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

“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

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

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

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

quote

“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.  First century Christians did not participate in any sports or entertainment, they were actually victims of them.  In the Roman Coliseums, 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 that you love more than Jesus is an idol, I don’t care what it is."   -Leonard Ravenhill

“Oh that God would humble me deeply in the dust before Him! I deserve Hell every day for not loving my Lord more, who has, I trust, loved me and given Himself for me.” -David Brainerd

“There can be no question that the biggest hindrances to revival are sin, idolatry, covetousness, lust, selfishness, pride, prayerlessness, worldliness, sports, and entertainment.” -Johnson and Pearl

Galatians 5:24  King James Version
“And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts."

“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, no desire, and no time for any worldly TV, sports, entertainment, idols, and sin.” -Johnson and Pearl

Cross

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

“If revival is being withheld from us it is because some idol remains still enthroned; because we still insist in placing our reliance in human schemes.” -Jonathan Goforth.
