Bob, No. I'm not married to J Lo. LOL If I were, I'm not sure she would let me hunt!

Anyway, like Culfcapt said, I think it was in the July issue. It was referring to false gods and how we can elevate something, whether it be a sport or pastime, to the point of treating it like a false god. In other words, replacing God himself for something of secular value. It was a great article and a real eye opener for some of us hunting freaks! Rev. Zeke titled that article wisely as it caught the eyes of many!

Rev. Zeke, WOW!!! I think you could have found a million different titles for your article! Was that just to sell copies? I did not read your article but I do have an issue with your title. I myself am a "Doubting Thomas" for my own myriad reasons. But, if you are a Reverend, you are held to a higher standard. I also believe your "Title" should have been edited by any God fearing administrator. I have read the reviews and they are positive about this and your other articles, but, "Come on Man"

God is a title or adjective.

I haven't read the article but I am sure he is referring to hunting being a horrible 'god' or 'idol' to worship if you let it get to that point. Which most people do.

It has to do with a frame of reference, whatever your life is 'centered' on is 'your god', family, money, pleasures, self, God, are a few common ones...

I've said what he said for years, not the god stuff, but the elevating of deer hunting to something too important. He's just got a much better way with words.
