Tim Tebow is not Messiah

Tim Tebow is not the Messiah nor is he anyone's pastor. It would do him, us and the unbelieving world well if we would stop treating him(and other Christian celebrities) as such. (If it seems as if I am exaggerating a bit, consider many of the comments on the news stories surrounding this story and/or the level of annoyance you are feeling right now at my comment). Trueman has some great thoughts on Tebow's canceling his FBC appearance.
"we really should try not to make such figures into those to whom we look for leadership and guidance. That role should be fulfilled by the elders in your local church and the experienced saints whom you know personally and with whom you have an actual relationship."
Indeed!
