Point-Counterpoint: Tim Tebow’s Pastor Says God is Helping Him Win Games, But the Church of Satan Doesn’t Agree [POLL]
Coming into this season, NOBODY gave quarterback Tim Tebow a chance to make it in the NFL. He was mocked not only for his supposedly deficient skills, but also for his very open devotion to Jesus.
Tebow got bumped up to starting QB for the Denver Broncos earlier this season, when the team was 1 and 4. Now they’re 8 and 5, and they’ve won their last SIX games.
Some of those victories have been come-from-behind affairs that have almost seemed…yeah, I’m gonna say it…MIRACULOUS.
And people are actually starting to ask the question: Is Tim Tebow being FUELED BY A HIGHER POWER?
Yes he is, according to one of Tebow’s pastors, Wayne Hanson, from the Summit Church in Castle Rock, Colorado
He says “It’s not luck. Luck isn’t winning six games in a row. It’s favor. God’s favor. God has blessed his hard work.”
Would Tebow be winning like this if he wasn’t such a strong believer? Hanson says “No, of course not.”
Assuming that God is helping Tebow and “awarding” him implies that God is HINDERING and PUNISHING other athletes and teams. Would God do such a thing?
Obviously, not everyone believes that. Like Peter H. Gilmore, the high priest of the Church of Satan. (???) He doesn’t believe God has anything to do with Tebow’s success.
He says “Satanists are atheists, and we would consider any triumph to rely on a combination of skill and luck…most certainly not in any form of supernatural intervention from either Heaven or Hell.”
However, he does believe that Tebow’s FAITH is a contributing factor.
He says, “Those who have a winning attitude tend to do better, and whatever fuels such team spirit, be it religious fervor or simply an overwhelming desire to succeed, is the real source for success.”
So here’s the BIG poll question:
