Tebow - NFL Sport

  An interesting post about a Christian role model at the Vox Popoli blog. In case you are wondering what EPH 2:8-10 on the picture below means, it means Ephesians 2:8-10. Here it is for you:   "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." - Ephesians 2:8-9. Read it entirely here or below:
Michael Silver, who was never inclined to be a natural Tebow fan, nevertheless put together a short and interesting history of the Denver quarterback's remarkable season, beginning with his first start against the Dolphins:
I don't have a problem with what Tim Tebow's doing with [his outspoken Christianity]. I've seen him try to articulate why he has the belief and why he believes the things he does, in a very easy way to understand. He's not the guy, when the cameras are put in his face, saying, you know, "Praise to God, because he supernaturally let that ball hit my receiver!" You know what I mean? But he's up-front with it, and he makes many people uncomfortable. I do have a problem with what the Christian community is doing with his faith, that they are almost becoming a cult following. I think it's an "us" problem, not a "him" problem.
Like Dilfer, I have no problem with Tebow whatsoever. I still very much doubt his long-term future as a starting NFL quarterback, but I like him, wish him well, and have thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment he and his team provided last year. He is an excellent role model as a person, a player, and a competitor, but he is not a theologian, a prophet, a pastor, or a proof of the existence of God.
