Man, I’m getting T-I-R-E-D of all the Tebow crap getting thrown around. Haters. Fans. Non-Christ followers and Christ followers (both kinds of folks fall into the hater camp as well as Tebow fans). IF you care what I think, I’m indifferent to him unless he’s playing the Bears. I do get lots of amusement when coaches or players pray for a win, instead of to display good character or for safety concerns. What’s God gonna do if the OTHER team prays for the win, too?!?!
Today, I came across a blog that I’m down with, regarding my thoughts about the news Tebow creates—mostly. (I don’t get how this guy’s using Ecclesiastes 3:16 here.) Check it out below—after laughing at this picture. Then, when you’re done, watch this hilarious (non-persecuting) SNL skit about Tim Tebow. (BTW, I would react like Tebow in the skit and you would, too, if Jesus really did show up to give you a pep talk!)
Honestly, I am about sick of the religious furor over Tim Tebow.
What we are seeing the exact problem with American Christianity – we are always looking for the next superstar to validate our faith.
Facts about Tebow as I see them:
1. Tebow is a Christian
2. He prays
3. God doesn’t care about football
4. Jesus is not a quarterback or a guardian angel
5. The furor over Tebow reminds me of the prosperity gospel. This time, however, it is include Jesus in your touchdown dance and you will get more yards.
6. Tebow himself is not a bad guy; his supporters, fans, followers, fanatics, etc… Ae the ones causing the problem. Don’t bash Tebow for his fans.
7. We are in the middle of an election which is a major thing for our Republic. We need attention focused on the real issues of the United States. We have them you know, and none of them, at all, are connected to whether or not someone getting paid millions of dollars to play a game prays when he gets a few points.
8. The person in front of the camera is not the Christian to always look for… Look for the one in the local church, who organizes a charity bazaar, or helps a family… Celebrate them.
And stop trying to “spiritualize” everything… 316 yards? Really? That means what? What about Ecclesiastes 3:16?
Moreover, I saw under the sun the place of justice – the impious was there, and the place of righteous – the impious was there (NETS)
