Some may think a strongly worded letter isn't doing much, but considering the hatred he's going to get from within and outside of his team, I'm pleased with this FIRST step.
I believe we will find our faith tested in these end times and each individual must personally decide to be "in this world but not of this world." As men and women of God, we are each called out and must be true to our faith in the face of increasing godlessness. I applaud this brave young man for speaking truth to power. May God continue to bless him for his stance.
Freedom of religion is under attack and I applaud this brave man!
The days are quickly coming when Christians will have to answer this question. Am I a baseball fan or am I a Christian??? The two will be incompatible.
May God bless him. Speaking out in this manner is not easy. But I am afraid that what he needs to do next will be even more difficult, he needs to refuse to play during ANY "pride" event. Actions speak louder than words.
It's very reassuring to know that true Christians aren't trembling in fear and instead are standing firm in their faith.
Kudos to this man for speaking out. I imagine he's willing to lose his career, if it came to that.
But at the rate things are going, it won't be long before Christians aren't just losing jobs, but our heads.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
So Blake is standing tall on the mound for Jesus. He knows God “bats cleanup.”
Shame on Dodger management for this.
I’d like to say I can’t believe this corporate crap & all the rest but after the past 3 years, nothing is unbelievable anymore. Kudos to this young man & I hope other sports figures (& anyone of faith w/ a public platform) will join his stance because he cannot be alone in his feelings about this. Lots of cowards though.
It will be interesting to see what attendance is on that day & the reaction to the show of those who are there. I hope they get their blasphemous twirking asses handed to them on a silver platter. But these days, no telling.
How I appreciate his strong, strong biblical, Christian commitment! Jesus is more important to him than the athletic team(s) for which he plays. I hope this bolsters my own Christian faith.
It's a start but consider this: "You will be hated by all for my name's sake but he who endures to the end will be saved", Matthew 10:22, also see Matthew 24:13 for Jesus' discourse on the tribulation. The anti-gospel of Satan has been allowed to replace the true Gospel of Christ in our time. This is tribulation. Settle which side you are on now b42late.
Thank you for sharing. The men should have resigned to give their Christian statements added meaning. Pure evil is not welcomed. Condoning satanic evil is a pre-mark of the beast acceptance. Christians should quit jobs, boycott evil blm naacp crt wef homo feminist eco terrorist hate groups and their corporate - government chicom puppet masters.
It is way past time to speak out and stand up against this demonic culture. I posit there' is no such thing as 'transgender' or 'trans sexual'. There is a thing correctly identified as transvestite.. It is a manifestation of a serious mental illness medically diagnosed as sexual dysphoria. These children of God who choose to self mutilate need to find help. They need to find Jesus. We need to pray they do. But there can be no more accommodation for this sexual perversion, especially when it is used to indoctrinate children. There is a term that properly identifies adults who attempt sexualize children. That is known as 'pedophile'.
Satan aka Lucifer aka the Prince of Darkness aka the Devil ‘...was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies’, as spoken by Jesus Christ in John 8:44. We were warned by the author of life and truth Himself.
See also: 'Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them', Ephesians 5:11.
Be a bold defender of the faith, a Christian soldier worthy of the name. Now is the time.
Dig deeper folks.
I agree the blasphemy is wrong and despicable, but their involvement with the Folsom Street Fair in S.F. - where they worked the entrance gates and watched parents bringing in young children (a whole other issue) and neither objected or prevented it by warning parents that explicit acts - sex, bdsm and fetish acts - were on full display, means they were happily in on the grooming and perversion, of the children they welcomed in.
We must hold these companies, organization and groups accountable for their willful support or direct grooming and abuse of our children.
A brave soul, it’s so refreshing to see someone speak out and stand up for the truth and what’s right… most are too afraid and will end up following the herd.
I applaud his open and public statement of faith and calling out that hateful group as blasphemous. He didn’t mince words. More need to take a stand. It would be nice if the the baseball stadium is at least half empty to show people will not watch this crap pushed on them.
