Nice! NFL Star, Nick Foles, Rebukes Prosperity Gospel at Press Conference

While thanking God for his providential injury and allowing him to play football, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback, Nick Voles, rebuked the prosperity gospel.

“…it’s not always about prosperity. I don’t believe in the prosperity gospel. I believe, if you read the Word of God, and you understand it, there’s trials along the way, but they equip your heart to be who you are.”

He had other comments about giving praise to God, but giving him glory in the midst of injury.

He also had said…

“And you know, I still could have joy in an injury. People will hear that and say that’s crazy, but it’s like, when you believe in Jesus and you go out there and you play, that changes your heart. You only understand it when that purpose is in your life. Just like when I hoisted the Lombardi Trophy, the reason I’m smiling is my faith was in Christ, and that moment I realized I didn’t need that trophy to define who I was because I was already in Christ. That’s my message when I play. Same thing when I get injured.”
