As a church, we want to resist the politicization of all things.
ESPN is actually saying that it is not trying to engage politics and culture in a general sense, they are embracing a viewpoint that skews left. We cannot miss that ESPN believes that political engagement can only run in one direction on its network. We cannot miss that a large part of the viewing public is not connecting with their political shift. As a church, we want to resist the politicization of all things. We are glad to enjoy God’s common grace gifts but we want the pulpit to be the pulpit and the gospel to be the gospel. We want to enjoy the good things of this world without coming to needless division.
