Tim Tebow

15,000 Show Up

for His Easter Sermon

4/8/2012 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tim Tebow delivers a sermon.
A crowd of nearly 15,000 gathered at an outdoor Easter church service in Georgetown, TX today, where New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow was the main attraction. 

Some of the crowd came from as far as 100 miles away. Pastor Joe Champion said, "In Christianity, it's the Pope and Tebow right now. We didn't have enough room to handle the Pope."

Tebow preached that it was important for people to be outspoken about their faith (never a problem for Tim) and that athletes are role models, whether they like it or not.

According to local reports, several hundred people left after Tebow finished speaking ... not even staying for the pastor's main Sunday sermon.

Great now Tebowz is telling his flock of Fat sheep that it was important for people to be outspoken about their faith.
Now these brainwashed children are going to be more aggressive about there fairy tale bible and bug us all even more.
Yeah right, I'm going to believe some people that wrote scripture for the bible 2000 years ago who thought the World was flat. Then the Protestants and Catholics re-worded the scriptures for Bible to fit their own agenda.

Tim Tebow is quickly becoming a very annoying young man who is also quite full of himself. It's nice he has all this time to go to Oscar's party's and has time to preach. Maybe if he spent more of the off season working on his real job as an NFL QB he could work on his passing, at less than 50% completions he is one of the worst in the NFL. Enough of the Tebowing already, this guy is going to be an NFL version of Kim Kardashian, people are already sick of him

I absolutely love this!! Tim Tebow is such an inspiration to everyone and he loves his God which is the most awesome thing anyone can do! He isnt just a football player, but a servant of God! Most football players are only seen out getting drunk or going to jail or stealing or some dumb **** like that! God Bless!

God is GOOD!!! Thank you Heavenly Father for using Tim Tebow as a great roll model for you! Father forgive them...for they know not what they do. They mocked and crucified You...they will mock us when we stand for You. Everyone teaches tolerance, but NO ONE tolerates the one who says JESUS IS LORD!!!

He's soooo HOT...even in that pink shirt! There's a magnetic pull towards an outspoken 'Christian' man….as far as I’m concerned. Yummy!

i don't like when people preach . religion should remain something personal . he should decide what to do, if he wants to play football go for it,but if he wants to be there and preach and talk about religion then he should be a pastor and not a football player.. i don't like it when celebrities or athletes try to do both at the same time.mae up your mind tebow!

OK, this guy wins football games and kneels and prays in front of everybody, so people believe there is a direct correlation. I beleive the Bible says that you should pray in secret so that your father who hears in secret will reward you, but if you pray as a public spectacle, you will just have the reward of being a spectacle.


People believe what they want to believe though. People think that Christianity is as simple as winning a football game and then giving thanks to God, like he is involved in betting. Combining gambling and Christianity is wrong right off the bat. I think people just want to believe that there is an easy way around keeping the law when there isn't. I think they want to believe that contending for the faith is as easy as being a football star who does his victory gesture, when that is not true either.


Kids who imitated this guy in their school hallways got suspended for it. His example will only work for him. I don't see it working for the rest of the people who find him an inspiration. I think God might even be laughing at him. I don't know but I don't think that a miracle would be who wins a silly game, but maybe some horrible event turning around thanks to prayer.


Christianity is like a big clown show any more. I think that the real Christians are despised and outcast and struggle every day. Jesus said that the world hated him first so it will hate his followers also. The world seems to love this guy, so is this real faith?
