  • Athletes & Jesus, faith in sports

    OA & I got discussing Teddy, Kurt Warner, Tebow and more. I noticed a disconnect between us and just want to open that discussion here to anyone interested.

    Teddy does mention God and at the beginning of the year I was wondering what may happen with that. My preference from a football standpoint was Lock. I did watch and wonder what God might do. Clearly it was not playoffs. In my experience sometimes there are mountain top experiences like the Kurt Warner story or Tim Tebow and the 3:16 playoff win. But, many times there can be disappointment. Why? I’m not always sure. I do see Teddy’s influence on Lock in a positive way. We don’t have a big enough sample size, but God’s purpose may be in a mentoring type role. In that way he may be the right guy at the right time & place. Maybe for football, maybe just for faith. It’s likely Teddy has talked to other players and had a good influence. Not as flashy as Tebow or Warner, but Im sure he’s had a positive impact.

    I think you’re going to find almost no one cares whom players associate their success/ opportunities, whether that be a god of their understanding, the force, the pagan cycle…..

    I never thought much about Tebow’s faith, seems like decent human being and loved watching him run around like crazy.

    some people do take expection with people who clamor on and on about their god/ beliefs… but that goes the same for people who talk about CrossFit for example..

    live your life, try not to be annoying doing it… that goes for everybody

      Lots of people do care about Kurt Warner’s faith, there is a movie out about it and a book. Tebow is hugely popular and it’s impossible separate his faith from his sports because he won’t let anyone do that.

      Some are a bit more subtle like Teddy or Russell Wilson.

      Aaron Rogers is anti vaxx, some care some don’t.

        Be like the Amish. Not the jehovas witnesses.
