The Olympics in the Bible
Olympic Biblical Metaphors
Q: London and Rio Olympic Games: I was wondering if the ancient Olympics are mentioned in the Bible?
A: Yes, the Games of ancient Greece are alluded to many times, especially in Paul’s Epistles.
The games are not endorsed by scripture, because they were, and still are, utterly Pagan, and devoted to demons.
The Holy Spirit simply uses competitive athletic metaphors to encourage believers to be wholehearted and single-minded for Christ.
