Tim Tebow

God Is Saving the Broncos

... Says Colorado Pastor

12/12/2011 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tim Tebow and Pastor Wayne Hanson
Broncos QB Tim Tebow is winning games because of God, pure and simple ... this according to a pastor at a Colorado church with ties to the Tebow family.

Pastor Wayne Hanson -- who runs Summit Church in Castle Rock, CO where Tim's dad often speaks -- tells TMZ God is actively intervening in Denver Broncos football games ... and aiding Tim on the field because of his strong faith.

Hanson tells us, "It's not luck. Luck isn't winning 6 games in a row. It's favor. God's favor."

Pastor Hanson adds, "God has blessed his hard work." 

We asked Hanson if Tebow would be winning games if he wasn't such a strong believer -- and the pastor replied, "No, of course not."

So far, it's the only plausible explanation for this insane Broncos winning streak.

Why not Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny or Tooth Fairy? That makes as much sense. Effing morons, so feeble minded to believe in religion, the biggest crock of crap ever.

I hate it when men in religious places of "authority" say crap like this. Cause when the Broncos aren't doing so hot, people will start blaming God. I also doubt God would be blessing Tim Tebow, who would prefers to play football and earn a paycheck on a Sunday but not go to church and worship the God who he speaks so highly of. At the end of the day actions really do speak louder than words.

I guess God only cares about football and individuals in the music industry.

It's unfortunate that the Colorado Pastor made these statements that are now being used against Tebow. Now ,if and when Tebow loses a game it will be more fodder against him and religion. Tebow didn't make those statements that are now being used against him. I live in Florida and a fan of the Gators to which Tebow played for in college. He truly talks the talk and walks the walk. He is truly sincere in his beliefs.

They should get another explanation from this pastor when the Broncos get their next loss. How does this pastor explain all the other God followers on other teams with losing records... guess their faith wasn't strong enough? By publicly correlating Tim's faith with winning, he also passing judgement on everyone else in the league who believes yet doesn't get the same benefits. It is simply not biblical.

I choose JESUS as my role model!

JESUS would never dishonor God by promoting a company named after the pagan goddess NIKE or wearing anything with the name of the pagan goddess NIKE.

JESUS HONORS GOD ONLY!

HONOR GOD and throw out NIKE!

Yes. GAWD IS HELPING A FOOTBALL TEAM WIN GAMES, while death and destruction continue worldwide. Either he's an evil douchebag or he doesn't exist. I happen to think it's the latter...
