Publisher's Description

How should Christians respond to competition?


Overview

Americans compete in jobs, school, relationships, and politics. But is competition compatible with Christianity? In the ultimate sphere of competition the sports arena Christian athletes have tried to reconcile their faith with their profession. What are the implications for the rest of us as fans and as competitors in daily life?

LEADER'S GUIDE


    The Issue


Sample questions:


Is it consistent with Christian principles to want to win when it means someone else must lose?


Does competition have a legitimate place within the church?



    The Scriptures


Sample Scriptures:

Corinthians 9:24 27: What did Paul admire about the Greek games?

    The Application


Sample application questions:


What should be the main difference between the Christian and the non-Christian on the field?


Can sports competition be an acceptable form of worship to God?

    I wish that I could have found this article for free on the internet, but it was not available. It was short, but worth the cost and got the thinking gears turning on this subject. It would be nice to get a book for a detailed study and analysis, but this was enough for me at my current time and intetest level. This article was for me not reading about agreeable conclusions, but picking up on thoughts and hashing it out in your own experience, revelation, biblical learning, and faith walk/race.
