I've always wondered just how one goes about saying "Thank you, God, for granting me the strength and power to beat down another one of Thy children."

As an atheist who regularly beats Christians up in competition, I have to say that I haven't noticed a difference between the religions. Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Taoist, even other atheists, at some point we're all just fighters.

I understand that people want to represent their faith when they step out there, but it seems ridiculous to me.

When I step into the ring or the cage, or even when I just step on the mat to train or teach, I am only representing myself. I am only trying to display the amount of work I have put into training my body and my mind to function at the highest possible level.

God didn't show me how to lock in an armbar.

God didn't show me how to knock a guy out with a spinning back kick.

God didn't show me how to slam a guy until he can't remember his name.

The fact is, when I step on the mat, if I'm going to represent anyone, I'm going to represent my team and my coaches, but, first and foremost, myself.

Don't give God credit for the work you put in. Give it to yourself, you f*cking earned it.

Nope, it doesn't happen. You know why?

Because while they're praying, I'm on the mat working my ass of.

I respond to this the same way I respond to people that say MMA is like dogfighting... it's a sport. In the same way that you punch people in boxing and hit people as hard as you can in football... the physical pain/contact is part of the sport.

Probably not. However, part of the belief of being a Christian is that an active believer is to obey the command to spread the Word. So, if it in any way influences one person... then I suppose God does care.

How did I know both you and Biowza would be posting in here... hahaha

As a believer, I believe that the ability & desire to put in the effort is something that God instills in me. I understand the idea that you have to represent yourself, and as a Christian.. my religion is part of myself... so if I were to represent my faith in any way I would be representing myself. I don't understand why people find it so offensive that someone would wish to make a statement about what they believe. It's not like they're forcing anyone else to have the same belief.
