Tim Tebow Named One Of World's Most Influential People

The great influence that Tim Tebow had on the Broncos and on the city of Denver is undeniable.

From the comeback wins on the field to his charitable endeavors off the field, Tebow has touched the lives of many. Now Time magazine is naming him one of the most influential people in the world. Time selects 100 of the most influential people in the world every year, and this year Tebow is mentioned along side Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Chris Christie.

Fellow New York superstar athlete, Jeremy Lin, of the New York Knicks wrote up Tebow’s paragraph for the magazine.

Watching Tim Tebow play football, you can observe many things about his character. You see his fierce competitiveness, his strong work ethic and how he is a leader that his teammates trust and respect.

But it is the qualities that Tim, 24, embodies in his life off the field that truly set him apart. He is unashamed of his convictions and faith, and he lives a life that consistently reflects his values, day in and day out. – Jeremy Lin (Time) 

All of the other athletes on the list come from outside of the United States.

    Tim Tebow’s influence, whatever it may be, is limited to a certain segment of a dying, fringe population – Christians. He uses Christianity to promote himself on the football field and some Christians try to cash in on his celebrity to promote religion. His “tebowing” antics  on the football field is not unlike a small, attention-seeking child shouting: “Look at me, look at me. I’m a proud Christian. Did you get a picture of me bowing to my lord?” It’s self-serving and boring. I could do without it.
