What would Jesus's opinion be on MMA?

Would he say its an acceptable way to make a living?

Christian ethics are pretty intent driven. Im not convinced that he would consider a sport in which people can get hurt but participate for fun to be an innately immoral thing

I don't think he'd consider it "unacceptable" or immoral, per se, but he might wonder why they couldn't find a better use for their time.

Also, at the risk of aging myself, my first take from the topic title was MMA = Marked Message Accuracy. Oh lol.

Killing =/= bodily harm.

"Thou shalt not murder" doesn't exactly equate to "Thou shalt not laith a smackdown on thine adversaries."

So, pretty much...

Fear leads to anger
Anger leads to hate
Hate leads to suffering

Therefore eating a Twinkie is akin to stabbing someone in the eye.
