NFL star and controversial civil rights figure Colin Kaepernick may be well-known for his sole leadership of the 'Take a Knee' protest, but he has also been joined by committed Christian and NFL player Eric Reid, who is seeking to highlight the need for believers to start acting on their faith.
”We all have a love for people. The Bible tells us love your brother as yourself so that’s why we’re doing it. We have to speak up for those who can’t do it for themselves," Reid said recently. "My faith is ultimately what led me to start protesting and it’s what continues to drive me. Faith without works is dead. I feel like the past year before we started protesting, the Lord has prepped me for this moment.”
“I do see some hypocrisy with the people that call themselves Christians,” the 49ers safety-turned-linebacker continued. ”If you know Jesus, he went into the house of God and turned over the tables and was angry and said they made the house of God into a marketplace so I would say this is something that He would do.”
