Tim Tebow, Faith in Football

Tim Tebow, Faith in Football
Nov. 15, 2011
A new Tim Tebow replica jersey is the latest fan item,  CBS News affiliate in Montana, KTVQ, reported. But others are calling the controversial jersey, with the name “Jesus” on the back in place of “Tebow,” blasphemous.
Jason Homer, a native Coloradan currently serving in the missions field in Lima, Peru, said the shirt is “ridiculous.”

“I think it is ridiculous that people are creating Jesus jerseys with Tebow´s number. I like Tebow but that is just wrong,” Homer told The Christian Post. “I do not agree with the way they are using the name of Jesus.”
“It is just disrespectful using his name on a jersey with Tebow’s number.”
Chris Gaudreau of Golden, Colo., agreed.

“It's making Tim Tebow out to be a god instead of an athlete. I'm happy he's a Christian and isn't afraid to demonstrate that, but for fans to hold him up in such high regard, perhaps comparing him to Jesus, is going too far,” Gaudreau said. “There are plenty of athletes who are Christians. Maybe they don't freely pray on the sidelines or use Bible verses on their FB pages, but he is being held in a regard that is probably embarrassing to him, as he seems very humble.”

However, other Christian fans think it’s a good promotion of their faith.
“I think it’s a good idea because it gets Jesus’ name out there,” said Sondra Simmons, a member of Applewood Baptist Church in Wheat Ridge, Colo. “I would think most Christians would be ok with it.”

"To me it just shows a cultural bias against Christ and Christianity," the Rev. Marcus Buckley of Riverside Baptist Church in Greer, Colo., told KTVQ. "It's not saying that he is Christ, it's saying he's trying to demonstrate and live that out and as Christians that's what were supposed to do," Buckley said.

The jerseys are just the latest buzz about the Christian quarterback who has been open about his faith.
Gaudreau said Tebow’s faith is admirable but the jerseys are not.
“I personally like him and the way he conducts himself, and he is a great role model. But, the jersey goes too far,” said Gaudreau.

Im no sports fan .. but .. I think a player named John has John - or his last name - on the back of his shirt - right?
Our name is not JESUS.
Jesus Christ is my Master.
We are Christ's ambassadors.

I once had a Tshirt specially made for me which had
JESUS LOVES ME  -  on the front, and
JESUS LOVES YOU  -  on the back
and I wore it out in crowds as a witness.

That is not calling myself Jesus!  Its  silent Gospel preaching!

Hhmmm...if Tebow's faith is Islam, and continues to profess his love for Allah, I wonder if Plummer would have any problem with this? I doubt it!

Plummer on Tebow: ‘When he accepts that we know that he loves Jesus Christ, I think I’ll like him a little better.’
From 2003 through 2006, Jake "The Snake" Plummer helped the Denver Broncos to a 39-15 record, throwing 71 touchdowns and 47 interceptions and making the Pro Bowl in 2005. He was probably the best bridge Mike Shanahan had between John Elway and Jay Cutler(notes), and he left the game after Shanahan decided to go after Cutler in the 2006 NFL draft, and Plummer was traded to Tampa Bay after that season.

Plummer was recently asked about Denver's latest quarterback, some fellow by the name of Tebow — you know, the guy who can't seem to consistently throw the ball, but who has the Broncos on a winning track nonetheless.

"I'm telling you, I came in at the wrong time down there," Plummer told Phoenix's XTRA Sports 910. "He is a winner, though. I like that because I think the town and the fans and everybody there — they are craving a winner. They lost one when I was run out of town. I don't have to say it. We won a lot of games when I was playing. It wasn't all me. The team was Rod Smith, John Lynch, all those guys. I had some ballers that could play. I didn't do it all, but we won and I think you can see [that] with [Tim] Tebow. He knows he's not the only cog down there as a piece of that puzzle that is making them win and helping them win."

And then, Plummer dropped the bomb. "Tebow, regardless of whether I wish he'd just shut up after a game and go hug his teammates, I think he's a winner and I respect that about him.  I think that when he accepts the fact that we know that he loves Jesus Christ then I think I'll like him a little better.  I don't hate him because of that, I just would rather not have to hear that every single time he takes a good snap or makes a good handoff…like you know, I understand, dude, where you're coming from ... but he is a baller. He knows how to win and when your teammates believe in you that you can do good things and that's what they are doing. They are winning. That's fun to see."

No doubt it will be less fun for Plummer when he gets hammered by the pro-Tebow crowd, though he seems to be the type of guy who doesn't really care what others think. And in the end, Plummer believes that Tebow will figure it out — right now, it's on every defense he faces to figure out whatever option packages are being served up by John Fox's coaching staff.

Hhhmmm...I wonder if Tebow is yet another celebrity puppet that's being used to deceive his fans into bowing down to the NWO Police State...
Personally, Tebow's just another celeb/politician that gave out his (fake)testimony to win over his fans/voters

December 17, 2011
Though he is impressed by their courage, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow is asking high school students who have been punished for Tebowing at school to play by the rules.

"You have to respect the position of authority and people that God's put as authority over you," Tebow said. "So that's part of it and just finding the right place and the right time to do things is part of it, too. But I think it does show courage from the kids, standing out and doing that, and some boldness."
He was speaking about 17-year-old twin brothers who were suspended by their Long Island high school this week for their salute to the Jesus-loving NFL quarterback.

We must be careful in our criticisms.

Mark 9:40  Anyone who is not against us is for us.

Not trying to be superstitious here(as the bible condemns this), however, Tebow threw for 316 yards today(in their win over Pittsburgh). Yes, 3:16 yards! Coincidence maybe, or maybe not?

