Tebow in Babylon

Tebow in Babylon

Ross Douthat for The New York Times on Tim Tebow’s trade to the Babylon-upon-the-Hudson” Jets:

Why is Tim Tebow such a fascinating and polarizing figure? Not just because he claims to be religious; that claim is commonplace among football stars and ordinary Americans alike. Rather, it’s because his conduct — kind, charitable, chaste, guileless — seems to actually vindicate his claim to be in possession of a life-altering truth.

Nothing discredits religion quite like the gap that often yawns between what believers profess and how they live….He fascinates, in part, because he behaves — at least in public, and at least for now — the way one would expect more Christians to behave if their faith were really true.

Imagine what would happen if all Christians who claimed to possess life-altering truth had truly altered lives.
