Does Tim Tebow Walk on Water?

So I am in a spinning class at the LA Fitness in Universal City when I get called out of class by a lady who says there is a phone call for me. She said that it wasn't an emergency, but it was important. Whew, well at least I knew no one died and ran downstairs to take the call. It was one of my assistants, Shalena, who says, "Fred Roggin of NBC Sports wants to interview you about Tim Tebow."

She then explained I had to be back at the church by 8:00 PM, where they would tape the segment. I raced home, changed my clothes, and got back to the church promptly at 8:00 PM. I did NOT know the questions he would ask, but I did have an idea about the direction of the interview.

I had NO idea what the final question would be and was surprised when Fred Roggin asked the following question. He asked me, "If New England and Denver were playing a football game in a river..." Right there, I was thinking, "WHAT?!?!?! In a RIVER?!?!?!" He continued, "If they were playing in a river, WOULD TIM TEBOW WALK ON WATER?"

Watch the video to see my response!!!

I saw this video online and LOVED your response. People keep forgetting, he is just a man and we'd be unwise to put any man on a pedestal. There are lessons in winning and there are even greater lessons in losing and we never know what lesson the Lord will teach that day. It would be foolish of us to celebrate God when one of his men are "winning" and then later find ourselves questioning Him after a loss.

I was just speaking to a friend of mine on the phone. She is a huge Tebow fan, so naturally, the conversation turned to religion and God. She is a believer, but not much a churchgoer. I told her she would love Shepherd and Pastor Dudley. Turns out her husband has attended a few services and agreed what a great pastor you are. After we hung up the phone, I decided to look you up, maybe see if I could find you on Twitter, when I came across your blog. I could not believe it when I saw your blog about your Fred Roggin interview about Tim Tebow. I immediately called my friend back, gave her your link and told her to check out the video. She was amazed that we were just talking about both of you, and now this. She will be logging on tonight to watch it. Im excited! I'm hoping to get her to come with me to a service very soon!

Thank you!
