Just Because You Can, Doesn’t Mean You Should

I’ve been caught up in the controversy swirling around Tony Dungy, an outspoken Christian/ex-football coach, and Rex Ryan, the current head football coach of the New York Jets.

It originated with Ryan’s profuse profanity use on an HBO program.  Dungy was asked if he would hire a coach who used profanity.  To which Dungy responded, “Probably not.”

With ESPN in their desperation for drama, this is all they needed to fuel the controversy.  And so in their endless channel outlets and programs they’ve been debating as they usually do and creating as they obviously need to do, the controversy over whether or not you should curse.

Of course those who advocate it say, “this is who I am and I have freedom.” The first part is a little sad.  The second part I certainly would defend.

This highlights a point, particularly if you put yourself in a place of responsibility, which is most of us.  There are certain things that you are free to do because you represent an idea, a cause, a mission, a family, a religion, or a company.  You should be mature enough to restrain your freedom so you can represent those around you well.

This is an old Christian debate between can you drink beer or not, wine or not, go to movies or not, on and on the list goes.  The truth of the matter is, Christianity is not about morality.  Let me say that one more time.  It is not about morality, never has been about morality, and when we argue morality we lose.

Let’s face it.  Statistics prove that Christians live day to day with no significant difference morally than others who claim other faiths or no faith.  As a matter of fact, there are world religions that will go nameless that produce a much higher standard of morality than Christianity does.

Why is this? I’ll tell you in the next blog.
