“ The Olympics: Ordained To Extinction ”
If the Ancient Olympic Games became extinct in 393 AD, then the modern Olympic Games will also face extinction. The Lord will bring the modern Olympic Games to its extinction just as He did with the ancient Games.

Anonymous Name (2/13/2019)
“ The Olympics: Golden in Greed ”
It is rather troubling on how the Olympics, both Summer and Winter, make a greedy occupation out of recreational athletic activities. The greed of the Olympics is evident in its promotion of sexual lasciviousness as well as immodest attire. The real problem with some of the activities at the Olympics like diving and gymnastics is not that they involve people performing somersaults on the floor, springboard, and trampoline, but that the athletes are wearing immodest attire, namely one piece swimsuits, swim briefs, and leotards. It is also evident in Isaiah 47:1-3 that any display of the bare thighs is a sign of nakedness. Then again, the Olympics, both ancient and modern, have marketed nudity for the sake of greed. This sermon shows why the Olympics is driven by the love of money, which is the root of all evil. Remember 1 Timothy 6:10.

Anonymous Name (2/7/2019)
“ The Olympics: Enjoying The Pleasures of Sin ”
The Olympics, and its many variants, like the World Games, Pan American Games, European Games, African Games, Asian Games, and Pacific Games, are the temporal pleasures of sin lasting for a season. It is wise to remember Hebrews 11:24-26 in a day where the Olympics is widely lauded, even by evangelical churches. The temporal pleasures of sin are not just manifested in the Olympics, but in all pro sports.

Anonymous Name (2/4/2019)
“ Olympic Martial Devil Arts ”
Another thing to note about the Olympics is that the Summer Olympics includes demonic martial arts like judo and taekwondo. Both judo and taekwondo have their roots in devil possession as well as the false religion of Buddhism. As we know, devil possession and the false religion of Buddhism are condemned by The Lord. Remember Isaiah 8:20.

Anonymous Name (7/19/2018)
“ Olympic Medals in Vanity ”
If there is one thing symbolized by Olympic medals and other prestigious accolades in the athletic echelon, they all show empty vanity. This sermon reveals the fact that the Olympics is full of empty vanity.

Anonymous Name (6/11/2018)
“ Olympic Idolatry Examined ”
This sermon examines the idolatrous Olympics, past and present, under the sponsorship of the IOC: International Olympic Committee (more like Idolatrous Olympic Committee) since the ancient and modern Olympics manifest idol worship, especially the worship of Olympic athletes and prizes. No wonder John Calvin prudently warned that the human heart is a factory of idols. That is what John Calvin would say about pro sports, including that of the Olympics.

Anonymous Name (6/7/2018)
“ Olympic Medals in Idolatry ”
Olympic athletes: winning Olympic medals in idolatry since 1896.

Anonymous Name (6/6/2018)
“ Insightful sermon ”
A sermon examining the idolatry of the Olympics. Simply put, the IOC stands for Idolatrous Olympic Committee.

Unspecified name (3/29/2018)
“ The Olympics: Paganism and Greed ”
While the Olympics Public Rebellion against The Lord is mostly manifested in its promotion of paganism, especially during the opening ceremony, the other major sin of the Olympics is that of avarice. If we connect the dots on Olympic greed, we see that the Olympics, namely in its athletes, promote fornication and adultery. The problem with the Olympic events is not being so much talented in an athletic activity best suited only for recreational purposes and exercise, put how Olympic sports is a profession characterized by the sin of greed and adultery. Another way to put this. The Olympic Games, promoting the love of money since 776 BC.