Love him or hate him, but when it comes to Tebow, we're all witnesses
Sunday January 08, 2012   By Gregg Doyel |
Sunday strained credibility. It was incredible. It was fantastical. It was damn near a Bible story.    Laughing
With the country watching, Tebow threw for 316 yards Sunday against the Steelers - this game will go down in NFL lore as Tebow: 316 - including an 80-yard score to Demaryius Thomas on the first play of overtime, leading the Broncos to a 29-23 victory.

I dont watch or care about football, but Tebow is a great representative for Christ!  A visible reminder of His presenCe - EVERYWHERE! Exclamation   Very Happy

Don't want to start a football discussion(although personally I watch the games), but will say that Tebow's Broncos have a good shot at going deeper in the playoffs b/c the entire field is pretty much even(even though his team doesn't match the much better records of other team, the playing field is even as the other remaining teams have just as many weaknesses).

Tim Tebow Throws for 3:16 Yards in Stunning Playoff Upset
January 9, 2012   COMMENTARY
Tim Tebow threw for 316 yards in his first playoff game leading the Broncos over the Steelers in overtime. The yardage number is impressive, but is it miraculous? The significance of the number has to do with the Bible. John 3:16 is the Bible's most famous verse for salvation. It states: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life." Not only that but John 3:16 is the verse that Tim Tebow put on his eye black for the BCS championship game in 2009 for the University of Florida.

The matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos looked like a lopsided one to most fans. Denver backed into the playoffs losing its last 3 games. The Steelers were an 8 point favorite with a ton of both playoff and Super Bowl experience. Tebow's biggest supporters were starting to doubt his ability to continue to provide the magic for fourth- quarter heroics.

Denver got out to an early lead after it dominated the 12-win Pittsburgh Steelers in the first half. Tebow ended the first half with one rushing and one passing touchdown. Tebow took his Broncos into halftime up 20-6. The second half was all Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh defense held Tebow and his Broncos to 3 points and allowed the offense to tie the game up. At the end of the fourth quarter it looked like Pittsburgh was going to win the game. They were marching down the field with the clock running down. An unfortunate bad snap for a 23 yard loss put the Steelers out of game winning field goal range and they were forced to put to Denver and take the game to overtime.

The coin toss went Denver's way. One play and 80 passing yards later had Tebow was jumping into the stands to celebrate his first playoff win.
For anyone wondering his eyeblack message versus the Steelers was Hebrews 12:1-2.

You just can't make this stuff up!!

Tebow Time: The three 3:16 references, boffo TV ratings and Lady Gaga love
Jan. 9, 2012
The fact that Tebow had 316 yards passing and averaged 31.6 yards per pass in the game didn't escape notice on Sunday night.
Tebow wore John 3:16 on his eye black in the 2009 BCS Championship game and has since become identified with the famous Bible message. The coincidental stats caused millions of fans to perform Google searches on the Bible passage in the past 24 hours.
Here's one more unbelievable stat: John Ourand of Sports Business Journal reports that the final quarter-hour television rating for the Broncos-Steelers game was, you guessed it, 31.6

I was just given this information.
Tim Tebow is the child of missionaries.  The doctors told her she should abort him several times for medical reasons but she would not.
Instead they asked God to give them a boy and they would pray he would be used by God.


Tim Tebow
The mocking of the messenger of God

January  10, 2012   Bill Wilson
In his book “Through My Eyes,” Tim Tebow gives an account of how he wanted to switch his eye black from Philippians 4:13 to John 3:16 if his Florida Gators made it to the National Championship game in January 2009. He writes that Coach Urban Myers first response was, “You can’t. What are you thinking? Philippians 4:13 is such a great verse.” Tebow wrote that both of them knew it was a superstitious streak “bubbling up” in Coach Myers. Tebow stood his ground. Coach Myers replied, “Yeah, that’s a great one, too. Okay, that’ll be great!” Tebow wrote: “I’m told that ninety-four million people searched for John 3:16 on Google during and immediately following the National Championship Game.”

Not one network analyst picked the Denver Broncos to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday’s National Football League Wild Card game. In fact, during the week leading up to the game, there seemed to be more focus on second year Denver quarterback Tim Tebow than on any other player. Most network analysts and other sports columnists just love to mock God through Tebow. No other young quarterback is held to such scrutiny according to my personal observations. This young man has taken a stand for what is good and right in the eyes of the Lord and not even the sports media can embrace it. They can, however, mock him openly, couching their comments as critical analysis of his playing style.

Tebow’s Broncos won six straight games before losing three in a row. During the beginning of the winning streak, the commentators could hardly focus on anything, but Tebow’s faith--by and large mocking it. Then they backed off. Then the Broncos started losing games again. The commentators started bashing Tebow again, lacing their “analysis” with innuendo about his faith. They set the stage for Sunday’s matchup against the Steelers. It was a perfect Galatians 6:7 moment: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked.” Tebow ran for a touchdown and passed for two. He had an overall quarterback rating of 125.6 compared with Steelers’ veteran Super Bowl quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s 75.9.

It was a 316 kind of day. Tebow passed for 316 total yards for a 31.6 yard average. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Tim Tebow is carrying a message of hope, love and salvation in the name of the Lord. That makes him prophetic. He has been blessed with a big platform from which to speak. The response, however, has been indicative of the world we live in. Here’s a little more meat. 2 Chronicles 36:16 says, “But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against His people, until there was no remedy.”

I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.  
Philip 4:13

For God so loved the world,
that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.  
JOHN 3:16

It JUST TUMBLED!  Exclamation   Smile

From what I understand, there were other 316 references...the Pittsburgh Steelers(their opponent in that game) had time of possession of 31:06. And how about this - the Broncos HC and GM have the names of John.(John Fox and John Elway, respectively)

With the several 316 references, what does this mean? I don't know, to be honest, but none of this is a coincidence.

