Tim Tebow, has never been afraid to take his faith on the field. He kneels in prayer before, during and after games. He led the Denver Broncos a miraculous win in January 2012. And, as if the win itself weren’t dramatic enough, the football phenom passed for an astonishing 316 yards in ten throws. That would be 31.6 yards a throw. Does that number sound familiar?
It’s the verse from the Gospel of John (3:16) that Mr. Tebow had written on his face.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Tebow had said previously that this verse is his favorite. When he wore the Scripture verse on his eye black during the National Championship Game in 2009, the term “John 3:16” was reportedly Googled more than 90 million times.
Yet, there have been uproars since among those whom disagree with the decision of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow to personally pray in public, specifically while on the field during game day. His brief kneeling-prayer of thanksgiving has been dubbed “Tebowing”. And one radio host, Bill Press, expressed his discontent with the matter by stating,
“… And you know what I want to say, S.T.F.U. I’m tired of hearing Tim Tebow and all this Jesus Talk… Everybody wants to make him a hero. I think he’s a disgrace. I think he’s an embarrassment.” – Bill Press
Why are they mocking Tebow?
Imagine if Tebow had been a Muslim. Would they still do that?… NO…
Maybe because he is reminding many of something they don’t wish to remember…
Talking to the Creator is the highest privilege!
