"I do like that story but ending up in prison is pretty common for God's prophets.  Unfortunately for some like John the Baptist it doesn't end there."

"Couple things about that story in Kings: Differing political loyalties divide the two prophets involved. They are not apolitical; they are fully human beings with a strong disagreement between them. The prophet who tells his opponent that (contrary…"

"Jay: Knowing the prophet and his history helps.  The problem is the gift or call can rest on anyone.  The Old Testament Prophets, even Jesus himself, were not pleasing to the natural eye.  They were not big on dressing in the latest…"

It's about my experiences as a sporting official and what I've learned from them.  Before you figure that sport and competition aren't part of your life, check out these passages:
