Post # 30; NE vs. Penn State noon today 11/12/11

It is 9:14 am as I write.  The kickoff is at noon.  It is the first day of rifle deer season here in Nebraska so the countryside is full of mostly men hunters out after a trophy buck or just meat for the freezer.  Drive out into the country and you can hear cannons going off all day long. 

The pedophile scandal has been all the talk all week on TV sports talk.  The shame on Penn State Joe Paterno has allowed.  Too bad this story didn't break 10 years from now when pedophilia will be socially accepted.  The USA has lowered its moral standards to embrace same sex marriage, homosexuality, lesbianism, among other things. 

Apparently the Cornhuskers are just an 'also ran' team this year.  We'll see after the next three games.

Post # 29, Cornhuskers Football, 11-5-2011, loss to Northwestern.

I listen to Nebraska Football talk shows and the game on 94.7 KNEN out of Norfolk, NE.  Yesterday I was helping pick corn, imagine that, I'm a Cornhusker bread and born, I can't get away from it.  I was listening to the game knowing how important it was for our first year in the Big 10.  We lost!

After the game Mat Davidson said there was no reason for us to loose.  We were at home, a big advantage.  We have better talent and more to loose if we lost.  We had more players suited up.  What went wrong?

Their is an unseen X factor in any battle.  The X factor is the Lord.  Not just any 'lord', THEE Lord.  The only God their is, Jesus Christ, the God of the Bible.  Deuteronomy 6 says their is only one God.  Isaiah said His name was, "Wonderful, Counselor,  Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."  Jesus, the Father, and the Holy Spirit aren't 3 Gods, they are One God in three, of His many, persons.  God is a plurality of persona's.

My point is only God can give you the victory.  He decides who wins and who looses.  God could care less about football but He does care about the character and belief system of the coaches, players and the School system involved.  The Chancellor of the University of Nebraska, this week, embraced the politically correct position on same sex marriage by saying he was excited the University was going to provide benefits to same sex couples and embrace the changed and modern view of marriage. Read the article here.

By taking the politically correct position he took the Biblically incorrect position.  Thus, he lost God's favor.  If you turn your back on God, He will turn His back on you.  He does this to spank you.  "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sews, that shall he also reap", Gal. 6:7.  "God is no respecter of persons,"  Acts 10:34.  "The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but victory belongs to the Lord," Prov. 21:31.

If our Chancellor is a Christian, he doesn't know his Bible or he is a coward?  I don't know which.

If he is not a Christian he needs to obey the gospel and become one, so he can get on the right team.  We are to "repent and turn towards God and place our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ," Acts 20:21.  "The Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus,"  2Thess. 1:7-8.   Jesus' team is the right team.  We are the team that never looses in the game of life.  We may loose our lives but we will never loose our life.  We may still loose football games, even if we are right with Him, but we need to live in His favor in things not pertaining to football as well as things that do, whether we win or whether we loose.  "Though He slay me, yet will I praise Him," Job 13:15.

If you don't stand for Biblical correctness on all issues, why would you expect to ever have God's favor on any program at the University of Nebraska?  You would be a fool, a coward or deceived.  Am I right, am I crazy, or am I a liar?  Lord-Lunatic-Liar.
