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.

George, you except that Billy Graham speaks for God? If so, why can't an NFL player, who is is the public eye do the same. Billy's work has been honored around the world, and while Tim Tebow does not purport to be an evangelist, he and his family are involved in evangelism. Read about it at their website.

God is rewarding Tebow for violating Matthew 6:5-6?

Jason Jenkins, you're taking the Scripture out of context. This passage is from the Lord and what He is saying that He knows that the Jews, who were praying in Public, did this for a "show". He was scorning them, because He KNEW why they were praying. These were the same Jews who were trying to KILL him and falsely accuse Him, because they were envious and jealous of Him.

Jason, it is you who are saying that what Tebow is doing is for a "show" and are trying to use Scripture to support it. There are Scriptures that are explicitly tied to certain occurrences, while others have a broader scope. Read and study, instead of trying to find fault with T.T. No real believer would condemn Tim for what he is doing. He is sparking interest in people about the Scripture.

Philippians 1:15 >>
New International Version (©1984)
"It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill". While Tim is not actually preaching here, it could be said that his gestures are are a religious nature.

Jason, another thing the people the Lord was talking about, was that they were often praying out loud, so that people would hear their prayers. They were trying to show how "holy" they were. They were also dressed in their "priestly" garb, drawing attention to the fact they they were church officials.

So now that Tebow lost 3 in a row and will lose against Pitsburgh in the playoffs, will this Pastor come back and admit he was wrong? What a joke.

See.. It's stuff like this is why I find religion to be completely false (No I don't have anything against religions people who worship). Apparently God takes time to help Sports figures out all the time.. Soooo where was God when his "Chosen People" were being slaughtered by the Nazi's? Must of been on vacation watching Golf.
