"His accomplishments and triumphs have inspired football fans, teammates and colleagues – a true representation of what the essence of the convergence of faith and football is all about. As a big supporter of the event, Ray Lewis has attended many Super Bowl Gospel Celebrations and sang in the NFL Players Choir, so we are beyond thrilled to honor him in what is sure to be a memorable year.”

Men like Ray Lewis give the best testimonies. You never know how God used his past to bless his future. A man that committed a murder became one of Jesus' Apostles and wrote most of the New Testament. Don't block your blessings by refusing to see God's forgiveness in others.

Ray Lewis didn't "barely" get off on murder charges. He was allowed to plea on an obstruction charge, that's not "barely" getting off on a murder charge. He testified against the two people that were charged with murder and they both were acquitted. Those are the facts.

They never found his bloody white suit that he took off, changed clothes. He was very lucky. I'm more upset about all the kids and "baby mama's". I'm glad he's doing well now. But we let people off the hook to easily when they mention "God". Amazingly, everyone on death row manages to find God too when it's CONVENIENT............
