   God has always had his favorites, since the beginning of time.
(Check the Bible).                     Last weeks' come from behind win
by JG should come as no surprise, to people who follow the Bible, as
well as NASCAR.                     Obviously, JG is Gods' chosen
disciple in the field of NASCAR.
Perhaps, HE is trying to get NASCAR away from its tobacco and beer
image, and in to a milk and Pepsi image.  (Laverne DeFazio)
Did you ever wonder why Bill Dance can keep on catching those big lunker
bass, while you can't catch anything, using the same lures and
presentation, that he does?  Bill is a natural born fisherman, which is
a Gift From God.                 So, we might as well face it.  We are,
what we are, and Jeff Gordon might very well be the best NASCAR driver
of all time.                                  Not his fault, actually.
I believe he was destined to it.

Not taking anything away from Jeff Gordon's driving abilities. You need to take
in effect that it's a team effort and not just the driver. I believe you could
put almost any Cup driver in that team and come out a winner.

So why aren't the other two Hendrick cars winning?

God gave Jeff the ability to drive, just as he gave the same ability to
all the other drivers out there.  I personally don't like Jeff thanking
God after each race.  It seems a bit too filled with pride.  I would be
happier if he thanked God for a safe race and for an exciting race for
the fans.  God is with every driver, not just Jeff.

BTW, Pepsi is probably just as bad for you as tobacco and beer.  The
Bible doesn't mention any of them (besides telling us not to get drunk -
doesn't say anything about having a beer).

I have to say that I won't be cheering for JG tonite.  Jeff should have
many chances in his career to get five wins.  I'll be cheering for Ricky
Rudd, as I want to see him continue his streak of wins in consecutive
seasons.

I can agree w/ some of things your saying, BUT I believe because since Jeff
does thank God after each race he blesses him even more.  Yes, God is w/ every
driver and does help them but the more you thank him for his blessings and live
by his word the more you are going to be blessed.  I believe that by mere
experience.  If you don't then I'm sorry.  Maybe more of the drivers should try
that and see what happens.  Instead of using foul language and all that stuff
they should just thank God for allowing a good clean race and a safe one.  That
is all we can ask for the rest is up to him.  That's all folks!

I think he said THAT team meaning the 24 car...;)

Some more than others.  Or do you think Pee Wee Herman was given the same

Like God was equally with the Eqyptians and the Israelites in parting the

Step back and read what you wrote again  <G>

This is the problem that a lot of people have with JG and "thanking
God". The fact that he *Doesn't* do it after a poor finish. (thank
 God for a safe race, or for the ability to even be in the race)
He only show his thanks after a *win*.

Personally, I couldn't care less if he climbs out of the car and
thanks God, Allah, Budda, Bahaulla, the Sun, or Earth, Wind and Fire !

I said they were all given the ability to drive.  Not they all were
given the ability to drive really good.  It's natural that some of us
are better at things than others.  It's also natural that if you put me
in a Winston Cup car I'll probably be lucky to get around Bristol in 2
minutes.  Point was, God gave all the drivers their ability, and yes,
some are better than others.  But in response to the original post, that
does not make JG, "God's chosen".

First off, you assume that all fans believe in the bible, a book that has
been edited by EVERY government since it was written. God is a grand idea on
how the world should be, somewhat like the golden rule.
God, there is no God and thus, no one has a gift from God.
A person is a good driver because he has a good team, talent, and so on, not
once have I ever thought that a 'ghost' had anything to do with it.

Tobacco and beer image, now let's see, how long have the people of the Earth
been smoking and drinking? To make a comment like this, one would assume
that you have never partaken in either. Smoking or drinking ***.
If I remember correctly, wasn't  *** serve at the last supper? 'nuff
said.
Keep your God out of racing.

Regards

Dave

Hmmmmmm, lets see now the Israelites worshipped God and the Egyptians didn't,
that doesn't seem too hard to figure out. The Israelites were going home ,and
the Egyptians were trying to kill them, again it seems pretty simple to me.

I have read about the Yankees and the Bulls more on this newsgroup,
than the races and drivers of NASCAR.
