1 Tim 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

1 Tim 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

1 Tim 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

For if a man can not rule his own house, how can he rule anything much more with the church of god.
1 Tim 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Tim 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
It is unchristian to say that you love your Children but divorced their mother.
1 John 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

Manny Pacquiao vs Ricky Hatton

The much anticipated boxing match between Pacquiao vs Hatton is now in the final stage or is now close to finalizing a deal to meet in a 140-pound (63.5-kilogram) bout on May 2, 2009 9PM ET/6PM PT at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.’

Some details about the 2 fighters:

Manny Pacquiao (48-3-2, 36 KOs), who holds a lightweight belt, jumped up two weight divisions to meet De La Hoya, but will drop down one division to challenge Hatton, who defended his title with an 11th-round TKO of Paulie Malignaggi on Nov. 22, also at the MGM.

Ricky Hatton (45-1, 32 KOs), the junior welterweight world champion, would defend his 140-pound title against Pacquiao, the pound-for-pound king who on Dec. 6 dominated Oscar De La Hoya en route to an eighth-round TKO in a welterweight fight at the MGM Grand.

Enough of their details, let's talk biblical matters.

Boxers used the sign of the cross before and after their boxing bout. For what? That no harm shall happen to them during the fight?
For Protection against evil ? or Praying, may be, that they should win the fight. Does this mean, they are (Christians) followers of Christ ?

Boxing is one profession that a Christian should not join.

1 Peter 3:9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

Luke 6:35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.

Matthew 5:39 But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.

Meaning, if you let your opponent strikes your left and right cheek, no Christians can win any boxing bout anywhere.

Boxers thank their god for winning the boxing match, but, Is the God whom we fear and obey also pleased with their victory?


  1. Interesting, however, boxing is a sport, I have never known it to be considered as evil. What about soccer, football, and other sports? Have studied the bible for years, since I was a child. But never knew that these sort of sports were evil. Interesting. TY

  2. still not mentioning the gamblers who profited from the fight and the boxers who died in the process. Thanks for your comment.

  3. To intentionally make a cut on your flesh is a sin against God.

    Leviticus 19:28 You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the LORD.

    Thanks again for the comment.
