Tiger Woods’ Bogey   1 comment

I really don’t have too much of intelligence or worth to add to the new scandal surrounding Tiger Woods and his adulterous relationship with some diner waitress. Actually, just one thought… it’s not about being satisfied once you have the most beautiful woman out there. I think Tiger’s wife is a Swedish super model (categorically, they don’t really get hotter than that). But, he still wasn’t satisfied. Here are just two things to consider, and I won’t add any commentary to them.

First, from Proverbs 5:1-4, written by the wisest man in the face of the earth, Solomon:

My son, give attention to my wisdom, incline your ears to my understanding; that you may observe discretion and your lips may reserve knowledge. For the lips of an adulteress drip honey and smoother than oil is her speech; but in the end she is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.

Second, some thoughts from C.J. Mahaney, the President of Sovereign Grace Ministries (here’s the original post):

Tiger cannot intimidate this enemy like he can Pebble Beach or any of the field of professional golfers. And there is no privacy he can claim from this enemy, regardless of his resolve, his silence, or the name painted on his yacht. It’s likely Tiger only perceives the press hunting him out of a vain “curiosity about public figures.” But Tiger is being hunted and hounded by a far greater foe: the consequences of his sin.

And this story should humble and sober us. It should make us ask: Are there any so-called “secret sins” in my life? Is there anything I have done that I hope nobody discovers? Is there anything right now in my life that I should confess to God and the appropriate individuals?

And this should leave us more amazed by grace because there, but for the grace of God, go I.

  1. Have you seen that Mahaney did that was “found out?” This inclludes Mahaney blackmailing Larry Tomczak and hiding that sin for over 10 years. Also it was revealed that a lot of what Mahaney taught he didn’t practice himself.

    Sad Mahaney could be throwing stones when he lived in a glass house himself
