Can't Get Enough/Rid of Tim Tebow!
I think I'm the only Giants fan in Belvidere, Illinois.
I've been one since finishing second in a Punt, Pass, and Kick contest on a snowy day in Nanticoke, Pennsylvania about 52 years ago.
First place got tickets to something cool and I got an "official" Giants helmet.
Please, no comments about helmets (read pages 96ff. in I Just Wanna Ride for more on that).
Anyway, I'm a Giants fan.
While I still think the Packers will win the second of three consecutive Super Bowls, I'm really trying to keep my big mouth shut about being a Giants fan because I'm here on the Illinois/Wisconsin border in a church filled with equal numbers of Bears and Packers fans.
Job security comes to mind.
I hear an echo from the past: "EEEEEEEElllllllliiiiiii's Coming!"
I wanna get back to TT.
Man, he pumps some up and P-O's lots more.
It's a Matthew 5:10-12; 10:17ff. thing.
Luke's version via Peterson: "Count yourself blessed every time someone cuts you down or throws you out, every time someone smears or blackens your name to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and that that person is uncomfortable" (6:22-23).
Talking to people about TT is like exposing the emperor's nakedness.
One dude wrote to us with an insult after quoting Matthew 6:5 to prooftext his disdain; failing, naturally, to mention the contextual reality of Matthew 5:13-16, Romans 10:9, Titus 1:16, and so on.
Oh, how odd to see "Christians" smearing Christians to justify their, uh, kinda, uh, "Christianity."
Hello, Romans 1:16-17!
There's a lot about that in the book.
Yeah, that one too!
It does happen.
That's why the little book trying to esteem the big book - hope you get that and buy some - spends so much time differentiating authentics from posers.
But, again, you gotta read the book(s).
Tony, part of the weekly team on the radio version of KD via www.bnnsradio.com, brought in some stuff for the Tuesday show (click on www.bnnsradio.com and then click on the archive for the 1/10 show and then go to www.sidestandup.com and click on last night's show for even more stuff about authentics/posers) that will pump and P-O as, uh, uh, uh,....
Though I'm not into numbers except for turning 60 in a few weeks, he noted some coincidental/providential/? numbers related to TT.
The NFL bans eye-black messages; but TT wore John 3:16 on his eye black for the 2009 BCS Championship game.
He often quotes it.
Stats from Sunday are staggering/coincidental/providential/?/thought-provoking.
He had 316 yards passing.
He averaged 31.6 yards per pass.
The television rating for the final quarter-hour of the Broncos-Steelers game was 31.6.
It's your choice.
Try, uh, thinking.
Did you expect a song from Madonna?
No way Madonna goes with football.
Blessings and Love!
