Those who were for Tim Tebow to step into the political realm will have to wait. The Heisman Trophy winner and former Denver Bronco and New York Jet set the record straight on Thursday evening about rumors that circulated earlier in the day that he would be speaking at the Republican National Convention.

Tebow said in a video post on Instagram that those rumors are just that – rumors.

“I just got back from the Philippines and I wake up this morning to find out that I’m speaking at the Republican National Convention,” Tebow said. “It’s amazing how fast rumors fly. And that’s exactly what it is, a rumor.”

That doesn’t mean Tebow is ruling out a political career at some point.

“My goal has always been to make a difference in the biggest way possible,” he continued. “If one day if I feel like that’s through the political realm, then that’s what I’ll do.”

Bur for those hoping it would be in support of Donald Trump at next week’s RNC, they’ll have to settle for Tebow’s philanthropic work.

“Right now that’s through my foundation and our amazing partners, and fighting for kids that can’t fight for themselves.”

Tebow did use the opportunity to evangelize and share a message of unity through faith.

“I love our country and I would do anything for America. And one of the things I love most is that it’s one nation under God. And you know what that means? It means you matter. That God has a plan for your life and that every single person is significant. We all matter.

“So let’s come together on that. Let’s unite on that. Let’s forget about our quarrels and our differences and let’s come together, on one nation under God – that you matter, that he loves you, that he has a plan for your life.”

Tebow has always been outspoken about his faith, and this opportunity to shed light on a rumor was no different. He did, however, end his post with a tried and true political closing:

“God bless you and God bless America!”
