Lord Have Mercy Friendship-West Baptist Church Have Been Accused Of Broadcasting The Cowboy's Game During Service!
Reader social media is in an uproar this morning with the news that Dr. Freddy Haynes church in Dallas TX, was literally showing the Cowboys game during services yesterday. The Cowboys entered Week 11 with the best record in the NFL, and understandably, football fans in Dallas are excited. Football is practically a religion to some in Texas, according to someone's tweet, (and an "FW" logo on the wall), Friendship-West Baptist Church in Dallas, had what they considered a fantastic idea to keep the football-loving churchgoers happy, by showing the Cowboys game during services. Anyhow the church has now issued a good reason for the game to on during service:
"Good morning world. It has been brought to our attention that we have received a bunch of negative publicity due to us trying out of the box ministry and meeting people where they are. Yes we showed the Dallas-Cowboys game as a part of our West Wall Street Day where AFTER worship we empowered approximately 40 small black owned businesses. The person who took that video and decided attempt to condemn us to hell did not tell you the entire story. Service was over with and we were transitioning to our after worship event and we decided to put the game on the screen. We did not put the game on the screen to replace anything during our worship service. We take worship very seriously and would not do anything to jeopardize someone's interaction with God. So for all of you sending us to hell and who say this was wrong even though you WEREN'T there, God bless you!! Sadly, you've taken something out of context for your pretext and got conned. Maybe the person who started this untruth wasn't a Dallas Cowboys fan and wanted to start a little controversy. Journalism 101- Ethics... tell the entire story so people can make their own judgments versus the narrative you want them to believe. God Bless you all and we pray that you have a blessed and empowered week. Go Cowboys!"
