Twitter Censors Tim Tebow’s Inspirational Bible Video


Reported By Johnathan Jones | Published July 27, 2020 at 2:15pm

Twitter censored an inspirational post by former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow asking Christians to hold onto their faith during times of personal tribulation. The former Heisman Trophy winner tweeted a simple message Tuesday: Keep your faith intact, and remember that all of the Bible’s messengers struggled.

“This could be your time. That breakthrough could be tomorrow, or it could be next year. But, you have the opportunity to turn however you’re being tested into a testimony. So many heroes were wounded deeply before they were used greatly!” he wrote, alongside a video message.

But Tebow’s tweet was censored by Twitter.

“The following media includes potentially sensitive content,” read a warning from the social media giant that covered the video portion of his post.

The Western Journal reached out to Twitter for comment about why the video post was labeled with a warning but did not immediately receive a response. It’s difficult to discern what anyone could find “sensitive” about the content in Tebow’s video.

In the post, Tebow, breathing heavily after an apparent workout, called on Christians to turn to God during times of difficulty.

“Bible believers, when we look at the Bible, and we see a lot of the heroes, a lot of times they truly were wounded deeply before they were ever used greatly,” he said.

“So maybe you’re going through a time in your life where you feel like you’ve just been wounded greatly. It hasn’t been your year, hasn’t been your day — you just don’t feel like this is your time,” Tebow continued.

“But this could be your time for learning. This could be your time for growing. This could be your time for adapting. This could be the time that is a test for you, but tomorrow it gets to turn into a testimony,” he said.

“Because you never know what God is doing with your life. You never know what he is preparing you for. So many times in the Bible, when we look at the heroes, there were times in their life where if they stopped, if they quit, if they said, ‘No, God, I’ve had enough,’ then they would have missed out on the most impactful, most influential times of their life,” the former Florida Gator said.

Tebow then appealed to those who might be struggling.

“Maybe that is the next step for you. Maybe that is tomorrow. Maybe that is next week, maybe that is next year,” he said. “But when we quit, we will never know what we missed out on. We will never know what’s in store for us.

“Because maybe that breakthrough is coming tomorrow. Maybe it’s next year. Maybe you have a little bit more time going through a hard time in your life.

“But I can tell you this: We get to trust an unknown future to a known God, because we know how much he loves us. We know what he did for us in sending his son. He gave his best for us. …

“When we remember that, then we can have trust in the character of our God, because we know how much he loves us. That’s how we get through the tough times.

Tebow concluded his video message by saying, “Right where you’re at, whatever you’re doing, whatever you’re going through, he loves you. You were enough for his son to die on the cross, that’s how much you’re loved. Hold onto that in your time of need.”

Tim Tebow Finds a Higher Calling in Pro-Life Causes Rather than Sports Trophies


Posted by | February 24, 2020

NRL News Today reported on Kansans for Life annual Valentine’s Day banquet held earlier this month. Nearly 1,200 people were in attendance at this event. The theme of this event was LIV-ing in victory, which referred to Super Bowl LIV. Lamar Hunt, Jr., one of the owners of the Super Bowl Champs, the Kansas City Chiefs, was the Master of Ceremonies for the event. In his opening remarks, he said:

I do not think it is a cliché to say we are in a life and death battle for the truth and authentic dignity of the human person. We need your full attention. You need to drop what you’re doing and join us, and this can be in so many ways: prayer, assistance to those in need, emails, phone calls, in-person meetings. Get educated about what we’re fighting about here. Really listen in and tune in.

Then Hunt said, “Please do something about it. Pray. Take action. If you don’t know what to do, ask somebody. Place this as a major priority in your life.”

Hunt concluded by saying that he often heard the phrase “Live in victory” from another resident at the retirement home where he visits his mother.

The main highlight of that evening was the keynote speech by Tim Tebow, former quarterback for the Denver Broncos.

“It is such an honor to be here,” Tebow said as he thanked the other speakers coming before him for their work to protect the unborn. Tebow praised Hunt for “having courage in the face of a lot of other people who don’t have it and for your willingness to be up here and support this organization.”

