And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes;
and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.
I'm really starting to get upset at the media trashing this kid over his faith. Sorry, but if this was any other player that was this devoted to any other religion it'd be hands off...they wouldn't even touch the subject. Yet for some reason it's become a fad to ridicule Christianity.
I can't stand the constant coverage as much as the next guy, but there's PLENTY of stuff you can start with without having to go after his beliefs or his religion. Let's imagine for a moment that Tim Tebow is NOT "too good to be true", what if he really is genuine and actually does devote that much time to ill children and his faith. What if he really is that devoted? If he is, then what does that make "us" and what does that make the media?
If the guy was a fake, he would've been found out by now. I've finally come to that opinion. I hated the guy when he was at Florida, but now I'm rooting for him. He really believes and I respect his devotion if nothing else. .
heard many stories where girls tried to corrupt him at uf but all they got was hand-holding and kisses on the cheeks
sometimes he'll get frisky and give them a side hug
Does the fact that he said it was 'semi-serious' equate it to being a complete joke? The anti-christ will blasphemy God, not praise or give glory to God, which Tebow seems to do after every game. Tim Tebow says he is a virgin and is saving himself for marriage. Last time I checked that is a godly attribute. The same verse he quoted (Daniel 11:37) says, "He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all." I think we all know that he has regarded the God of his father and has said multiple times "I thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ".
I've never heard a Jewish or Muslim athlete praise God every time they win a game either. People would also flip the f out if "praise be to Allah" was said on national tv.
I guess you don't follow the NBA...it's been done before. Not only that, but also boxing.
The media wouldn't touch that with a 10 foot pole. Who gives a crap what a athlete does when he scores...I thought this was a free country and a country with freedom to religion? If he wants to do that, why all the scrutiny? We're all allowed to praise our "god" right?
What scrutiny? Is anyone saying Tebow shouldn't be allowed to kneel and pray after scoring? If so I don't agree with them. A player should be able to bow to Jesus, say a Namaste prayer, do the Ickey shuffle, or whatever else they want to do after scoring a touchdown.
I have to admit, that was a hilarious premise for a story.
What I think would be really appropriate is if he did what he does....and the media hardly even noticed...
Be impressed, be disgusted for any number of reasons as a Christian or any other belief (including atheism), but keep your opinions to yourself. I will add that it is preposterous to acuse someone of being the Anti-Christ when they have not been seen or heard of committing a single sin. Even if you were right, it would be very wrong to make such statements at this time.
There can only be one anti-christ at a time. Bolded sounds like Obama.http://todaysbestemail.blogspot.com/2011/07/obamas-girlfriends.html
Muhammed Ali anyone?
It is funny and meant my first posting as a joke for the homeland security folks monitoring the web.
Tebow began a ritual of hosting someone who has been challenged by disease or disability for each Broncos game.
The honoree and his/her family is flown in to the game, meet with Tim before hand, given tickets to the game, and gets to spend more time with Tim after the game. All on Tebow's nickel.
Who else makes that kind of commitment? Why not? For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required.
I think it goes both ways. As much as I hate when people ridicule others because of their faith, I equally hate it when the followers of a religion ordain one of their fellow believers a blessed figure. It's the people that say things like "Jesus is behind Tim Tebow" and things like that that are causing the ridicule. The sad thing is that none of it is really Tebow's fault, it's more the media being it's typically pathetic self.
Turns out Tim Tebow isn't the Anti-Christ.
He's the Anti-Brady
