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.

Really? We're putting God in charge of football? Get real people. So what if he prays. Nobody makes a big deal out of other players "rituals". Personally, you can pray to God without making a public statement about it. Just saying...

I find it truly ironic that the Pope, God's #1 guy, rides around in a bullet proof Popemobile. You'd think he'd either have a little more faith...or at least be anxious to meet his maker. Go figger...

I'm glad God cares more about some douche playing football than millions of starving and abused people all over the world.

God doesn't care about football. Come on! I am sure there are many just as devout Christians on the teams losing to the Broncos. So we are to believe God doesn't favor them? Ridiculous.

A fairytale character is helping them win?

...Ummm Yeah Right. Religious people are insane.

That statement has as much validity as saying "Donald Duck is helping the Broncos."

I'm sure God has more things to worry about then if the broncos win or lose anything. If He is concentrating on on that then He needs to rearrange his priorities a little bit.

I think God has a little more on his plate to worry about a football game and what are they going to say when he goes on a losing streak.

the media love fest with tebow makes me sick.sure he is a good kid..but he isnt a good qb.they keep saying well he is winning..i mean its like he kicked the 59 yard fg to send the game into ot and he forced the fumble and recovered it in OT.

The Christian God would frown on this kind of arrogance. Man is meant to help himself, not throw a hail Mary pass to God every time the going gets tough.

The Broncos won yesterday's game because the Bears made 2 crucial errors. God had nothing to do with it.
