     “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.   6  But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. Sums it up for me.  I use Kurt Warner as my guide here, he acknowleged his faith, but didn't beat me to death with it.

    Amen Brother!

    This is sports, something I enjoy in part as a distraction politics where at least three presidential candidates hear voices they presume are God whose told them to run the country. 

    To beleive that with all of the starvation, rape, mass muder, slavery, drought, etc. . .  Yes, God takes off Sunday, (and Monday & Thursdays nights) to pick winners & losers in sporting events. 

    Now if only those darn Jets, or Raiders, or Chiefs prayed harder God would favor them more. 

    Yeah, that's what decides winners & losers.

    In Response to Re: Just sayin', maybe the problem people have with Tim Tebow... : Maybe. I posted this so people might THINK ABOUT why Tim Tebow's actions offend them...I believe it could be for a number of reasons. One reason may be their own attitude toward the one he is pointing to when he points toward the sky. Just sayin'...

    No, it's arrogance to think God has picked you out to be better than those around you.  It's why so many of the Republican Presidential Candidates are hard to take seriously.  At least three of them admit to hearing God tell them to run, that they are the best quailified person to lead our country.

    It's amazing how much time Jesus spent denying he was divine, not denying God himself.

    It's FOOTBALL not a Jesus revival! He can be religious , I really have no problem with his beliefs but I believe that there is a time & place for things, everytime he talks he talks about Jesus & that he loves him, it is a little much., it's a little much. I really don't think Jesus cares about football or any sport!!! I wonder what people would be saying if a player started praising Allah? I'm sure it would cause some controversy.

    Oh, really? He never denied who He was. I'm surprised that you would claim that He denied His divinity.  I may be wrong, but when?

    When have I stated that God "picked me out to be better?" When have I referenced myself and my standing? I have merely stated the reason why I posted this thread.

    He is saying "we get the point, stop beating it to death" but he shouldn't worry.  By next year, Tebow will be over.  Just look at where Orton is now.

    Tim Tebow Closes National Prayer Breakfast in Prayer, 02/04/2010

    "Dear Jesus, thank you for this day today. Thank you for bringing together so many people that have a platform to influence people for you.

    Lord as we disperse today, let us be united in love, hope, and peace. Lord, let us come together as one and break down all the barriers in between us that separate us. Lord you came to seek and save that which is lost, and we thank you for that. Lord we don’t know what the future holds, but we know who holds the future, and in that there is peace, and in that there is comfort, and in that there is hope.

    Lord we pray for the people all over the world that are hurting right now.

    The verse that comes to mind is James 1: 2-4, "Consider it all joy, my brethren, whenever you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete lacking in nothing."

    And we pray for the people in Haiti right now Lord, that you make them perfect and complete because you love them and have a plan for their lives, just as you do with our lives now.

    So my prayer, as we leave today, that we are united as one because of you. We love you and thank you. In Jesus name, amen."

    I am actually rooting for TIim Tebow to succeed not for  any personal act or beliefs he has.

    His success will once again prove the so called NFL Experts / Scouts / Pundits wrong. I think 99% of these types have gone  on the record that he was not an NFL QB...he runs and offense that is not just college but old school Big 10 and he cannot succeed.

    I simply love to see it when the consensus beliefs of experts get shot out of the water regardless of the discipline or field.

    My problem witrh Tebow is simple, he's a terrible QB, but people act like he's an elite QB. 

    The guy goes 2-10, 9-20 and 5-15 and and his team pulls out a win and it's Tebow being Tebow. What the PUCK?!! The dude did nothing for 55 minutes and plays well for the final 5 minutes and everyone crowns him the next Joe Montana! 

    What happens when the defense can't hold a team to a close game? Do any of you trust Tim Tebow to QB his team from a deficit? I know I don't!

    I will restate my point, as it may not come across the way I meant it.  I don't have a problem with his religion.  I think I feel the same way about his overcelebration as I feel about ANY overcelebration.  When a DE gets a sack, and is pumped, ok.  But stopping and doing a dance about it is stupid.  Tebow overcelebrates, period.  He can tell his "wife" he loves "her", just stop making out every three steps.  
    Posted by Davedsone

      exactly, it's way tacky.  It's like religious b-porn.  I mean if you want to be a real porn star then nail yourself to a cross while the defense has the field (God I wish he'd do it and keep winning).  And then when they loose a game, to sing "always look on the bright side of life.... do doot do doot do doot do doot do do doot"   C'mon Tebow and the Tebow-ites! where's your sense of cosmic absurdity?               
     
      I may have put one too many "do doots" up above.  If any one is a Monty Python scholar feel free to correct me on this.

    That commercial was paid for by Focus on the Family, and was really just an advertisement for their Website. The group has been around longer than Tebow.

