Kurt Warner was known as one of the most religious players in the NFL when he played. One of his most notable moments was when he won the Super Bowl and bellowed “Thank you Jesus!” As Christ-focused as he was, the former Rams and Cardinals quarterback quickly learned that constantly mentioning the Lord can be [...]

  • If your ashamed to acknowlege the lord, would the lord be ashamed to acknowlege you.
  • I commend Tim for standing loyal to a savior that stands loyal to his children.God Bless you Tim Tebow.
  • warner needs not forget where he came from.someone has to show are kids that it is ok to love the lord outside of the 4 walls.we need more tebow in this world.
  • Tim keep being Tim, when they tell all the other players tone down their &#$!@&*!!! all day long then they can talk about you acknowledging the lord.
  • Typical Organized Religion Advertising Christian. Liar, Cheater, Theif and Adulterer. Check into this preachers background, I bet you will find that he broke the 10 commandments. Gainesville,FL resident.
  • Oh tone down the talk about God but allow the unsaved to yell, scream, write, sing, talk about anything from killing to rape to talking about calling women hoes. Kurt Warner you need to shut up dude. If it was not for God that young man wouldn't be able to do any of the things he is doing.
  • Well said Kurt. I would consider myself a strong Christian. I don't push religion on anyone. Ashamed if I don't broadcast??? Nonsense! I've seen many who wear crucifixed and have last supper murals, and play religion all the time. Tebow can win more souls for Christ through his walk. Those who want to know more can approach him with pressure. I wouldn't want another religious person pushing their believes on me. I admired Warner by his walk in life and never heard any controversy over his being a Christian. Those "ashamed" comments are religous pressured tactics that most often drive those seeking, away! I love Jesus Christ, hold Bible studies and work every day at walking the walk as Jabez in 1 Chr 4:10 prayed. If God wants me to plant a seed in someone, He will present that opportunity, If I'm to water or bring closure, then He will tell me when as He has done more than once. Sound advise on Warner's part, and I would have Tebow over for dinner any day of the week as I do admire his Christian conviction.

    Update: November 30, 2011
    Being a devout Christian, a worship band guitarist at my church, an Elder as well. I belong to a non-demonational church. I don't push my believes or religion on anyone. Am I "Ashamed" of God? Not at all. I don't need to push my faith on anyone. Nor do I want anyone to push their believes or religion on me. I do admire Tebow for being open about his devout faith in our Lord and Savior; Jesus Christ. The issue here it would appear is the "pushing" if you will by Tebow on his fellow team mates. Tebow should allow his walk to bring others to Christ. God will show Tebow the doors to open, who He needs Tebow to "plant the seed" on. I hold Bible Studies year around, but don't go Bible pounding everyone at my work place. They know me by my walk. I've been told by those who became Christians where I work, that it was my day to day living that showed them I lived my faith, not talked it. They appreciated not being pushed upon, yet that I was available to them. I admire Warner for his walk in life. I never heard any controversy over his being a Christian, but did watch he and his wife give testimony / witness to God's blessings in their lives. I find the comments "ashamed if I don't broadcast" comments a pressure sales. God is not about pressure sales. The Prayer of Jabez in 1 Ch 4:10 is a great prayer to start each day with. If God wants me to plant a seed in someone, He will present that opportunity, If I'm to water or bring closure, then He will present those individuals to me as He has done more than once.
