Israel Folau Says He Must Resist Doing “Satan’s” Work
Wallabies fullback Israel Folau says he has been given several opportunities to save his career and make things “easier”, but feels he must resist the temptation or he will end up doing “Satan’s” work for him.
Folau was recently found guilty of a “high-level breach” by Rugby Australia and now looks set to have his contract terminated. But Folau was reportedly given every opportunity to apologise and remove his controversial homophobic post that got him into trouble in the first place.
And Folau feels if he backs down now and goes “back to the way it used to be”, he will be going down the path of Satan. Folau says the “will of God” always come first.
“There have been many opportunities to potentially make the situation a little bit easier,” he said.
“I could go back and play the game, get everything back to the way it used to be.”
“The way Satan works is he offers you stuff that could look good to the eye and makes you feel comfortable, and if you go down that path all the worries and troubles will go away.”
“It is always the will of God that comes first.”
