I Am Puzzled!
It seems that we are in a mad race to the bottom of the barrel in evangelicalism, what with the notoriety in recent days of so-called “ministers of the Gospel” drawing our attention to marriage and sex. I get the fact that not everyone thinks that these guys are wrong. But I don’t understand why there isn’t a louder protest of this shameful pandering to the world’s agenda. Thankfully there have been some, but not nearly enough, in my opinion!
I get the fact that many Christians can use help in these areas. But is a “what wrong with _____” chapter or a “bed-in” really the solution? Do we need to add a class for our students counseling the sexually dysfunctional? Do pastors need to become sexperts?
How is it a nationally recognized speaker can excoriate a photographer in front of perhaps 500 witnesses for taking pictures during his public presentation, but that same voice can not withdraw his approval publicly from this kind of
Christian voyuerism? I guess the gospel covers a multitude of sins! How is that we can get together for the gospel, but we cannot lift our voices together before a reprobate world that enough is enough! How about a conference on true spirituality? Where is Isaiah when we need him? Is there anyone who will throw the money changers out of the temple?
Maybe this is the real elephant in the evangelical room. We have no real voice in the darkening world, just a cacophony of confusion. Ichabod!
