Church of Satan

Tim Tebow's Delusional

... BUT IT'S WORKING

12/12/2011 3:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Peter H. Gilmore -- a high priest in the Church of Satan
God is not helping Tim Tebow ... this according to a rep for The Church of Satan.

But there is a devilish twist ... the rep tells us Tim's faith COULD actually play a significant role in his success on the field.

TMZ spoke with Magus Peter H. Gilmore -- a high priest in the Church -- who tells us it doesn't make sense to say God is helping Tim win games ... because that would mean God's actively making other teams lose ... and why would God do that?

But what does make sense is Tebow's mental state -- Gilmore tells us, "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."

Gilmore adds, "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."

It so sad how angry most of you are. If you allowed God into your heart, you would be much more at peace. I'm proud of Tim Tebow and the remarkable young man he is. Puzzling how his praying causes such a stir and yet other football players live a life of sin without as much controversy.
I love God and try to live my life pleasing to him. God Bless & have a great day in this Amazing world He created!

Gilmore comments "Satanists are atheists..." Can someone explain this to me? Atheists don't believe in God. Satan was an angel cast out of heaven for trying to over-throw God. How then, is it possible to believe in Satan without also believing in God?

I love Tebow because of his leadership and he understands there is much more to a QB than passing in the pocket. I questioned Harveys education when he made the comment that his religion will help "the church". for 2 thousand years "the church" is the Catholic Church and Tebow is Baptist.

1 Corinthians 1:18
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

You can't see the favor of God on someone when you understand Him. But I like how this guy still thinks he will keep winning in his own twist of word's.

Why is everybody making such a big deal out of this? Live and let live. I don't think people would be so interested if he was thanking other god. The packers are doing good and we don't know if they are asking for help from above or maybe.Who cares!

It isn't about God helping the Broncos- it is about Tim Tebows belief That all things are possible through God- no one else needs to believe in God, it only matters that Tim does.

On second thought maybe if opposing players believe in God the subconsciously are playing below par because they think God wants the Broncos to win.... Things that make you go ummmmmmmmmmm

If you havent been watching the games, then you have no idea what youre talking about. Im an atheist and the most improbable,impossible things have been happening, its enough to at least make me wonder or question if theres a god. Its not just Tebow doing amazing things, its the other team making impossible mistakes that basically never happen...it seriously feels like if you go against him,something bad will happen :o

But its funny how upset atheists are getting about this.

From what I've seen and read, Tebow seems like a guy who may not feel comfortable taking credit in the glaring spotlight. My Pastor has had to remind the sports fanatics in our congregation that praying for the players health is good. Praying for you're favorite team to win so you rub it in other peoples face is stupid. Tebow's not delusional. He just seems to be on an adrenaline high. Asking the Church of Satan to comment on this is dumber than anything that Tebow has said.

Why am I not surprised that TMZ has a contact with the church of satan. Harvey is super sensitive at the merest utterance of what he perceives as antisemitism but he has no problems demeaning the christian beliefs of others. hypocrite.

If Satanists are atheists then why do call themselves satanists? That like having the title as a capitalist but saying I'm a marxist.

This makes sense!
