Kurt Warner Tells Tim Tebow To Stop Talking About Jesus
“And a man’s foes [shall be] they of his own household.” Matthew 10:36
Talking about Jesus makes people nervous. It even makes other Christians nervous sometimes, too. Such is the case with ex-Cardinal QB Kurt Warner, who recently had some advice to give to up and coming Jesus-loving, Denver quarterback Tim Tebow. His advice to the mighty man of God? Stop talking about Jesus. Here is Warner’s exact quote:
“There’s almost a faith cliche, where (athletes) come out and say, ‘I want to thank my Lord and savior.’ As soon as you say that, the guard goes up, the walls go up, and I came to realize you have to be more strategic.
“You can’t help but cheer for a guy like that,” Warner said of Tebow. “But I’d tell him, ‘Put down the boldness in regards to the words, and keep living the way you’re living. Let your teammates do the talking for you. Let them cheer on your testimony.’
“I know what he’s going through, and I know what he wants to accomplish, but I don’t want anybody to become calloused toward Tim because they don’t understand him, or are not fully aware of who he is. And you’re starting to see that a little bit.” NBC Sports
Isn’t it funny that when you really, truly stand for Jesus, the people who attack you? My advice to you, Kurt, is to be quiet yourself and remember the beatdown that the Steelers gave you last time you met in the Super Bowl. And my advice to you, Tim Tebow, is to keep talking about Jesus EXACTLY the way you have been. Don’t change one, single thing. SHOUT IT FROM THE TOP OF THE ASTRODOME that Jesus is coming back soon!!
If ever in my life I have seen someone being used mightily of God for their public testimony, it’s you. And if 1,000 Kurt Warners all tell you to “stop talking about Jesus”, don’t you pay them any heed even for one moment. Mr. Tebow, you are God’s man in the right place at the right time doing the right things. You are truly a ‘man on a mission’, so KEEP IT UP, and may the Denver Miracle continue…
