EVERYTHING WILL BE GIVEN!!!

Seen today:

  1. disses my beloved East Coast, but whatever.
  2. a Pew Research Center study showed that only about 17% of Americans attend religious services on a weekly basis; thus, most Colts fans aren’t rushing home from church to watch the game.
  3. if they were rushing home from church where the Gospel of grace was proclaimed, and the free gift of our Lord’s presence was shared, Colts fans would bristle at the false Gospel that EVERYTHING WILL BE EARNED. Instead, they’d clamor that EVERYTHING WILL BE GIVEN!!! Believing with all their heart that EVERYTHING WILL BE GIVEN, these fans would live in the EVERYTHING WILL BE EARNED world with a transforming dissatisfaction seeking to reshape the world according to the promises of God’s capacity to give rather than our capacity to earn.

It’s a t-shirt. But, it’s a little more than that, too.

Peace.

    “Everything will be earned.” Interesting take since the history of the Colts in Indianapolis is an interesting way to “earn” a team. Folks from Baltimore might beg to differ ;).

    Wikipedia as quoted from ESPN has a good line on how I remember it: “After the deal was reached, moving vans from Indianapolis-based Mayflower Transit were dispatched overnight to the team’s Maryland training complex, arriving on the morning of March 29, 1984. Once in Maryland, workers loaded all of the team’s belongings, and by midday the trucks departed for Indianapolis, leaving nothing of the Colts organization that could be seized by Baltimore.”
