The fact that a message like this aired on liberal CNN at a time when deriding Christianity is commonplace and accepted is truly shocking. Watson, a pro-life activist who describes himself as “an outspoken Christian,” received widespread support on Twitter for openly discussing his faith.
Life can change in the blink of an eye. Damar’s injury has made us all wrestle with this truth. It has served as a reminder of own mortality. While we pray for him as he fights for his life we must ask ourselves where will we spend eternity?

Thank you, Jesus, for this opportunity and for providing Benjamin with the words! Protect those seeds and may they fall on hearts of fertile soil!— Rich Shipe (@RichShipe) January 5, 2023
Some Twitter commenters agreed with Watson that this heartbreaking incident has sparked renewed conversations about God.
Wow! Thank you Ben. For being bold and up front. You’re absolutely correct eternity in Christ, is the better choice without a single doubt!— ✭ naty ✭ (@cowboys_chic) January 5, 2023
When CPR was being administered to Hamlin, players on both teams were seen praying for him on live TV.
I can clearly see God using this incident to bring light to His kingdom. The power of prayer being seen everywhere, and His people coming together is what He’s called us to do this whole time!! ✝️— Amanda “Panda” Bell 🐼🏴☠️ (@jrgurl88) January 5, 2023
The demonstration of faith was seen by millions of viewers: The “Monday Night Football” broadcast in which Hamlin collapsed in the first quarter was the most watched in ESPN’s history. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
