Words to the Body of Christ
Teaching the Everlasting Gospel of God's Kingdom
George and Jeannie Kirkpatrick, Authors
We have all heard about the corruption in professional sports, how these young men who are overpaid and made rich at an early age, do not have the responsibility to handle their wealth. Many seem to constantly be in trouble with the law for carrying guns, drunken brawls, use of steroids, drugs, and sexual improprieties. So we are not surprised when we hear of their latest escapades.
We need to ask ourselves which sports do you think are guilty of the following:
36 have been accused of espousal abuse
7 have been arrested for fraud
19 have been accused of writing bad checks
117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted two or more businesses
3 have done time for assault
71 cannot get a credit card
14 have been arrested on drug related charges
8 have been arrested for shoplifting
21 are defendants in lawsuits
84 have been arrested for drunk driving during the past year
So which of the sports do you think would be guilty of such things?
The answer . . .
These crimes were not committed by those who play sports. These crimes were committed by the 535 members of the United States Congress.
This same criminal element cranks out hundreds of new laws each year to take away our freedoms and keep us subjected to their hypocrisy.
One further note: These well-dressed hypocrites have just voted themselves $ 15,000 per month retirement for life, after they serve only one term in Congress. Many are spending extended time in prison for doing less.
It is not our intention to demean those who participate in sports. Some of these men and women play their whole careers with no blemish on their name or the sport they play. They manage their money well, and are able to have a future in business. Our hats off to these who are role models for your young people. I wish we could say the same for today's politicians who seem to fit in the same category with used car salesmen and tele-marketers.
