Tim Tebow Patents Kneeling

Jim West posted this nice satirical treatment of the notion of Tim Tebow patenting “Tebowing,” his characteristic kneeling pose:

"Neither ideological/political nor religious/theological "progressives" of my acquaintance will define the term, neither can tell ..."

    In an opinion article in the L.A. Times this morning, there was a good article, “Cheering for Jesus”, about the cheerleaders of a Texas high school using Bible verses for banners. The author had a good quote from Tom Landry, the former coach of the Dallas Cowboys, that on-field prayers “mislead people and belittle God.”

    I am really disgusted at this, frankly. I was going to write a scathing blog post about it, but I remembered that I’m supposed to have a gentle spirit and all that. So I wrote a not-so-scathing blog post about it. I really wish this sort of nonsense wasn’t so widely accepted among Christians, though.

    I want to share this sentences From Risalei Nur collection by Said Nursi

    Be certain of this, that the highest aim of creation
    and its most important result are belief in God. The most exalted rank in
    humanity and its highest degree are the knowledge of God contained within
    belief in God. The most radiant happiness and sweetest bounty for jinn and
    human beings are the love of God contained within the knowledge of God. And the
    purest joy for the human spirit and the sheerest delight for man’s heart are
    the rapture of the spirit contained within the love of God. Indeed, all true happiness,
    pure joy, sweet bounties, and untroubled pleasure lie in knowledge of God and
    love of God; they cannot exist without them.

    One who knows and loves God Almighty is potentially
    able to receive endless bounties, happiness, lights, and mysteries. While one
    who does not truly know and love him is afflicted spiritually and materially by
    endless misery, pain, and fears. Even if such an impotent and miserable person
    owned the whole world, it would be worth nothing for him, for it would seem to
    him that he was living a fruitless life among the vagrant human race in a
    wretched world without owner or protector. Everyone may understand just how
    wretched and bewildered is man among the vagrant human race in this bewildering
    fleeting world if he does not know his Owner, if he does not discover his
    Master. But if he does discover and know Him, he will seek refuge in His mercy
    and will rely on His power. The desolate world will turn into a place of
    recreation and pleasure, it will become a place of trade for the hereafter.
