Picture Jesus Christ v.s. Michael Jordan in a one on one?
Who would win? Well, that's an easy answer depending on who you put more faith in - in terms of athleticism and in sports. Though His Airness is crowned the "God of Basketball", Jesus Christ is the God of all things, including basketball.
As stirred up by Complex Magazine with their article titled "Could Jesus Ball?", this sparks the open floor debate on whether the King of all Kings can shake your ankles with all leather sandals on his feet.
"DOES HE HAVE TO EVEN MOVE? HE CAN JUST STAY IN ONE SPOT AND SHOOT ALL DAY AND NEVER MISS. HE’S PERFECT."
—PASTOR RICH WILKERSON
Here's my top 3 reasons why I believe Jesus Christ was nice with the rock:
In my opinion, Jesus Christ was Black.
There's evident research that prove Jesus Christ was historically an African man, as described by his distinguishing characteristics. And with that being said, who are the nicest athletes in the game predominantly? Black men. Not taking anything away from our White brothers, (as they all mostly have jumpshots that are 100% accurate) but Black men have athleticism, hops and tenacity. This was proven in the early 90's film "White Men Can't Jump".
He knows your every move, before you think it.
So we understand clearly that if Jesus Christ is the 'Alpha' and the 'Omega', he knows what your thinking before you even think it. No need to try to outsmart the man who can beat Bill Belichick to his game on knowing your plays, before it breaks the huddle.
If he can turn water into wine, Gatorade can be made too.
Most athletes love Gatorade. It replenishes what you lose in your sweat by delivering electrolytes and natural sugars to the bloodstream. If Jesus could turn water into wine, we can bet our last dollar he could make Gatorade, thats way better than Gatorade. And I promise you, it would replace more than what you lose playing ball. More like restoring your soul entirely.
