The NBA Finals is starting today June 4th 2015 with Golden State Warriors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers facing off. I just wanted to do my review about what this means to me, which might be different than you've heard before.
Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors is the NBA MVP

I first saw Curry when he played for Davidson and his underdog small school team made it all the way to the elite eight mostly just because of his amazing shooting abilities. It was very refreshing to see the young man thank God and Jesus after the games, he's a real Christian - and I hope this is still true and will remain true. What do I mean by this?
Well, on the other side of the game you have Lebron James

Maybe you don't understand the inside culture of the rich and the famous. They make it out to be some mysterious thing, but in reality it's simply the worst kind of sin you can imagine done in the most expensive ways to excite and further erode the people's morality and ability to escape with any semblance of a conscience. Anyways...
I haven't noticed Curry flashing any Illuminati symbols as of yet, but he is in a lot of commercials and is has been awarded the most valuable player in the league. All of this lime light must be difficult for a young man to contend with. He is married and has a young daughter, so it seems he is staying true to his faith, but I'm sure there is a story behind the scenes that would tell of his struggle to stay true to his faith in Jesus Christ in an Anti-Christ system of which is he is being courted to join. He is very talented, and athletes have a special ability to get to the top of the society without selling out, because of their physical ability. Musicians and actors have merely an subjective talent when it comes down to it and often are forced to sell their souls to get to the top levels of their trade. Curry though is at the top level of his trade and seemingly hasn't sold out...but will he?
Pete Maravich played his whole career and only became a born again Christian after his playing days were over. Curry is in a different time though and also he has began with the faith. It's my hope that beyond this game and who wins, that Curry will remain true to his faith in Jesus Christ above all things - even and especially basketball in the NBA.
I mean really, it's simply just a game. All the money, fame, and favor given to the players and the idolatry that surrounds the games is simply a wicked mess that any true believer in Jesus Christ wants no part of. We all know what ridicule Tim Tebow endured because of he like to show his faith in Jesus Christ, yet Stephen Curry being the absolute best player in the NBA is bound to even influence more people with his outward belief in our savior. He does this by often by pounding his heart and pointing to the sky when he makes a shot, giving the glory to God. Although he is soft spoken and not brazen, he will also straight up give glory to Jesus Christ (not just the vague God others mention)! In the clip below he shows where his priorities are when he gives all the glory to you guessed it: Jesus Christ, check it out:
Praise God for Stephen Curry, but let's not forget to pray for this wonderful young man who has such positive influence on the youth of this country. Keep an eye and ear out and see if his faith continues to be talked about or if it begins to fade with the spotlight and flattery of this beast system trying to court him and nullify his faith in Jesus.
Let's keep in mind the real battle here, and look to see if he gives glory to Jesus after a win in the finals, this is the true championship, cause everyone without Jesus Christ is ultimately a loser in the end. That includes King James.
Keep these things in mind when watching the finals this year...it might mean more to you.

Has Stephen Curry Sold Out to the Anti-Christ Beast System?
