Did you watch the Ray Lewis interview that was aired prior to the Super Bowl? Ray, never one to hesitate speaking about a “god” somewhat related to the Bible, demonstrated his fundamental lack of knowledge about the Biblical gospel. When asked about his role in a double murder over ten years ago he offered this quote:
“If you really knew how God works, he don’t use people who commit anything like that for his glory.”
Has Ray Lewis never read about the Apostle Paul, and how he once persecuted Christians until being redeemed by Christ? Ray laid all his cards on the table with that quote. He has no conception of the Biblical gospel of Jesus Christ dying for sinners, including murderers, but instead is caught up in some false religious form of American Christianity which contains dangerous strands of moralism and a prosperity heresy.
His lack of understanding was further demonstrated during the post-game celebration, where he said something to the effect of “If God is for you, who can be against you,” as if he had firsthand knowledge that it was God Himself who had planned and purposed for the Ravens to win the Super Bowl during Ray Lewis’ last season.
For those who may be inclined to think God was with the Ravens because of the religion of Ray Lewis, I offer the following warning from Moses, for it surely seems applicable to someone who has done great and amazing things on the football field, but who is praising a god that, every time I have heard that god spoken about, has no direct connection to Jesus Christ and His gospel, but only a loose affiliation with hand-picked Bible verses.
