Golden Duck Posted April 12, 2022 #26 Share Posted April 12, 2022 17 minutes ago, Mr Walker said: If this is true, then it also resembles some churches and how their members behave toward church leaders and even god If you don't like one team you swap allegiances to another or give up attending at all. Faith is put to the test every day If your team lets you down it can hurt I was pointing out the difference between a church/team and individual faith/belief (in the game or in the power of god ) You must have difernt psychological make up to me, and to many. Even the supporters of "wooden spooners" generally stay loyal( if critical ) and support each other In a church the hierarchy is often scrutinised by the members and the various levels of the church hierarchy itself. Basically my point is this Humans join churches for the same reasons they join any group, but particularly sporting clubs. The sporting club analogy is particularly bad. Sporting clubs are required to produce evidence on a weekly basis. Optimism may exist at the start of a season; but, that is not faith. No one is satisfied with the wooden spoon. The remedy is imtense individual judgment. The scrutiny of the various institutions was extraordinary. There is no judgement of the individual bit of behaviour. 3 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
