Twitter Censors Tim Tebow Biblical Video Message – Labels It ‘Sensitive Content’
Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow posted a Biblical video message to his Christian fans that was censored as 'sensitive content' by Twitter.
Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow was just censored by Twitter for posting a Biblical video message. The pro football turned baseball player is a devout and outspoken Christian athlete known for honoring God and his faith in all things. Though Twitter reversed the warning and called it an “error”, the incident raises red flags.
What content filters could a video message about God and the Bible legitimately trigger in the first place?
This could be your time. That breakthrough could be tomorrow, or it could be next year. But, you have the opportunity to turn however you're being tested into a testimony. So many heroes were wounded deeply before they were used greatly! pic.twitter.com/ldTu5acIDO

Tim Tebow’s Biblical Twitter Video
Tebow took to Twitter on Monday to post a powerful Biblical video to his fans, urging Christians to hold onto their faith during difficult times such as these.
The Blaze reported that within hours, the video was censored under a banner that read, “The following media includes potentially sensitive content.”
In the video, Tebow talked about the importance of standing by God during the tough times in life:
“Bible believers, when we look at the Bible, and we see a lot of the heroes, a lot of times they truly were wounded deeply before they were ever used greatly. So maybe you’re going through a time in your life where you feel like you’ve just been wounded greatly. It hasn’t been your year, hasn’t been your day — you just don’t feel like this is your time.”

The Christian athlete went on to add that there is growth in the valley.
“This could be your time for learning,” Tebow warned. “This could be your time for growing. This could be your time for adapting. This could be the time that is a test for you, but tomorrow it gets turned into a testimony.”
Tim Tebow Urges Fans To Lean On God
He also pointed out that our struggles today could just be God preparing us for future challenges:
“You never know what God is doing with your life. You never know what he is preparing you for. So many times in the Bible, when we look at the heroes, there were times in their life where — if they stopped, if they quit, if they said, ‘No, God, I’ve had enough’ — then they would have missed out on the most impactful, most influential times of their life.”
“Maybe that is the next step for you. Maybe that is tomorrow. Maybe that is next week, maybe that is next year. But when we quit, we will never know what we missed out on. We will never know what’s in store for us.”
Tebow concluded the video by saying that Christians never need to fear uncertainty because of their close bond with Jesus Christ.
“We get to trust an unknown future to a known God, because we know how much he loves us,” he explained. “We know what he did for us in sending his son. He gave his best for us.”
“Right where you’re at, whatever you’re doing, whatever you’re going through, he loves you,” Tebow concluded. “You were enough for his son to die on the cross, that’s how much you’re loved. Hold onto that in your time of need.”
Tebow had posted the video with the following caption:
“This could be your time. That breakthrough could be tomorrow, or it could be next year. But, you have the opportunity to turn however you’re being tested into a testimony. So many heroes were wounded deeply before they were used greatly!”
Why Would Twitter Censor Christian Content?
As you can see, there is absolutely nothing controversial about that video whatsoever. Unless, of course, you’re a leftist who is “offended” by anything that pertains to Christianity.
Given the known liberal leanings of Big Tech these days, it would not be surprising to learn that this was not an “error” at all. And was instead a clear attack on Christianity by someone at Twitter.
A spokesman for Twitter, however, said that “The Tweet … was flagged as potentially sensitive media in error. It has been corrected.”
Twitter also claims to be looking into why exactly Tim Tebow’s Biblical video message was censored.
Let’s hope that the social media giant is honest about their findings, because people deserve the truth.
