Tim Tebow Super Bowl commercial will air after we reported two days ago about the Tim Tebow Super Bowl Ad and Romans 1:16. While the Tim Tebow Super Bowl commercial has not yet been released to the public, it is already causing controversy.
The Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad is one of the first advocacy ads accepted by CBS during the big game. In the past, groups such as PETA and MoveOn.org were refused air time. With regard to the Tim Tebow Super Bowl commercial, CBS spokesperson Dana McClintock stated, “We have for some time moderated our approach to advocacy submissions after it became apparent that our stance did not reflect public sentiment or industry norms. In fact, most media outlets have accepted advocacy ads for some time."
As we discussed, the Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad is purported to include Tebow and his mother discussing her decision not to have an abortion. His mom had a life-threatening infection and opted to have her baby. Her fifth child was born healthy and named “Timmy”. Tim Tebow grew up to become a fantastic football player leading the University of Florida team to national championships in 2006 and 2008.
Despite the fact CBS changed their policy about advocacy ads, groups are opposing the Tim Tebow Super Bowl commercial including The Women's Media Center. A Facebook group in opposition to the Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad has over 7,000 members.
Even before the Tim Tebow Super Bowl commercial, the football player proudly showed his faith. Tim Tebow wore bible verses in his eye black. Tim Tebow grew up near Jacksonville, Florida and attended the First Baptist Church.
In honor of this fine young man and the Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad, here is Romans 1:16 again:
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
