With Super Bowl Sunday just around the corner, this is a must-hear program! As stated on the program, spectator sports are worldly and effeminizing; and sports ministries, like Sports Spectrum, are unbiblical and profane. Thanks for hitting the nail right on the head!

I am happy to know you have the wisdom to adress this subject matter. I for years was a paid powerlifter. This was my only God(Myself)The folly of sports evangelizing is to confuse many.In what appears to be of God(public view)is nothing more than,blinding the hearts and lives of all.

Great program Ralph. This is little more than Roman gladiatorial games a'la Americana. It's a great truth that you talk about what you love the most and depending on the season, most everyone around me loves the television and what's on the television via sports channels. In my home, we don't really watch TV at all, I may listen to the OSU Buckeyes on occasion through the radio but I can turn it off anytime without experiencing any emotional discomfort. Again, GREAT program!

To download a sermon: Right click on Download File, and then choose Save As (Save target as, Save link as, etc.).
Important: SermonAudio tags will appear on some of the messages found on this web site. We are not in any way affiliated with SermonAudio! Please read the following explanation.
Those who listen to archived sermons or Heart of the Matter programs on this web site will notice that, currently, when they download some of those sermons and HOM programs that a SermonAudio logo appears. This is because Pilgrims Covenant Church messages were for a number of years posted at SermonAudio. But due to the increasingly deep compromise of SermonAudio in posting sermons from ministers unfaithful either in doctrine or practice or both, and also on account of the many corrupt conferences advertised on SermonAudio, we withdrew from SermonAudio. However, I did not realize when posting our sermons and programs on that site on a page for which we paid that the management was tagging our MP3 files with the logo of SermonAudio. We are working to remove the SermonAudio logo from all of the sermons and programs posted on this site which were previously posted at SermonAudio. However, this takes much time; so we felt it important to post this explanation and also this warning concerning SermonAudio, a web site with many sound ministers, but also many which are corrupting the Lord's blood-bought church.
