Have you heard about Israel Folau?
On May 7, Israel Folau was found guilty of breaching Rugby Australia’s Code of Conduct.
The game’s all-time leading try scorer, who has played 73 tests for Australia has not committed any crime, or disgraced himself in public.
He posted a paraphrased Bible verse on his social media – something he has done often in the past.
His post declared the reality of sin, the need of repentance, the love of Christ, and the salvation that He offers.
"Warning: drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolaters. Hell awaits you. Repent! Only Jesus saves.
Those that are living in sin will end up in hell unless you repent. Jesus Christ loves you and is giving you time to turn away from your sin and come to him."
The backlash was immediate, intense, and of course inflamed by the media.
And now he stands to lose his entire career.
Israel needs to know that millions of Australians stand with Him.
His case is our case, because we want to be free to believe too.
By signing this letter, you can add your name to the scores of others who will affirm their support and prayers for him at what must be a difficult time.
Let Izzy know he’s not alone!
