Sunday morning

So Tim Tebow is continuing his preaching tour this Easter Sunday in Georgetown. It's starting to get on this Christian's nerves. Check out this quote from the pastor of Celebration Church, where he will spend 20 minutes speaking:

“There will be the sacredness of Easter. It's not a Tim Tebow show. It's not about a celebrity. There's really only one celebrity that we are going to honor and highlight,” added Pastor Champion.
Ok, so the hypocrisy is just dripping from this. And that's not even the real problem.

The problem is that he called Easter sacred.

The real problem is the fact that EVERY Sunday, God's people are supposed to be celebrating Christ's victory over death by keeping the day "holy" (you know, set apart). Instead, they only spend an average of 2 days out of the year pretending to remember His existence, much less all of His attributes, work and authority. So bringing Tebow in really isn't a surprise, even on Easter. Afterall, the rest of the year, most mainstream evangelical churches are just self-help clubs with a clever business model.

Funny thing is, if someone reads this, they will assume that I'm one of those nasty Tebow bashers...and then I will just point out to them that this post wasn't even about Tim Tebow
