How can I have pure fun and still live a true repentant and a victorious Christian life?
For example, I am trying to read the Holy Bible everyday and apply it to my life and I read the 12th hour everyday and really pray for everyone; yet sometimes I feel bored. Can I continue to play sports for example?
His Grace Bishop Youssef:
Praying, reading the Holy Bible, and knowing about the saints are all very important elements required for spiritual growth and attainment. All of these attributes are not against having fun. Actually, it is by complying with these guidelines, that you can enjoy fun events and social gatherings in a more fulfilling way. Sports are fun, whether you are a spectator or a participant. Nonetheless, you should be aware of the shortcomings of watching sports, e.g., during the half-time shows for football, inappropriate commercials, profanities, etc are shown. Therefore, diligently plan to avoid any portion that is unsuitable.
