What Do You Think of the Tebow Jesus Jersey?


I watched Tim Tebow’s high school football career with great interest. With his strong, competent mother, and homeschool lobbyist Brenda Dickinson, Tebow broke new ground for Florida homeschoolers participating in extracurricular activities. His struggle for equal opportunity sparked debate about an all-or-nothing versus use-what-you-can approach to public educational resources.

When he graduated high school and moved on to college sports, I lost interest. I’m not a football fan. Of course, I’ve been vaguely aware of his public faith and I’ve suffered through more than one lively conversation about his playing style.

Now the latest fan rage is Denver Broncos jerseys, bearing Tebow’s number 15 and the name Jesus instead of Tebow. Really? So, just what are we saying here?

See the jersey HERE.

The problem with human heroes is that they’re human. Sooner or later, intentionally or not, Tebow’s going to mess up. Will his fans be able to separate the sinner from the Savior?

Some Christians like the Tebow/Jesus shirts. Tebow openly shares his faith, so why shouldn’t they capitalize on his success to share their faith?

Others think the shirts disrespect the name of Jesus. What do you think?

  1. “He must increase, I must decrease,” John the Baptist said of Jesus. Tim witnesses in prisons and everywhere else he can. He promotes Jesus constantly. I’m sure he feels he owes everything to Jesus and is honored to bear His name to the world. I love that darlin Tim Tebow like a son.

  2. I think as a Christian he should stand up and say enough is enough. I am not Jesus and please quit using my God as a gimik.
