Haggai 2:9 King James Version
The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts.
2 Corinthians 3:6-11 King James Version
6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth life.
7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:
8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
9 For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.
11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.
“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
“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
“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
