How much influence does he have?

I know enough about God to know that He wouldn't care about something as petty as a football team winning a game.

Wait, why is that petty? I'm sure it's important to them, the players, wanting to win a game they have worked hard at winning. If a sports team full of individuals, god's children, is too petty, what qualifies for a heavenly intervention? It's certainly not a mother praying over a child dying of cancer. I lost my keys. Do you think if I said a prayer god might guide me to where they're hiding?

So, you don't like art and you don't like sports. You're really living it up over there, yeah?

You know fuck all. It was a smart assed remark and you are too stupid to know it.

I thought agency was important to Christians, so, I'm assuming it's a prompting and not just outright possession.

Perhaps he uses messengers, like in this show.  But if he uses adults instead of kids, they die.

You can’t possibly know that. Particular teams winning particular games may be God’s chief concern.

 Think about it - in every American football game ever played, one team or the other always wins. The odds of that happening by random chance are too infinitesimal to bear thinking about.

Tie games were quite common in the NFL until 1974 when the NFL first introduced overtime rules for the regular season. There are still occasional games that remain tied, despite the extra quarter, starting with the very first regular season overtime game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos which resulted in a 35-35 tie.

Obviously gawd cares so much about who wins these games that he moved the rules committee to change a core rule of the game. Razz

Dafuq?!? Your gawd cares about all kinds of petty shit. Wearing mixed fabrics, consumption of pigs or shellfish, whether you can boil a kid in it's mother's milk, what pink bits people who love each other have, etc... Obviously, who won the game yesterday is just as important as any of those.

You worship a small minded and petty gawd. Why wouldn't it care about petty shit?!?

And yet newspapers are filled with athletes crediting God for the victory

So are they all just delusional?
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

I think most athletes are just catering to their viewers, for continued support.
