Tim Tebow blinded by infatuation redux

So I had previously written on Tim Tebow  with the post title being “blinded by infatuation” commending him for staying a virgin against sexual temptation. He recently got engaged to a former miss universe.

Hopefully he has a godly marriage because he does seem like a legitimate Christian, but there are definitely some possible yellow to red flags here.

  • Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters – I’m not one to usually rag on hyphenated names of a child who has one, but it’s usually a yellow flag because the family is more inclined toward feminism than not.
  • Her Miss Universe platform is feminist in nature and about things that have already been debunked:

After winning her title, Nel-Peters made it her mission to focus on gender and pay equality, stressing the importance of confidence for women. She also expressed that she wants to use her self-defense workshops to help women protect themselves.

During the round of questioning, she was asked what she thought was the most important issue facing women in the workplace: “In some places, women get paid 75 percent of what men earn for doing the same job, working the same hours, and I do not believe that this is right. I think we should have equal work for equal pay for women all over the world.”

The campaign, which aims at empowering women around the world with skills and knowledge on how to prevent or handle abusive and violent situations, was started in 2017.

“Becoming Miss Universe made me realize that women worldwide face the same challenges daily, such as various forms of violence and crime, physical and emotional abuse, and toxic relationships, among others,” Nel-Peters said after the launch.

“My hope is that Unbreakable will inspire women to believe in themselves, to value themselves and to know that asking for help does not mean you are weak,” she said.

I don’t know them so they could both be legit Christians, but there are some possible warning signs that hopefully Tebow has taken into account. I hope for his sake he has not been blinded by infatuation.

    Yes, this oft-repeated feminist claim is not true in the USA and probably none of the Western world. However, I wonder if it might be true in other parts of the world? If it is, then she may actually have a point, likely inadvertently, because she qualified her statement with the phrase “In some places”.

    But she is still likely quite feminist in her thinking, regardless of the strength of her faith.

    Any man who marries a model (a prostitute who doesn’t go all the way) is a moron.

    Never, EVER pick a high profile woman for a wife, especially a Miss Universe or model, whos entire life revolves around their getting attention. Its just a matter of time before you dont fulfill her ever growing need and she ditches you for someone else, alpha jock or not. He would have been better off finding some little cutie from Podunk, USA who five years his junior and enamored with him than a supermodel Miss Universe who will spend more time away from him serving herself than she will be by his side serving him. I hope the best for him, but history does not show this ending well.

    My gut reaction from reading is the same as it was from hearing about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. This will end in disaster in spite of all his good intentions and effort.

    well … unless you’re Trump 😉

  6. Ame says:

    if she is who he thinks she is, she may very well be a good fit. he’s going to be in the public, and it serves him well to marry a woman who is comfortable with that.

    – will she compete too much with him?
    – is she really that feminist leaning … or did she play her role well to get the job she wanted?

    the big red flag i saw – and granted all i saw was one little piece – is his ‘perfection’ comments – perfect diamond for perfect woman. hopefully it all works out very well between them, and they have a great life-long marriage.

  7. SnapperTrx says:

    Even Trump. The only difference is, can Tebow increase his power and prestige beyond where he is now? I dont know that Melania would eventually ditch out on Trump, but his position as President makes that a very unlikely scenario for now. Tebow, however, may be at the top of the rung in the game of football, but there are other people and other professions far above him, and this fiancée may consider herself one of them. Only time will tell.

    Good catch. I don’t know how I missed that one since I read through it twice.

    This is hard to say.

    Anyone who marries him basically becomes famous overnight, and you know what fame can do to women. If he marries some random nobody that could inflate her ego and possibly push her down that road if she’s not humble. At least with someone already famous, he probably already knows her character since she’s been famous for a while (or at least he should).

    I do think it is a much bigger risk to specifically marry a famous model as opposed to famous other profession.

    That said there are few prominent famous “Christians” so that could be one of the big things that helps them ‘stay together’ ironically.

  10. As much as everyone wish-casts for either being or being-with an Apex Alpha, it’s actually a really hard position to find a viable wife for a Christian in the position Tebow is in. The “Midwest Cutie” option was available until about a year after his NFL career ended.

