Is Maradona the best footballer of all time?
Worldwide there are 200,000 worshippers of Diego who attend the church of Maradona. The faithful follow their own ‘bespoke’ ten commandments which urge them to ‘love football above everything’ and ‘name your first son Diego’.
The Church of Maradona insists that you get baptised by slapping a football!
There are three ways of looking at this odd story.
Materialists will dub this ‘mere superstition’.
Relativists will nod approvingly: whatever works for you.
Christians will stress that trusting in the Maradona faith cannot wipe away your sins. Those who love and trust in Jesus have their sins forgiven.
