How many of you ever heard of Yahoo before ? Good. Now all you have to do is go to that page and browse through their news of the day. There is an interesting story about how Tim Tebow is being confronted by the social criticism of Atheists.
Let's just say that they are scared to death of this Man, because he is a public world renowed figure, who is shedding some light on God and Christianity. Say what you will, but this is part of the revolution that is taking place around the world as we speak and for 2012. You know the deal. Freedom of religion should not be regulated. And all Tim Tebow has done, is made our lives so much easier and appreciated. Too bad this does not go over well with you. What do you think ?

I find the whole situation ridiculously amusing.

God finds the time to help Tim Tebow win that game, yet those African's are still starving. Priorities much?

Actually, if you got your head out of the sand, you would realize that he has sent a TON of aid, in the form of Christian organizations, and charities.

If he has the power to intervene in a game of football, why doesn't he have the power to magic up bowls of rice? Didn't he feed a thousand or so people with five of the things?

Hmmm...........It doesn't.

But is god's existence in your eyes dependent on the scripture? Or do you support a more general perception of god.....?

Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty." - John 6:35

I'm willing to bet all those African's are reasonably hungry and thirsty.

And while we're at it, Exodus 16:4-8.

*Sigh* It's clearly not to be taken literally. He was saying, that you will never yearn for more inside, spiritually. Also, is everyone in Africa a Christian? No. Therefore, even if it was meant to be taken literally, it wouldn't apply.

And while we're at it, Exodus 16:4-8.

How does that prove that God says he will feed the starving?

Because a yearning to be content spiritually clearing takes precedence over rampant starvation.

Also, is everyone in Africa a Christian? No. Therefore, even if it was meant to be taken literally, it wouldn't apply.

Now that's ridiculous. Are you saying that because some people on the continent aren't Christians, god wouldn't feed any of them?

I'm willing to bet all those African's are reasonably hungry and thirsty.

And while we're at it, Exodus 16:4-8.

It proves that god apparently has the capability to. Yet you want to claim that god would rather help Tim Tebow win a game of football than save millions of his followers from an agonizing death. In what abhorrent scenario can you then claim that god is all-loving.

So. Let me get this right, God is quite happy to let hundreds and thousands of people die in the Haiti Earthquake, the Japanese Tsunami, and the Boxing Day Tsunami.... But the moment some high end athlete Douche decides to pray over something as metaphysically banal as a football game, God drops everything to help out.

Maybe the pain and suffering in this world is all caused because God is too busy answering all the prayers of people wanting new bikes to stop natural disasters.

And while we're at it, Exodus 16:4-8.

How does that prove that God says he will feed the starving?

So. Let me get this right, God is quite happy to let hundreds and thousands of people die in the Haiti Earthquake, the Japanese Tsunami, and the Boxing Day Tsunami.... But the moment some high end athlete Douche decides to pray over something as metaphysically banal as a football game, God drops everything to help out.

Maybe the pain and suffering in this world is all caused because God is too busy answering all the prayers of people wanting new bikes to stop natural disasters.

Do you have proof that Tebow is helped by God?

The fact that he is earning significant money asking 'how shall I throw this pigskin' rather than earning minimum wage asking 'do you want fries with that?' is proof enough for me...

God finds the time to help Tim Tebow win that game, yet those African's are still starving. Priorities much?

Actually, if you got your head out of the sand, you would realize that he has sent a TON of aid, in the form of Christian organizations, and charities.

God: I will let my Christian followers help them; I am too busy myself in spite of my all-powerful state of existence.......

*Sigh*

First off, where in the bible dos it say God will help the starving?

John 6:35?

Is that being sarcastic?

Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty." - John 6:35


*Sigh* It's clearly not to be taken literally. He was saying, that you will never yearn for more inside, spiritually. Also, is everyone in Africa a Christian? No. Therefore, even if it was meant to be taken literally, it wouldn't apply.

I'm willing to bet all those African's are reasonably hungry and thirsty.

And while we're at it, Exodus 16:4-8.

If he has the power to intervene in a game of football, why doesn't he have the power to magic up bowls of rice? Didn't he feed a thousand or so people with five of the things?

God does not intervene, God gives Tebow the leadership confidence and charisma to lead the team to victory. He doesn't intervene like you think.

Maybe god could give someone the leadership and charisma to come up with a viable solution to all that starvation then?

Well, if he has, the guy isn't doing a very good job of it. Besides, if he really cared, he would just magic it up like he did in Exodus.

Who am I to question a vengeful, cruel, malevolent and most likely imaginary dictator? I would think I'm a decent human being.
