RELIGION, SPORTS AND POLITICS ~ the most popular topics in America! This is especially true during the silly season of American politics and NFL Playoffs.
Was God on Tim Tebow’s side
in the land of the Patriots Saturday
when his team took on New England in the NFC playoffs?
Tebow needed more than a few
if he was going to defeat the Patriots
The game between the Denver Brocos and the New England Patriots is likely to be the most-watched NFL playoff contest in history, as America’s choir boy Tim Tebow faced Tom Brady, the playboy powerhouse.
Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow takes his helmet off following an NFL divisional playoff football game against the New England Patriots Saturday, Jan. 14, 2012, in Foxborough, Mass.
The Patriots defeated the Broncos 45-10.
Tim Tebow ~ favourite Bible passage is John 3:16,
threw for 316 yards,
31.6 yards per pass and
had an overtime with a TV rating of 31.6
“When we place our dependence in God, we are unencumbered, and we have no worry. . . .This confidence, this sureness of action, is both contagious and an aid to the perfect action. The rest is in the hands of God — and this is the same God, gentlemen, who has won all of His battles up to now.” VINCE LOMBARDI 1964
Commenting on athletes and religious displays a few year ago: “It’s just plain silly,” said Dan Barker, 55, a minister turned atheist, and a spokesman for the 5,300-member Freedom from Religion Foundation. “When you throw a football and you pray, do the laws of nature change? Does the elliptical curve of the ball through the air suddenly swerve, or what? Is God blessing you for winning and is God cursing the other team for losing? Just the arrogance of that; it’s one thing to be happy and thankful, but to put it on religion, it’s so uncivil, because everybody has different religions.”
If you are a deeply religious football player (or any athlete) and your team loses, do you say, “Thank you, lord, for letting us lose.”?
I believe Tebow may be an exceptional person, but I don’t believe God wants him to win more than he does any other athlete. But it’s an argument that can never be won.
