In My Humble Opinion….
….Tim Tebow is the most “visible” Christian of all time. Here’s why:
This dude is always being interviewed because he is the quarterback of Florida.
He plays in the SEC.
He led his his team to 2 national championships.
He won the Heisman Trophy.
(Not politically correct….) He is white.
He is charismatic (“larger than life.”) His nickname is “Superman.”
Here’s really why….
This is the digital age. Other Christian athletes, celebrities, etc., lived before the era of social media and YouTube. Never before has there been such potential for a global audience (and millions of “eyeballs….”)
But here’s the real reason….
Never before have we come across a person of this stature (and platform) who proclaimed his faith so adamantly.
He may not make it in the NFL, but he has already left his mark….
