Marking the 67th anniversary of the day Jackie Robinson broke baseball’s color barrier, the Rev. Jesse Jackson praised commissioner Bud Selig for the strides the sport has taken in minority opportunities over the past two decades. Selig retired Robinson’s No. 42 in 1997 on the 50th anniversary of the big league debut of the Brooklyn Dodgers first baseman. Selig established a Diverse Business Partners program the following year and in 1999 started requiring clubs to consider at least one minority for each manager and major executive opening. MLB also sponsors 35 Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholars. On this day, all major league baseball teams wear #42 in memory of the beloved Jackie!
Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.
Matthew 24:4-5 (NIV)
Taught during the last week of His life, Jesus was giving His followers some strong boundaries so that they would not fall away after He was gone. Here he talks of people who say that they are the Christ (“anointed one”). Notice the word “deceive”. To be deceived is to not know the difference between the truth and a falsehood – they both look the same. There are many voices today that proclaim to be God’s anointed, but Jesus explicitly tells us that He is God’s final statement to humanity. There is no other.