I will say this - the Steelers were a SHOE IN to run away with the game, largely b/c coming into that game, the Steelers were one of the best in the league, while Tebow's Broncos were merely mediocre(8-Cool that backed into the playoffs.

a hundred of you will chase ten thousand
Leviticus 26:8

Tim Tebow: The man behind the mania

Zack McLeod is Tim Tebow's kind of player — and man. And vice-versa.
The 20-year-old former high school football player won't snag any touchdown throws from his hero Saturday at Gillette Stadium when the Denver Broncos' on-field miracle-worker challenges the New England Patriots in an AFC Divisional playoff game. But McLeod just may catch a pass — and more compassion and love than he ever imagined.
As kickoff approaches, Tebow will do what he always does at pressure-packed times — give of himself. The 24-year-old quarterback will spend a few moments with McLeod , who suffered a traumatic brain injury playing football in 2008. They plan to meet on the sidelines as part of the Tebow Foundation's Wish 15 program that grants requests for young people with serious medical issues.

"When we told Zack (this week), he just screamed, 'Nooooo waaaay!' " says his father, Pat McLeod, who along with his wife, Tammy, work as Harvard University chaplains. " We are hoping Tim will throw him a pass. Zack still has great hands."

The son of evangelical missionaries, Tebow — voted America's new favorite athlete in an ESPN Sports poll — says giving a warm embrace and words of encouragement to those in need "puts everything into perspective" before a game.
"We're playing a game, and you want to win, but you know that it's not the end of the world," Tebow says . "Even a bad loss on the football field is better than spending a day (recovering) in a hospital."
Tebow discussed a wide range of topics in an exclusive interview with USA TODAY, including how he copes with fame.

The latest flashpoint came Sunday. The Broncos, stumbling into the playoffs with a three-game losing streak, shocked the Pittsburgh Steelers with a 29-23 wild-card victory in Denver. In an NFL-record 11 seconds, Tebow fired an 80-yard scoring dart that ended the overtime thriller and added to a season-long list of Tebow-engineered comeback exploits.
The can't-miss moment prompted the Internet to spasm with a flood of tweets.
"I don't have to live the roller coaster other people live with my life," Tebow says. "It's hard because people try to have an effect. I try to stay centered in my faith and my family and the close people around me."

Living a private life

Tebow's well-documented empathy and humanitarianism are easier to comprehend than Tebow the person, vastly more complex than Tebow the phenomenon. Attempting to uncover nuggets regarding his life beyond touchdown passes and charitable deeds is like trying to mine for gold in a dry Colorado creek bed. Corralling the otherwise-frisky Bronco to talk about himself can be a pleasant chore.
The cordial, media-savvy former Heisman Trophy winner surrenders very little regarding his personal life beyond perfunctory, sometimes well-rehearsed answers that reveal little. He is good-natured, polite as he scrambles from questions he prefers not to directly address.
"I think he's loosening up a bit," says Andrew Mason, editor and publisher of, which provides in-depth Broncos' coverage. "But I think we would all like to learn more about what makes him tick. For the moment, I see no reason not to believe this is who he is."
While many are willing to denigrate Tebow's fundamentals as a player — "I don't (read the internet); it's so hard because you hear so much (negative feedback)'' — and some are put off by his strong religious beliefs, there is little to criticize regarding his life off the field.
He often chats with a Florida-based pastor "to continually stay humble when it's going good and to stay confident when it's going bad," Tebow says. "Athletic ability can be taken away like that. It can all end in a heartbeat."
Tebow rarely discusses his frustrations with the sharper edges of fame and fortune, but the quarterback is a closet worrier. The cocoon-ish isolation of superstardom prompts him to conclude with a touch of melancholy, "It's hard to create new friendships outside sports."
Told that the public does not know much regarding his private life beyond his religious convictions, the hunky 6-3, 245-pounder — whose bare-chested advertisements have generated record sales for Jockey underwear — laughs nervously.
"I feel like I'm pretty open about stuff …if people look into it," he says a bit hesitantly. "Outside of football and training, I am somewhat of a homebody. Love hangin' out with my siblings and close friends. It is my favorite thing to do in the world. Love laughing — love tellin' jokes. I really try to enjoy life and have joy with what I do. I don't know, I guess that's a little inside look at me."

GOD vs SATAN?  Football Armageddon?
Salem witches plan to give Tom Brady a spiritual lift for Tebow rematch

God may be Tim Tebow's co-pilot, but it seems that Tom Brady, the quarterback Tebow's going up against this Saturday in the divisional round of the playoffs, has some otherworldly support from an unexpected source. A group of witches (Wicca? We want to be politically correct around here) in Salem, Massachusetts (yes, that Salem, Massachusetts), planned to gather on Friday the 13th (spooky!) to try and beat the Sports Illustrated cover curse for the New England Patriots quarterback, and give him the most supernatural force possible when going up against Tebow's Denver Broncos.
We're pretty sure we're not making this up.

Sorceress Laurie "Lorelei" Stathopoulos said that her coven wasn't quite as successful when planning a recent spiritual intervention for Charlie Sheen.
"You know, we had a hard time getting all the girls [fellow witches] to come," Lorelei told the Boston Herald of the Sheen attempt. "But when we told them this Circle was for Tom Brady, oh, everybody will be there!"

OK, this is just getting really stupid...seriously, this is dangerous stuff they're playing around with.

Patriots beat Broncos 45-10 in NFL playoffs
January 14, 2012
Tom Brady's way of dealing with Tebowmania was to silence it with a record-shattering performance.
Brady threw six touchdowns passes, five in the first half, and put the New England Patriots into the AFC championship game
after roughing up Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos 45-10 Saturday night.

The Patriots (14-3), winners of nine straight games, will host either Baltimore or Houston next Sunday for a spot in the Super Bowl.
This snapped a 3 game postseason losing streak, two of those at Gillette Stadium,
and lifted the Patriots to the verge of their fifth Super Bowl appearance in 11 seasons. They've won it three times.

