Tim Tebow? Past Heisman Trophy winner? Possible two-time winner? Likely NFL QB? Missionary?
And you know the NFL…
the football league that plays most of its games on…
Well, here’s the question:
8 Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.
9 For six days you shall labour and do all your work.
10 But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall not do any work—you, your son or your daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the alien resident in your towns.
11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and consecrated it.
Okay – that’s not so much of a question per se as it is something that someone whose family makes a living off of recruiting people into christianity should see as mandating some sort of career that will not mandate that he work on Sunday.
And I’ll admit: I’m being a bit unfair to Tebow. He’s simply the (technically-future) highest profile person who, if said person actually has a belief in the inerrancy of the text of a certain book, should be willing to yield to that ‘inerrancy’ and forego however much money said person could make by working on Sunday.
What do you think will occur sooner: a professional football player speaking out against some aspect of LGB(T) rights as being contrary to the ‘word of god’…
or a college football player with both a professed belief in fundamentalist christianity and a guaranteed ticket to a pro football career foregoing the latter because it clearly conflicts with the former?
Bookies await, I’m sure.
