Or at least that is what many believe happened Monday night between Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions. I did not see the game, but did see the video of the "play" that "robbed" Detroit of its first win of the season.
If one objectively looks at the video, one sees Calvin Johnson (Megatron) catching a pass on 3rd and 1, then running toward the end zone, where he is tackled. While being tackled, a Seattle defender punches the ball out causing a fumble. It then bounces and looks to be heading out of the back of the end zone. Another Seattle defender then hits/pushes the ball out. If done intentionally it would be illegal and Detroit's ball on the 1 yard line. If not done intentionally, then it is Seattle ball. Game over.
No penalty was called.
After their sin In Genesis 3, Adam blames God and the woman (Eve, but she has not been given a name just yet), and the woman blames the serpent. They all point the finger to someone else. Yet all 3 are punished, because all 3 are responsible for their own actions.
Sports is big in America. So is pointing the finger and claiming to be a victim. But we must all take ownership for our decisions, our actions, our words, our thoughts. Because they only belong to one person: ME.
Pastor Terry, his wife and family came to Suedberg in 2003. There have great times, good times, and well, not so good times. But through it all God has been good. This blog will share the goodness of God as seen in the midst of the great, the good, and the not so good of our world.
