Can those replacement refs teach us something? For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet.
Last week’s Monday Night Football game saw the Seattle Seahawks barely defeat the Green Bay Packers in what is the most famous of a series of bizarre calls from the now infamous “replacement refs.” The anger from fans, players, and coaches towards these guys, who are stepping in for the regular referees who are on strike, is palpable.
The problem, according to Larry Taunton of the Fixed Point Foundation, is these refs seem not to know the rules, and the ones they know they inconsistently enforce. Remember, Taunton says, that’s actually how a lot of the world lives day in and day out. Many nations around the world are not ordered by the rule of law. And their leaders often govern like “replacement refs” officiate.
In his excellent book Discipling Nations, Darrow Miller shows how worldview, not resources, most often determines a nation’s success. Miller is my guest this weekend on BreakPoint this Week. I hope you will listen. For thePointRadio.org, I’m John Stonestreet.
