Ray Lewis is going to make a lot of money as a motivational speaker in a few weeks when his playing days are over.  We all know Ray Lewis the leader, the tackling machine, and premier middle linebacker in NFL history.

Many of our younger NFL fans are not aware of the Ray Lewis that fought for his life in a double murder trial in 2000.  Lewis was eventually charged with obstructing justice after he and two gentleman he was with at the Super Bowl were charged with murder after a fight outside an Atlanta nightclub.

Lewis has lived an inspiring life since that tragic evening, but people were still affected.  Today after the Ravens defeated the Broncos in one of the most thrilling playoffs games in league history, Lewis was interviewed by CBS Sports sideline reporter.

In the midst of his past and all the violent things we have going on in today;s society, Lewis belted out these comments.

No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.

Lewis probably was no even thinking about the use of the word weapons and how it might coincide with the fact that their were weapons used in the same case he was on trial for.

Lewis may not have also been aware of the fact that he used weapon and the lord in the same comments also.  Which is similar to the same way crazy psychopaths try to explain why they decided to wake up and murder a bunch of people.

My point is I’m not judging Ray Lewis, because I have my own opinion of him and I’m aware of what he was trying to say. Was Lewis though out-of-bounds for using “Weapons” and the “Lord” in the same phrase given his past, and all that is going on in the world today?

    Um seriously?!? ““Weapons” and the “Lord” in the same phrase” well that phrase would be a bible verse. smh This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read.

      It is amazing. RL is a man of faith, a true inspiration and an example that people CAN change-that God IS able…Texans fan wishing Ray all the best.

    The fact that this even is a news storyis sad in society today.

  3. C.T. says:

    This is a reference to a scripture found in the book of Isaiah. Weapon in this context is not used in the sense of a gun or knife. So how can he be wrong for using weapon and Lord in the same sentence when this is what the Bible states? I’m lost on the point you were trying to make here. This is a very popular verse which speaks to the protection God gives over his people. Meaning no matter what comes your way God will protect you.

    It would only be foul to someone who doesn’t know the word!!!

  5. Big says:

    If you’re going to baselessly attack someone without backing yourself up with any facts, you should at least use proper grammar.

    “There” was A weapon used in the murder. Not “their.”

    At least the title isn’t “Fare or Foul”


  6. NatFan9 says:

    This is a rather ridiculous article. He is quoting Isaiah 15:47 King James 2000 version. bible.cc/isaiah/54-17.htm

  7. Nizzle says:

    You guys suck for writing this article. I promise you I boycott your stupid blog because of this. How dare you try to come up with something so off the wall to tarnish this great game that was played.

  8. anon says:

    he meant Isaiah 54:17

  9. Gilley says:

    The worst story ever. Lok. It’s a bible verse. Smh!!!!

  10. darryl shaw says:

    somebody need to take a PHONEBOOK use it as a weapon hit u in the head with it then ask GOD for forgiveness !!

    Ray was TOTALLY and COMPLETELY on point using the word “weapon’ and the Lord’s name in the same sentence. He was actually quoting a scripture (God’s holy word). What other name would he use? Your comment….”given his past” Seriously?? Romans 3:23 gives him FULL clearance to “call on the name of the Lord”! Furthermore, he was really witnessing and testifying to his own personal beliefs. Regardless of anything his past, God loves him and has a wonderful plan for his life. Even you, Glen, if you accept Him. Now back to the moment!! Go Ravens and congratulations on overcoming the “weapons formed against you”….they didn’t prosper!

    Dear Glenn Erby,
    I just want to say, and don’t take this the wrong way, hahahaha…this “story” makes me laugh. You could have googled the “phrase” and found out that it is in fact a Bible verse. What happened to gathering back up facts and information to your “common knowledge”? It’s great that you have your own opinion and all, but what’s your “opinion” based on? What’s the foundation? I find it awesome that Ray quoted a Bible verse and even MORE awesome that it was the one that says every tongue that rises against you in judgement you shall condemn! This just goes along with that fact that everyone is still judging and blaming him for a tragedy that happened 13 years ago, when in reality if you weren’t there you have NO CLUE that it was actually him. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty. If you don’t know, DON’T judge! God has the final judgement, not us as humans. He’s an amazing football player and obviously a believer. People need to simply back off. Oh and you might want to start using auto correct or something while typing…and just a little fyi so you don’t make a mistake again like the article above…DO YOUR RESEARCH :)

    Glenn Erby doesn’t know the word of God. That’s why he seems ignorant with his comments when in reality he is just lost. I pray for his salvation.

  15. I personally Feel blog post, “Fair Or Foul, Ray Lewis Use Of No Weapons In Post Game Comments?
    (Video) | Robert Littal Presents BlackSportsOnline” was in fact good!
    I personallycouldn’t agree with u more! At last appears like I reallyidentified a web site worth browsing. Thanks a lot, Arthur

    With all due respect to believers. There is no such thing as “Born in Sin”. Mother Mary could not have been a virgin. There might be a god but most likely there isn’t one. But I got to tell you I can’t explain his Super Bowl predictions in 2000 and his “No weapon formed…”. That is the stuff of legends.
