What was funny about that? I guess I get the point, but to call that a tortured attempt at comedy would be an understatement.

I have a bachelor's degree in Biblical and Theological Studies. I am working on two Masters degrees:One in Religion and the other Divinity with an Emphasis on Church History. I also review books and write articles for different publishers. I am pretty pretty confident I understand the term. I would like to re-affirm my statement and state he needs to choose a better word.I say all this not be mean, but to ascert that the survey is worded poorly. If you would like to check out some things that I have written go to The Reformed Reader - Home

Cheers,

Plus I went to a Christian school and we sang that song a lot in chapel. I think new age worship like that is more about enertainment than true reflection and the school represented that. So its kind of a farce to me in the first place.

I have a feeling if a similar video were done but with rod wilks it would be praised. He's had similar comparisons made of him that were done in jest.

That's the thing about comedy though. You've correctly identified why one video is tortured and one might be funny.

I am going to change my position. I went home and pulled up this thread again and realized that there was a video accompaning it. Initially I just saw the title of the thread and my company firewall blocked the video. I was confused why someone would think the title of the thread was blasphemous. This is the reason I thought that the survey had a poor choice of wording. After realizing what the video was about and what it was advocating, I would have to agree that it was blasphemous but utterly true. There is a new book from a former pastor in Knoxville that just came out called "Crucifom: Living the Cross Shaped Life", where the author talks about his first UT game and how he had never been to such a worship event. The thesis of the chapter is that worship of the true God is very similar to the joy, celebration, community, and ect that takes place regularly at UT sporting events. The problem with UT events is that often the game/team can become an idol and we began to worship Bray or the team, rather than enjoy them for what they truly are. Anyway, I just wanted to recant my position, after I realized that there was a video that was not present when I initially commented.

Cheers

I see Bray highlights, and I hear "Our God is an Awesome God.". I really don't view this as "calling Bray God."

In my view, this video states that God is awesome because he guided Bray to TN, and is giving TN fans something to cheer about.

So did I just say Lane Kiffin is God? ... ... ...

I bet everyone here saying it is blasphemous should look in the mirror and ask yourself if you spend more time reading and thinking about the vols or praising god. Just sayin.
