Doped Up Athletes

According to a Wall Street Journal article, Floyd Landis, professional cyclist, has admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs to win races, and now has pointed the finger at Lance Armstrong as well.

Federal investigators are now exploring these accusations. If guilty, these athletes will be liable to their corporate sponsors for fraud, since they agreed to compete without using illegal drugs.

Jesus said in Matthew 16:26, "What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?"

Money from sponsorships, and a desire to win at all costs, can tempt many to sell their soul and undermine their integrity. If you're tempted by money or power, remember it comes with a great cost.
