Quarterback Aaron Rodgers Shared His Interesting Thoughts About Christianity


Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers is a pretty brave man, because a lot of us are well aware of what happens to outspoken NFL players, especially when they go against the grain.

Just look at Colin Kaepernick. He took a stand, spoke his mind, and now he’s out of a job in the NFL. Rodgers appeared on his girlfriend Danica Patrick’s podcast a few months ago and opened up about his skepticism of and changing relationship with Christianity.


One remark that got the attention of people was when Rodgers said,

“I don’t know how you can believe in a God who wants to condemn most of the planet to a fiery hell.

What type of loving, sensitive, omnipresent, omnipotent being wants to condemn his beautiful creation to a fiery hell at the end of all this?”

A good question, Mr. Rodgers.


This isn’t the first time that Rodgers has been open about this subject.

In a 2018 interview with ESPN the Magazine, he said,

“I remember asking a question as a young person about somebody in a remote rainforest because the words that I got were: ‘If you don’t confess your sins, then you’re going to hell.’ and I said, ‘What about the people who don’t have a Bible readily accessible?

I think in people’s lives who grew up in some sort of organized religion, there really comes a time when you start to question things more.”

You don’t often hear this kind of talk from high-profile athletes. I, for one, was glad to hear Aaron Rodgers go on the record questioning his beliefs and Christianity in general.

Here’s a clip of Rodgers from the interview with Danica Patrick.

What do you think? And has your faith evolved over the course of your life?
