NFL Player Gives Up Football for Jesus

NFL third round pick, Glenn Coffee has retired after just one year of playing professional football because of his faith.

My initial thought were of sadness for him and his family that, because of a delusion, he's turned his back on a financially secure career that would have been a good foundation for his life. However, thinking about it, maybe from a purely money perspective, he's doing the right thing. He signed a four year contract for $828,000. Now that's not chump change, it's only for four years and an equally talented individual, say a Wall street wizz would be getting that for a life time. In leaving the NFL and turning to a life of spreading the virus... I mean "message" of Jebuz, Coffee will be able to milk his story for the rest of his life.

The only difference of course is that a sports star earns his money by entertaining people. A preacher earns his money by lying to people.


  1. Hey doug I don't know you personaly, but sounds that your god is money, and when someone else might do or think other than money is typical for some or you to criticize them for not following the rest faithless or maybe it is that some don't know or they read this garbage and think that other than money is the norm. god help you doug.

  2. Amen Brother!.. How sad... The Hopeless wanting to Proclaim NO HOPE...Misery loves company I guess. If money is your God... then try to pay your debt when you leave this world. Trust me... you will never have enough.

  3. 1 corinthians 1-18 for the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing,but to us who are being saved it it the power of GOD.for it is written ; i will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the purdent.

  4. It's inspiring to see someone sacrificing for the Lord. Mathew 16:24 "take up your cross and follow me".
