Why So Hateful?

Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow

Some people love to hate Tim Tebow. For some reason, the Heisman trophy winner and former NFL quarterback incurs the wrath of many. The venom they spew is vicious, and it comes for no apparent reason.

Tebow was even harshly criticized recently for praying with the wife of a man who had a medical emergency on a plane! The woman seemed to appreciate Tebow’s prayer, but the haters condemned him for intruding at such a sensitive time.

Why do so many people show such ridiculous hatred for Tim Tebow? It is simply because he is a follower of Jesus Christ—there is no other reason.

We shouldn’t be surprised at this. If you were a popular figure, they would hate you too. It is because they don’t understand why we don’t join them in their lives of rebellion against God. 1 Peter 4:4 says, “They are surprised that you do not join them in their reckless, wild living, and they heap abuse on you.”

It doesn’t make sense. But then why would we expect that people who reject Jesus would make any sense at all?
