Bill Whittle: Tim Tebow is the best man I’ve ever seen

Bill Whittle, Scott Ott, and Steve Green discuss Tim Tebow and why him being so good (as in goodness) makes people so crazy. And yes, Bill Whittle really said what’s in the title about Tebow, and more.

Also, you should jump over to National Review and read a piece by Rich Lowry called What’s wrong with Tim Tebow?

    1. hey scoop is this guy(lsly39) a paid advertiser for you…he is getting on almost all your posts and pimping his wears………..

  1. for those interested there is free software with many Bible version and lots of historical writings… …i use it all the time and “IT IS FREE…”

      1. i have about 18 different translation i downloaded from them…i just love it…e-sword makes it so easy to get what you want and some of the real old translations are a hoot to compare with the new ones…

  2. Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
    Eph 2:8 for by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
    Eph 2:9 not of works, that no man should glory.
    Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God afore prepared that we should walk in them.

  3. I don’t remember where I saw this, but here it is: Souls in Hell are seated at a long table, laden with food and they are starving. They have long forks to reach the food, but can’t get it to their mouths.
    Souls in Heaven are seated at a table laden with food, and are holding the same long forks, but instead of trying to feed themselves, they feed each other.
    I love that.

  4. even some believers hate him because he is unafraid. he loves Jesus, and is not afraid of His Name. he is a good man. and many of us say we love Jesus, but we are afraid to mention His Name as if our best friend….and that is where the rub is: we are timid in our love for the Savior, and Lord, Jesus Christ. simple: evil vs good, dark vs light, demons vs Christ.

  5. I live in Steelers country. After their owner got in bed with Obama, the QB sexually assaulted two young women and the RB called the NFL “modern day slavery” and sided with Bin Laden, I jumped ship to NASCAR and have also become a fan of Tebow. They are both much better aligned with my values. Go Tony Stewart! Go Tebow! I’d rather support something positive because even if Tebow loses, I feel good about him. If it happens, winning is just gravy.

    We really need to be mindful of the things that we support.

  6. It’s interesting that non believers hate on him. What’s funny is his fellow players love him and love the fact that he loves HIM. The Lord. When you act as Christ did everyone sees Christ in you and that’s a beautiful thing to see. I’m a Cowboys fan through and through but I tell you what, I try to catch a Tebow game every chance I get. What a great role model.

  7. Tim Tebow is #1 a good Christian, a disciple of Christ and he’s not afraid to show his love for his Lord. He knows that his purpose in life is to glorify God and spread the Gospel, the Good News of Christ. Football is secondary. It is his occupation, one he clearly enjoys, and the source of his income which he considers provided by God. I truly wish I could be more like Tim as a disciple of Christ. Our society makes it extremely difficult as evidenced by how Tim Tebow is openly despised for his faith.

    One thing to keep in mind is that Tim Tebow is human. He is not Christ so he is not without sin and he, of all people, is fully aware of his sinful nature. We all have sinned and we continue to sin, even while serving the Lord. The difference is that we openly and honestly try to please the Lord by our actions. We always fall short because we live in this world.

    Unfortunately, the press will continue to scrutinize Tebow’s every move in order to find and expose his flaws. They will eventually succeed. Does that mean that Tim is any less of a man than what we see now? Certainly not! It means he is human. Who among you could ever live your life under such scrutiny and not be found guilty of something? He may even lose a game or two along the way.

    I praise God for saving Tim and giving him the courage to be the great example and role model he has become.

  8. I heard a story about Tim Tebow’s mother. When she was pregnant with him the doctors believed he would have some disease and have a very small chance of surviving the first few months and recommended to her that she abort the baby. Obviously she disagreed with the doctors and decided to have the child. Look what God has done with him. What was supposed to be a sick baby with little time to live grows into a big man who plays the most physical game in the spotlight and plays it well. If I can find a link to it or something I’ll post it.

    1. posted that before i watched the video….didn’t realize Bill referenced it at the end…but there you go.

  9. I liken the Tim Tebow phenomenon in the following way.

    Picture two men…. each in their own room. The ceiling is high the windows are tall and the sun outside shines brightly. One man lives a life of deceit, lies, conniving, dishonesty, and misery.

    While the other man, lives a life of integrity, character, faith, honesty, and virtue.

