Scott Clark believes watching the NFL on Sunday is breaking the sabbath…and that super Christian QB Tim Tebow should not be playing on the Sabbath either.: “Nevertheless, the specter of (Tim) Tebow standing on the sidelines, holding a clipboard for the next few years until he gets up to speed makes me a little uncomfortable. You see, the Broncos, Tebow’s new employer, play their games on Sunday. For Reformed Christians, according to the Heidelberg Catechism, the Synod of Dort, and the Westminster Assembly that’s the Christian Sabbath…As much as I love football, especially Nebraska Cornhusker football, I’m quite certain that football t is not the “rest” envisioned by Scripture and it is not the means of grace.”
(Note: everyone please see Dr. Clark’s clarification, and my response, in the comments section. Sometimes when you do these things you miss the mark.)
