It's Tebow Time – anyone, anywhere, anytime
Tebow’s a fantastic gentleman. As well as a darn good athlete having a work ethic that’s second to no one. God is an extremely important part of his life. The truth is Tim Tebow is a devout Christian who kneels openly saying thanks to Jesus Christ at the conclusion of every game — win or lose. In addition, Tebow, applied eyeblack with the phrase “John 3:16″; written on it in bright white letters while in the 2009 BCS Championship Game, a game in which they won.
Tim Tebow, for anyone who is not a football fan, was the renowned quarterback for the University of Florida’s football team before being drafted by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2010 draft. Tim Tebow found fame as a college quarterback for the Gator’s, in which he won the Heisman Trophy durning his sophomore season as well as two BCS National Championships. In spite of this, it was a surprise to many when Denver selected the well-known QB in the first round but Tebow may surprise everyone again and become a very good NFL quarterback.
After being drafted and during the Broncos preseason training, several Broncos players thought it would be funny to cut Tebow’s hair to look like a halo or “friar haircut” as part of the rookie “hazing” process. Tim Tebow’s reaction to his hazing was predictable. He said, “I’m here. I’m here to work. I don’t care about my hair.”
Tebow has every right to demonstrate his spiritual commitment and it has made believers out of hundreds of thousands in more ways than one. Some would maintain Tebow’s openly public demonstrations of prayer aren’t “look-at-me” moments but “look-at-God” ones. He’s not simply an excellent young man and missionary but he has helped to construct a hospital through his Tim Tebow foundation, in the Philippines where by a great deal of needy individuals will be given free treatment.
Though, God has supplied each and every player on the field significant amounts of football playing ability. The almighty might not exactly care about football games per se. Nevertheless, Tebow’s public displays of his religious beliefs has received plenty of fans and critics.
I feel that religion is profoundly personal, and some think it shouldn’t be publicized. But why? There was once Athletes in Action, a collegiate basketball team which was largely Christian and independent. Faith Christian boys basketball coach Andrew Hasz helped lead his team on to four Class 3A state titles, but stated that the team’s Religious belief isn’t “a magic potion to win games” but alternatively the chance to worship the lord in a different way.
Tebow speaks about his religious beliefs, runs a foundation, does charitable work with impoverished nations around the world and appeared within a Super Bowl advertisement about abortion that didn’t mention the term “abortion.” He doesn’t just speak about Christianity, he lives it. It is my contention, Tebow has each and every right to show his spiritual devotion as well as others to share in it, for fun or otherwise. Regardless, Tebow’s faith has ever resonated with the greater public and has gave way to that which we call “Tebowing.”
In conclusion, Tebow is a committed Christian and will likely continue to attract numerous fans as well as critics. Tebow has generated plenty of discussion and the man can use the Christian narrative of faith tested by trial not simply to deal with adversity, but to succeed in spite of it.
