God bless Bubba Watson. He is a the new ‘Masters Champion’ and one of the best Golfers in the world — but more importantly he is an unabashed unashamed born-again CHRISTIAN. I wish more Christians were like Bubba.
Christians come out of the closet! Stand up for Jesus. End Christophobia. Legalize Jesus.
During televised MASTERS award ceremony / acceptance speech something bizarre happened. The second he began to praise and honor JESUS – the screen went black with “technical difficulties” – then they cut away to the ESPN studios.
Strange. The WAR ON JESUS rages right in front of our on TV and no one sees it.
How and why did that happen? This is the biggest golf event in the world – there’s no way there going to have any technical problems. They panicked and cut away because they thought he was going to praise and honor Jesus Christ.
It’s the same thing that in NFL when players gather at the 50 yard line after the game to pray and give thanks to Jesus – they constantly cut away and refuse to show it.
Bubba Watson has joined Jeremy Lin and Tim Tebow in a trinity of outstanding Christian athletes.
Bubba Watson won the Masters Golf Tournament on Easter Sunday in Augusta, Georgia and lost no time in showing his gratitude.
“I’d like to first thank Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior,” Watson said after putting on the famed green jacket (you can watch it at 00:50 in the above video).
Since he started on the PGA Tour, Watson has been outspoken about his Christian faith and is famous for testifying through his Tweets. As Fox News pointed out, the order of his description on Twitters says a lot about the golfer:
@bubbawatson: Christian. Husband. Daddy. Pro Golfer. Owner of General Lee 1.
“For me, it’s just showing the Light,” the 33-year-old said in a piece reported inCharisma News: “There’s people who want to put down Christians. I try to tell them Jesus loves you. It’s just a way to be strong in my faith.”
Bubba’s faith was very strong after winning the Masters when he sent out this celebratory tweets telling the world who he believes is his true master:
Bubba Watson tweets his faith, ‘showing the Light’
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association talked with Watson about the God dimension after the man-in-white’s quirky drive and weepy winning moment on Easter Sunday. Watson, after all, gives his Twitter profile
@bubbawatson as “Christian. Husband. Daddy. Pro Golfer. Owner of General Lee 1 (that’s the car from the Dukes of Hazard)
The BGEA story talks about Watson’s evolution as a believer, from finding church in high school to a more serious commitment to Christ in college. The 33-year-old said,
For me, it’s just showing the Light. There’s people who want to put down Christians. I try to tell them Jesus loves you. It’s just a way to be strong in my faith.
Watson is a regular in the PGA Tour’s weekly Bible study, along with Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar, Zach Johnson, Jonathan Byrd and Webb Simpson and 16 to 50 others on a given week when the group meets during a tournament, the BGEA story says.
Getting more in the Word and realizing that golf is just an avenue for Jesus to use me to reach as many people as I can.
Perhaps we’ll hear more on this as Watson moves across the talk show circuit this week.
