An image shared on Facebook claims former NFL player Tim Tebow issued a long statement alleging the Bible predicts the rise of a “cashless society.”

Verdict: False

There is no evidence Tebow made this statement. It has circulated online for over a year without attribution.

Fact Check:

The message about the Bible predicting a cashless society, purportedly authored by Tebow, has circulated widely on social media in recent days. One iteration has garnered tens of thousands of shares as of press time.

“The government might be preparing us for a cashless society, but it was predicted by the bible. Already designed! If put into place this just means our time is getting closer,” the statement reads in part. The message goes on to claim the rapture could be soon and calls on the faithful to share the post.

While Tebow is a Christian and outspoken about his faith, there is no evidence he authored the post shared on Facebook. (RELATED: Did Marjorie Taylor Greene Say The Bible Is In English Because ‘Jesus Loves The US Most’?)

The message does not appear on Tebow’s personal website, or the website of his foundation, the Tim Tebow Foundation. Check Your Fact also searched Tebow’s verified social media accounts but found nothing resembling the post. There are likewise no credible news reports about Tebow saying the Bible foretold a “cashless society.”

An internet search reveals the statement dates back to at least July 2020, when it was shared on Facebook numerous times without attribution. A spokesperson for Tebow told Snopes that Tebow “did not author this.”

Tebow last played a regular-season game in the NFL in 2012 with the New York Jets, according to the Associated Press. He attempted a comeback over the summer, signing briefly with the Jacksonville Jaguars before being released in August, CNN reported.
