Tim Tebow's God is a Monster

"It's not luck. Luck isn't winning 6 games in a row. It's favor. God's favor."  
—Wayne Hanson of Summit Church in Colorado

It's not really worth spending too much time on this, but a few things need to be said.

And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others.” Matthew 6:5

Any deity, should it exist, that actively involves itself in a sporting event—and not, say, starving children anywhere—in order to bring "glory" upon their followers or itself is not worthy of worship. It would be a narcissistic, sociopathic,  immoral, monster.

This is all moot of course. There is no monster God that helps Tebow win to give glory to Jesus.

There is only the Denver Broncos defense.

And Marion Barber III.

Has Barber come out and blamed jesus for the fumble yet? I keep waiting for that (like Steve Johnson tweeted last year after a dropped pass: "I PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!! AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME!!!!!")

i haven't watched any games this season (even tho I hear my Niner's are good this season, maybe playoffs) so i don't know what Barber did. Even Kurt Warner said something like win or lose you can't be a good Christian and say god allowed us to win or lose. I'm a timmy basher, but heck man...he's been winning and seems like a great guy (except that over the top Christian thingy), and he does help my peeps in the Philippines (although he probably indoctrinates them with his evangelical version of God). OK, I'm blabbing, i will end with...Go Niner's.

Just to update this: Tebow played lights out in the Wild Card game and helped beat the Steelers fair and square. I will certainly give him the respect he deserves for that.

However, it STILL does not mean a deity would or should care about sports. If it did it would not be worthy of worship, except of course, out of fear.
