Wisdom is more precious than Adam Silver and Donald Sterling. Lessons for the church from the NBA.

Even though I love basketball, I already boycotted attending live NBA games because of the cheerleaders and the music they played last time I went… If there’s no room for racist Donald Sterling in the NBA, then how come there’s so much room for lust, curses, adultery and iniquity in our souls? If Christians responded with as much passion for holiness as they do for homosexuality issues and race issues we’d have nothing to worry about. Don’t complain about something and support it at the same time! The world doesn’t have the authority, we do!

In other words: Businesses make decisions according to the moral code of their customers. Christians and Ministries make decisions according to the moral code of God. So if we are not making decisions according to God’s moral code, why are we complaining about a business making a decision based on their moral code? If we made our decisions right, they’d be making their decisions to please us!!!!

The Bible actually teaches that “there’s no room for fornicators in your church” yet we will turn a blind eye to all the iniquity and sin that fills the church while we get hype about Donald Sterling. The Bible teaches that Overseers should be the husbands of one wife and not covetous. Yet scandal after scandal and we continue to “stay submitted” to man rather than God.

We don’t get justice or holiness because we don’t value respect for God’s name like LeBron James values respect for black basketball players. We don’t cry out in prayer, or teach against sin so we don’t get swift justice and decisive action for holiness from God like NBA players received from Adam Silver.

When will the world change? When the church changes.
