Sports and entertainment are definitely idols in God’s eyes

Sports and entertainment are the devil’s opium to the masses, meant as a substitute for joy from God.”  -Leonard Ravenhill

“The Church gives more time, thought, and money to recreation and sport than to prayer." – Samuel Chadwick

“Entertainment is the devil’s substitute for joy. The more joy you have in the Lord the less entertainment you need.”      -Leonard Ravenhill


“I don’t believe that Christianity today is true Christianity. It’s so worldly and sensual.  People say we have no king and queen in America.  I say we have a king in America, his name is sports, and his wife’s name is entertainment. Now I am convinced in my own heart that entertainment is the devil’s substitute for joy.  The more joy you have in the Lord, the less entertainment you need.”    -Leonard Ravenhill


“Anything that cools my love for Christ is the world." -John Wesley


“John Wesley said, “Anything that cools my love for Christ is the world."  And since sports and entertainment cools our love for Christ instead of heats it, sports and entertainment are definitely two worldly idols in God’s eyes.  First century Christians did not participate in any sports or entertainment, they were actually victims of them.  In the Roman Coliseum, Christians and their children were fed to the lions, and that was the origin of sports, entertainment, games, and competitions.  Oh, how carnal and worldly have the 21 Century Christians become!”  -Johnson and Pearl


“Anything you love more than Jesus Christ is an idol. I don’t care what it is."  -Leonard Ravenhill

“If you have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts, and if you have carried your cross everyday and denied self, then you will naturally have no need and no desire for any worldly TV, sports, and entertainment.”   -Johnson and Pearl


“The less power a church has, the more entertainment it has.” -Leonard Ravenhill

“A sinning man will stop praying, and a praying man will stop sinning.” -Leonard Ravenhill

“The person that truly loves God with all of his heart and persistently “desires" God’s revival, glory, and power; there is no need and no more room for sports, entertainment, and sinning." -Johnson and Pearl
