God Is Obviously a Brown’s Fan

Well, the Super Bowl is over and (sadly) football is finished until August. However, this past season NFL season has once again re-confirmed my firm conviction that God is in fact a diehard Cleveland Brown’s fan like I am. “How could a chronically miserable squad like the Browns be God’s chosen team?” you might ask. Wouldn’t it make more sense that a championship team like the Steelers would be God’s team of choice? Consider the following Bible passages:

JOB 5:11 The lowly he [God] sets on high

MT 20:16a “So the last will be first.”

PS 123:4 We have endured much ridicule from the proud,   much contempt from the arrogant.

EZ 21:26 The lowly will be exalted and the exalted will be brought low.

Doesn’t that perfectly describe the Browns – lowly, ridiculed & last? Yet, in the end, God will exalt them, set them on high, and put them in first place.

Now consider the fate of the proud, victorious Steelers. This is how the Bible describes their kind:

IS 13:11 I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will  humble the pride of the ruthless.

JAS 4:6 “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

2SA 22:28 You save the humble, but your eyes are on the haughty to bring them low.

MT 20:16b “…the first will be last.”

Ultimately, the proud & arrogant Steelers will be humbled and brought low. God will rip their championships from them and put them in last place permanently.

So Steelers fans ought to savor their fleeting victory as we all await the eternal exaltation of the lowly, ridiculed Browns – God’s chosen team!

I obviously write all this in jest (well, kind of), but Christians would do well to remember that even though we may feel like our lives are sometimes filled with nothing but failure & set backs, while many of the arrogant, ruthless & godless around us seem to be succeeding in everything they do – God will ultimately set things right. He has given us his promises. We just need to trust him.

  1. Steelers!!! And Browns arn’t last the Poor lil Lions are. LOL your funny.

  2. Obviously, you haven’t kept up with the NFL. Only 1 team holds the record of 0-16 in the history of professional football and that is the lowly Detriot Lions(formerly the Portsmouth Spartans. Ironic huh?). There were also 4 other teams beneath the Browns in the League standings: Seahawks, Chiefs, Rams, and once again the Lions. So that would make the Browns a “lukewarm” team. To quote Revelation 3:16 “So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.” Thus saith the Lord. So even though the Browns seem very lowly and are obviously more cold than hot, they are still in the midst of the AYO’s (All You Others). So if you are correct with the scripture quotes, God loves the Lions not the Browns. Sorry Eron.

    • The Lions? I was referring only to PROFESSIONAL teams (some franchises are simply beyond all redemption). Long-term that still leaves the Browns as the most likely candidate to be God’s Chosen Team!
