Boxing and the Lord.
It begs disbelief that a magazine such as Premier Christianity can believe that boxers believe the Lord helps them win.
I've heard BS many times, and this just about takes the cake - all boxers need is a violent temper, and a disregard for their opponent to win, what is Christian about wanting to inflict pain on a person to the extent they'll probably end up in hospital.
The latest news is a boxer "claims" to have felt the hand of God raise him after he was almost knocked out. Please, it was more likely either the need to fight to earn his wage, or his promoter's hand helping the thug because a boxer who is knocked out in the 5th round of a 12 round bout is NOT a wage earner, and the world can only sustain so many ex-boxers as bouncers.
I keep trying to find a reason to resubscribe as when the magazine deals with Christianity it can be excellent to read, but for most of the time it has a tendency toward gossip about TV programmes; I can see the reason as this attracts younger readers, but for older people seeking a religious magazine it is a turn-off.
I dread to think which celebrity they will feature next month. The way it is heading it could well be Dec from Ant & Dec as they did post a Twitter feed about what would the Lord do if he was on I'm a Celebrity.
Declan couldn't get away from the publicity, they are back with another revision of the I'm a celebrity series :(
The article could be called "How I found Jesus at the bottom of the bottle," as he was on drink driving charges in October, claiming his fame on TV had got to him - if that's the case, leave TV, others had and got forgotten before you - such as Susan Stranks of the children's TV show Magpie.
