‘Cleansed and Reborn in JESUS Name!’: NFL Team Uses Hotel Pool for Baptism Just Hours Before Kickoff
The Philadelphia Eagles could possibly be the most spiritually active NFL team around.
And in the latest public showing of biblical allegiance, a photo posted to Twitter shows wide receiver Marcus Johnson being baptized in a hotel pool while surrounded by his teammates.
“First time being Baptized! Corporate Worship is a beautiful thing!!” Johnson wrote in a tweet that accompanies the photo. “Cleansed & Reborn in JESUS name!”
CBS News reported that quarterback Carson Wentz, backup quarterback Nick Foles, tight end Zach Ertz, tight end Trey Burton, offensive guard Stefen Wisniewski and linebacker Jordan Hicks appeared to be standing around the pool praying.
