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.

Okay this is silly. God doesn't care about a football game. The defense, Tim Tebow, the FG kicker and good running by Magahee is why the Broncos are winning games not God.

God doesn't care about football in particular. But God does care of his message being spread to the world. If it takes a QB winning games in order to so that, I'm sure he's cheering Tebow on. The fact is, it's Tebow's FAITH that has them winning games. Weather you believe what the bible says "With Faith as small as a mustard seed you can move mountains" or if you believe in the "Power of positive thinking", Tebow is winning because he has Faith. Now when you are a believe in Christ and you have faith in Christ alone, God will honor you're faith and righteousness. This is what you see happening...Tebow continues to honor God in his winning, and God continue's to give him a platform to do so. Gifts come without repentance, but when you use those gifts to glorify God, it seems to make things A LOT easier! And YES, GOD IS REAL!

Im a huge bronco fan. I love TT. and this pastor and stupid comments like this are the dumbest thing in the world. If you really think god has something to do with this game or any sporting event. you need help.
TT, the defense, the offense the team is what is winning these games not some divine intervention from your made up savior. Tim please just keep balling and tell your pastor to shut up

How utterly ridiculous for this pastor to say God is the reason Tebow is winning. What a joke this "pastor" is!

This thing called "God" is based on mythology. God has always been used to explain that which was not explainable to those that did not want to learn or find out. I laugh when I see ball players give props to "God" and point to the sky guy when they make a touch down or hit a home run but I never have seen them give the finger when they get intercepted or fly out. Bunch of cultist sheep.

What a stupid arrogant statement... people are dying, losing homes, kids are being kidnapped and murdered, but hey God has time to over see and influence football games because one of the players prays for a win...Give me a damn break.

Here's who is helping the Broncos win: The Broncos' Defense. If there is a god and that god is doing this on Sunday afternoons, I have an issue with the starving children that continue to die around the world unabated while this god sits in his private Broncos SkyBox.

This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Really?! Don't you think if there is such a thing as God, he would have more important things to be concerned with than Tebow and his football team? These people are off the chain

Fact is, God cares about everything with regard to the Believer. This is Tim Tebow's professional occupation and you better believe that God is interested in how well he does his job. But to "unbelievers" this is just sport. But remember, this is what Tim does for a living? If any of these apparent "unbelievers" actually had a pallet for the things of God, there would be no need for response. But the response is characteristic of unbelievers. I'm not necessarily a Broncos Fan, but I'm a God fan. God showed up, big-time in my life. I lost a house I paid for 20 years; but out of the loss came the means to pay for a house CASH--just three months after losing the house. That was the time it took for me to find and close on the new house.
