If Bierria never played in the NFL again, he could handle it. He believes everything -- even the bad things -- happens for a reason. A phrase in the Bible echoes in his head. It goes: "It's only in the depths of silence that the voice of God can be heard." Although life without football is more silent than he imagined.Does that sound like Scripture to you? It didn't to me, so I looked it up on BibleGateway, for just about every English translation. Nothing came up. So I tried a few different versions of Googling it; the results are here.
It turns out that this phrase was not spoken by Moses, or David, or Isaiah, or Zephaniah, or Jesus Christ, or the Apostle Paul, but by Indian mystic Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
I know we're all ecumenical and big-tent now, but isn't extending Monsieur Baba the privilege of adding to the canon taking things just a bit far?
