As long as it doesn't ruin relationships with friends and family, then I see nothing wrong with it.

Competition is fine, of course we shouldn't be killing each other. But there's nothing wrong with some healthy competition. It drives us to do better. I know a lot of good people who are competitive. I'm naturally pretty passionate about sport too.

@isaiahtheprophet, if you know something we don't, and you feel that God doesn't want us to be doing competition, you shouldn't be ashamed to tell us. Even if it does lose you friends. Try and present it in a Christ-like way, and... ya! just say it. i don't think anyone on here is gonna get mad at you...

Well, I'm sure that it can't be that bad. And remember, Jesus was unpopular because he told the truth. Keep in mind that what is popular is not always right, and what is right is not always popular.

okay, two more comments and you have to answer. and thejaguar is right. Jesus was treated terribly because of the truth (and rubuke) that he preach. so I think you should count it as a high honor to be treated how Jesus was. :)



NO PLEASE TELL US!! :S sorry, caps

Don't worry about us being mean to you, we just want to know- even if we disagree we'll still all be friends.

hmm I'm really curious to hear what you have to say about this, but the link does not work... anyway...

I looked up the verses you listed and put them here for easier reference...
the verses you said earlier are: Philippians 2:1-3(I'm guessing you mean KJV) "If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves." and Galations 5:20 (I used KJV again, and included verses 19 and 21 for a bit more context...) "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; ... Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies ... and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."

the next thing i looked up was the dictionary definition of strife (because I have no knowledge whatsoever of greek)"1. vigorous or bitter conflict, discord, or antagonism: to be at strife. 2. a quarrel, struggle, or clash: armed strife. 3. competition or rivalry: the strife of the marketplace." (quoted from Dictionary.com)

First of all I want to say that I am not trying to start a fight, and I am not mad, this is just my opinion and my thoughts on this matter. (sorry the post is super long... The underlined parts pretty much sum up the whole post, so you can skip the rest of my rambling if you want...)

Okay, after looking up the verses and the dictionary definition, yes strife is bad, and one of the definitions of strife is competition. In my opinion, strife is a bit of a strong word to use for the kind of competition that goes on between sports teams and especially people just getting together to play a sport or game or something. I am not a competitive person by nature, so maybe I am underestimating the feelings of athletes or something, but I don't think competition in that manner is nearly as bad as you are saying... I think it IS wrong to want to win at all costs, whether that means cheating, hurting someone, or even just putting the other team down with your words and actions. But I think a bit of friendly competition is good, if you don't want to win, and don't try to win, are you really going to be trying very hard? and if you don't try, why even play the sport? I think sports should be used as a way to have fun, and get in shape, and just burn off a bit of extra energy, but if you don't even care to win, I don't think you have as much fun as if you at least try a bit.

When we have a Bible Trivia activity, the objective is to learn more about the Bible. Sometimes it helps to challenge ourselves and each other to do better. That is why I keep giving the reminder that it is just a game. If we have a pleasant time together and learn something about Jesus, we are all winners. If we get hung up on competing for the highest score or outdoing another player, we are losing out on what is really important. Jesus encourages us to do our best --- and helps us improve. We want to do that for each other too. Does your competition help? If so, good. If not, maybe you have the wrong focus.

Not to be mean or anything, but where are you getting your sources? There is no one Greek god named Titan. According to the myth, the Titans were a group of gods with superior strength who were rulers over all other gods. Zeus and his brothers (Greek mythology is tritheistic) overthrew the Titans, and gambled to see who would rule where. Zeus won the earth, Poseidon won the seas, and Hades won, well, Hades.

The god of war (that's what I think you mean by violence) was names Ares
The god of strength was named Kratos.
The actual Greek god of jealousy was Phthonus.