    I wish them well, but it’s going to be rough, regardless.

    Well that’s kind of all he knows … his mother is a model, too.

  12. SnapperTrx says:

    Yes, but marrying a non-famous woman a notch or two lower than yourself creates a certain dynamic in which your wife knows she is “the lucky one” rather than the other way around. She might become famous overnight, but right off the bat she knows she is only famous because you picked her, not of her own accord or because she was already famous. It can create an atmosphere of gratitude, something Western women seem to lack when it comes to their husbands. Gratitude for being the one that was chosen. Instead she is trained that her husband is the lucky one and that she has bestowed some kind of honor and upon him, to which he should be grateful for and that she can rescind at any moment for any reason. That’s why it is very important, even for Tebow, to carefully vet and select a woman for a wife, and to groom her to retain that sense of gratitude, which can easily be done if you dont fall into the “my queen gets everything her heart desires because I can afford it” rut. If she stays grateful then the marriage will likely survive long term, but Christian men wretch at the idea of grooming or training their wives, or at the possibility that they have that authority and responsibility. I dont know Tim Tebow, but he has likely been raised in the same kind of western church I was raised in – severely compromised and awash with goddess worship disguised as chivalry and gentlemanliness. Only time will tell. I do wish him well, and hope his marriage stays intact for his lifetime.

  13. Ame says:

    i didn’t know that, Novaseeker. actually, i know very little about him or his family, so i looked up his mother … found her website. looks like fiance will fit in very well with his family:

    Being Miss Universe requires skill at virtue signaling and promoting mindless fluff. Everyone has naive expectations prior to marriage. The crucible of married reality typically burns these away.

    Lori Alexander recently posted that when she was a young wife, she espoused some typical feminist-flavor viewpoints. For example, she got angry that her husband didn’t do chores. Now she’s embraced the traditional role and fights feminism tooth and nail.

    I recently read some of the old notes my wife and I exchanged while dating and saw those same kind of feminist thoughts crop into the discussion. Yet, those were never the focus of our relationship and she’s changed quite a bit since then.

    The longer people are married, the more traditional they tend to become.

    Is it a red flag? Only Tebow knows for sure. If she’s primarily marriage and family oriented, those feminist tendencies may be surface beliefs.

    Don’t the Duggars have an eligible daughter?

  16. Bruce says:

    Serious question. How do you define a “legit Christian?”

  17. @ Bruce

    Serious question. How do you define a “legit Christian?”

    Humans cannot know hearts like God but there are several things that we should see from Christians who have placed Jesus at the center:

    1. Jesus: “If you love me, obey my commandments”

    2. Committed to spiritual growth and maturity by taking off the old and putting on the new. Over time, they should not be falling into the same patterns of sins and…

    3. Follow the Great Commission: Evangelizing and disciple making

    4. Using their spiritual gifts to love others and serve both in the Church and outside of it

    5. Otherwise bearing good fruit like Jesus mentions about how to distinguish false teachers from real ones.

    Tebow declaring that he’s going to maintain his virginity until marriage is obviously a good thing. He could have been virtue signalling, but many Christians are scared about admitting they are virgins so I find it more likely that is not the case. Also, he continues to speak about God, despite always receiving backlash about being open with his faith. I don’t know much about his other life such as his involvement with church, charity, and things like that but I think it’s likely that he’s involved and walking the walk so to speak.

    No clue about his fiancee though.

    I don’t really want the comments here to go into gossip as we really don’t know, but discussing famous figures and potential yellow or red flags is probably the limit of what we should do.

    Ame, Trump is an unusual guy. He is what I call a “True Alpha”, he is not a regular guy. Trump is the personification of an Alpha Male archetype. He cannot be matched in Alphaness, and therefor comparing him to a regular person is not a valid comparison. Trump can pull off what regular people cannot.

    A Christian “good guy” kid-role-model type like Tim Tebow, which admitted being a virgin (still is?) while playing in the NFL should NOT be with a Miss Universe type girl for a number of reasons.

