Fight Church http://kalw.org en The Word (and Elbows and Knees) of God: Fight Church http://kalw.org/post/word-and-elbows-and-knees-god-fight-church <p>It&rsquo;s hard to imagine two parts of American culture &ndash; mixed martial arts and Christianity &ndash; that on the surface are more incompatible. Jesus is known for telling his followers to turn the other cheek. MMA fighters are known for turning their opponents&rsquo; cheeks for them, with their fists, elbows, and knees. If there&rsquo;s one existential truth it&rsquo;s this: humans, especially American humans, are hideously complex. Yet the existence of ministries that embrace MMA still surprises.</p> Tue, 15 May 2012 22:07:43 +0000 Noah J. Nelson 10675 at http://kalw.org The Word (and Elbows and Knees) of God: Fight Church
