“Soccer belongs to the devil” claims pastor

For many, sports such as soccer, baseball or basketball are healthy sports in which no malice is hidden. Even since ancient times sport has always existed, the apostle Paul himself spoke several times of those who “run a race.”

But there are those who have the idea that sports like these are of the devil and that the Bible forbids them, and this is the case of a Dominican pastor named Santiago, who quoted James 4:4 to say that soccer is of the devil:

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

He also said that Satan is the one who sponsors baseball and that there are Christians who don’t know how to defend the Bible, but they do know how to defend their baseball team and in the same way, they know more about this sport than about the Bible itself.

The pastor’s statements continued to say:

I don’t know how there are Christians who watch baseball games. Baseball games are of the Devil, Satan and demons.
