Looking for a role model in the NFL? Look no further than New York Giants Cornerback Prince Amukamara. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. It is always refreshing to see professional athletes standing strong for their Christian beliefs. During a recent interview with Muscle & Fitness magazine, Amukamara talked about how his Christian faith has defined his views on remaining abstinent until marriage. Amukamara said he is not ashamed of being a virgin and staying away from alcohol and drugs. In explaining his Christian walk, he said getting to Heaven is not about following a list of do's or don't's, it's "about having a relationship with Jesus." But, he acknowledges that living by biblical principles makes sense. I'm thankful for athletes like Amukamara, but living by God's design is not just for Christian athletes, it's for all of us.
