Ray Lewis won’t go so far as to call himself the Second Coming, but he’s close to believing himself a prophet of sorts, and if martyrdom is the price, so be it. “God has me to do what people are afraid to do: tell the truth,” he says. “Yes, racism does exist. Hatred exists every day. I’m not afraid. The worst thing that could happen to me — and I don’t see it as the worst — is to be killed and go to heaven.” There are many who won’t take kindly to Ray Lewis, of all people, telling them how to live. It was reported after Baltimore’s season-opening win at Tampa Bay three of Lewis’s sons were standing outside the Ravens’ locker room, with his name and number on their backs. When a woman walked by and call Ray a killer. It' s a great story of how Lewis has reformed his life by turning to God. The sad part is that it took that thing to turn him around. As a Christian I know that God don't want any one to be lost.
