It's a shame whenever true Christians speak out against what is wrong, we find out whom will not want anything to do with you, because they allegedly choose popularity over righteousness. SCR readers, we are living in a time when many celebrities whom profess salvation are allegedly revealing whose side they are really on when it comes to Salvation. NFL Quarterback, Tim Tebow has cancelled his appearance at First Baptist Church of Dallas, because of the controversy, which has to do with Dr. Robert Jeffress stance on gay marriage, allegedly.
You see, this is why we never want to waste time listening to the average celebrity who claims to be a Christian these days, many of them are followers and not born leaders. Do any of them even know what it means to be a Christian? It means you have to face persecution for Jesus Christ before the world, regardless who does not like it and regardless who employs you. It means you must publicly deny sin and be willing to die for Christ. We would hate to be in Tim Tebow's place if Jesus should walk away and say, 'Depart from Me, I never knew you (Matthew 7:23).' You may say why would Jesus say those words, because in Luke 9:26 the Word of God says: 'For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.' This is why when we become saved, we must follow the God's commandments to separate from the world, which is what it clearly says in I John 2:15, 'Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.' If any profession allegedly causes us to back down from being seen among the true saints of God against sin, then it is time to stop for Christians to no longer associate with certain associations, which may include a celebrity status. We say shame on Tim Tebow and any other NFL player who does not want to be seen in God's House that stands against sin, according to God's Word.
In the meantime, we will pray for Tebow's soul and sincerely hope he repents before it is everlasting too late. Also, we pray for God give Dr. Robert Jeffress strength in this wicked hour of our nation.
