad as homosexuality.

In 1 Corinthians 6 it states :

9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Again drunks, slanderers or swindler are listed along with homosexual offenders. And it also goes on to state that some of them were like that but that they were justified and sanctified in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Do you see a pattern here as I surely do. God hates all sin, all of the deeds of the human nature the same.

To single out one sin and put it above the rest creates a situation where Gays and Lesbians feel singled out by us and creates a situation where they feel hatered from us and therefore are not going to listen to any one because of it.

Do you want their blood on your hands because of your blind hatered? I don't. You can't reach people who you hate and we are told to love all equally.

Concerning the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah Their sin was so much more than homosexuality as indicated in Romans 1:21-25 and Jeremiah 23:13-14. They neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, They prophesied by Baal and led Israel astray and they committed adultery and lived a lie and They strengthen the hands of evildoers,so that no one turns from his wickedness.

Would Jesus approve of all of your actions and hatered of these people? If Jesus was around us today who would He be having supper with? Read the verses below and reconsider the errors of your ways.

Job 38:2

"Who is this that darkens my counsel
with words without knowledge?

John 8 (NIV)

1 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them.
3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group
4 and said to Jesus, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery.
5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?"
6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.
But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger.
7 When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."
8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
9 t this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there.
10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?"
11 "No one, sir," she said.
"Then neither do I condemn you," Jesus declared. "Go now and leave your life of sin."

and again

Mark 2 (NIV)

15 While Jesus was having dinner at Levi's house, many tax collectors and "sinners" were eating with him and his disciples, for there were many who followed him.
16 When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the "sinners" and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: "Why does he eat with tax collectors and 'sinners'?"
17 On hearing this, Jesus said to them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.

Refrences to original verses:

Galatians 5:15-30 (NIV)

15 If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other

Life by the Spirit

16 So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
17 For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want.
18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.
19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;
20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions
21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires.
25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

1 Corinthians 6 (NIV)

Lawsuits Among Believers

1 If any of you has a dispute with another, dare he take it before the ungodly for judgment instead of before the saints?
2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases?
3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life!
4 Therefore, if you have disputes about such matters, appoint as judges even men of little account in the church![a]
5 I say this to shame you. Is it possible that there is nobody among you wise enough to judge a dispute between believers?
6 But instead, one brother goes to law against another—and this in front of unbelievers!
7 The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated?
8 Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers.
9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Sexual Immorality

12 "Everything is permissible for me"—but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible for me"—but I will not be mastered by anything.
13 "Food for the stomach and the stomach for food"—but God will destroy them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.
15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never!
16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."
17 But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.
19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

Romans 1:10-26 (NIV)

God's Wrath Against Mankind

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness,
19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.
20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools
23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.
25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts.Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.

Jeremiah 23:13-15 (NIV)

13 "Among the prophets of Samaria I saw this repulsive thing:
They prophesied by Baal
and led my people Israel astray.
14 And among the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen something horrible:
They commit adultery and live a lie.
They strengthen the hands of evildoers,
so that no one turns from his wickedness.
They are all like Sodom to me;
the people of Jerusalem are like Gomorrah."
15 Therefore, this is what the LORD Almighty says concerning the prophets:
"I will make them eat bitter food
and drink poisoned water,
because from the prophets of Jerusalem
ungodliness has spread throughout the land."

May God bless you and keep you always.
