Can a Lakers fan be saved?

Whatever your condition in life, you can still be a Christian. Whether Jew, Gentile, married, single, slave, or free — even a Lakers fan. We don’t have to become something different than what we are in order to follow Jesus. That is good news.

In whatever situation someone was called, brothers and sisters, let him remain in it with God.
1 Corinthians 7:24 NET

Some Jews wanted to force Gentiles to become like themselves. Paul refused to give in. Must one be married, or remain single? It doesn’t matter, says the apostle, and it depends on the situation.

What isn’t in view here is repentance from sin. The convert to Christ must repent and leave off adultery, greed, lying, and any other sin in which he is involved. This change must be made.

But, besides repentance, we can continue our normal life, for God has called us to take his truth with us in the midst of where we live. Even to Lakers fans.

  1. Those of us in Buckeye nation have to take heart, with our recent troubles, that we, too, can be saved. Not many in the Sports world are wanting to “save” us!
