I just read an article that stated Figo knelt down to pray for another missing the shot (Beckham). I find it a little funny that someone would go this far to have hope in anothers mistakes. Whatever works I guess.
Far be it from me to knock someone else's faith and if it works for him, that's great. However, I have a hard time that there's a divine being watching over the whole universe yet he's taking time out to worry about a soccer game.
I would not presume to judge another person based on their faith. My faith tells me to live and let live. I think it's amusing that he thought that his higher power would be inclined to affect the outcome of a game. I think he was so involved in the games outcome, that he could not bear to have nothing he could do to defend that kick.
How many times have you wished someone else bad luck or a bad outcome? Be honest !
The fact lads/lasses that you think/feel it necessary to comment on the subject of faith points to the reality truth that God is ready to forgive mankind for their foolishness, by offering His only Son Jesus Christ as a replacement, or no pun intended, a substitute. And it is only through in Him that mankind can truly be saved.
