Hi, guys.

I was  just  curious about your  thoughts  on  this case. Personally, I think he has been falsely accused. I have seen a similar case in my county.    What are  your  thoughts ?

I don't have an opinion, I haven't followed the case.

If he is falsely accused shame on her and him for having an affair.

If he is guiltly shame on him and put him away for rape.  

Being a pro or ex-pro athlete does not mean that you are
above the law!

while it would be good to see a rich black man to be put away, to set an example for his species, it seems likely that this harlot is just falling back on this "rape" bull to put an innocent away

What kind of statement is this? I agree with emptyemerica. It definitely is not an attitude that would be pleasing to Christ. His species? He's human. What particular species are you referring to?

But in response to the post that started this thread, he, by his own admittance, stated publically that he had been unfaithful to his wife. I don't know whether Kobe is a Christian or not but the bible clearly states that our sins will not stay in the dark. God will eventually bring them into the light for all to see. Think of Jimmy Swaggart and how long he was "meeting" with that prostitute before he was found out. I'm sure that wasn't the first time. I once heard a sermon that described a pastor who had been having affairs with various women for 40+ years. At the height of his ministry when everything seemed to be going so great, he was found out and his whole life caved in on him.

This appears to be a similar situation with Kobe. Whether he did it or not, to me, isn't the relevent thing. Although with the evidence that I've heard along with the sudden dismissal of the case leads me to believe it was consentual and not a rape. More importantly, his sin of infidelity has been made public and no matter how great his basketball career may be, this is something that will never be forgotten. I see it as a wake-up call for him and perhaps that God is trying to touch his heart and draw him near.

In Christ Alone,

Stephen

Message to Kobe Bryant:

Kobe,

Bro you just cheated on your wife I dont care what you say about it your wrong. Then to top things off you ratted on your boy Shaquille ONeal. What were you thinking? Message just in you wasnt. Put the bottle down bro focus on what you do best playing ball. Sorry for rambling thats just my take.

The sin is adultry on Kobe's side, but since she isn't married or engaged it's a financial penalty, not the death penalty in the Bible. If the reports of her sexual behavior are true (towards Kobe before the encounter and with other men), it would be more a question of non-payment to a whore than anything else.
