4 things golfers and Jesus Christ have in common

by Doug Lawrence

There’s little doubt that Jesus Christ is the inventor and history’s most prominent advocate of the “do-over” … otherwise known as a “Mulligan”:

Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things [are] of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.   (2 Corinthians 5:17-19)

Jesus is also history’s greatest “handicapper”:

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth; And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:5-11)

And of course, Jesus is the one who is responsible for the natural beauty of the golf course, as well as the physical laws which govern everything about the game:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (John 1:1-3)

Looking ahead, we see that Jesus also appreciates awards ceremonies … and that he alone will be the “Master” of the biggest awards ceremony in history:

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things [done] in [his] body, according to that he hath done, whether [it be] good or bad. (2 Corinthians 5:10)

(The above verse makes even the “Green Jacket” awarded at “The Masters” seem relatively insignificant …)

Poll: Notre Dame Erred By Inviting Obama

By MICHAEL P. TREMOGLIE, The Bulletin
Thursday, May 07, 2009

A recent Rasmussen poll found 52 percent of Americans believe the University of Notre Dame should have followed guidelines set by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and not award an honorary degree to President Barack Obama because he has acted in opposition to the Catholic Church’s moral principles.

The national telephone survey found that 25 percent believe the university should issue the degree and 19 percent are not sure.

The guidelines set by the bishops in 2004 said, “The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions.”
