Skip to comments.Tim Tebow's 'Iron Sharpens Iron' Pep Talk Has Sports Media Quoting Scripture
Posted on 12/03/2011 6:59:26 AM PST by InvisibleChurch
Ask Tim Tebow to speak and one thing is certain chances are good that the outspoken Christian quarterback for the Denver Broncos will talk about his love for Jesus.
Quotes from Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow's "Iron sharpens iron" pre-game speech before the San Diego Chargers game last week is making the rounds in the sports world, November 2011.
It is so clear that Tebow will not shy away from interjecting his faith at any opportunity that sports reporters now seem more accustomed to him including Scripture references and game-life applications coming from the Bible in locker room post-game interviews.
Even more amazing, reporters and sports analysts are leading their broadcasts and stories with Tebows Scripture references.
On Monday, after the Broncos overtime win over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, Denver Post sports writer Mark Kiszla wrote in his lead, the opening paragraph: Quarterback Tim Tebow no longer prints Bible verses on his eye black, but the Broncos believe what their quarterback is preaching. On the eve of Denver's 16-13 overtime victory against San Diego, Tebow's message to teammates was Proverbs 27:17.

I love this guy.
I would not be surprised if someday this young man became President.
What stuns me is that if a player was doing this 100 years ago, no one would have batted an eye. It would have been commonplace. This shows how far down the Progressives have dragged this nation into a Godless abyss. We must take this nation back, and I stand with Tim Tebow, who is doing one man’s part in the struggle.
This kind of moral fibre and reliance on Providence could cause us to pull ourselves together as a nation and avert impending disaster...
More like a hundred men.
IMHO, Tebow is doing more than one man's part. That's how leaders operate :-)
The press might be shocked about this, but think about where most of these guys come from: the are mostly from the middle to lower class, and a majority are probably from the south.
This behavior is surprising to us wispy and catholic northeasterners. But it is not that out of place in the Southern Baptist belt across the south.
Greatest and boldest since Reggie White.
and he comes from just down the street to where we live, what a great guy.
he is from just down the street to where we are and you are right.
All people around here are like him and when the tourists come and some stay they all get pissed off with the natives, hunting, churches etc.
LOL Hey we have a 200 plus foot cross here in town which lights up at night and there is nothing the left can do about it LOL.
Course this town is the first place where a Christian prayer was ever said in north America
We need an army of men and women like him.
We’re going to use the “iron sharpens iron” passage as inspiration for our struggling CYO team next year. He is so inspirational to the Christian youth in this counrty. I really hope he knows the power his belief has on the kids!
” Be not afraid “
Good for Him. We need more and more of his kind of belief system. We have been trained to keep our mouthes shut regarding our Belief in Jesus Christ.
Remember Christs words “ He who denies me on earth, I will deny before my Father “.
I remember in the ‘80s one year was designated the Year of the Bible. I remember, I believe a Seattle Seahawk player on commercials promoting the Year and the Book. Maybe Jim Zorn or Steve Largent. Anyone else remember this?
Lets just hope he doesnt get caught up in the medias scandalmongering.
It only takes one accusation. And it doesnt even have to be true.
go to my local chick fil a here in St Augustine and they always say have a blessed day,< this is the same town where Tebow comes from, first Christian prayer was ever said >
Since going there I find myself saying have a blessed day to others and it’;s quite surprising how many say it back.
It’s about time we all spoke up and stood up for what we believe in whether it be marriage or how the media are to Tebow.
The left have tried to shut us all up for decades and enough is enough but now they go after Tebow and can’t understand how so many in this country are defending him
Jim Harbaugh used that line immediately after the 49ers loss to the Ravens on Thanksgiving and it didn’t even get a mention around here. Tebow is a copycat.
God bless Tim Tebow
I follow football closely and have heard that Proverb quoted about 500 times from various coaches over the years.
Then we must each start with ourselves.
Yes, he’s copying Christ. Try it!
If a man cannot be a Christian in the place where he is,
He cannot be a Christian anywhere.— Henry Ward Beecher p.42 note 33 America’s God and Country. I weary of those who insist a Christian dare not be a Christian lest they offend the unbeliever. A christian doctrine that does not offend the darkness isn’t worth much is it?
I’m from Alabama and love Tebow. I remember one time the corporate wonks came to the warehouse where I worked. They were shocked that some of the workers had Biblical quotes on their work stations. They wanted it stopped. We told them that considering most of the folks also had a bible in their work station they might reconsider. They got the picture and hurried out of there, muttering something about “hicks”.
Me too! If Denver doesn’t want him I would love to see him in DC next year.
There are many believers in the NFL. Anyone who has actually been to a live game has surely seen players of each team, sometimes as one group, on their knees before, after the game, and most especially when a brother in arms is down on the field. Tebow’s insistence on continuing his vocal praise on TV is about the only way a Christian can raise his middle finger at his detractors. Personally, I love it!
Yes, the Force is strong with this one.
I have an autograph from Largent from way back in the ‘80s. He included a bible verse with his signature.
vote for Tebow for All-Pro team.
To me it’s a message that this is the kind of athlete I very much appreciate.
