I am still a little shell-shocked from the recent words that I heard come out of Pat Robertson’s mouth. Let’s assassinate the leader of Venezuela? Did I hear him right? Is this a bad dream? I am confused, angry, and discouraged.
Robertson has to be one of the most recognizable Evangelical Christians today, and yet what is he known for? What is his reputation? Is it one of honor and love for the unbeliever?
Which brings me to the reputation and impression the world is receiving of Christians in general: it ain’t pretty. It seems all I hear from Christians on TV is politically-oriented and it’s getting tiring. Shouldn’t we be talking more about Jesus Christ and Grace and Truth rather than the agenda we think is right for the country?
I hate to even bring up this topic because lately it seems like the popular, post-modern thing to do, but I just couldn’t help myself after this latest scene from the 700 Club. I have no answers or solutions. I’m not saying we shouldn’t be concerned about our country, it’s values…I just think we’re fighting the wrong enemy sometimes.
