Tim Tebow - #3439 - How Did Tim Tebow Respond to Critic Telling Him to Tone Down Jesus Talk? - The Blaze (2) VIDEO: Tim Tebow Announces the CURE Hospital (3) Tim Tebow Responds to Jack Plummer's Comments on His Faith - The Huddle

AW: I am so Thankful for Athletes and Men of Faith like Tim Tebow. What a role model to young boys and all youth, and especially to those who come in contact with him and other athletes like him. We need to pray for his continued witness in the NFL and all who are watching. I have used videos of his mission work in the Philippines with children in teaching our youth at church, and continue to be blessed by all that he does.

How Did Tim Tebow Respond to Critic Telling Him to Tone Down Jesus Talk? - The Blaze - Tim Tebow has truly become a phenomenon as the popular, but unconventional, NFL quarterback continues to find himself at the center of discussions about sports, religion and politics. Tebow’s play for the Denver Broncos has drawn polarizing opinions from football analysts. Additionally, there has also been a great deal of criticism over Tebow’s Christian views. ESPN analyst Skip Bayless, an equally polarizing figure among football fans, often supports Tebow and spoke with him on ESPN Tuesday. As the phone interview progressed, Bayless asked Tebow if he was aware of recent comments made by former Bronco quaterback Jake Plummer. Plummer told a Phoenix radio station yesterday that he respects Tebow’s play, but said of the young quarterback’s religious beliefs: “I think that when he accepts the fact that we know that he loves Jesus Christ, then I think I’ll like him a little better. I don’t hate him because of that, I just would rather not have to hear that every single time he takes a good snap or makes a good handoff.”.........
Tim:  Well, first I’d say, thank you for the compliment of calling me a winner and then I‘d also say if you’re married and you’re a [husband] is it good enough to only say you love her on the day you get married or should you tell her every single day when you wake up and have an opportunity? And that’s how I feel about my relationship with Jesus Christ. It is the most important thing in my life so anytime I get an opportunity to tell him that I love him or give him an opportunity to shout him out on national TV, I’m gonna take that opportunity. So I look at that as a relationship that I have with him that I want to give him honor and glory anytime I have the opportunity and then right after I give him honor and glory, then I want to try and give my teammates honor and glory and that’s how it works because Christ comes first in my life. Then my family, and then my teammates......... “I want to be a great role model and be what Danny Wuerffel was to me and I want to be someone who makes difference. Because at the end of the day if all we’re doing is winning and losing football games and scoring touchdowns, then we really haven’t done a lot in our lives.  But if we’re in the business of encouraging people, bring faith, hope and love to those on their darkest hour of need as the mission statement of my foundation reads, then we’re really doing something successful with our lives. So I’m going to take the platform that football has given me and try to give back, make a difference and make this world a better place.”  Read more........
