The University of Florida announced this week that it will not be removing an inscribed Bible verse from one of its new campus buildings, even though an out-of-town secularist organization, as well as student groups, have complained that the inscription is a breach of the separation of church and state.
On a double archway that leads to the courtyard of the university's newly built Heavener Hall, the building that houses the institution's Heavener School of Business, is the Bible verse: Micah 6:8. The inscription reads, "He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."
The verse was provided by the building's donor James W. Heavener, a Christian business owner who is the CEO of Full Sail University, a University of Florida trustee and a board member of the Tim Tebow Foundation. more >>
Tim Tebow's NFL dreams were dashed Saturday after he was released from the Philadelphia Eagles, but the Christian quarterback is leaning on the Word of God and is publicly expressing his gratitude instead of any disappointment.
On Saturday, the world learned that Tebow, 28, did not make the Eagles' 53-man roster that is being led by coach Chip Kelly. The move might have come as a surprise to some after Matt Barkley, the quarterback competing against Tebow for a third string spot, signed on to the Arizona Cardinals.
Although Tebow was passed over for a position that has a vacancy, the NFL hopeful handled what many would view as an upset with grace. more >>
Tim Tebow is vying for the third string quarterback position on the Philadelphia Eagles but says he is not worried about making the 53-man roster once the official NFL season starts September 10.
"That's not something I worry about to be honest. I worry about what I can control and that's come out and improve every day, enjoy the process, count your blessings and work extremely hard," Tebow said in a www.NJ.com report after his football practice Monday. "You know something I always try to practice is be anxious for nothing, but let your request be known to God. That's how I try to handle that.''
Although it is unclear whether the quarterback will join coach Chip Kelly's Eagles team, Tebow spoke about his improved play during the preseason. more >>
As outspoken Christian quarterback Tim Tebow played in his first NFL game in almost two years Sunday afternoon, the 28-year-old was greeted with a loud standing ovation. He later ran for a touchdown in the fourth quarter of the Eagles' 36-10 victory.
Tebow last played in August of 2013 when he was signed with the New England Patriots, but was later released after a rough preseason. After Tebow signed with the Eagles during the offseason, Philly fans were eager to show their excitement to have the former Florida Gator standout on their roster.
As fellow Christian quarterback Mark Sanchez got the nod to start the Eagles first preseason game of the 2015 season against the Indianapolis Colts, Tebow finally entered into the contest midway through the third quarter, and was greeted by the crowd at Lincoln Financial Field with a standing ovation. more >>
