Owen Strachan, a theology professor who admits to following the Patriots since the days when "Drew Bledsoe was completing cannon-like passes to more sideline coaches than receivers," struggles with the issue of whether God's hand is guiding Tebow's arm and what happens if the Patriots repeat their earlier stomping of Denver (Ed. note: Wouldn't it be something if the Pats won 66-6?), concludes that since the Bible basically promises suffering to Christians:
It means that there is no reason to believe that God has failed Tebow, that the light of the divine in Tebow's life is extinguished. God's Spirit, directed by God's will, blows like the wind where it wishes (John 3:8). It may be that Tebow will succeed in spectacular fashion; it may be that he will have the worst game of his life. Either way, the Bible assures us that God loves his chosen, God is orchestrating every detail of their lives, and God will lead them through success or failure to the end of all things. Sometimes God grants believers great victories, and sometimes he asks them to walk through the fire. This is true whether it is experienced on the football field, in the office, or in a country that rewards outspoken Christianity with a sword to the throat.
