Discover Ministry Briefing! --> The Best Way To Keep "In The Know"!
I wondered how long it would take…
How long it would take before the Rick Warren haters took the news of this weekend to spread hate (in the name of Jesus, of course).
Well, USA Today picked up on some “Christians” response to Rick Warren’s son’s suicide.
And it makes me ill.
From the article:
…a shocking number are taking this moment of media attention to lash out at Warren on the digital tom-toms. The attacks are aimed at him personally and at his Christian message. Some unbelievers want to assure Rick and Kay Warren, his wife and Matthew’s bereaved mother, that there’s no heaven where they’ll meet their son again.
There are many people that I don’t agree with. Especially theologically.
But to go after them, personally, at such a time as this is overtly unchristian.
This heartless, vitriolic, self-righteous rhetoric is about as far from Christlikeness as you can get.
PS – Why do you think people do this and feel that they are speaking for God and righteousness?