    First being is that to become a Miss Universe type, she has likely banged many guys for “a real push forwward” over the years. That is how this game is played, folks. And if we look at Christian understanding of “sex for favors”, it is no different than sex for money (prostitution).

    Second, Tebow has a lot to lose (as do all men) when it comes to marriage. Tebow is a brand, based on being a good guy Christian role model. If this woman later decides to divorce him and he fails to meet her cash demands, she can accuse him of abuse, marital rape, etc and ruin his REPUTATION, which is what gives him fame and status. Tebow is one of the few “good role models” out there. The rest is all gangsta rappers, whores like the Kardashians, or vile types like Miley Cyrus or Lady GaGa.

    One of my co-workers (female) sent me that Tebow story before by text and she said “awwww… they seem truly happy and in love”. Maybe so… but for HIM, this is a huge risk. Huge. He has a lot to lose here if she decides to play hardball with him… he has almost nothing to gain here, sadly. This imbalance is what creates Marriage 2.0, the scam designed to trap, imprison, and steal from men. It is a such a vile trap, it is sickening.

    I worry for Tebow. I hope I am wrong, but we have such low trust in every institution in America today, having him fail (or be maliciously ruined) will just put another nick into our already crumbling society.

    Trump a “true alpha”

    Yeah ripped apart in divorce back when I was in college, voted for Clinton in 1992, and 1996. Makes insulting “tweets” about peoples appearance, cheats on his wife, won’t submit a budget and does like his two predecessors have done and use “spending bills” to maintain the whole thing from toppling……signs a 15 billion dollar arms deal with Saudi Arabia (who is not our friend btw). Has not cut spending “across the board” has not even dared tried to fix or or look at our broken entitlement system (Social Security, Medicaid, Federal pensions)

    but boy oh boy! He’s awesome! He’s the best president we ever have had! He’s done so much for America! The tax cut gave me roughly 65 dollars a year after the increaes in Social Security (FICA) taxes, Just as many illegal immigrants have come into the USA as they did in 2016, the wall “that Mexico is going to pay for” has now been part of the stumbling block that won’t allow us to have another “spending bill” unless money for the wall on the border is in the spending bill……..

    True Alpha. The bar is really lowered here, and I suppose that makes people “feel good about themselves” which is all that really counts in the USA today.

    He’s a terrible president, and Hillary would have been no better…….

    Oh, yeah…..and Trump has no problems with abortion either.

    A pretty face that hasn’t hit the feminist wall yet.

  21. AngloSaxon says:

    He did the get down on one knee thing. Ughhhhh.

  22. AngloSaxon says:

    How hard would it be for him to grab some pretty girl he met at church rather than going for someone who is obviously on the board the Fempowerment train.

  23. SnapperTrx says:

    Its a matter of quick and easy beauty. She’s pretty, he’s famous, she’s willing to hook up and marry without much fuss. He probably sees her as “God sent”, but she’s really just willing to forego the fuss because he is good looking and famous.

  24. Kevin says:

    I don’t know much about South Africa, but some countries do this with names. Not all countries/cultures adopt the standard first, middle and last name format as we do. In the Philippines, for example, the mom’s maiden name is part of a person’s full name.

  25. AngloSaxon says:

    Would love to be a fly on the wall at his church. If he’s into John Piper and friends he’s in trouble. If he’s into the whole “masculinity is sacrifice” thing he’s in trouble. If his church is anything like my church and he’s anything like most of the christian guys I know he’s in trouble…

  26. @ Kevin

    Doubling of surnames is also practised by the Dutch. An example is the name of Dutch footballer Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink. According to The Guardian, his name derives from “the 17th century, when two farming families in the Enschede area of the Netherlands intermarried. Both the Vennegoor and Hesselink names carried equal social weight, and so – rather than choose between them – they chose to use both. ‘Of’ in Dutch translates to ‘or’, which means that a strict translation of his name reads Jan Vennegoor or Hesselink.”[5][6] Some of these Dutch surnames also survive in South Africa, for example, the rugby player Rohan Janse van Rensburg’s surname is Janse van Rensburg, not only van Rensburg (which is itself an existing surname).

    It seems you are correct. Good catch.
