Hearts of fans of pro-life hero and Christian role model† Tim Tebow broke last night when the New England Patriots rolled over the Denver Broncos, 45-10, emphatically eliminating them from the play-offs.

But as Tebow said after the game, “Regardless of whether I win, whether I lose, whether I’m the hero or goat, I still honor the Lord.”

Tebow’s devotion his Lord has opened the door for wild evangelistic venues. Take this January 10 CNN piece, written last week after the Broncos beat the heavily favored Pittsburgh Steelers:

The completion gave Tebow, an outspoken evangelical Christian whose penchant for last-minute heroics have given him a reputation as a miracle worker, 316 passing yards for the game. His ten completions averaged 31.6 yards a piece.

Those figures inspired plenty of conversation and debate about a connection some saw to one of the most famous verses in the Bible, John 3:16.

The New Testament verse is held up by Christians around the globe because it neatly summarizes some key points of Christianity: ďFor God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whosoever believes in him would not perish but have eternal life.”…

The verse is popular with Christians looking to share their faith because it’s short and information-packed: God loves humankind, man has sinned and is destined for eternal punishment, but eternal live awaits all who believe in God’s son, Jesus.
