Benjamin Watson is an NFL TE for the Baltimore Ravens and author of the book Under Our Skin. He was recently on The Kelly File to discuss his thoughts on the racial tensions between police officers and African Americans. The recent deaths of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa and Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte have led to heavy news coverage on the shootings. Riots have erupted here in our hometown of Charlotte. This has resulted in Governor Pat McCrory declaring a State of Emergency and the arrival of the National Guard to help maintain control after nights of rioting and looting in Uptown.
Benjamin Watson can relate with being racially profiled. However, he does not condone the violence and looting that has taken place in Charlotte. Instead, Benjamin Watson offers the only true solution, when he states:
“Obama can’t save us. Mrs. Clinton can’t save us. Mr. Trump can’t save us. The only one who can change the heart of man is the Lord.”
The Bible tells us in Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately sick…” Everyone is a sinner and has wickedness in their hearts.
However, God is the only one, who can truly change our hearts and save us from our sins. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”!
If we trust Christ as our Lord and Savior, we can truly see and experience exactly what Benjamin Watson is speaking about,
“…the only one who can change the heart of man is the Lord.”
Do you want to experience this change in your heart and accept Christ as your Lord and Savior? You can do this today, right where you are sitting!
