    T-B0W’S HYPOCRITICAL DISPLAY OF HIS FAITH.
    Jesus call T-Bow’s “showy display of his faith as hypocritical and unacceptable and phony. Bible verses on his body, prayer in public, etc is sacrilegious and not approved by GOD. Faith is a personal relationship with your GOD and I doubt if T-Bow has that or know what that means. Wearing crosses and building with huge crosses on them. Bible slogans on your cars.

    Matt;6;5... “take good care not to practice your righteousness in front of men in order to be observed by them; otherwise you will have no reward with your father…when you pray you must not be as hypocrites; because they like to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the broad ways to be visible to men….they are having their reward in full.”

    I always find it interesting when people feel entitled to speak for an invisible deity.

    It's amusing to me to see a dope like LilOlLady criticizing a guy like Tebow by using some Biblical passage which doesn't even apply.

    Tebow isn't engaged in "practic[ing his] your righteousness in front of men in order to be observed by them] . . . ." He is instead merely willing to acknowledge God and the person he considers to be the Son of God.

    And no, he isn't thanking God or Jesus for a touchdown. He is acknowledging that without God, he is nothing. He is willing to be humble before God. And he is not ashamed to do so where others can see him and even mock him.

    The New International Version of the Bible, Acts 20:24.

    Or maybe it has to do with testifying ala: Psalm 145:10-12

    “All you have made will praise you, O Lord; your saints will extol you. They will tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might, so that all men may know of your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.”

    Hm. Imagine having a religious duty to "testify?"
    -- Acts 1:8, New International Version.

    Some folks may not care for it. But that doesn't mean that in a land premised in part on religious freedom, a guy like Tebow is not allowed to do it.

    Interesting that you think you can define his faith for him, and then turn around and say he is doing it incorrectly. Talk about hypocritical - you are displaying a particular knack for it.

    We are in shooting wars and a Presidential race that is probably the most important one in this country's history and folks are worried about a football player and his side show praying to God.

    Isn't judging someone against the rules as well.
    Maybe you could write a book called "Faith for Dummies" explaining how it is supposed to be done.

    I would guess more football fans care about his ability than his religious beliefs. His beliefs are his right; he should not be judged on how he displays them. SANS violence of course.

    If that were the case, the Jets would have never scheduled a freaking press conference to announce the acquisition of their new back-up QB.
