The Philadelphia Eagles: A Band of Bible-Believing Brothers Whose Faith is Inspiring Millions
The 2017 NFL season could easily be summed up in two words: Public Demonstration.
Flip the channel to ESPN this season, and you’re bound to get one of two very different tales.
On one hand, you may have seen headlines and reports of free agent Colin Kaepernick, and his public demonstration of taking a knee—although it may have cost him his career.
And while this NFL season, similar to that of 2016, has been riddled with politics and opinion, there’s one very different public demonstration that has been making waves among the NFL, thanks to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The No. 1 ranked team in the league is now headed to Super Bowl LII, warranting them plenty of airtime on the sports broadcasting network. But greater than their successful wins perhaps is the team’s public demonstration of their faith.
Last fall, Faithit shared the story of Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver, Marcus Johnson, who was baptized by his fellow teammates and coaches in a hotel pool prior to a Thursday night game.
Leading the showcase of Bible-believing brothers is star quarterback Carson Wentz, who has vowed to play for an “Audience of One.” Though a major ACL injury will stop him from playing in Super Bowl 52, nothing can stop him from praising God in the storm and leading his teammates to victory.
Wentz’s proclamation was the catalyst for an impressive faith movement among the thriving NFL team.
More than just a pre-game prayer on the field, Christianity has become “the locker room’s binding force” behind Philadelphia’s cohesiveness both on-and-off the field this season.
In celebration of the team’s faith movement, the Philadelphia Eagles organization released a video on Facebook, giving fans a deeper look at what their favorite players are all about.
The eight-minute testimonial features Carson Wentz along with wide receiver Torrey Smith and safety Chris Maragos, who openly share their individual faith journeys of redemption and hope.
