94 Million Google Hits!

This is what I was looking for, how many hits? 94 million.

www.marjieschaefer.com...


As his team approached the championship game, Tim felt a prompting from the Lord to change the verse to John 3:16, the verse Tebow calls ‘the essence of Christianity’.


Seems like a timely message.


It makes me wonder if that many people don’t really know what John 3:16 says, but even more significant to me, is the fact that 94 million people read God’s Word that day—and countless others who know John 3:16 by memory, reflected on it.

The astounding significance in all of this is the promise that we have in the Bible that God’s Word does not return void! An act as simple as an obedient college football player writing John 3:16 under his eyes on game day can result in 94 million people reading the Word of God. The Word of God which is living, active, energizing, and transformational!
Tim Tebow

Only God knows the eternal ramifications of those 94 million Google hits! One day Tim Tebow will know the eternal results of his obedience to that prompting—that still, small Voice.


An act as simple as an obedient college football player writing John 3:16 under his eyes on game day can result in 94 million people reading the Word of God.

this sums it up nicely,

I am not sure what r/atheism is, thanks for posting.


Let me google that for you. There you go.


Well thank you,

Is God Answering Tim Tebow’s Prayers?,

The proper Christian answer is .... God answers everyones prayers but not always in the way they are expecting (or how they want) As for Tebows games ... I don't think God is up there sitting on a cloud with a 'horse in the race' kind of thing .. but who knows.

Thanks for playing.

I have a history of starting unpopular topics.


No insult was intended, and my perspective of silliness is certainly not an indication I think the thread might be unpopular. I think it quite possible that the thread may be very popular indeed. Apparently, two of the top current google searches are Tebow, and John 3:16.

Usually the most popular threads are the ones where people vehemently disagree! You might have a front-pager on your hands, LOL!

Really, it is a legitimate question. "Is God Answering Tim Tebow's Prayers?"

I feel God answers all prayers, but rarely are we paying attention, and the majority of the time we wouldn't like the answer anyway.

Tebow had a few terrible games. Was God ignoring him then, but only paying attention during the wins? Of course not. God had a plan for everything, but we don't always understand, nor like it.

I don't know if God answers prayers of athletes to help them win.

I don't know if Teabow is God's QB.

But hey...it isn't bad press is it? Maybe God did answer his prayers, maybe he didn't, maybe he made sure the stats sent a message, maybe he didn't.

But in the end...the stats did send a message didn't it?

I think that is all that matters.



In other news, Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears must be atheists
Hey...Cutler did leave Denver for Chicago...maybe God is just a Broncos fan.

You forgot one........

OR, maybe Tebow made a deal with the Devil down in the Swamp!!

Maybe the rest is just a ruse! Maybe the bad games are when Tebow tries to reneg on his deal with the devil?

The unpopular Christian answer is...
"I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High" Psalms 82:6 (BTW the word translated gods there is Elohim)
"Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”’? John 10:34

There is a lot Christians ignore.

So say to this mountain move...

Intention

Will

We are gods...

Blasphemy?

Quantum physics say the same thing:

This takes them to the boundary of physics and philosophy: the observer-created reality.

An atom does not travel through space along a single path with 100 per cent certainty as a planet does. Rather, it has a large number of possible paths open to it, each with a particular probability. When the atom is “observed”, one and only one of the possibilities is actualised. Thus, reality is created by observation. Here the authors make their most controversial assertion: that the observer must be conscious. Consciousness, they believe, is intimately tied up with quantum processes.

I feel the need to say that I'd rather have kids looking up to Tim Tebow instead of Michael Vick.

No way!!

I think Vick is awesome..... then again I've never been a fan of dogs.

Personally i think it had more to do with Tebow throwing against a beat up and injured Steelers secondary than any influence of a mythological deity.

IMHO.

I think he very well might be, but there is no evidence that it had any influence on the game of football.

I won't worship a God who sees fit to 'answer' a multi-millionaire sports-star's 'prayers' yet lets people die of AIDS/hunger/cancer/murder every day, many of them children.

Yeah, he sure does work in mysterious ways.

How is Vick awesome? He is a gifted athlete, and I hear he is a nice guy, but he hasn't had any success as a Quarterback, and even less success as a responsible man. I might take Vick on my team, if I got a bargain price, and if he would play a utility role. No way he would ever be my starting QB.

I personally have no problem with dog-fighting, but to abuse and kill the dogs they way they were doing is abhorrent. I think dog-fighting can be done humanely, but they weren't doing it that way, they were doing it ghetto style, with no regard for the sport, the history, or the dogs.

No God that requires "worship" is worth worshipping anyway.

I would never "worship" a God, and that is why I don't go to any church. I believe in a higher being, or a pervading spirituality, but I don't believe in personifying it, or ascribing needs and wants to it, and therefore why would anyone worship it?

Also, nobody has any idea what the big picture might be. I've said it in many threads already, but I've heard God's voice, and I truly believe we are all living the lives we specifically asked for. From millionairre athletes to starving babies, there is some purpose to it, and we had some input at some point in the process.

Its NFL Football get that in your heads. Great comebacks happen in sports. If the Broncos lose in the next round then what? Is this thread going to be a farce as well as the whole GOD answering to Tim Tebow prayers? I don't know I just know that people love taking things out of context and try to say that its a phenomena. We will see next playoff game.

So God asked starving AIDs babies if spending their short, tragic time on this miserable rock as said starving AIDs babies would be cool with them?
