Many NFL fans have given up on Football since the games have become so political.
But all of that may change after this football player’s statement.
This big name quarterback said something so incredible to the media before a football game that is blowing every Christian away.
Kirk Cousins, the quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings, recently defeated the New Orleans Saints in a game that no one expected the Vikings to win.
But before Cousins started playing the game, he told a reporter something that is rocking the Christian world.
A reporter asked how he felt about his chances, which is when Cousins replied, “Win or lose today, God’s still on the throne. And, I take comfort in that.”
The Minnesota Vikings then proceeded to win in a big upset game and Christians have flocked to Kirk Cousins by showing him support on social media.
Even Franklin Graham posted on social media applauding the athlete for giving glory to God.
CNS News reports:
After leading the Minnesota Vikings to a 26-20 overtime win over the New Orleans Saints in the first round of the NFL playoffs on Sunday, Quarterback Kirk Cousins said that he draws peace and strength from his faith – and, not from winning football games.
In a post-game interview, Cousins was asked how he has handled being publicly criticized for his past performance on the field.
Cousins responded that, with faith as the foundation of his life, he can always take comfort in the knowledge that “God’s still on the throne” – no matter what comes his way in life:
“You know, ultimately, it’s about team. And, I’m just trying to do my part for this team, help us win. And, you know, a quarterback carries weight – it comes with the job…
“Win or lose today, God’s still on the throne. And, I take comfort in that.”
The media has given Cousins very little attention regarding his statement and even his victory.
When an NFL player takes a knee during the National Anthem or Collin Kaepernick posts something on Facebook, the media makes it a breaking news story.
The media has a distinct pattern of either ignoring or sabotaging outspoken Christians in sports.
When Tim Tebow publicly professed his faith playing for the Denver Broncos, they ruthlessly attacked him.
After dealing with the backlash, they’ve likely decided it is best to simply ignore these Christian athletes.
What do you think?
Does the media despise Christian athletes?
