Warner to Tebow: Let your actions do talking

Tim Tebow's use of football as a platform for his Christian faith has been nearly as hot a topic as the way he has won football games for the Denver Broncos this season.

When Jake Plummer said he wanted to hear less of Tebow talking about Jesus, it set off a firestorm.

Now, former Rams, Giants and Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner, himself like Tebow a devout Christian, offered similar but perhaps subtle advice this week.

"There's almost a faith cliche, where (athletes) come out and say, 'I want to thank my Lord and savior,' " Warner told the Arizona Republic. "As soon as you say that, the guard goes up, the walls go up, and I came to realize you have to be more strategic.

"The greatest impact you can have on people is never what you say, but how you live. When you speak and represent the person of Jesus Christ in all actions of your life, people are drawn to that. You set the standard with your actions. The words can come after."
