Tebow's Big Fumble

For Tim Tebow, speaking at the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas, had to look like a great opportunity. He grew up attending a large Southern Baptist church, and an invitation to speak at one of the most venerable and historic Baptist churches in the world had to look like an easy call. He was going.

All that changed yesterday when Tebow, the National Football League's most prominent evangelical symbol, sent word through Twitter that he was withdrawing from the event. His sudden announcement came after a whirlwind of controversy over his scheduled appearance at the Dallas church. Its senior minister, Robert Jeffress, is no stranger to public controversy. His sound bites are often incendiary, but his convictions—including the exclusivity of the gospel and the belief that homosexual behaviors are sinful—are clearly within the mainstream of American evangelicalism.

While many complained about ...

wake up, you have made an excellent point.

James 1
10 and let the rich man glory in his humiliation, because like flowering grass he will pass away.
11 For the sun rises with a scorching wind, and withers the grass; and its flower falls off, and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed; so too the rich man in the midst of his pursuits will fade away.

James 2
2 For if a man comes into your assembly with a gold ring and dressed in fine clothes, and there also comes in a poor man in dirty clothes,
3 and you pay special attention to the one who is wearing the fine clothes, and say, "You sit here in a good place," and you say to the poor man, "You stand over there, or sit down by my footstool,"
4 have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil motives?---NASB

Showing Partiality is Sin

I guess Tebow gets many invitations to speak at conferences, churches, etc. so he has to turn down most of them. This one may have "slipped through the cracks" of his handler's check, kinda like the pastor that was going to speak at the Obama inauguration but was "disinvited." Some see Tebow as a shining example in the NFL, as if there were never any Christians there before, nor there today. As younger and better QBs join the NFL, his star will lose its luster. But the "true believers" in him will never lose faith. Maybe he would be better off playing in the Canadian league.

Yes, you are correct. There should be no such thing as a Christian celebrity who is revered more than another believer. In my mind, the most important Christian I will ever meet is the "one that is right in front of me", so to speak. It is a shame when Christ's church needs someone of fame and fortune to give it credibility. I don't know if Tebow is a Christian or not, but if he is, he is a poor example to the rest of the body of Christ.

Like Frank I question the church asking Tebow to speak in the first place and my reason for saying this was his "spread" in QC magazine last year. Not too many years ago this sort of photo shoot would have been considered shall we say "unappropriate" and yet he continues to be asked to speak at churches such as this one in Dallas.

Well, let me put a slightly different spin on this, although I tend to agree with Tennessee Wise's comment. I would say that this fellow was invited to speak at this church probably "more" because he was rich and famous. I admit this is simply my opinion. Now if I am correct then that sort of mirrors being a respecter of persons because of his fame and notoriety?

So, Tebow did what the rich and famous do; protect their wealth and notoriety. My only concern would be the church inviting him in the first place. I checked their site and they have literally dozens of qualified pastors.

Tennessee wise,
I think you were a bit sharp on your critique of Tebow. This man has the scrutiny of a lot of people upon him. He is human like you and I. Peter denied Christ and he was with the Savior.

This young man must stick to the truth. I pray that he will not even consider to prioritise his career above the truth.

Timmy who's playbook are you going To use Gods or satans? Can't play on both teams. You had your defining moment serve God or mammon. You put yourself out there didn't you ever think there would be a time when you would have to put up or shut? The kneeling think was cute now we have to wear big boy pants.