“It really does mean a lot more than winning the Super Bowl,” Tebow remarked. He continued, “One day, when you look back and people are talking about you and they say Oh my gosh what are you going to be known for? Are you going to say Super Bowl, or we saved a lot of babies?”

Tebow asserted that Kansans for Life is not a philanthropy.

It’s a rescue mission. You know why we call it a rescue mission? Because when we say that, it puts a timeline on it.
When’s the last time you heard a rescue mission taking place in a month or a few years. No, a rescue mission means now. It gives you a sense of urgency. It says we have to go not because it’s our time, but because it’s their time. … I have to live a sense of urgency because while I might have time, they don’t.

Later, Tebow turned toward Hunt and Chiefs punter, Dustin Colquitt, who was also attending the event, he told them it was “awesome they won the Super Bowl.”

“It’s amazing. What an accomplishment! But you know the best part of that accomplishment is that it gets you an even bigger platform.” That platform, Tebow declared, can be used to support the pro-life movement.

“You see, my mom 32 years ago had doctors tell her she needed to abort me because if she didn’t, it was going to cost her life. And they didn’t even believe that I was a baby. They thought I was a tumor,” Tebow said.

Tebow jokingly recounted that as the baby of a family of 5 siblings, he was called “Timmy the tumor” by his siblings.

On a more serious note, Tebow said, “to make a long story short, when I was born, they found out the placenta wasn’t actually attached. So, the doctor looked at my mom after 37 years of being a doctor and said, ‘This is the biggest miracle I’ve ever seen because I’m not sure how he’s alive.’ … I’m so grateful that my mom trusted God with my life and her life.”

In 1986, Tebow’s father, Robert, begged the Lord to give him one more child. His father said, “I prayed for a preacher and got a quarterback.”

Tebow finished the event by stating that, “What you’re doing here matters. You’re fighting for life. You’re fighting for people that can’t fight for themselves. And my question to you is: Are you willing to stand up in the face of persecution, in the face of adversity, in the face of criticism, when other people are going to say it’s not worth it, when other people won’t stand beside you? Maybe not everybody is going to be with you. Will you stand up for what’s right?”

The quarterback later spoke about the praise he received from the stadium, in classic Tebow style:

“It’s very humbling, a blessing. I appreciated it.”

Though there were preseason doubts that the Heisman winner and former first-round pick would even make the team, the welcome he received at Lincoln Financial Field proves that there are plenty of fans who still want to see Tebow suit up.

While Domestic Abuse Thugs Mar NFL, Tim Tebow Waits For Second Chance

Tim Tebow — I’m Still Training For The NFL!!!
Tim Tebow refuses to let his NFL dream die — telling TMZ Sports he’s back in L.A. to continue his training … whether he’s on a team or not. The 26-year-old hasn’t played a single down since 2012 … during a failed experiment with the New York Jets. Over the past year, we’ve seen him working out all over Los Angeles … mostly focusing on his throwing motion. Over the past year, we’ve seen him working out all over Los Angeles … mostly focusing on his throwing motion. And last night, while heading into Boa Steakhouse — Tebow made it seem like he’s still determined to make his NFL return … even if the odds are stacked against him.
Roger Goodell’s NFL is coming apart at the seams. America’s most popular league has been deteriorating for years under Goodell thanks to his ridiculous rule changes, obsession with London, his force feeding of horrendous Thursday Night games, and his erratic way of dealing with players behaving badly. That’s just the short list. Goodell is squeezing the love out of our game and his grip is as tight as one of his creepy hugs on Draft Night.
The recent domestic abuse charges against several players have finally put Goodell’s bumbling tenure as commish under the microscope. Horrific allegations have surfaced regarding multiple players. They are superstars, mid-level guys, and reserves. Their common thread is the mistreatment of others. Others being small children and women. Not unlike many of the victims of these thugs, the NFL has a black eye. Kind of makes you yearn for the days of Tim Tebow.

The former Broncos and Jets signal caller is still waiting for the phone to ring. The Florida Gators legend is doing a sensational job hosting on the SEC Network, but it’s no secret that the southpaw wants to be playing the game he loves, not talking about it. Sadly, after being mishandled grossly in New York, Tebow has not had another regular-season opportunity with an NFL club.

