    "Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven." Matt.6:1

    "And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to [kneel] and pray in the [endzone] and [on the sidelines], that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your [locker] room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you." Matt.6:5-6 (updated)

    I have never liked Tebow.

    Everyone has the right to believe in whatever and worship in whatever way they choose.

    I just don't think it should be part of sports or politics.

    Tebow's kneeling kind of seems a little like nose-thumbing everyone else's beliefs.

    The old, "My God is better than your God" thing.

    Let him do it in the locker room, with any teammates who care to join him.

    I do wish him the best; whatever may be in the future!

    Could it be that the reason so many non-Christian recognize Tebow's name is due to his recent notereity and not anything else?

    I can think of a few sports stars offhand who are religious besides Tebow; mostly Mormon though, but I do live in Utah.
