Jonathan Isaac: “The best solution is the Gospel of Jesus Christ”
Jonathan Isaac, number 11 on the Orlando Magic basketball team, made headlines when he decided not to take a knee and to stand during the national anthem. He also choose not to wear a ‘Black Lives Matter’ t-shirt as the rest of his team did. Reactions since then have been swift and varied. Jonathan share’s how his faith influenced his decisions.
“I am about solutions. When I saw people taking the decision to kneel, I thought the best decision and the best solution is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, because that is how my life has been supported. That is how I have seen countless lives be changed, supported, changed for the better, when it comes to situations like racism. Realizing and understanding we are all made in the image of God is the answer. That is the solution I went with.”
