Houston Rocket Shooting Guard Wears His Faith on His Wrists?
Fans have been trying to figure out if James Harden is a Christian, some questioning if his trademark beard meant he was Muslim, while others wondered about him giving glory to God after games.
It turns out, Harden is apparently a Christian — as the wristband he was spotted wearing during a recent game seems to indicate. The “IJNIP” band (In Jesus Name I Play) made by Active Faith Sports Apparel was spotted on both of Harden’s wrists.
Active Faith also recently reached out to Harden’s teammate, Jeremy Lin, getting the Rockets point guard to sign a few jerseys to be given away.
Rocket no. 25, Chandler Parsons, also rocks the “In Jesus Name I Play” wristbands.
Active Faith, founded by Lanny Smith, works with athletes from various fields in its mission to “use the platform that athletics provides to represent our faith while sharing and spreading the word of God.”
