Tebow: Autographing the Bible

Bible from 1150 AD    (Public Domain)
It seems as though Tim Tebow never tires of publicly proclaiming his faith.

On the one hand, the Bible encourages public proclamations.     As part of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20), Jesus states. “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…” 

However, this Commission includes a very sacred activity:  baptism “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”

Recently, Tim Tebow autographed a fan’s Holy Bible.  Was this done in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit?  Or did it simply focus upon Tebow's own "John Hancock"?

It is one thing to make disciples of God, and quite another to lure "moths" to the fame flame.  That is probably why Jesus recommends in Matthew 6:5-6 that you not pray “like the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray… on the street corners [and on the football fields?] so that they may be seen by men…”
