Forget football. Get ready for Pastor Tebow

posted at 1:01 pm on April 7, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

Tim Tebow will be starting on Sunday. Of course, it has nothing to do with the wildcat formation or third and long. The new Jets superstar will be delivering the Easter sermon at a Texas church.

Tim Tebow is suiting up for Easter Sunday — although he’s still just a backup.

The sporting world’s best-known Christian will deliver a 20-minute sermon at a Texas church this weekend to mark the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Joe Champion of the Celebration Church in Georgetown, Texas, said he had no idea why the Jets’ newest addition picked their “Easter on the Hill” worship service for his appearance.

But he made it clear that Tebow’s role this Sunday is similar to his gig with Gang Green: He’s not the first-stringer.

“It’s not a Tim Tebow show,” Champion told KVUE-TV. “It’s not about celebrity. There’s really only one celebrity that we are going to honor and highlight.”

I continue wanting to dislike Tebow, but the guy really makes it tough. I managed to ignore him for he most part when he was in Denver, but when he signed on with the Jets, things got personal. I really didn’t want him coming to New York where we already have our full quota of sub-par quarterbacks. But there’s just something about the guy…

With lots of star athletes they make things easy. After they get some money in their pocket they start running around partying with supermodels, developing substance abuse problems or shooting themselves in the leg in a bar. But not Tebow. Nooooo.

“Hey, can you come deliver a sermon at our church?”

“Sure.”

“Say, my kid has cancer. Can you come visit him and bring him to a game?”

“No problem.”

“My dog died.”

“Here. You can have my dog.”

Sheesh. What’s up with this guy? Can’t he at least get a jaywalking ticket or something so I can scream at him?

Good luck Tebow. You are a really nice young man and many admire you for you faith and how you prove by actions your faith. That would include me, BTW.

God bless you Tim and may you have a beautiful Easter.

I don’t follow him, football or sports at all and I like him – maybe it’s because he’s a genuine Christian.

Even if he were to eventually stumble I’d like him because his past and present actions show that he’d be humble and contrite – probably to the point of not only mere deprecation but nigh self-flagulation, removing himself.

Reggie White was one. In fact, I’m convinced that TT isn’t hated by many in the press because he’s a Christian, or that he’s an outspoken Christian athlete. Because in that regard, he’s not breaking any “new ground”. I really think he’s despised in the press primarily because of two things: he’s home schooled, and his mother chose not to abort him when she was advised to do so.

bold added

No, everyone does not want to hate him. In all likelihood, quite a few of those who started out disliking him -figuring he was just another ‘religion on his sleeve’ hypocrite- have begun to come around due to his enduring sincerity.

Probably, the number of people who hate him because of his overt religiousness is roughly equal to the number who are overtly religious and whose hypocrisy is manifested in a need to be perceived as some kind of martyr; a victim of persecution who “everyone wants to hate”.

It’s sad.

I didn’t know much about him till I happened to see an interview when he was picked up by the Jets. His optimism, humility and sincerity really shone through. I hope he does well with the Jets.

Dee2008 on April 7, 2012 at 1:46 PM

Tim Tebow is a great role model for all of us. He is not afraid to show his heart. We Christians need to step up our game, and defend our beliefs. If a Muslim did what TT does, he wouldn’t get any bad press. But Christian’s get cut down and ridiculed. I, for one, wish I could hear Tim preach on Easter Sunday. It’s just too long of a drive from Michigan…

football wise, I dislike Tebow because he beat Oklahoma in the national championship, and I lost a bet when he got drafted in the first round; however I have gained serious respect for his heart and desire to succeed. not sure he can succeed in the NFL as a quarterback, but I would find a place on the field for him. personally, he’d be my first choice to marry my daughter if I had one. I live in Round Rock, might have to make the 10 minute drive over to Georgetown tomorrow…

burserker on April 7, 2012 at 2:03 PM

He has that quality. Even after beating the Tide, I spoke to many fellow fans and grads who (quietly) said lots of positive post-game things. Pretty neat for a fellow to be able to bring that sort of goodwill out of folks

rogerb on April 7, 2012 at 2:05 PM

Why even jokingly pine for someone who demonstrates upright moral character to morally fail?

The answer to that question tells us more about the person making such an observation than it would if the person made a list of their own moral failures.

Standing in the presence of Christlikeness shines a light on ones own sins, and convicts us in our hearts, unless evil rules our hearts. Joking about it is a coping mechanism, but the failure still gnaws.

Right Jazz?

Let Tim Tebow be Tim Tebow. If he falls, he falls – he is only a man, after all. And if he doesn’t fall, he is a shining example of what humanity could look like if we all gave our hearts to Jesus Christ as completely as Tim Tebow has.

Tebow and Obama are like north and south

Obamatrix on April 7, 2012 at 2:09 PM

Short note on why I think Tebow is getting a lot of the “he talks about JC too much” talk.

He actually does what Christ said to do, which is tell the world about him. Tim realizes this was a command for every part of his life, not just for when it is easy…or on Sunday when he is around like minded individuals. He is an apostle, who just happens to be good at football. (full disclosure: I am a Denver Bronco fan who thinks having Tebow was AWESOME for the team) So when people ask him about victories/losses/tieing his shoe, he responds first with some variation of why God should get the glory.

