Tim Tebow
TheCollegeConservative Blog ^ | December 8, 2011 | Gabriella Hoffman

Whether you love him or hate him, Denver Broncos phenom quarterback Tim Tebow is a force to be reckoned with.

Regardless of how one views Tebow’s playing style—whether or not it is amenable to one’s tastes or preferences—they should reconcile his sportsmanship with his righteous character.

It is apparent that the sensational (and equally accomplished) 24-year-old football star faces unmitigated scrutiny from the media.

What exactly has he perpetrated that beckons their attention, one might ask?

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

Psalm 91:1-4

Simple. He's open about his Christianity. It makes him a lightning rod for criticism. Never mind that he's 5 - 1 as a starter, he doesn't even have the President of Operations of his own franchise - John Elway - on his side.

Maybe he’s only an average athlete as football players go, but he has a rare spirit that helps inspire all of the Broncos. His life is not for naught.

"Christ is on my team. Screw the bastards rooting for the other side."

Reminds me of a song by Billy Joe Shaver: "If you don't love Jesus Go To Hell".

Seriously I love me some Tebow. He is showing the "Experts" He can win doing it his way. They said the wrong thing to him. You Can't. It only motivated him more.
He is the poster boy (Man) for the right to life.
Remember his mother was told she would not live unless she aborted him.

She's very much alive now; not even medical science has the wisdom of Solomon and sometimes it screws up royally.

I`m amazed (or more annoyed) at the negative reaction Tebow is getting for offering prayer on the field. In an era of chest thumping, tribal dancing, crotch grabbing and other “look at me” antics in the NFL, I find Tebow`s spirit-driven humility refreshing.

The MSM might tolerate someone identifying as a Christian, but if you practice Christianity you have gone too far.

I watched Tim Tebow play for the first time on TV last week and knew he was special. Half of the time he was not even paying attention to the game as he seemed to meditate or prayed on the sideline. He put God first before the game of football and He rewarded him.

Not to mention the absolute love of ex-cons and convicted felons still allowed to be in the league because we’re all about second chances

I am currently reversing the horrible affects of osteoarthritis with various diet and exercise regimes. While I give all this miraculous achievement to the Glory of G-d, I’m going to mention to my Radiologist that I credit this to running into Tim Tebow at an airport just for a dig ;D!

Thank you for posting that uplifting Scripture!

No one should be surprised. He told us this would happen.

...they should reconcile his sportsmanship with his righteous character.

Denver isn't paying him for his righteous character, they're paying him to win football games. Right now Tebow is taking advantage of a 4th place schedule in a weak division, and a defense playing above expectations to ring up wins. But if he stops doing that then he'll be history.

>> Remember his mother was told she would not live unless she aborted him.

And not to forget the related commercial where they tried to accuse him of violence against woman.

Look, Gene, I can appreciate your sentiment here but c'mon. When you put these two posts side by side they're more than a little discordant. Shrug that stuff off, step back from the 'puter, and say a short prayer.

Discordant when you omit the imputation that I have authority over Christ. My comment stands, but thanks for the advice.

I’ve got a different playbook, so I guess I am on a different team.
