“Got a sneak-peek of @TheShackMovie last night. Great reminder that God is with us in our highs and lows and LOVES us no matter what! #TheShack,” the former Florida Heisman Trophy-winner tweeted on Friday.

Tebow attended an early screening of the film and although the book is highly controversial, the 29 year old praised the movie for highlighting God’s love.

Among his 3.65 million followers on Twitter, some responded to his tweet in agreement with his statement and others and disagreed with Tebow.

“I can’t support this movie nor have I the book. Scripturally unsound,” a comment read, echoing the sentiments of many others.

Another person responded to Tebow’s comment about film by saying, “Tim, I’m surprised that you would endorse this unbiblical book/movie. I could hardly finish the book. Threw it away.”