This scares most Americans because over the last 40 years we have by and large been convinced that Christianity has everything to do with “being nice” to people and not spreading the word about a personal savior. Tim reminds us that to follow Christ is to tell others about him (because there is no salvation except through Christ) and this makes us feel bad about ourselves. You can believe in the God of the Jews without being a Christian…but calling yourself a Christian and not telling others is a lie…and this makes us ashamed when we see what we should be…and this makes us lash out at the person holding a candle to our shame.

p.s. Yes, I did work in a couple Hamlet references… :)

Young Mr. Tebow is a committed Christian. People want to see him fall/fail so they can say,

“SEE! He’s just like all the rest of them! A hypocrite!!”

When Namath was the Jets q/b, he’d fornicate anything that would hold still, and brag about it. Fans couldn’t get enough of the ‘slut du jour’, young men grew up wanting to be like Namath and we have a moral catastrophe as a result. Did Namath cause all by himself? Of course not. Was he a strong influence contributing to the moral decline? Afraid so.

At some point in his life Tebow will stumble and he may fall, but that’s what ‘grace’ is about. And anyway, it isn’t really Mr. Tebow that people get upset about, it’s the GOD he serves and the fact that he’s serious about – and not ashamed of – his faith.

PS With some work and good coaching, Tebow may be the best thing to happen to the Jets in years.

Jesus is real. Even non-Christian historians believe this:

The extant manuscripts of the writings of the 1st century Romano-Jewish historian Flavius Josephus include references to Jesus and the origins of Christianity. Josephus’ Antiquities of the Jews, written around 93–94 AD, includes two references to Jesus in Books 18 and 20 and a reference to John the Baptist in Book 18.

The overwhelming majority of modern scholars consider the reference in Book 20, Chapter 9, 1 of the Antiquities to “the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, whose name was James” to be authentic and to have the highest level of authenticity among the references of Josephus to Christianity.

Your Mamma loves me on April 7, 2012 at 5:06 PM

How did Jesus rise?
First, the Bible claims that Jesus was the incarnation of God:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.
John 1:1~2

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14

The Word = Jesus.
Since Jesus was God in the flesh, that would explain his ability to rise from the dead.

Second, if you are sincerely interested in learning about the resurrection of Jesus, you need to read the Bible. Here’s an example:

1 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’”
Luke 24:1~7

It’s hilarious to see so many around here saying what the guy is instead of what his ability is should be what determines his place in the NFL.

What a bunch of liberals you are.

First, the article was about his preaching, not his football. Second, as rookie he took his team to the playoffs after his predecessor began with a 1-4 start, and further, most NFL quarterbacks take 3-5 years to mature. He may deserve a couple more years before declaring him useless, and finally, after all he did for the Broncos and after they unceremoniously dumped him, he told management to make the deal that was best for the team. He could have asked to go to Miami where his fan-base would have been higher.

He acts with class in all he does. Unlike some of the posters.

Is he still a virgin?

liberal4life on April 7, 2012 at 2:08 PM

You keep proving me right and you’re loathesome.

Just because your lost your virginity at 12 and take pride in your STD and abortion count doesn’t mean you should mock others. I know Tebow makes you feel really small but please. Just quit.

Jesus is Risen!

He is risen indeed.

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies . . . ” My question to some of you: What happens to you after you die? If Jesus is a hoax, I will be no worse than you. I know some might identify this reasoning as Pascal’s Wager, as if simply identifying it makes it invalid.

You proved my point. Did Tebow walk on water as he left the building?

Denver dumped him as soon as someone else became available BECAUSE TEBOW ISN’T AN NFL QUARTERBACK.

But, he prays a lot in front of everyone, so just keep him on and give him millions of dollars anyway, eh? Smart.

Moesart on April 7, 2012 at 9:02 PM

Probably, the number of people who hate him because of his overt religiousness is roughly equal to the number who are overtly religious and whose hypocrisy is manifested in a need to be perceived as some kind of martyr; a victim of persecution who “everyone wants to hate”.

It’s sad.

M240H on April 7, 2012 at 1:39 PM

It doesn’t have to be about his religion for some of us, ya know. The guy seems genuinely nice, and as far as I know he hasn’t taken a pic of penis and sent it to people, hasn’t been accused of rape, hasn’t shot himself in the leg, etc etc etc.

There’s no need to add that mocking tone of yours there at the end either, champ.

robertlbryant on April 7, 2012 at 9:28 PM

During his press conference when he joined the Jets, when each new reporter asked a question they started with the obligatory, polite standard greeting – “how are you”, “hello”, “good to see you”, etc. It’s rhetorical. Normally after the first one you just let it slide and wait for the actual question. Not Tim Tebow. He responded to every single salutation in kind. Every one. They were not rhetorical to him. He’s so polite you want to hug him.

Didn’t he take over a 1-4 team and get them to the 2nd round of the playoffs? Aren’t team results what counts? How’d that get to be liberal?

TugboatPhil on April 7, 2012 at 9:57 PM

Mr. Tebow and I have one thing in common. We simply don’t care about the fools, and the freaks who are so terrified in their spiritual loneliness that they mock a good and decent man to try to salve a wound that will not heal…..and yes there is a reason why the reverse of God is dog…in his wisdom he gave us a beautiful loyal beast that loves us everyday. And every day is gift to know them.

liberal4life on April 7, 2012 at 2:08 PM

Who knows. The only thing we do know for certain though, is that if he is, it’s completely by choice.

Esthier on April 8, 2012 at 11:01 AM

I continue wanting to dislike Tebow

Why? Do you feel threatened by him?