Arguably one of the greatest college players ever, Tebow also owns a winning record as an NFL starter. His dramatic comeback wins include a playoff victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers when he was with the Broncos. All of that is irrelevant in today’s NFL, though. Tebow is blackballed because of his love of Jesus Christ, as Michael Silver reported. Criminals get multiple chances to return. Women beaters, child abusers, perverts, drunk drivers, and even a ruthless dog killer currently don NFL jerseys each Sunday. Even someone convicted of manslaughter got to come back. While that seems to be OK with the NFL, Tebow is seen as a distraction.cp 11

The all-out blitz against Tebow and his character has been hard to watch. Players and media alike have been relentless. They’ve bashed Tebow for being a Christian. That’s about as sick as the behavior of those players making headlines for all the wrong reasons.

While we’ve heard cockamamie defenses of Adrian Peterson’s “discipline” of his children and theories that Ray Rice’s wife “provoked” the running back, Tebow was ripped for simply loving the Lord.

ESPN’s Merril Hoge, a habitual Tebow basher, called Tebow “phony as a three-dollar bill.” That’s only one example on a laundry list of jealous, visceral remarks from the washed-up, boring broadcaster Hoge.

Writers have pleaded with Tebow to dial back his love for his Savior. Columnist Joel Mathis wrote, “most of us have learned to live with boundaries – to avoid thrusting our religion into arenas where it is unexpected or unwelcome. If you make a big sale at work, for example, you’re unlikely to bend on knee in front of co-workers and customers to start giving thanks to God.” Wouldn’t that be awful.

Far-left former NFL underachiever Jake Plummer had even harsher criticism of Tebow. “I wish he’d just shut up after a game and go hug his teammates,” said the former quarterback.

Jealous much?

An even less accomplished quarterback than Plummer also piled on. Brady Quinn was a teammate of Tebow’s in Denver and didn’t like being FreeSpeech1-300x204behind Tebow on the depth chart. So like Plummer, he took his shots. In a GQ magazine interview, Quinn contended Tebow was awarded playing time for non-football reasons. “I felt like the fans had a lot to do with that,” said Quinn. “Just ’cause they were chanting his name. There was a big calling for him. No, I didn’t have any billboards. That would have been nice.”

Quinn belittled Tebow’s string of last-minute comebacks that propelled the Broncos into the playoffs, chalking them up to luck. He even went as far as to question Tebow’s character. “If you look at it as a whole, there’s a lot of things that just don’t seem very humble to me,” Quinn said. “When I get that opportunity, I’ll continue to lead not necessarily by trying to get in front of the camera and praying but by praying with my teammates, you know?”

No, we don’t know.

Sounds like sour grapes from a guy who got passed over for playing time. To question Tebow’s motives when it comes to his faith is simply off base. Even those who don’t like Tebow as a signal caller can’t question his selflessness. If they do, their credibility is gone.

When he’s not covering college ball, Tebow continues to quietly lift the spirits of those who need it most. Through his incredible foundation, Tebow meets with sick children each and every week. Often no one hears about it. He does it because it’s the right thing to do. The NFL employs men who beat their own toddlers to a pulp. In the meantime,Tebow is going out of his way to bring some joy to children he’s never met before.

While the Plummers and Quinns of the world certainly come across as envious whiners, at least they put their names to their comments. Multiple players with the Jets and Broncos took shots at Tebow anonymously. That’s pure cowardice. One unnamed Jets said Tebow was “terrible.” Tebow’s response? Nothing but good will and prayers. Tebow keeps smiling. He’s living not for the NFL or praise from players and reporters. He’s living for God.

While still with the Eagles, DeSean Jackson told TMZ that he would pick his two-year-old son over Tebow. Why even make a comment like this? It’s hateful. Even if you don’t appreciate Tebow’s quarterbacking, are these barbs necessary? Tebow would never act so low. As far as Jackson’s two-year old… whether he picks him over Tebow or not, one thing’s for sure. He could leave his son with Tebow without worry. The same can’t be said about some others. Tebow visits young children in hospitals. Some current NFLers put them there.

