Great post from Jared Wilson on the recent advice that Tim Tebow’s been getting of late to stop talking about Jesus so much:
There are a few problems with this advice:
- It assumes Tim isn’t already “being a good person.”
- It assumes one can simply imply the gospel with actions and it be understood.
- It assumes that the gospel isn’t offensive, really, but is made so through verbalizing it too much.
All of those assumptions are incorrect. Clearly for Tebow . . . speaking the gospel and demonstrating its implications is not an either/or proposition. He rightly understands you cannot do one without the other.
