Punishing the body


Photo_082506_001.jpgI really don't enjoy sports. I went to a football game last night and had the profound experience of about 7 seconds of fun punctuated with 2 hours of supreme boredom. I was there for my daughter though so that much was worth it. While I was there I saw this truck pulled up to cheer on the opposing team. That wasn't such a big deal until I started to think about the message emblazoned on it.

Punish the Body… And the Head Will Die.

I'm still not sure what that was supposed to mean for a highschool football team. If anything it sounded like a commercial against highschool sports in favor of academics. Whatever the Bulldogs wanted to accomplish.
I wonder if somehow that is Satan's goal as it relates to Christ and the church.
