[843 Acres] THE Super Bowl Ad

by Neal

Google “Super Bowl Ad” this year and you won’t find links about frivolous humor but rather plenty on CBS’ decision to air a Focus on the Family anti-abortion ad featuring Tim Tebow. I’m not going to share my opinion that abortion is wrong, that CBS should indeed air the ad, and that Focus on the Family was right to pay millions for the spot (oops, I guess I did). Instead, I’m going to declare my love for Tim Tebow. Again.

It’s popular to hate him but I love him. I love that Tebow stands behind his beliefs. He’s a Heisman trophy winner about to enter the NFL and he spends his free time doing missions work in Asia as well as in prisons (this video is a must see). He lives his faith. It’s unmistakable. From the bible verses on his face to doing a Super Bowl ad against abortion, there’s nothing lukewarm about his faith. How many of us Christians can say that?

What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. James 2:14-17, NIV.
