Page 4 of If Tim Tebow had this exact same season and was a known atheist would he be as beloved? I say no. I say he would be vilified and people would say things like, "imagine how good he would be if he believed in God."... 72 comments | 1121 Views | Go to page 1 →

We know that Lake Solomon is tough and we respect them greatly as our next opponent but as a believer of Jesus Christ we know that those fish swim just like the fish we caught today. We can catch them if we believe in ourselves and our bait and our gear. Only way to win the next battle is to believe. Praise Jesus."
    Funny...

Who knows how they would act.
    My point is, these guys were so intimately intertwined with God and their faith in Him, that they were open about it with all who would listen.

    God was real and present and personal to them. He was not some distant, mythical, imagined concept in their minds.

    Paul was imprisoned, stoned (with rocks thrown at him... come on... don't go there... lol), shipwrecked, beaten and yet he did not stop sharing the Gospel. I will grant you that TT and the Apostle Paul are two very different cats... but the notion of sincerely and genuinely expressing the Good News is a trait we are strongly encouraged (if not directly commanded) to do by Jesus Himself.

    Wow, wanting a person to fail is, well, just......Really?

    Something tells me you've never been made to feel an outcast, an outsider. When your last name is decidedly Eastern European ethnic growing up in a Kentucky world where everybody else is named Smith, Jones, Johnson or some other WASPy name, and it's made perfectly clear to you that "you're not one of us," maybe you'll understand. Until then, I don't expect you to appreciate it.

    I always thought Schue was kind of WASPy.

    Yeah, to see the reaction. To see if he would be given a pass by mainstream media or would he be labeled a hypocrite who gives Christians a bad name. Yep, that's what I said. I thoroughly enjoy many reality tv shows. That's what Timmy is at this point. I am 100% sure whatever failure he could have he would bounce back from it.

    Yeah, if OJ was released and was fit enough to play a sport I'd root for him if he was on a team I liked. I truly mean it when I say I could care less what they do off the field. With the exeption of pedophilia and child pornographers off the field activities is not a determining factor in why I like any athlete.

    If Tim makes a mistake and he will I wonder how the Press wil treat him. I reckon it would be the type of mistake. He knows Curse words, and I think he wants to be married some day and likes girls. Does he drive fast and runs a yellow light? Will he get mad at a face mask pull thats not called?

    We all Sin and fall short of the Glory of God.

    Sounds as if you know him. LOL! And I agree he would probably bounce back if he had a failure.


    To each his own I guess!
