Active Faith: Pro Athletes Bring Christian Apparel to the Masses
Posted by Mark J. Miller on March 30, 2012 03:33 PM – There have always been Christian athletes in the ranks of professional sports. Guys would pray together in the end zone or in the locker room. Last year, some pro teams even started to add religion-themed promotional fan days.
The San Francisco Giants, for example, added days had game promotions for Christian, Jewish, and Mormon fans planned, according to USA Today, which didn’t sit well with Muslim fans of the team. Oakland A’s yarmulkes were handed out a Jewish Heritage Night that team held. The rise of new New York Jet Tim Tebow and the New York Knicks’ Jeremy Lin, two very devout Christians (and pals, apparently), has drawn attention to how religion and professional sports mix.

For years, Christian athletes like A.C. Green and Wayne Simien have been sharing their faith in the Lord with the public, proclaiming Christ apart of their lives. Football player, Tim Tebow and basketballer, Jeremy Lin can be added to the list of those apart of the faith.
In encouraging others through their testimony, they can provide a sense of hope to those experiencing difficulties in life. There is nothing wrong with being proud of one’s faith in God. Said faith has taken many through troubles and crisis, serving as comfort in the storm, when problems seem to overwhelm.
