Football star Tim Tebow was scheduled to make a speech in April at the First Baptist Church in Dallas. However, he has decided to cancel this engagement after all. According to TMZ on Feb. 21, the well-known Christian has officially pulled himself from speaking at this controversial platform.
The controversy surrounding the church comes from the preacher, Dr. Robert Jeffress, who has been known for denouncing both gays and Jews. Reports surfaced on this issue after Tebow was announced to be a speaker this spring. This brought questions on whether the NFL player had the exact same views as the church does.
Tebow must have gotten wind of it and just tweeted that he has pulled out of it. He wrote on his Twitter, "While I was looking forward to sharing a message of hope and Christ's unconditional love with the faithful members of the historic First Baptist Church of Dallas in April, due to new information that has been brought to my attention, I have decided to cancel my upcoming appearance."
Tim Tebow has a good head on his shoulders and seems to be out to share his faith, not to judge others. He is trying to make good choices in both his personal life and his Christian faith as well. He will be sure to add more controversy in whatever he chooses to do from both sides of this issue.
Does this change the way you view Tim Tebow as a person who is known for his faith in God?
