Tim Tebow – Born a Preacher

The Tim Tebow Story–

More than 24 years ago, Pam and her husband Bob were serving as missionaries in the Philippines and praying for a fifth child. Pam contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in contaminated food or drink. She went into a coma and was treated with strong antibiotics before they discovered she was pregnant. Doctors suggested that she consid…er aborting t…he baby for her own safety and told her that the medicines had caused irreversible damage to her baby. She refused the abortion and cited her Christian faith as the reason for her hope that her son would be born without the devastating disabilities physicians predicted.

While pregnant, Pam nearly lost their baby four times but refused to consider abortion. She recalled making a pledge to God with her husband: If you will give us a son, we’ll name him Timothy and we’ll make him a preacher.

Pam ultimately spent the last two months of her pregnancy in bed and eventually gave birth to a healthy baby boy August 14, 1987. Pam’s youngest son is indeed a preacher. He preaches in prisons, makes hospital visits, and serves with his father’s ministry in the Philippines. He also plays football. Pam’s son is Tim Tebow.

    John 3:16. Glory be to God.

    The people are responding to this young man as an example of whats good in this world. Compare him to the thug football players getting in trouble, drunk driving, carrying guns, etc, and he shines of God’s love.

    The disdain towards him shows their jealousy and evil heart. Go Tebow! You are the light and the good and a brave young man in the face of the madness that our society has become.

  • I’d

    Im not even religious and I find him inspiring. I hope the nfl does not change him and Tim stays the course with his life.


    after the PATRIOTS whip his butt tonight…he will have plenty of time to be a minister with his father

    #4: It will be a great game regardless of who wins.

    I like Tebow but hopefully all this talk about him will end tonight. Getting so sick of hearing about him. Like I said before, all the media is doing(which includes Jim) is building this guy up for a bigger fall. I’ll be very surprised if Tebow isn’t benched at some point next year for someone else. The college style of play may work in the short term because teams are not sure how to prepare for it but soon it will be figured out by defensive coaches…and then what for Tebow?

    If Tebow wants to succeed in the NFL he has to learn how to play in the pocket and not run. Running QBs have never won a Super Bow. Steve Young and John Elway were runners early in their careers and didn’t win Super Bowls until they got too old to keep running and stayed in the pocket. But Elway and Young also had something Tebow doesn’t, great passing ability. So, will Tebow ever win a Super Bowl? Most likely not. He is just not a good quarterback.

    By the way, I think God likes Tom Brady a little more….he gave him Gisele Bündchen after all.

    It is being predicted to being one of the most watched games in recent history.

    # 4…ditto…..Tebow is a good kid but I don’t think Denver will be able to overcome the Patriots……….But then again I’ve watched the Pats defense and it’s not that great.

    Tim Tebow Foundation has helped countless people –much of the money Tebow receives goes directly to sponsoring his “Wish” recipients, not to mention his Orphanage and Hospital in the Philippines. One particular recipient, a young QB from Virginia lost his leg in a freak scrimmage accident. I happened to have seen this young man at a game post accident, standing on the sidelines using a single crutch, his pant leg pinned up, for hours. The young man showed remarkable courage and really touched me. Now I found out that Tebow reached out to him only reinforces how remarkable Tebow really is. Now contrast his use of his personal fortune to Brady–building a megamillion monstrosity in California for his family of 3. Just sayin.

    No wonder many on the hedonistic Left despises Tebow. He’s doing the job they believe belongs solely to government.

    Speaking solely for myself I am militantly indifferent to professional sports and most pro athletes. So much money and adulation wasted while the true heroes who make a lasting difference in our lives are ignored.

    game is a sit on the edge of your seater.. :-)

    Unless I am vastly mistaken, and that is quite possible given my militant indifference to pro sports, there will be one winning team and one losing team. Pro sports is unlike military conflict where both sides can end up losing.

    well, it may bring little solace to a militant like you, but here ya go..

    Troops For Tebow

    not to mention this (he also visits veterans hospitals and prisons)..

    [Every week, Tebow picks out someone who is suffering, or who is dying, or who is injured. He flies these people and their families to the Broncos game, rents them a car, puts them up in a nice hotel, buys them dinner (usually at a Dave & Buster’s), gets them and their families pregame passes, visits with them just before kickoff (!), gets them 30-yard-line tickets down low, visits with them after the game (sometimes for an hour), has them walk him to his car, and sends them off with a basket of gifts.]


  • Obamas regulation destroy jobs

    I wonder if he could be one of the two witnesses spoken about in revelations? It says a very simple clue of when Christ’s return will be exactly 3 years and 6 months away – from the beginning of the ministry of the two witnesses.

    With Obama’s in office Sodom and Egypt is here NOW: lovers of them selves, idolators, liars, snakes from hell all of them. The me (I) generation. And all those democrats who worship Obama the KING/Queen of LIES. Pure EVIL.

    Tebow stands up for Christ and his beliefs finally someone with HONOR, a true believer!

  • xkaydet65

    We Catholics do not always comprehend Evangelical Protestants like Tim Tebow. But there was one of us who would understand him completely. Teresa of Liseux, who saw the presence of God in the completion of each day’s small labors. She would understand Tim Tebow completely.

    I do believe you have misunderstood what I was saying, or I was less than adequate in expressing myself. More likely the latter.

    I was not, and am not, denigrating what Tebow does, it truly is not the norm, especially for a professional athlete. Sadly too many people come close to outright worship of pro athletes regardless of their lives and behavior outside of the public purview.

    On the other hand most of the people who should our heroes have neither the money or public exposure to highlight what they do. They do what they do because they believe it is the right thing to do, fame and fortune is not their main concern.

    I take solace in many things, but the ephemeralness of sports, especially pro sports, is not one of those things.


    I will take Tebow and the points!

    I’ve been watching the build up for this game and I’m praying for TEBOW. Not for the stupid game. I’m praying to God to keep this kid safe – mentally, emotionally, PHYSICALLY, and the guys that are standing in front of him this Saturday at 6pm because it seems a WHOLE LOT of psychic/mental energy is being poured into this game because of TEBOW so I’m putting praying for a ring of protection around him and the men who protect him. God protect TEBOW and the men who stand on that line in front of him – let not one of them be hurt, no toe, no knee, no knuckle, no vertebrae, no shoulder, no spleen, no chest, no rib, no head injury and God give TEBOW and those men the strength to get through the mental energy focused on that game and come out the other side SANE and HEALTHY. Screw the game.