    The difference between each man can only be made evident with one factor. One has the shades to the windows wide open, while other has every shade shut.

    The truth about Tim Tebow is, his nature speaks to the heart of those who live a life of sin. He allows the sun to expose who he is and at the same time, indirectly exposes those who live a life that does not set an example of dignity.

      1. I’ve actually used that analogy to help raise my girls to give then a better perspective on life. It works!

        But thanks neighbor.

      1. Thanks. I truly believe this is the case with Tim Tebow. People who like to lives that are contrary to what “Religion” [or in my case the Bible] tells you to do, despise the “do-gooders” or those of faith. Because by default, we do live lives that present good, sound, moral and biblical principles, thus leaving those who decide otherwise appearing the lesser in society.

        So they bark in protest and say: “just because you read the bible you claim to make yourself better then us”. Well we don’t claim anything except our faith Christ. The reality is, as a Believer, every day is battle [and I mean a battle] to abide by the biblical principles we hold true.

        That is why the Lord tells us in John 15 many times over; “Abide in Me and I will abide in you”. Point being, stay near to him the best way you know how in the wretched world, and I believe Tim is doing that very thing, and by doing so in a very public fashion he is being blessed right before our eyes and the general public can not stand it.

        Tim is a great man of faith and a great spokesman for Christ. PERIOD!

  10. I hope Tebow decides to work for the cause of social conservatism at some point. The degradation of our culture and the murder of millions of innocent children is not something a true Christian can ignore, especially not one with a platform as powerful as Tebow’s.

        1. I realize that- and Christians are free to follow where the Lord wants them to be or not. I believe Tim knows God’s will for his life, and if God leads him in that direction Tim will willingly choose to go.

  11. Cutler vs Tebow would have been great but Tebow hasn’t faced the Bears defense yet. It will be tough for him but Bears with Cutler injured and the replacement QB makes bad decisions. Denver has pretty good D themselves. Interesting to see if he keeps it going next game.

      1. So if the Broncos don’t win the Super Bowl, God doesn’t like Tim Tebow, or what? This idea that God intervenes in who wins a football game is…interesting.

        1. I know. I, a believer, have always found that interesting. Knowing that there is chapel in every locker room of every sports team had to lead a thinking person to say What?!! definitely an interesting question.

          Still, God loves to show off somebody like Tim. You just watch. I brag ahead of time because I think after all these years I can see when the Lord is on a roll.

        2. nope

          but G-D has a purpose for TT’s life, and Tim has found it

          he will be scrutinised intensely when he wins

          he will be scrutinised intensely when he loses

          how he conducts himself in both spheres is what Divine Providence will be guiding, because that’s Whom Tim Tebow serves

        3. That’s not the idea at all from Tebow’s perspective. He’s just happy to give thanks for the opportunities provided to him by his mother’s belief in God. And thanks God every chance he gets for the opportunity to be the best he can be. Nothing wrong with it especially with that particular kid and his lifestory.

          Tebow has a lifestory that proves Jesus saves and speaks about it openly and proudly, that’s what the MSM and secularist don’t like.

  12. Shame makes people crazy. Tebow embarrasses the ungodly because, as a successful quarterback, he is what they want to be. Plus, as a genuinely humble and godly man, he is also what they know they ought to be.

    During the Trifecta discussion, I was reminded of Sarah Palin. She embarrasses Statist Feminazis because she has what they want in an admirable family, consisting of many children and a handsome, successful husband, combined with an admirable career, not merely in commerce or industry, but even in political leadership. But on top of that, Palin is a devout Christian so committed to her beliefs that she took political risks by rooting out corruption in her own political party and made a personal sacrifice for the sake of her youngest son’s very life. Palin is what Feministas want to be and what they know they ought to be.

    Tebow and Palin, simply by being who they are, bring shame to those who have similar aspirations, but are motivated only by selfishness.

      1. Oh, thank you. I just love Robin of Berkeley’s stuff. Can hardly wait to read this, perhaps again.

    1. In fact, Jesus rebuked those who put on a pretentious display of devotion for the sole purpose of self aggrandizement.
      Today, no one who seeks to enhance his own reputation among men would do as Tebow does.

