I read an article on packersnews.com about Aaron Rodgers participating on a trip with a christian outreach prgram. Does anyone know if Aaron is a christian? That was one thing that I wish Brett would have done more of throughout his career was give thanks to God. He said that he wasn't a very spriritual man but Deanna seemed to have more of a relationship with Christ then he did.

If Aaron is a christian that adds to my growing positive opinion of the guy!

Long live Don Beebee!

He's a Christian, he said so during his press conference last Saturday during Fan Fest in Green Bay. You can listen to it on Packers.com .

Aaron Rodgers is a christian, said so in his press conference. I believe Brett should spend more time like Aaron talking about how God in all his games. I mean Deanna has a great relationship with God why doesn't Brett?

When he and his family lived in Ukiah they attended E-free church on Yosemite Drive. He was just a kid in elementary school and was a friend of one of my boys. His family had a strong Christian foundation back then, but where his faith is at this point in his life I don't know.

That's because Favre thinks he is God

This Article gives an inside look at Aaron Rodgers personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
He is quoted in the Article by says "“It is my daily walking in faith and dealing with life issues and not giving into temptation that can be very challenging,” he adds.“I am always struggling in finding time to daily grow in my faith. If you are not in the Word or focusing on Christ, or into prayer, you can’t help but slip at times."
I don't know when the Article was written but from it I believe the answer to this question is Yes. Arron Rodgers is a Christian.

Because it's a matter of the heart and it doesn't come by osmosis. Deanna's witness, is very important, whether she's a submissive and loving wife -- which no one knows by public appearances or by public words, and is something the Lord can use to touch Brett's heart but it definitely takes the Lord's drawing to bring a man to himself.

That's a shame. I used to really think he was awesome, but upon learning this news, then I will have to withdraw my support.

Dear Jesus, protect me from your followers.

Calling this statement by you anything but completely out of line would be ridiculous. Why do people have to attack someone who actually died for them. I wonder if soldiers that died for you would get the same disrespect.

Ed and Darla Rodgers raised their kids in a Christian home. Their life
in Chico, California was centered around church, family, and sports.
Ed, a local chiropractor, credits his wife for helping to raise their
three sons in a proper way.“My boys are humble,” he said to a local
paper,“and that’s what makes us most proud.”

This Sunday, middle son, Aaron, will be on display with that humility,
as he leads the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV against the
Pittsburgh Steelers. In the Green Bay lockerroom, coaches and
teammates know all about Aaron Rodgers leadership and quarterback
skills. His arm strength has been described as “ridiculous.” His
uncanny ability to find receivers and get the ball to them has made
him the NFL all time career leader in passer rating at 98.4. But they
also see the character that was developed at an early age.

“I grew up knowing what a stable relationship was by my parents example,
and how it centered on Christ,” Rodgers says.“When our family had its
ups and downs, I knew my parents relied on God for everything, and he
always got us through the rough spots.” Until he was 17, Aaron says he
went to church because his parents went to church. But about this time,
he began to make some choices with his buddies that he knew were not
right. It was then he rededicated his life to the Lord.“Ever since
then,” he says,“I fall on my face and get back up, get on my knees
and confess, and keep on trying to live for Jesus.”

This would also describe his play. No one can question his toughness.
After two concussions this year, Rodgers came back to lead the Packers
to their first NFC championship since 1998. It hasn’t been an easy
road for Rodgers. After three years as a backup quarterback, he was
called on to take the place of the legendary Brett Favre, who had been
the starting QB for the Pack since 1992. His steady play was largely
overshadowed by Favre’s “unretirement” and subsequent trade to the New
York Jets.

Rodgers is used to being overlooked. After a fine high school career at
Pleasant Valley High School, in Chico, he got exactly one Division 1
offer, and decided, instead, to go 30 miles down the road and play for
Butte Community College in Oroville, CA, Here he led the the team to a
10-1 record and a #2 national ranking. After one year, he signed to
play for the University of California, leading them to a #5 national
ranking in 2004. In the 2005 NFL draft, the Packers made him their #1
pick overall.

As a Christian, Aaron is a solid individual, but as one teammate said,
“He will not stand on the bleachers and shout.” In fact, Aaron often
quotes St. Francis of Assisi, who said,“Preach the Gospel at all
times and when necessary, use words.” He often quotes his favorite
Bible passage of Psalm 91:1-2. It reads “He who dwells in the shelter
of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say
of the Lord,‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.
’”

He may need that and more this Sunday night as he faces the onslaught
of Troy Polamalu and the Steeler defense. But when it is all said and
done, and the Lombardi trophy, named after the former Green Bay coach,
is handed out to someone, Aaron Rodgers will walk away exemplifying
the example of both his earthly and his heavenly Father.“I try to
live my life in a way that reflects the Lord, he says.“I use that as
a model as I relate to my friends and family, my teammates and coaches.
I want them to see that I really love and care for them as individuals.
I try to build relationships. I feel if you are not personally
invested in the people you spend every day with, then you are missing
out on building a relationship and wonderful life experiences. This is
what I like about Jesus. Jesus is about relationships.” And you can be
sure that somewhere in that massive stadium on Sunday night, Ed and
Darla, and Luke and Jordan Rodgers will be proud of Aaron not just for
what he does, but for who he is.

As a result of watching his parents live their faith, Rodgers asked Jesus to be his Savior when he was very young. His faith grew through reading and studying the Bible and attending church.
There was a short time when Rodgers started to drift away; but he had two mentors to help steer him back in the right direction. Pastor Andrew Burchett was the youth pastor when Rodgers was a teen and Matt Hock was leader of their church youth group called “Young Life.” Their influence prompted Rodgers, at 16, to dedicate his life to living for Christ.
“Matt Hock was the first person who showed me how much fun and how cool it can be to be a Christian,” Rodgers says. Through “Young Life” Rodgers got involved in service mission projects and camp experiences, and built relationships that encouraged his and others’ Christian faith to grow.
He went on to be involved with Athletes in Action during his two years at the University of California, Berkley, where he led the Golden Bears to two bowl games and “the great victory over Stanford my junior year,” Rodgers adds.
When it comes to talking to others about his faith, Rodgers is not one who preaches or pushes his faith on others.“I like the saying from St. Francis of Assisi,‘Preach the gospel at all times, if necessary use words.’ I try to live my life in a way that reflects my faith in the Lord,” Rodgers says.“I don’t like to get in peoples’ faces. The best way for me is: Let your actions talk about your beliefs, start a relationship with others, then finally there is a chance for questions.”