Brady even punted with 2:56 remaining, 48 yards on third down.
And so ended one of the season's most exciting story lines -- one that caught the nation's attention and began when Denver was 1-4 and made Tebow a starter.
The one-time third-stringer promptly won six in a row and seven of eight, with a string of stunning comebacks, and the Broncos ended up backing into the AFC West title.


Saw the game last night - Tebow's Broncos just didn't look good.

During the game, BTW, Focus on the Family ran a John 3:16 ad which was read by little 5 year olds - disappointed to say, it looked like these kids were merely reading off of cue kids, and had no idea what any of these words meant. It was very poorly presented.

Football Armageddon
Salem witches gave Tom Brady a spiritual lift
Brady's team beat Tebow's Broncos last nite.
This gives the appearance that GOD LOST to Satan - the witches.

I think the Lord is telling those with ears to hear that GOD has given this time to satan for his 3.5 years that Revelation tells us is coming.

But due to man's sins he allows sin to take its course - for a season.
When Christ returns VERY SOON, He will chain satan in JAIL for 1,000 years! Smile

No, I do NOT look at football games having "prophetic" significance, but at the same time...
the New Orleans SAINTS LOST yesterday as well, albeit in a "falling away" dramatic fashion(lost 2 leads in the final 2 minutes), and the year before that, they LOST to a below average team in the 1st round of the playoffs.

It was only 2 years ago this same team WON the Super Bowl. Now they have "fallen"...
And look at the remaining teams left...

Giants (Nephilim)
Patriots(like you said above)
49ers(remember the "gold rush" way back in the Bay our present day, the dollar aka paper money is FALLING, and gold is RISING)
Packers(don't know, but saw on a youtube video last year that this word has some meaning with FEMA camps)

Again, no prophet significance, but again, be ye not deceived...

Tebow Bill May Help Home-School Students Play Football in Virginia: Fan Perspective
2/10/12  Home-schooled children in many states are allowed to participate in sporting events and teams through their local schools. However, this is not the case in Virginia and lawmakers are working to pass what they have called the "Tebow" bill.
This bill was named after Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow because, as a child, Tebow was home-schooled in Florida. Despite not attending his local high school, he was still allowed to try-out and participate in the school's football program.

There are currently 16 states in the country that allow home-schooled students to play sports through their local schools and Virginia is hoping to become the 17th state. As a parent who has tried home-schooling, I believe that this is fair and that children should be allowed to try-out at their local schools.

As parents of home-schooled children, you still pay the local taxes that support the schools and the sports programs, so there is no reason that your child should not be allowed to participate.
The "Tebow" bill passed the Virginia House on February 8th when delegates voted 59 to 39. The bill will now be sent to the Senate. Gov. Robert F. McDonnell has already stated that should the bill pass, he will sign it.


Peyton Manning goes from Colts to Broncos; decides on Denver

Per Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Peyton Manning has made his decision ... and he's taking his talent to the Mile High City. Mort reported that Manning had advised agent Tom Condon to wrap up negotiations on what is believed to be a five-year, $95 million offer. The belief is, according to multiple reports, that the Broncos will now try to trade quarterback Tim Tebow.

An expanded report from Mortensen and Adam Schefter indicates that Manning called Broncos VP of Operations John Elway on Monday morning to inform him of the decision. Manning also called the San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans, the other two teams in the running for Manning's services, to inform them.

Manning threw for Elway and a large group of Broncos and executives and coaches on Friday in North Carolina, and Elway was impressed.


No one wants a Christian  Sad
Teams that have discussed a trade for quarterback Tim Tebow, either internally or with the Denver Broncos, include the Jacksonville Jaguars, Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets

Tebow To Dolphins Next?  March 19, 2012
Now that the Miami Dolphins have moved on from Peyton Manning and lost out on free agent quarterback Matt Flynn, there’s another name that continues to percolate just below the surface who could be a major draw for Miami.

For the Dolphins to acquire Tebow, the Denver Broncos first had to acquire Peyton Manning.
Now that Manning has chosen to negotiate a new contract and play for the Broncos, Tebow is now available and the Fins need a draw like Tebowmania, regardless of the play on the field.
As wrote Friday morning, if the Fins lost out on both Manning and Flynn, “the only way owner Stephen Ross can make a big splash in the short term would be to put his trust in Tebow.”


Tim Tebow to the Jets for a fourth-round pick
3/21/12  After the Denver Broncos signed Peyton Manning, quarterback Tim Tebow needed a new home. He's found it. Tebow has been shipped to the New York Jets for a fourth-round draft pick.
Tebow became a sensation during the 2011 season. After starting the season as a backup to Kyle Orton, he started in a string of late-in-the-game comebacks. The Broncos released Orton, and Tebow seemed to be their man. But when Manning was released by the Colts, Broncos general manager John Elway jumped at the chance to sign him.

With the Jets, Tebow will have to compete with Mark Sanchez for a starting job. Sanchez threw seven interceptions in his last games as the team fell apart in the midst of a playoff race. The Jets finished the season 8-8, with losses to the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants and the hapless Miami Dolphins keeping the Jets from playoff contention.

Broncos, Jets work out Tebow trade
March 22, 2012  cnn
Tebow is an outspoken evangelical Christian.  Smile
The Denver Broncos announced Wednesday night they had finalized a trade that sends high-profile quarterback Tim Tebow to the New York Jets.
Tebow and a seventh-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft go the Jets in exchange for picks in the fourth and sixth rounds of the draft.
The Broncos said Tuesday that superstar quarterback Peyton Manning, a free agent, would join the team, setting in motion efforts to trade Tebow.
But the Broncos-Jets deal didn't come without a hitch. A snag was reported within hours of the Jets' saying they agreed in principle to the trade.
Beyond Manning's $95 million contract

ESPN, quoting a source with the Broncos, reported the hangup was over language in Tebow's contract. Sources told ESPN that the Jets believed Denver should pay $5 million in salary advances to Tebow. The Broncos have already paid $1.2 million of the advance, ESPN reported.
The Jets have agreed to pay half of the $5 million in compensation back to Denver to finish the trade, ESPN reported late Wednesday.


