When I first heard that Randy White, the former pastor of Without Walls International Church, was nabbed over the weekend on a DUI charge, I admit my first thought was judgment.
But when I saw the online mugshot, my heart turned more to a heart of compassion.
No doubt, Randy has over the years preached a false prosperity gospel message.
And much of the inner workings at what used to be a huge church, were, well… at least a little suspect.
And when you drink and drive (which, in my opinion is one of the most self-indulgent activities one can do), you pay the consequences.
But when I saw the mugshot… I saw a man that isÂ desperatelyÂ in need of help.
Many times, we’re too busy pointing fingers at people to help them.
I still think Randy has been wrong in so many ways. Â But my compassionate side says this is a brother that needs help. Â I hope there is someone in his life or community that can provide that for him.
Randy… I prayed for you today. Â Honestly, I’m not sure what else to do.
