6:5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
Perhaps. But Tebow isn't the one who's turned this into a huge public spectacle. Rather, his critics have chosen to shine the spotlight on his action.
In addition, Christians also have a duty to publicly witness to their faith: "So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven" (Mt 10:32).
There's a time for quiet prayer by our-self, and a time to pray with boldness in public for our Savior and Father to do mighty things, and/or simply thank Him.Tebow is quite a good example as a brother in Christ for me and my way of thinking. But, he is just a man, and any thing could happen to him, that's for sure. We have a plethora of examples in the Holy Writ: David, Lot, Peter, Judah, etc.Tim has been a good witness, and his light shines, and sinners should hate it. Bill Bennett is a devout Catholic, and maybe a born again Christian, I think. So his article is good to read.Jake Plummer was speaking like I would have when I was in the dark. He didn't mock Jesus Christ really, but simply says do that kind of stuff somewhere else, go get in your closet, so to say.I would love for the Broncos to make it here in Baltimore to play our Ravens. That would be great.
