Tim Tebow has canceled his speaking engagement at the First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas. Tebow was scheduled to speak on April 28 at 9:15 a.m. during a Sunday worship service, but he has now decided to withdraw due to new information that has been brought to Tebow's attention.
"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. I will continue to use the platform God has blessed me with to bring Faith, Hope and Love to all those needing a brighter day. Thank you for all of your love and support. God Bless!"
When the news first broke that Tebow was scheduled to appear at First Baptist Church of Dallas in April it raised more than a few eyebrows. The church has drawn much criticism over Dr. Robert Jeffress and his controversial ways.
Jeffress has spoken out numerous times in the past against Jews, Mormons, Muslims and homosexuals.
While Tebow has never shied away from controversy with regards to his beliefs, this looks like the right move for the Jets QB to not speak.
