I have a friend who loves to take controversial positions. He often likes to try and be the opposite of everyone else, just so he can fight about it.
He loves to take a stand even if he’s wrong simply for the debate. He has one radical position that really got me thinking recently.
Since I don’t want to sell him out we’ll give him a made up name. Let’s go with… oh I don’t know… Micahn (Pronounced MEE-KON).
Micahn happens to be the pastor of a church, and again, I don’t want to reveal his identity so we’ll say he lives in Yakima, WA.
So for review, this friend of mine named Micahn pastors a church in Yakima and loves to take controversial positions because he loves to debate.
Anyway, Micahn’s latest position is a frustrating one for me. He believes that if Jesus were to play for a Major League Baseball team it would be for the New York Yankees.
You read that correctly. He thinks Jesus would wear pinstripes.
Micahn. A man of God. The pastor of church in Yakima. Believes that if Jesus were to play Major League Baseball he’d be a Yankee.
So in response to this terrible position, I have decided to gather the best baseball minds and theologians (my dad, uncle and brothers), in order to prove Micahn wrong.
Which team would Jesus play for? It’s been a great biblical debate for at least the last minute or so that you’ve been reading this post.
Below are our findings on the subject. Feel free to disagree or agree with us, but please leave your own comment as we continue to try and solve this age-old debate.
Which Major League Baseball team would Jesus play for?
That leaves one clear choice, the Seattle Mariners.
It’s simple when you think about it. Jesus was used to living near water.
His best friends were fishermen. He spent tons of His time on a boat.
He “chose the things of this world that ARE NOT to shame the things that ARE!”
Yes, it’s settled, Jesus is a Seattle Mariner. Case closed.
Sorry friend I named “Micahn” for this post.
