I almost couldn’t believe it. While in a store, minding my own business buying some underwear, the news announces the backpedaling damage control that the latest bull issued by Pat Robertson has necessitated.
He has completely crossed the line now. There is no excuse or rationalization that I will care to make for Robertson or anything he has to say, now.
He no longer speaks for Christians as a group. He no longer represents evangelicals, because, most importantly, he has moved away from the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We all wish someone dead at some time or another… most of us fail in our anger that way at some point. But we recognize it as failure, as sin, as needing repentence.
Bring out the sackcloth and ashes, since he has no shame to say such things, we need some humility and shame to repent for them, ourselves….
Let this be a warning to all Christians. We need to learn how to bridle our tongues and speak with wisdom and circumspection.
“I don’t know about this doctrine of assassination”-Pat Robertson.
Well, Mr. , you ought to know….. you ought to know before broadcasting it.
