The term “a God thing” carries many meanings. Obviously, Star sports columnist Joe Medley has a lot to learn about faith and our Lord. Christians believe that God knows all and has his hand in everything, good or bad.
If you want to mock Auburn football coach Gene Chizik, so be it, but in 2009 how many Alabama Crimson Tide faithful were praying for big boy Terrence Cody to get his fat paw up there and block Tennessee’s field goal, or “Please, Lord, help Bama find a way to get a score” when Auburn had the Tide beat near the end of the Iron Bowl? How many said, “Thank you, Lord,” when they won?
When Chizik said, “a God thing,” I’m sure it’s a reference to giving the Tigers the strength and endurance to persevere until Clemson made a critical mistake. It happened and Auburn won.
To answer your petty questions about Michigan, Jacksonville State, BYU, Baylor, etc., please refer to your first paragraph.
If you don’t think God is involved, ask yourself, Joe, why you’re working for a second-rate liberal paper in Alabama.
Why is it so hard to believe that God knows all? The Bible says God is always on time with his blessings. It’s not always what and when we want. He does, however, only give three responses, Yes, No and Wait. In time, He will deal with Bama, too.
So, Joe, have a very blessed day.
