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.

God gives talent, we use it. God gave time talent, he's using it.

Stupid Pastor's should just stay out of it.

Man, what a numskull.

The Lord does give favor to those loyal to him. However, I would be careful of the false belief that if you are successful then God's favor is upon you and if you are not successful, then God doesn't give a crap about you!! It is written that God chastises the son that he favors. Every Christian, if you live long enough, will have trials in your life where you feel abandoned by God. But, seasons change and God will come to deliver you.

Sooooo when he loses a game it will be because God has forsaken him - wow what a capricious and shallow God, intervening in sports games while famines, poverty, and wars rage on. Who would ever want to believe in something like that? Just pathetic.

Why does God not give talent to children with cancer? That is a mean God.

Now which God are we talking about here? If only the Christian God is helping the Studs win then say so. But what are the rest of the Gods doing?? And is there a conspiracy to help the Broncos win late in any game???

But what about the other Gods???

In the Jewish Religion, there is only one God, Jehovah. In deference to Judaism, G_d is the correct spelling.

In the Islamic Religion, there is only one God, Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet. Allah has no intermediaries, no spouse, no children, and thus, Allah is One.

In the Sikh Religion, there is only One, Hari; who has many names and many forms.

In the Buddhist Religion, there are many Buddha’s, but not all Buddhists are deists or worshippers of Idols of Buddha. The first Buddha to attain enlightenment is Gautama Buddha, who is worshipped as a God in some strands of Buddhism.

In the Hindu Religion, there is one Formless God and a trinity of Creator, Preserver and Destroyer Gods.

There are many other gods and consorts.

In the Parsee Religion, Zoroastrianism, there is Ormazd, sometimes called "Ahura Mazda" or simply "Mazda", the most well known of their Gods.

There were other deities.

African religion has many deities

Mayan religion has many deities

Ancient Greek and Roman religions all had deities also.

The American Indians had their deities

Australian Aboriginals had their Gods and the Dreamtime.

There were Norse Gods, Scandinavian Gods, Celtic Gods, Druidic Gods, along with nature religions also.

Where ever there is mankind, there you will find worshipers of the Divine.

First of all the Pope is Catholic, not Christian. God doesn't favor football teams, we are all the same in His perfect eyes. For a pastor or minister to say something like that is non-sense. But he could have just been kidding. Lighten-up.

Right, because this crutch that many of you call God, likes him more than any other athlete.

Pastor Wayne Hanson has gone way out on a limb and never should have said these things. This kind of talk from a Pastor of mine would have me changing Churches immediately.

So God is watching professional sports? I wished God had stepped in and stopped big Nog's arm from being snapped in two from a nasty Kimura.

Tebow and the Pope both need to just GO AWAY and be forgotten about!