The lamestream media and certain players have had a weird obsession with Tebow. While with the Jets Tebow played less than ten plays per game, yet he was slammed on shows like “Good Morning America” for his lack of production. Talking head Josh Elliott, who is now at NBC, used mocking religious imagery and snarkily told viewers that Tebow was “once hailed as a savior” before his “fall from grace.” Tebow has never been hailed as a savior. Tebow worships the Savior. He was misused by Rex Ryan and company. He never fell from anything. His purpose and passion is as strong as ever.

And while guys like Terrell Suggs make wisecracks saying Tebow needed “God to bail him out,” Tebow takes the high road. God has bailed him out. Tebow is on the road to salvation. He’d also be on the road to the NFL if a team would only see what’s right in front of them.

Tim Tebow is a gamer. He’s a winner. He brings passion and toughness to an offense. His running game is formidable in a league that is adopting more read-option schemes. And though certain players are judged on wins and losses but with Tebow it’s “mechanics” or “arm angle” even if his way works. Perhaps it’s his Christianity they’re really against.

Not every football man is anti-Tebow. Some are silent on the issue of his chances for an NFL comeback. That may be even more off putting than those who wrongly assess Tebow’s talent.

Few in the game have been outspoken supporters of Tebow. Those who have, however, have something in common. They are proven winners. Urban Meyer, Mike Ditka, and Jon Gruden have all expressed support for Tebow. All three are mystified as to why he isn’t in the league. All three have won championships. These winners know another winner when they see one. Tebow is blackballed.

Perhaps others should take a cue from Meyer, Ditka, and Gruden. It’s bad enough to have secular non-believers go after Tebow but when men of faith don’t defend him it’s inexcusable. Kurt Warner, a Christian, once told the Washington Post that Tebow should “put down the boldness in regards to the words and keep living the way you’re living.”

Really, Kurt? Mark 16:15 tells us “And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.’” I would assume those creatures would include Rams, Cardinals, Broncos and the like.

Even Chris Kluwe knows something is off about Tebow not being on a roster. The left-wing former Vikings punter and gay rights activist hits it on the head. Speaking on the Olbermann show, Kluwe said, “as much as we are polar opposites on the things we stand for, Tebow is the exact same way. There are backup quarterbacks in the NFL right now that Tebow is certainly better than–he could fill a role with a team. But because he brings this other stuff with him, just like I bring my other stuff with me, teams look at it like, ‘We don’t want it. We don’t want players speaking out. We don’t want players doing anything other than football.'”

Right now the NFL has players doing other stuff. They’re beating kids and women. But Tebow was a distraction? All that praying was too hard to deal with but those preying on the weak are worthy rehabilitation projects in the view of the NFL.

Just look at Tebow’s former division. Chase Daniel, Aaron Murray, Brock Osweiler, Matt McGloin, and Kellen Clemens are all quarterbacks on active rosters. Tebow is better than all of these reserves. Heck, he’s better than some NFL starters. But of the dozens of quarterbacks in the NFL you don’t need a long list to prove Tebow should be there. You just need one name: Charlie Whitehurst. Case closed.

Tim Tebow ‘s time in the NFL was short. Many remember it not for the thrills he provided on the field but for those who didn’t like his joyful expression of love toward Christ. That’s unfortunate. Tebow is a good man who played hard each and every snap. He is intelligent and skilled. He should be on a roster now.

So while Roger Goodell and the NFL must now deal with the disturbing accusations against Adrian Peterson, Jonathan Dwyer and others and the fallout from Ray Rice’s haymaker to his then-fiancee’s skull, we can remember a time not too long ago when the big “distraction” was a hard-working winner named Tebow, who just happens to love Jesus Christ. Tebow could take a page from those George W. Bush bumper stickers and billboards. He should ask the NFL, “Miss me yet?” They certainly should.

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Sports/2014/05/11/NFL-Fans-Blast-Media-for-Hailing-Sam-s-Courage-Criticizing-Tebow-for-Embracing-Christian-Faith

When the mainstream media universally hailed Michael Sam for being the first openly gay player to be drafted for his courage, football fans and observers immediately noted on Twitter how Sam was praised as much as Tim Tebow was criticized for openly embracing his Christian faith.People are so happy for Michael Sam and were so hateful to Tim Tebow. I wonder why?
