I (Sal) remember watching "pro-wrestling" growing up with my family as a young kid. It was total entertainment! My brother and I would pretend to be certain Pro-Wrestlers and fight with each other in our living room floor. I even would try to jump from my stairs' railing and pretend that would be the 3rd level "buckle"-just like the "pros". Over the years, the interest went down as I began to find others. However, I'll never forget buying those wrestling figures, like Hulk Hogan and Brutus "the Beefcake" and show them to my friends. One of my friends had the WWF Wrestling Ring, where would play our figures and wrestle one anohter. I even got Pro-Wrestling Cards, which I happen to have our very own former Minnesota Governor-Jessie "the body" Ventura!
As I came to a personal relationship with Jesus (first year in college), I got more interested in just some of the "pros" when I found out who were the "outspoken" Christians. The first one I heard of was Ted Dibase-a.k.a. "The Million Dollar Man" (fan story)!
Then recently, I was watching the Benny-Hinn program in TBN and he had Tommy "Tiny" Lister, who is well-known in the entertainment industry (both Pro-Wrestling and Hollywood films). That is why I decided to write this today-Thursday, January 8th of 2004. I want to encourage Sports fans today that there are some "positive" role-models today in the sports entertainment industry. Yes, no one is perfect, but at least they "try" through their relationship with God!
Q: Did you know they have wrestling in the Bible?
A: Look up Genesis 32:22-32 on Jacob v.s. "man"
Why Does God Wrestle with His Children?
"A short discussion about when God confronts us with trials and adversity. It focuses on what God is doing for his child when He contests them."