This trade doesn't make sense b/c the Jets gave Mark Sanchez a 3 year extension already(however, the 4th year QB is coming off a very bad year, as the entire Jets team).

Anyhow, that Jets coach needs to eat some HUMBLE pie.

Tim Tebow speaks to thousands in Georgetown
April 8, 2012
Easter is the Superbowl of Sundays for churches, and an NFL star turned Celebration Church's outdoor service into a semi-sporting event.
Church goers wore Tim Tebow's jersey and his iconic eye black, complete with his favorite scripture -- John 3:16.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life," Dakota Shipman recited.

Tebow didn't exactly preach -- instead the pastor of Celebration Church interviewed Tebow. He asked questions ranging from leadership to his famous prayers on the football field.
"I really don't think I was the first athlete to get on a knee and pray," Tebow said. "I had the same routine for the last seven years, and this past year they called it 'Tebowing,' which I have no idea why."

A crowd of roughly 30,000 listened from lawn chairs and blankets. The atmosphere was more of a rock concert than a quiet church service.
The logistics of putting on this massive service was incredible. The church rented 110 buses to shuttle people to the event from six nearby parking lots.
"We're going to have a lot of people here who normally wouldn't be at church on Easter Sunday," Collin Sanford said.

Tebow only briefly mentioned his move from Denver to New York.
"King of got traded. I'm on another team -- excited to be a Jet," Tebow said.
A devout Christian, Tebow's main focus Sunday was his faith.
"Regardless of what happens, I still honor my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, because at the end of the day, that's what's important, win or lose," Tebow said.


You can't make this up!! Shocked  Shocked


What in the devil is keeping Jets coach Rex Ryan from starting Tim Tebow over Mark Sanchez?

As the man standing between Tim Tebow and the New York Jets' starting quarterback job, Mark Sanchez is in a tough spot, at least in the eyes of those who suspect heavenly forces are perpetually working in the God-fearing backup's favor.

Mark Sanchez (L) and backup Tim Tebow during pregame warmups Monday night. (AP)After another precarious performance by Sanchez in a 23-17 defeat to the Houston Texans on Monday night, many devout Tebowites were left wondering what on earth could be keeping their hero from getting a shot.

They found their answer in a series of eerily profane numbers: Sanchez, who wears jersey No. 6, has six touchdown passes and six interceptions so far. He's averaging 6.6 yards per attempt, and his longest completion is 66 yards. His passer rating: 66.6.

Throw in a pregame tweet from Tebow noting that the Jets-Texans clash was the 666th Monday Night Football game, followed by the obligatory biblical passage, and the NFL might as well start printing Satanchez jerseys in green-and-white.

When such statistics are passed off as spiritually significant – as with Tebow's 316-yard passing performance for the Denver Broncos in last January's shocking playoff upset of the Pittsburgh Steelers, a number neatly matching his favorite Bible verse – my eyes tend to roll back in my head


Not that I endorse everything this guy in this video says, but he lays it out pretty good over how the NFL pretty much blackballed Tebow over the long haul. Recommended watch!


Add to that Khan in Jacksonville and his new GM that came right out said plainly Tebow in Jacksonville won't happen.

And who is this Khan?...

Shahid Khan (born c. 1952)[1] is a Pakistani-born American billionaire businessman. He is the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League (NFL) and owner of automobile parts manufacturer Flex-N-Gate Corp. in Urbana, Illinois.

As of 2012, Khan's net worth is over $2.5 billion. He is ranked 179th in the Forbes 400 list of richest Americans and is overall the 491st wealthiest person in the world.[2] He is also the richest person of Pakistani origin.

Khan was born in Lahore, Pakistan to a middle-class family which was involved in the construction business.[3] His mother (now retired) was a professor of mathematics.[1] He moved to the United States in 1968 at age 16[1] to study at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign.[4][5] When he came to the United States, he spent his first night in a $2/night room at the University Y-YMCA,[1] and his first job was washing dishes for $1.20 an hour.[1] He joined the Beta Theta Pi fraternity at the school.[6] He graduated from the UIUC School of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering with a BSc in 1971.[7][8] Khan acquired US citizenship in 1991. (cont.)[1]


Khan is Muslim...

Is there anything else you’d like to discuss, anything you’d like fans to understand about you?

I saw where religion was a big issue fofr some people. If you’re saying, ‘What’s your religion?’ I can tell you, it’s Muslim. These are personal, private kinds of things, but I don’t believe religion should come between a man and a Bud Light, OK. There were different expectations of things that were going to happen, but it’s, ‘Be Cool.’

On the flip side of the coin, look at the hypocrocy and wickedness of these same professional sports.
Well, they are of the world, and the world loves its own...

How did Ray Lewis go from murder suspect in 2000 to NFL royalty in 2013?
1/11/13  Thirteen years ago, Ray Lewis was in the back of a limousine speeding down an Atlanta street, leaving the chaos of what would become a notorious murder scene.
Today, Ray Lewis prepares to play his final minutes in the NFL as one of the most celebrated and iconic players in league history.

These are two sets of indisputable facts, facts that don't seem to connect in any meaningful way. To accept one set, you have to virtually ignore the other. It just doesn't make sense, no matter which angle you take. How does a man implicated in a double homicide end up receiving a congratulatory bear hug from the NFL commissioner in front of thousands of fans wearing his No. 52 jersey? From the other direction: How could a man who's done so much for his team and his community still be held accountable for a tragedy for which he was absolved?