      I am a Pats fan #1 living in Colorado and I am amused at all this clammer about Tebow. Never has he shoved anything down my throat. He just expresses his beliefs. I dont remember once where he asked me to belive as he does. He prays, it is an assumption on others part that he is praying for victory. He is praying for his love of God. God may not care about who wins but he cares how we treat others. Tebow only talks about his love for God and all he is about is helping others and showing the way (BY HIS ACTIONS NOT HIS WORDS)
      Frankly he is a breath of fresh air. While other athletes are pimping some cologne or some energy drink or some clothing line in which they receive revenue, Tebow is simply a guy who always talks about the team, doing what the coaches ask him to never talks about his stats, always sees winning as the only thing that matters (as opposed to Ortiz who is worried about an RBI he is not credited with). He is a breath of fresh air. Just watch him in the next couple of years, hold your tongue and see what happens. It is early on in his career we dont know yet and cant know. Yeah he will improve in his passing stas no doubt he is young. Why in the world is this guy getting so much ink on a patriots message board anyway. Let him be and stop being a hater

    I believe in God, but tend to think he overdoes it a bit.  That said, I have no business telling him to practice his religion to a lesser extent.  I'd rather see that than some funky dance.

    Are people more hostile towards religion nowadays, or did I simply not notice people complaining about Mark Bavaro when he played?

    Tyson and Ali didn't fight with the excerpts of the Qu'ran all over their face. I see that as a huge difference, seeing as how plenty of other NFL players are religious as well. Tebow overdoes it, get over it.

    In Response to Re: Just sayin', maybe the problem people have with Tim Tebow... : Well, they are donors to the group.  But the main point is that he is 'in your face' about it ... and I think it's closer to false religion than true religion. The guy grandstands on a national stage. I think it's heretical to link God to a sport at least at the level he takes it to. There are starving children, war victims, rape, disease, massive corporate theft, a host of problems in this world, and Tebow acts like he is God's champion when he scores a touchdown, and whether he wins or loses is what's really on the mind of a power that supposedly created the known world.

    Jeez, I think you're being a little too sensitive. The guy spent more time and money on charity by the time he was 22 then most people do their whole lives (blew 2.5 mil in 24 hours after getting an NFL contract on charity). If that's all for show than the world could use some more showmen. This uproar of him being in your face reminds me of awhile back when the Dean of a college (Harvard I think) banned any military recruiters from coming on campus. Not that I think people should join the military, but I find it absurd that even being asked was so offensive to people that they would go to great lengths to "fight the tyranny" they were being subjected to. And Tebow doesn't even go so far as to ask you to be a Christian (god forbid), he simply promoted that he thinks it has been a positive effect in his life. I'm picturing alot of people sitting around the thanksgiving table this year and when Uncle Joe says "Wow, this is some great turkey" they respond "Screw you Uncle Joe!, Why are you always trying to push your pro-turkey agenda on me. Get out of my face with all this turkey is great, turkey is the only way to live. You're such a hypocrite, just last week I saw you eating chicken. If you like turkey so much why do you feel the need to come out here in public and eat it, can't you just do it at home alone and let the rest of us live our lives. Go to heII."

    In Response to Re: Just sayin', maybe the problem people have with Tim Tebow... : Have you ever thought about your soul - can it be saved? Or perhaps you think that when you're dead you just stay in your grave Is God just a thought within your head or is He a part of you? Is Christ just a name that you read in a book when you were in school? When you think about death do you lose your breath Or do you keep your cool? Would you like to see the Pope on the end of a rope Do you think he's a fool? Well I have seen the truth, yes I've seen the light And I've changed my ways And I'll be prepared when you're lonely and scared At the end of our days Could it be you're afraid of what your friends might say If they knew you believe in God above? They should realize before they criticize That God is the only way to love Is your mind so small that you have to fall In with the pack wherever they run Will you still sneer when death is near And say they may as well worship the sun? I think it was true it was people like you that crucified Christ I think it is sad the opinion you had was the only one voiced Will you be so sure when your day is near, say you don't believe? You had the chance but you turned it down, now you can't retrieve Perhaps you'll think before you say that God is dead and gone Open your eyes, just realize that he's the one The only one who can save you now from all this sin and hate Or will you still jeer at all you hear? Yes! I think it's too late. AFTER FOREVER, Black Sabbath

    The truth.

    He's not a pure stand in the pocket QB with alot of offensive IQ. He has the running skills that can drive  a defense crazy. In the end he'll never be high caliber unless he trains all year for the next 2-3 years a learns proper throwing technique.

    In the end his morals and values toward his fellow man are endearing him to the nation. They'll forgiive his short comings in in his chosen trade of playing QB, because his faith is what is giving him the confidence to overcome obstacles.

       I have no problem with Tim Tebows beliefs or in the way he displays them. He isn't hurting me in any way. If this make him a better human being, more power to him.
       A player grabbing thier crotch or standing over another player pointing a finger at them, or taunting them in other ways or just plain acting like a jack @$$, is offensive to me. Yet, it seems Tebow takes a lot more grief for being a good human being. WOW.
      That being said, IMO, he sucks as a qb. I will be surprised if he is ever more than a back up.

    Like jehr5 said "He isn't hurting me in any way."  Frankly I could care less how anyone displays their religious faith.  Stand on the street and shout prayers to the heavens - rock on with your bad self.  This is America, and anyone regardless of religious belief, or lack of religious belief, has the right to practice and display as they want.  Doesn't make me uncomfortable in the least - and if it did, I'd walk away, change the channel, etc.
