Default Nick Foles

Nick Foles, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, confesses on TV, that he is a serious, born again Christian. Will he be drummed out of the game, as was was done to Tim Tebow?

Yes he has marked himself
Only because he kneels for the right reasons

History in the making
MAGA
no longer just a political campaign theme/promise.
It is Reality 👍

He will in no way lose out in eternity for standing for Jesus here.
Thank you and bless you Nick Foles.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

Yes...according to fake news..kneel for Almighty God...BAD. Kneel to insult our flag, country and everyone who served and died to preserve both....GOOD.

That seems to be the Lefty view.

If he wins games for whichever team he ends up with, he won't have a problem unless he makes a big deal out of his religious beliefs. Just play the game and be a good guy and you'll do well. Football players are like any other entertainer; the fans want to see them play well and most couldn't care less about their poly ticks, or who they pray to. I'm not saying it will hurt him in any way that he is a Christian, but he should live it and not make it who he is.

I can go with you so far as you covered..but correct me if I am wrong.. Tim Tebow was only found guilty of kneeling in prayer after a spectacular play, right? If that is all, it could easily be ignored as anyone ignores a "fist bump", by anyone else...unless someone is looking to cause trouble.

I'm sure he will be tempted more if there is a public proclamation of faith, I've heard it said the adversary leaves alone those he already has.
I don't think we can say a player who is a Christian is like any other player, we hope his life is a reflection of what Jesus is conforming us all to be, I think each of us here is closer than we were a year or two ago, are we not?
I can see a scenario where a player of Christian faith might allow an interview
for a Christian youth publication, which he probably should do if Christ be exalted through our lives, and a msm source picked it up and projected it as "he or she making a big deal out of it". We are told if we deny Him before man, He will deny us before the Father.
None of us want that to happen, let alone think of how blessing and cursing extends to the 3rd and 4th generation.
best wishes

I saw the interview and thought "good for you."
But as hinted at, he will probably be harassed for his faith.

I didn't see it, but I am sure we have all felt harassment for our faith somewhere.
I am thankful he is aware and I will ask Heavenly Father to bring him to mind for prayer.
best wishes

Foles will be OK. Unlike Tebow, he's a pretty dependable passer.
