The NCAA reportedly has shot down an interview with a three-time champion wrestler, apparently over his blunt, no-nonsense statement of his Christian faith.

“You can only get the [Holy Spirit] through Him,” explained Penn State wrestler Aaron Brooks, referencing Jesus, in the interview after he won a Big Ten title, for an amazing third time.

“Christ’s resurrection is everything! Not just His life, but His death and resurrection.”

“No false prophets, no Muhammad, no anyone else.”

Brooks’ comments:

But a report at the Right Scoop explained there was so much criticism that “the NCAA took down the video from Twitter…”

The league reportedly had posted it, then hastily torpedoed it, the report said.

“He doesn’t hesitate to give as much glory as he can muster to Jesus, referring to him first for his death and resurrection and noting that he believes he was given this platform to proclaim Jesus to the masses,” it continued.

“The comment that’s getting him criticism is this: ‘You can only get the [Holy Spirit] through Him. No false prophets, no Muhammad, no anyone else. Only Jesus Christ Himself.'”

The report said, “Now obviously Brooks doesn’t care about the criticism because he knows what he believes. But I guarantee you the NCAA wants nothing to do with this controversy and that’s why they’ve banished the interview from their social media accounts. And probably anywhere else they posted it.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: Question: Why do the political and corporate leaders of America – long the freest, most successful, most prosperous and most Christian nation in history – bow and scrape before China, a ruthless, communist, totalitarian and explicitly atheistic dictatorship openly committed to ruling the world, including America?

The astonishing answers come into focus only when one contemplates both the unprecedented level of political and financial corruption in America’s ruling class (multiple Biden family members received $31 million in payola from China), and simultaneously the communist Chinese government’s brilliantly devious methods of unconventional total warfare, by which China is stealthily infiltrating, subverting, corrupting and colonizing the United States of America.

The China threat has rarely been more dramatically or pointedly documented than in the sensational March issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOW CHINA IS CONQUERING AMERICA.” Whistleblower is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
