As soon as the announcement came that Tim Tebow was moving to the Jets, leaders at Christian City Church Manhattan began brainstorming: how to deliver an invitation to the NFL's most outspoken Christian?
"It would just be wonderful to have him," said Anthony Cecutti, who envisions the quarterback speaking to the men's group he leads at the Midtown church.
Jets fans may be torn about Mr. Tebow's surprise acquisition from the Denver Broncos, but New York's evangelical Christian community has far fewer reservations....
Tim comes from a missionary family whose website, Bob Tebow Evangelistic Association (BTEA), is the place where you can read up and Ã¢â‚¬ËœmeetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ the whole Tebow family and get a glimpse into their ministry.
and while you canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t draw concrete conclusions about a manÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ministry based on a snapshot in time, his presentation of the Gospel was a little disappointing: no mention of the necessity of the new birth, no mention of repentance, just the all too familiar easy-believism presentation followed by the infamous sinners prayer.
James 2 8 If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law, according to the Scripture, "YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF," you are doing well. 9 But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors.---NASB