      1. Ray Lewis does all the time yet no sportwriters ever mention him and his belief/display in/of Jesus love. Strange how that works.

      2. Great point!! IN fact, they would probably invest in an over-sized Bible and get a big cross put on it that would really show and then carry that with them on Sundays or whenever the cameras were close.

          1. It has been since the sixties right? America has been and is being torn down in every category that I can think of.

            But in the still silence, when you look and listen to something other than the noise. You might notice this. That old metaphoric pendulum, has in so may ways, reached it’s leftward, upward zenith, to a huge majority of folks, and it’s momentum is now headed in the other direction.

            Gravity, momentum, physics, the limits of people’s frustrations, the urge to do something, say something, change something, the desire to revisit the America that was, the rising of that America from spiritual ashes, the reawakening of her much too delayed slumber, the sound of morality’s alarm clock, another greatest generation, comprised of homeschooled kids, grown kids, schooled before the sixties and seventies stink started spoiling everything, are on the fields of battle and are forming up ranks. They’ve reached their own personal threshholds of frustration.

            Christianity is on a march again. It is gathering like a spiritual storm. The barometer doesn’t know what to make of it…societal clouds are shifting like the San Andreas! C’mon, let’s go! This is going to be great! I have a feeling in my soul that rattles my bones! The Holy Spirit is tapping me and you on the shoulder and filling us with that powerful stuff that only He has! Do you recognize it? If not, take another look!

            Tim! Hold a lantern. There are millions more out here, held by sick and tired tenants. Together we’ll create more candlepower than this world has ever known. We’ll cause light to shine in the darkness. We’ll introduce souls to that which souls need for survival. Indeed, that peculiar, all-powerful something that looks so good on a country.

            Am I dreaming? Maybe. I just have a feeling.

            1. Thanks for this comment, great summation of all that’s happening, you hit the nail on the head with eloquence.

              1. I e-mailed this to my older brother this morning and he thought it was “overwritten…too much prose to weed through to get to the meat”. He might be right 🙁

                But…who cares? “I gotta be me.” Thanks ABC, PAWatcher and Blackbird 🙂

    2. There is a big difference between self exaultation which is what is talked about and Praising God for his hand on your life and quick ,quiet prayers. We are supposed to be reflections of God with our life’s centered around Him. If you knew Him like So many do, you would look for opportunities to praise Him to. Jesus is awsome!

    3. You are confusing “chest pounding” – Look at me, I’m so great! I gave millions to poor schoolgirls in Africa!! (ala Oprah, Madonna, Bill Gates) – with someone saying “Thank you, Lord.”

  13. Tebow is just giving thanks to a greater power and no one wants him to do it ? And yet the NFL is allowing Madonna to do the superbowl halftime show ? Agreed, people should be more earnest ! Without our moral compass, we are lost !

    1. I know. It’s like an upside-down world, isn’t it? just like the Bible says it will be. Be not conformed….

  14. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
    And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
    For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
    John 3:18-20

    Tebow is a great person behind the talent. He’s got convictions which he’s not afraid of sticking by no matter what, he’s humble in his faith, and he’s unwavering in his morals, and people don’t know what to make of that- especially coming from a “star”.

    “The devil abhors light and truth because these remove the ground of his working.”
    Watchman Nee

  15. Rush said this yesterday:

    “There is a psychology behind that, and the psychology is rooted in inferiority. We don’t want anybody to be better than we are so that we don’t have to deal with how bad we are.”

    This is so true.

    1. I believe that the duel between Christianity and atheism is the most important in the world. I further believe that the struggle between individualism and collectivism is the same struggle reproduced on another level. -William F. Buckley

      The Demonizing of Conservatives

      1. Though very conservative, I am not a fan of WB, and this is the first intelligent thing I have heard him say.

  16. When Bill Whittle talks, you should listen. Even if you disagree with him, he’ll make you think hard about why.

    1. Disagree with Bill Whittle?! just kidding, but this did remind me of E.F. Hutton — be quiet and listen.

  17. I was just hoping you’d put some football on the site Scoop! Thanks for readin’ my mind. Lovin’ how the Lord continues to bless Tebow with continued gifts and talent. May we all be so bold in our faith!

  18. Keep it going! Watching Tebow and the Broncos are more fun than I’ve had in a long time with the NFL.
