If Tim Tebow can heal the sick, why is he selfishly spending his time playing sports?

Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophecy when the council of elders laid their hands on you. — 1 Timothy 4:14

New York Mets minor leaguer Tim Tebow saved a man’s life on Tuesday just by touching him.

Some facts:

  • Approximately 6,775 people die in the United States each day.
  • Approximately 151,000 people die throughout the world each day.

Here are Tim Tebow’s stats for the day: 0-for-3, 1 life saved, 150,999 left to die. That’s a pretty bad day by any measure. If he was a closer, that would be more than 150,000 blown saves in one day. As a batter, he basically went 1-for-150,003 on the day. That’s a .00000666 batting average. Yeah, that’s right. Six six six. Says a lot.

Many know that Tebow has saved lives before. This is an established skill that the man has.

So why has he spent the last seven years of his life throwing inaccurate passes and hitting weak ground balls against minor leaguers? Let’s be real: there is no record in the Bible of Jesus playing sports. Sure, he did some carpentry, but that was a minor side gig at most.

If Tebow can save the lives of everyone in the world, doesn’t the decision to fill his days running shirtless through rainstorms, taking BP and talking about overrated SEC football teams on TV — while only bothering to save lives when the afflicted just so happens to be on his flight or in the first row of one of his games — actually make him a terrible person?

“With great power comes great responsibility.” — Uncle Ben to Spider-Man

That quote does not mean that Tebow has a responsibility to use his power to try to hit 20 home runs next season with Single-A St. Lucie Mets. It means that as a superhero — like Spider-Man — he must use his powers to save the world.

Right now he is not doing that.

Tim Tebow: bad NFL quarterback, worse man.