From any angle, though, this question looms over the entire life and career of Ray Lewis: How on earth did he get here from there?
The story of Ray Lewis is the story of American culture at its most redemptive … and its most soulless. There are those who are willing to overlook what Lewis may or may not have done, and there are those who will never let the man escape suspicion.
What's inescapable is that as well as Ray Lewis played the game of football, he played the game of redemption even better.

"He's a remarkable case study of worst-to-first," says Vada Manager, a corporate strategist and a former Nike executive who helped guide the company's strategy during Kobe Bryant's rape accusations. "There aren't many athletes who have done what he's done in rebuilding his image from where it was to where it is today."

Some facts, to set the stage: Early on the morning of Jan. 31, 2000, Ray Lewis was in the Buckhead district of Atlanta, celebrating with friends in the wee hours after Super Bowl XXXIV. The Rams had just beaten the Titans in one of the most thrilling last-second finishes in the game's history.

Lewis was already a three-time Pro Bowler, certainly a star but not yet an icon. That night, he and a group of friends found themselves in a heated argument with another group outside an upscale bar. The argument turned physical, punches were thrown and Lewis and his companions piled into a limousine to leave the scene. Behind them, Jacinth Baker, age 21, and Richard Lollar, age 24, lay dying of stab wounds.

Again, these are facts. But the angle of those facts – the cause of the fight, the person (or persons) holding the knives, Lewis' knowledge of and involvement in the events – remains unknown. He and two of his companions were charged with murder. Lewis' attorneys negotiated a deal: dismissal of the murder charges in exchange for testimony against his colleagues, Reginald Oakley and Joseph Sweeting, and a plea of guilty to obstruction of justice, a misdemeanor.

Oakley and Sweeting were later acquitted of the murder charges. Lewis was fined $250,000 by the NFL, put on a one-year probation and would go on to reach undisclosed (and still confidential) settlements with the families of both victims.

More facts: The very next season, Lewis was not only in uniform, but also he would lead his Baltimore Ravens to the Super Bowl and win MVP. He would go on to amass 13 Pro Bowl invitations in his career, and when he leaves the game at the end of this postseason he will be considered one of the very best ever to play his position.

He's also a motivational tornado, an inspirational force of nature. Whether he's cheering on teammates, conversing with charitable groups or speaking to reporters, he wears his heart and his faith on the outside. (Where you can easily see them, a cynic would argue.)

An installment of the NFL Network's "A Football Life" focusing on Lewis that ran last fall shows his style in action. "We've got to savor these moments!" he tells his teammates at one point. "I couldn't see that when I was 24, 25! That's why God had to incarcerate me, so I could see how great his blessing was for me! So I had to come from a jail cell to the Super Bowl!"

He did exactly that, and much more. And he did so by being perhaps the best example of a rebuilt and re-created image. Manager notes that there are three consistent factors necessary for any public figure to change public perception, and Lewis hit all three perfectly:

1. Winning is redemptive. "The public is forgiving, the public will give you second chances," Manager explains. Lewis won immediately after the Atlanta incident, and while he hasn't been back to the Super Bowl since, he's continued to play at the height of his profession for more than a decade.

2. Rehabilitation begins at home. "He's been the consummate teammate; he's been a family man," Manager notes. "It's authentic. It's believable. Contrition is important … and there's no recidivism. He hasn't been involved with any problems since then."

3. Charity and image are essential. Lewis has been a vocal force for charity, and he's also shown a more deft touch to his public image, as with his humorous NFL ad with Tom Brady this season.

Of course, even if every athlete involved in scandal knows (or is taught) the three steps to redemption, not every athlete has the opportunity, the drive or the personality to be able to pull it off. Consider Pete Rose, whose star is forever tarnished by revelations of gambling while playing, or Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, both stained by allegations of steriod use. None of these players has the opportunity to "win" again at their chosen profession, and all three have chosen an adversarial or indifferent stance.

Uhm, that's not what scripture says.

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Eph 2:9  Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Act_2:38  Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

John 3:3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Joh 3:4  Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Joh 3:5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Joh 3:6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Joh 3:7  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

2Cor 5:10  For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Not that I ever endorsed the National Review, but nonetheless its readers are largely on the "conservative" side, where a good portion of them are self-professing Christians(or Churchianity folks, take your pick).

You know when the so-called "conservative" leaning media has hit an all-time low when they endorse RAY LEWIS, of all people, being some fervent Christian.

With Tebow Out, Christians Can Turn to Ray Lewis?


Here’s an amusing piece on the Ravens’ Ray Lewis that describes his faith, charity, commitment to family, and work habits. An excerpt:

Lewis is an unmarried father of six, and his relationships include people who have fallen on hard times. A boy who was the lone survivor when his mother drove her van into a river last spring. A 76-year-old cancer patient. A teenager with bone cancer — for whom he is paying medical expenses.

“It goes back to the idea that, ‘To much is given, much is required,’ ” Lewis says. “With all the things I’ve been through, the No. 1 thing that I’ve learned is that we’re supposed to help people through this world.”

He reflects on a big influence, Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe. And a not-so-big influence, the father who suddenly appeared three years ago.


Uhm...NO Ray...that's not what scripture says...

Matthew 10:11  And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
Mat 10:12  And when ye come into an house, salute it.
Mat 10:13  And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
Mat 10:14  And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
Mat 10:15  Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

John 17:8  For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
Joh 17:9  I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

1Cor 9:16  For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!

Jets Waive Tim Tebow


FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Tim Tebow has been waived by the Jets, the end of an unsuccessful one-season experiment in New York.

Coach Rex Ryan said in a statement put out by the team in announcing the move Monday morning: "Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped."

