Outspoken Christian Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, 26, gave high praises to God for helping his team to a scintillating 28-22 overtime victory over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, but his Christian counterpart on the losing team, Aaron Rodgers, doesn't think God had anything to do with it at all.
Responding to listener questions on his weekly radio show on Tuesday, Rodgers said he doesn't think God cares about the outcome of football games during a discussion with ESPN Wisconsin's Jason Wilde.
Reading a question from a listener of the show, Wilde noted: "[The reader] says, 'I always find it a little off-putting when athletes, actors and anybody says, 'This is what God wanted,' or 'I want to thank God for helping us win today,' anything along those lines when a game or award is won. I'm paraphrasing here, but you get the gist. Personally, with all the chaos in the world, I'm not sure God really cares about the outcome of a game or an awards show. What do you think of statements such as these? You've obviously got your faith. Does what happens on Sunday impact your relationship with God or your faith at all?" more >>
