I agree it was the easy road for him. But it might not have been God's plan yet or Tim could have been following his own will.
Honestly I am surprised the pressure hasn't made him collapse. Im sure he knows if he slips up once(sex, alcohol, lies) and is caught he will be hammered repeatedly by the media and all those who are intolerant of Christianity.
Jesus spoke to crowds during the Sermon on the Mount
“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”
Jesus Christ said to his disciples
“I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues. On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
I have been crucified with Christ, it is no longer I who live but Christ lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.
