Besides not-collecting-stamps, I spend much of my free time on the soccer field as a referee (I'm also a referee instructor during the winter.) If you've spent any time around sports, I'm sure you've seen some of the crap that gets thrown our way.
Last weekend, I was doing an Over 40 men's game that was verbally abusive almost from the get go. I ended up issuing a couple of yellow (caution) cards and red (ejection) cards when things started getting really out of hand. The game ended up being terminated at half time because of the brouhaha, one team's passes were kept, and the league is looking into the whole thing.
Anyway, mixed in among the 4-letter, 7-letter, and 12-letter epithets hurled was "God will take care of you!". It was not meant as a reassurance. I replied, "I don't believe in God" which totally surprised the player. Later, after he had some time to gather his wits while his teammates continued to lose theirs, he had added something about when I was saved by Jesus.
I've done hundreds of games and have been called some pretty obnoxious things, had my ethics questioned, been reminded that incompetence is not appreciated, and generally been characterized as an ignorant jerk whose badge probably came out of a cereal box.
But I've never been threated with God before. In fact, I don't think it's ever happened elsewhere in my life either.
I'm not talking about the well-meaning pity of "God [ loves / understands / cares ] and that you will eventually [ understand / repent / accept Jesus / etc. ]". But an actual threat of some kind of (unspecified) harm because my actions are so significant that God will notice them and deal with them.
Has anything similar happened to you? [I'm assuming, of course, that we've all been told at sometime that we are going to hell because of our non-belief so that doesn't count]?
