No matter where you turn people are talking about Tim Tebow. Songs are being written about him, mothers are hoping their daughters will marry him, and people who never followed the NFL are sudden fans. I even heard a political pundit suggest the GOP should nominate him for president. And there are those who oppose and make fun of his core beliefs and resent the amount of press coverage he is receiving. There is no middle ground where the Denver Broncos quarterback is concerned.
I was interviewed this week by the Pensacola News Journal about this young man whose life inspires and infuriates. The argument is fascinating to me.
So why is Tim Tebow such a polarizing figure? The answer is simple.
He is a devout follower of Jesus.
And Jesus always…always is the dividing line.
