If you’ve been online today, chances are you’ve seen something about the latest debacle over a Christian standing up for their beliefs.
First let me say this.
We stand with the Robertson family! They have my complete support and admiration in this time of persecution!
Now I have to tell you, I don’t watch the show (We don’t have cable)
I have, however, caught glimpses of it in the Christian bookstore and I’ve seen Uncle Si in the new Veggie Tales “A Very Merry Larry”. I respect this family for standing together for their beliefs! And there is absolutely NOTHING I’ve seen or read or heard about the family that makes me feel as horrified or disgusted as I feel about the “writer” who penned the article that started all of this.
When did it become OK to cuss so blatantly in an interview that’s going to be printed in a magazine – a magazine that anyone can pick up and read?
And why is the “writer” so shocked by this man’s profession of his beliefs? Their faith is a big part of who the Robertson’s are. Every Christian who lives by the Bible and actually believes what it teaches should proudly stand up and say the exact same thing he said (maybe not as colorfully but essentially the same)
And I’ll say this. He’s right. It’s not logical.
However, I will give them this… It is in their DNA. Sin is in everyone’s DNA. We are ALL sinners. Some people allow lies into their hearts, some allow lust. Some allow murder and some allow thievery. Every sin is the same in God’s eyes and every sin is just as much washed clean with God’s forgiveness.
And that is all he was saying.
It is not in our power to judge the sin or the sinner. We love the person but not their sin and I think that is a much better concession than the people who “accept” someone the way they are but don’t really care about them or their souls.
God Bless the Robertsons!
