    What is the definition for basketball? A game with a ball and two hoops with two teams, one defending the hoop, the other trying to get the ball into the basket.


    Basketball, one of America's favorite sports. Have you ever thought about how much similar a games of basketball is to God's battle with Satan. OK, say the home team is God and the visitor is Satan. The Angels vs. the Demons. God and Satan are coaching. Well God's trying to win you by helping you out and every time he does or you do something in his name or for him the ball goes in and he gains a few points. Satan's demons are on defense trying to stop the ball and get it back. On the other side of the court the angels are on defense trying to protect you. Satan is trying to win you over with drugs, drinking, and any other thing to keep you from God. Every time he wins, he scores more points. The good team is usually the home team and their are plenty of people rooting. You are like the score keeper or the referee. You decide the points in the end so chose who you want to win and stick by them. Satan can't win if you side with God.
