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."

Tebow is humble enough to feel that there is something greater than himself. What's the problem? I've never heard Tebow say that God is letting him win. If he did, that's fine, too. He's witnessing to others who don't believe in God. That's his faith and he is entitled to it.

“In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” 2 Timothy 3:12

I guess even attractive pro football players can be disliked for believing in God. Tim Tebow is the man (even though he is currently on my ff bench). :)

How many members of the TMZ staff are members of the church of satan? Is Harvey? God is the supreme source of all action and inaction. Without God's grace, you jerks wouldn't be able to type your ceaseless crass comments that objectify women and paint them as one dimensional creatures that exist only as eye candy. Who over owns your site needs to start firing some people and hire actual grown ups to work there.

How can a person be a satanist AND an atheist? Doesn't the notion of Satan come from the same book that proclaims a God exists? The devil is God's arch-nemesis, right? As someone that isn't religious, his statement seems rather idiotic. Regardless, these two are both bat-droppings crazy, so what do I care. Let them battle it out in their imaginary world of Gods and Demons.

Satan is a creature created by God. He is the leader of the evil happening in this world and he got lots of followers and worshipers. The thing is, Satan is never ever a friend of anybody, he detests us humans and manage to manipulate many people with his deceitful ways to do evil and commit crimes. There is an important thing that his followers miss, is Satan and his fellow devils harm their followers and torture them before others and they end up having mysterious diseases, catastrophies, mental problems and others therefore losing everything!! Satan is not God, he cannot create anything, he just decieves those dim witted and weak minded people to believe he is the Creator!!!

What the BEEP is this article about. So some church of Satan guy says all Satanists are atheists? WHAT??? That makes no sense! Just as church groups said to believe in god you must believe in satan because they are part of the same beliefe system. To not believe in any higher power (atheists) doesn't work for someone claiming to be a satanist!
