References to God

Thursday, September 13, 2007 2 comments

You see it all the time, at award shows, interviews and during sporting events. People are always giving recognition to God. I am glad for this, but at the same time can’t help to wonder if this has become a cliché of standard practice.

For example, people give credit to God for their talent, but at the same time demand or hold out for an unreasonable amount of money. This seems very hypocritical to me.

Likewise, after the terrorist attacks on 9/11 people were displaying signs and stickers everywhere saying “God bless America”. Was there a revival? Where are those signs and stickers now?

Of course you have people that openly express their faith like coach Tony Dungy and coach Lovie Smith who were the coaches in last year’s super bowl. The media emphasized two African American coaches in the super bowl. However, both coaches emphasized that they were Christians. (Article).

Anytime God is recognized in a positive way is a good thing, however produce good fruit like these two Christian coaches. I am not saying that people should stop the cliché actions, but a pseudo Christian act could be considered worse.
