According to The Christian Post, he sent out a message to his 115,000 followers saying, “Jesus Is the light of the world whoever follows Him will never be in darkness.” The tweet so far has over 700 likes and over 100 retweets. Days later he posted the statement, “Follow in [Christ’s] steps,” as well as, “Build yourself up in holy faith.” On his Twitter profile, Cooks included the Bible verse Psalm 144:6.
The Rams are currently the only team in the NFL that is undefeated this season. A survey done by, Ryan P. Burge of Eastern Illinois University shows that NFL players were second of all professional athletes to post Bible verses on their profiles. We also can’t forget when the Eagles won the Super Bowl head coach Doug Pederson said, “I can only give the praise to my Lord and savior Jesus Christ for giving me this opportunity. And I’m going to tell you something. I’ve got the best players in the world, and it’s a resilient group.”
