If you believe I've stated Tebow wins because of his faith you misrepresent me. I don't think nor communicate that for a second. What I've said all along is we all have our own relationship with Christ. It would seem you have great angst. Not sure why...not sure I care to discuss. Good night...

Not reading anything into it except your words, both past and present.
It's funny how you say you don't want to argue or debate, and yet all the argumentative, debating words seem to emanate from you.
This is not all bad; your spirit knows truth when it hears it. And, deep down, it knows that all this publicity being heaped on one young man--and the maniacal following that it has created--is spiritually unhealthy, and not good for anyone. Yes, all glory should be for God, but far too much of it is being heaped on Tebow. Whom has he saved that it should be thus?
A person's faith ought be a quiet thing, like the still small voice, itself. It ought be shared with those selected with a heart to listen, not advertised to the masses in ways that draw attention to self. It is fine that Tim Tebow loves the Lord, as billions do, but public spectacles of that love teach the unwise and unknowing that God is seeking public spectacle from believers...when His expressed will is exactly the opposite.
You will not debate with me, because you have nothing to debate. It is easier to walk away than to defend an indefensible position; easier to call a person "angst-ridden," though his words directed at you were simple, pure and true.
I bid you a good night, as well, and a Merry Christmas to you and yours.
