Can Sports Be an Idol?

At Faith, we are proud of our sports teams. We are also thankful for a coaching staff dedicated to instilling godly character into each player and to making FCS teams better each year.

Sports are fun. They are also great life learning experiences – helping players learn team work, character, discipline, and hard work.

We want to extract all the life learning opportunities we can out of athletics. However, there is a ditch we need to be very aware of:  Sports as an idol. To learn more on this topic, click here to view a helpful article from The Gospel Coalition on the idol of sports.
