Will Tim Tebow Spark an American Revival?

The honest admit America is a gravely ill land – both emotionally and spiritually. We have become a licentious, rude, self-centered, illiterate, perverse, complaining, short-sighted, illogical, cold, impious, disloyal, greedy, bitter, materialistic, ungodly, gossiping, irreligious land full of idolatry. – Canada Free Press

America is in full-blown crisis. The continuous dysfunction in our government and culture at large reflect this. The American family has imploded and hundreds of millions are hooked on psychotropic drugs. Our national debt is a giant $15 trillion tumor on our economy while the welfare state explodes. Pornography is omnipresent, 80% of new diseases are STDs, while 50 million babies have been aborted. Our Arts have fallen into mindless depravity and utter darkness and cannot uplift their audience. Our ability to reason and debate have evaporated, leaving mindless emotions behind.


Despite the fact that nearly 80% of Americans claim to be Christians, as a society, we allow doubters to set the rules for daily life. Is Jesus dying in America? Perhaps Nietzsche was correct when he wrote: ” Whither is God?…We have killed him—you and I. All of us are his murderers.” In other words, we need revival.

A “revival” is defined as the bringing of new life to dead churches, institutions, persons and societies via the Holy Spirit. Great revivals in history have inordinately affected the West. For example, colonial historians claim the revival immediately preceding the American Revolution gave the Founders the logic, faith and bravery to defy England. The question asked in this essay is whether the exploits, character and religious affections of Timothy Richard Tebow might spark a return to our spiritual roots, and possibly save America from its current precipitous decline?