The Heisman Trophy winner attempted just eight passes after his ballyhooed arrival in a trade from the Denver Broncos in March 2012. He threw for 39 yards and rushed 32 times for 102 yards.

Meanwhile, starter Mark Sanchez struggled amid constant questions about Tebow's playing time. The Jets drafted quarterback Geno Smith in the second round of the NFL draft Friday.

Tebow had led the Broncos to the playoffs in 2011 but became expendable when Denver acquired Peyton Manning.

After Praising Gay NBA Player as 'Towering Figure,' NBC Dismisses Tebow as 'Spoof-Worthy' And 'Lackluster'
While Tuesday's NBC Today began by heralding gay NBA player Jason Collins as "a towering figure on the court" and in "sports history," later in the 7 a.m. ET hour, correspondent Craig Melvin regarded NFL quarterback Tim Tebow as an athlete who's "play never really matched the hype" and someone who became "spoof-worthy" due to his "well-publicized faith."

A clip played of Late Night host Jimmy Fallon mocking Tebow with a parody song set to David Bowie's "Ground Control to Major Tom": "Tim Tebow to Jesus Christ." Melvin followed: "On the field, Tebow struggled. His only season as a Jet, lackluster....His football future is uncertain. But Tebow could still cash-in on his carefully cultivated persona."

A quick look at Collins's career stats doesn't exactly show him to a top player in the NBA, only averaging three points per game. Yet the phrase "lackluster" never appeared in the coverage of him coming out.

Story Continues Below ↓


Yes, after looking at Collins's stats on the ESPN web site, it looks like he's been nothing more than a 2nd/3rd stringer his entire career.

Pt being that we'll see where this goes - he's 34, and with any typical 34 year old that's been a lifelong 2nd/3rd string, chances are they're on their way to retirement. But don't be surprise to see the pro-gay lobby make a big fuss if he can't land with a team anymore b/c of just that...

As for Tim Tebow - the Jets couldn't have gotten any worse than Mark Sanchez, otherwise they wouldn't have drafted Geno Smith.

Obama is pure Satan
Barak Satan Hussein Obama praises football for accepting queers - SIN - but he has no praise for Tebow.
Obama praises the slaughter of newborns.

Well, don't want to bring up a sports conversation here, but last week in the NFL draft, it was reported before the draft that 3 or so QBs would be taken in the 1st round(Matt Barkley, Geno Smith, and EJ Manuel).

Well, as it turned out, Manuel isn't even the best of the 3, but he was the only QB taken in the first round. And Smith was taken by the Jets(Tebow's team at the time) in the 2nd round. And FWIW too, Barkley wasn't taken until the 4th round.

Dunno, but it seemed like it was all pre-planned and by design where the Jets would take one of the top QBs in the 2nd round, hence giving them an excuse to push Tebow out of NY.

When Tebow became a winner in Denver, and won a playoff game in 2011, it was as if you know his days became numbered.

Tebow’s Camp Says NFL Career Might Be Done
The NFL might have seen its last bit of Tebowing.

A new report claims that some of those closest to Tim Tebow have suggested that the unemployed quarterback’s NFL career is likely done. ESPN’s David Fleming reports that members of Tebow’s own camp privately told him that his days in the league are “probably over.”

“He’s not a quarterback,” one scout was said to have told Fleming. “When you look at his run two years ago, when you watch the tape and break it down, he wasn’t really doing anything that impressive. He’s a tough guy, a great leader, a great person. But he isn’t a good enough quarterback to have all the distractions that come with him.”

To date, no NFL teams have shown an interest in signing Tebow, who created a national stir when he led the Broncos to an unlikely playoff win in the 2011 season over the Pittsburgh Steelers. His career derailed, though, after Denver brought in future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning, forcing the Broncos to trade him to the Jets. After a disappointing and tumultuous campaign as Mark Sanchez’s backup in New York, Tebow was released by the Jets.

Since then, he’s cleared waivers and the only team that’s shown any significant interest in his services is the Philadelphia Soul — of the Arena Football League.

If Tebow never starts another NFL game at quarterback, he would be the first player since Bob Lee to win a playoff game, remain on an NFL active roster the following season, and never start another regular-season game, according to

Report: Patriots signing Tim Tebow

The New England Patriots are expected to sign quarterback Tim Tebow and have him in minicamp by Tuesday, according to ESPN.

Tebow spent last season with the New York Jets, but only saw limited action. He finished the season with just eight passing attempts for 39 yards and zero touchdowns, and the Jets cut him on April 29.

As weeks went by with Tebow still unemployed, it seemed possible he may never play in the NFL again. Yahoo! Sports reported in May that New England head coach Bill Belichick did not like Tebow and that he said there was "no chance" of Tebow coming to the Patriots.

Belichick later refuted that report, and told that he wouldn't rule out the team signing Tebow.


Tim Tebow doesn’t get off the bench in third preseason game

Posted by Sid.Saraf on August 22nd, 2013 at 7:45 pm

Hey, were you waiting to see what Tim Tebow was gonna do in Thursday’s preseason game against the Lions? Well, we’ll have to see you next week because he didn’t get in the game this week.

For those of you following at home, here is his stat line: 0 for 0 for 0 yards, 0 TDs and 0 INTs. He also had 0 carries for 0 yards. That’s impressive.

The Patriots let Tom Brady play into the third quarter despite him getting cut on his hand. Brady finished 16 of 24 for 185 yards and an interception. Backup Ryan Mallett took the team the rest of the way, completing 11 of 22 passes for 96 yards and a touchdown. The Patriots ended up getting blown out 40-9.

By the way, don’t think the fans at Ford Field didn’t notice:

Tweets inside link

Well, it seems pretty clear that Tim Tebow is no higher than third on the depth chart. If it’s any comfort, he’ll get serious playing time next week, when NFL teams usually don’t let their starters or primary backups play much.

