Tiger Woods - The Chosen One?

God opposes the proud . . . (James 4:6)

In reflecting on Tiger Woods' apology to the world for his adultery yesterday, I was reminded of an interview some years ago with his father. In 1996, when Tiger was named Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year, Earl Woods told the magazine's Gary Smith the following (to read the whole article, click here):

"Tiger will do more than any other man in history to change the course of humanity ... he's qualified through his ethnicity to accomplish miracles. He's the bridge between the East and the West. There is no limit because he has the guidance. I don't know yet exactly what form this will take. But he is the Chosen One. He'll have the power to impact nations. Not people. Nations. The world is just getting a taste of his power."
"If anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘Look, there he is!’ do not believe it. . . . But be on guard; I have told you all things beforehand." (Mark 13:21, 23)
