Tim Tebow - #3172 - Is Christian Football Star Tim Tebow Really Guilty of 'Blasphemy'? - The Blaze

Charging blasphemy, which is “the crime of assuming to oneself the rights or qualities of God,” is no small accusation. Yet, it’s exactly the charge being thrown at Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. Tebow, an unabashed evangelical Christian, has made his faith known for years. Thus, it was no surprise that, with his recent NFL challenges in mind (he’s been named the backup for Kyle Orton), the 24-year-old told Denver Post columnist Woody Paige the following: “I’m relying as always on my faith.This statement, in itself, shows that the famed football player believes strongly in his faith. But, it was this very comment that sent CBS News’ Gregg Doyel into a tizzy. In a piece published earlier this month, Doyel targeted Tebow’s aforementioned stance on faith and tied it to unrealistic expectations he believes the young player has....... He went on to quip, “He’ll make it in this league — for the Bible tells him so.” While this seems like negative commentary on Christianity, Doyel says it’s something very different. In his article, he explains that he’s not against religion, nor is he against Tebow’s belief system. He even admits to, himself, being a churchgoer and an admitted sinner.  Read more.......  AW:  I personally love Tim Tebow, I have read many articles  about him, his ministry with children throughout the years with his family and independently.  God certainly has had his hand on him from the beginning, and what a role model throughout high school and college.  Why do so many people criticize what they just can't understand, please pray for him as he continues his career with Denver.
