Tebow’s team goes down to defeat, what next?

I knew this day would come soon. I was asked this morning if I thought God was pulling for the Broncos and I responded, “No I do not. Many think that and for them it will be said that that devil Tom Brady brings the Tebow winning streak to a halt.”

Sure enough New England was victorious. I think that Tebow will continue to be an inspiration to his team and a good witness for Christ.

I read in the Memphis Commercial Appeal on 12-18-11 an article b y Otis L. Sanford (Sanford holds the Hardin Chair of Excellence in Journalism at the University of Memphis and is a columnist for The Commercial Appeal. Contact him at (901) 678-3669 or at o.sanford@memphis.edu). In this article he noted:

Even for the most ardent believers, it sometimes may be God’s will that we lose in order that we might gain a more important life lesson.
Tim Tebow understands this. Despite his outspoken Christian beliefs, he’s never claimed that God has a direct hand in causing the Broncos to win and their opponents to inexplicably fall apart at the end of games.
He does not demonize his opponents, and he does not assert that others aren’t capable of doing the job.
His explanation for success is that his faith gives him comfort and confidence when he’s on the football field.
“If you believe, then unbelievable things can sometimes be possible,” he said after his team’s comeback win against the Chicago Bears last Sunday.
That’s why I respect Tebow as a player and as a person. It’s why I’m becoming a fan.
And it’s why I’ll be watching this afternoon.
