Tebow Mania

It works, it really, really works! I was updating my computer when it suddenly froze up. So I wrote the name Tebow on a piece of paper, knelt down and did the Tebow pose and just like that, my computer started working again!

As quarterback of the Denver Broncos Tim Tebow has led his team from below average to playoff contender. Many of the wins have featured dramatic, last-minutes comebacks led by the NFL’s newest star. After big plays Tebow is often seen on the sidelines “Tebowing” kneeling on one knee with his head bowed.

One of the reasons Tebow has become so popular is because people want to believe in something. Our yearly attempts at having “the best Christmas ever” indicate that, despite our skepticism, most of us like to believe in something.

The key word is something, meaning just one, not too specific or demanding thing. Secular culture does not inspire belief because it wants us to believe in everything, something we just can’t do. People believing in just one specific thing would make secular culture collapse because it would make us far too independent and would sell far too few products.

As a football player he is not too specific or demanding. He is not one of those demanding types; teachers, parents, policitcians and preachers. Tebow inspires us but does not make demands of us. We can just go on living life on our own terms.

Tebow’s Christian faith states that there is just one big thing, Jesus Christ, the Son of God and Savior of the world. He mounted the all time greatest comeback by rising from the dead three days after being crucified. The Bible’s Tim Tebow, aka the Apostle Paul, states that without Jesus’ resurrection the Christian faith is worthless and we are still in our sins.

Did Tebow really make my computer start working again? Stranger things have happened. Jesus really did rise from the dead thus making him the one person worthy of our complete trust.
