According to Gary Kamiya over at Salon.com, Tebow will go down to defeat to the New England Patriots, never mind that Tebow threw for 316 yards (31.6 yards per pass) against the Steelers, which of course God arranged on account of John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall have everlasting life."
You have to admit that 31.6 yards per pass is sort of unusual...
So anyway, Kamiya predicts that NEW ENGLAND, not Denver, will win, 31-17. And here's my reply to that, which I would have posted on Salon.com except they wanted money first before they would let me comment (Hey, Kos, don't be getting any ideas):
I don't have a problem with Tebow or God. I have a problem with "Christians" who think God is so superficial and callous as to guide Tebow to touchdowns while simultaneously saying "NO!" to the prayers of parents whose precious child is dying of cancer. This use of God as a talisman is not Christian. I would say it's pagan, but that would be unfair to pagans. It's more like voodoo. Now watch me get flamed by the Voodooist Kossacks.
On the other hand...
Let's say Kamiya's prediction is true. Patriots 31 Broncos 17
There are -ahem- a few scriptures that speak to this from the perspective of the defeated Broncos (the parenthetical comments are from the ZedMont Heretical Edition):
Deuteronomy 31:17 "Then my anger will be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them and hide my face from them, and they will be devoured; and many evils and troubles will come upon them, so that they will say in that day, 'Have not these evils come upon us because our God is not among us?"
Of course, Tebow has Deuteronomy 31:17 committed to memory, so he will undoubtedly attempt to preempt it by praying:
Psalm 31:17 Let me not be put to shame, O Lord, for I call on thee; let the wicked (Patriots) be put to shame, let them be dumfounded to Sheol (the Patriot press conference if they lose)."
But, of course, if Kamiya is right and the Broncos lose, all is not lost, tomorrow's another day or something like that says Scarlett O'Hara, and there's always next year, as God informs Tebow in:
Jeremiah 31:17 "There is hope for your future, says the Lord, and your children shall come home to their own country (till training camp next year)."
So, you see, those scriptures are very versatile, like the Leatherman pocketknife/tool/thingie. Wait long enough, and one will eventually come true, one way or the other about something or other sooner or later or maybe not.