But at this point, it’s looking pretty grim. I still don’t know if he’s going to even make the team.

He is a very public EXAMPLE of the intensity of the HATRED of Christians -

Tim Tebow cut by New England Patriots

The Tim Tebow Experience is over in New England.

Tebow was released by the team Saturday, ending another chapter in the former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback's wandering pro career,'s Ian Rapoport was told by a source informed of the move.

Despite the requisite fervor draped upon Tebow's every move, it's far from a surprising transaction if the Patriots intended to fill their 53-man roster with the best players available. With Ryan Mallett firmly in place as Tom Brady's backup, Tebow played himself out of the role during an underwhelming preseason.


Giants CB Prince Amukamara: ‘Some People Call Me The Black Tim Tebow’

Tim Tebow is long gone from this town.

He was released by the Jets on April 29 and is now nothing more than an afterthought in New York.

But Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara is now being compared to Tebow, who was released by the Patriots on Aug. 31.

The comparison doesn’t have to do with their play on the field, but rather their actions off the field.

Big Blue’s first-round draft pick in 2011 told Muscle and Fitness that he never drinks alcohol, and is committed to staying celibate.

With that has come a nickname.

“Yeah, some people call me the black Tim Tebow,” the 24-year-old told the magazine. “I am a virgin. I’m not ashamed to say that.”

The Super Bowl XLVI champion is engaged, and he met his fiancee when he was out dancing at SL in the Meatpacking District – although it took some encouragement from his peers.

“(Teammates) Corey Webster and Aaron Ross made me go back,” Amukamara told Muscle and Fitness. ”They were like, ‘Go say something to her!’ And they were cheering me on. She thought we were all rowdy and drunk and she didn’t pay us any attention. Then, later, I was waiting for Ahmad (Bradshaw) and she came by and we struck up a conversation.

“I asked her for her email address because when someone asks for your number, it might be too personal and you might not want to give it. But if you ask for their email address, they’ll give it. I was right.”

Amukamara will likely imbibe for the first time in the coming months.

“I still haven’t had a drink,” the Nebraska alum said. “I told my fiance that I’ll probably take my first drink at my bachelor party. I grew up Catholic, so it just started out as one of those things. I’d think, ‘If I do this, maybe I can get to heaven,’ so I said no drinks, no sex, all the big things.”

Sorry, but you are CATHOLIC, hence your belief in WORKS to get you into Heaven. Tim Tebow is a CHRISTIAN and puts his faith in Jesus Christ. YOU ARE NO TIM TEBOW, and you're not even a Christian.

Trading for Tim Tebow was a mistake, former Jets GM now says

Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Former Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum, the man who traded for Tim Tebow, is now looking back on his career in New York. He's expressing some regrets, and guess who's right at the top?

"Obviously we made a couple mistakes," Tannenbaum told CBS Sports Radio, "trading for Tim Tebow most notably." The Jets dealt a fourth- and sixth-round pick to Denver to get Tebow in March 2012, and then proceeded to use him in no discernibly logical fashion whatsoever. Tebow's fans claimed that he was a playoff-winning quarterback who wasn't being used effectively; his detractors claimed that he simply didn't have the skill set to compete at an NFL level.

Regardless, the Jets went 6-10 in 2012, and Tannenbaum got the boot. So too did Tebow, who caught on for a preseason stint with the Patriots but got cut before the season began.

Tannenbaum also talked about problems that the Jets roster had from the bottom up, but you don't really care about that, do you? No, you want more Tebow, so here it is: Tannenbaum added that he believes Tebow will return to the NFL. "I would never bet against Tim," he said. "We used to have an expression that Tim's the type of guy who's either going to be successful or die trying. His relentlessness and passion ... I would think he'll get another opportunity."

We shall see. Tebow is currently employed as a commentator for ESPN's SEC Network, but has made no secret of his desire to continue to seek a job as a quarterback in the NFL. Begin your smart comebacks to his heartfelt dream in 3, 2, 1 ...
Eagles signing Tebow as No. 4 quarterback only

Tim Tebow is back in the NFL. And Chip Kelly's offseason just got juicier.

The Philadelphia Eagles plan to bring in quarterback Tim Tebow and sign him Monday as they begin their offseason PROGRAM, FOX Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer reports. Multiple outlets later CONFIRMED the report.

The Eagles are looking for a fourth quarterback for their offseason program. After spending time with Tebow's quarterbacks coach Tom House, the Eagles are convinced he's improved a lot, Glazer reports.

Tebow, who hasn't played in an NFL regular season game since 2012, was brought in for a workout for the Eagles last month.

"I've always been a fan of Tim," Kelly told NFL Network last month. "We bring in a lot of players for private workouts, it's just he's the one that everyone keeps talking about. We brought in Terrelle Pryor for a workout and Thad Lewis in for a workout. When players are AVAILABLE for you to work them out, it's the same thing of going to the veteran combine or going to the super regional combine.

Report: Mets to sign Tim Tebow to minor league contract

The New York Mets will sign former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow to a minor-league contract, reports's Adam Schefter.

Financial terms and length of contract were not disclosed.

Tebow, 29, will now report to the Instructional League or the Arizona Fall League. The Arizona Fall League schedule runs from Oct. 11 to Nov. 19.

Tebow worked out for 28 out the 30 MLB teams during a showcase on Aug. 30, showing impressive power, running the 60-yard dash and doing outfield drills.

Among the teams that were reportedly interested in Tebow include the Atlanta Braves, who said earlier this week that they were engaged in conversations with Tebow's representatives with the possibility of signing him to a deal.

Tebow hasn't played organized baseball since his junior year in high school and spent six seasons on various NFL rosters, although he hadn't appeared in a NFL regular season game since 2012 when he was a member of the New York Jets. Forum Index -> CHAPEL
