You're Not Helping Pat

I just read what Pat Robertson said about the tragic events in Haiti ... and I don't know what to say but, "ZIP IT PAT! Please, for the sake of Christ - You're not helping! Your words are like daggers into the hearts of those who are down."

I feel the same as Jim Wallis, a prominent progressive Christian leader, who said, "As a Christian leader, I have had to spend too much of my time trying to overcome an image of Christianity that was created by the likes of Pat Robertson," he wrote. "When evil strikes, it's easy to ask, where is God. The answer: God is suffering in the midst of the evil with those who are suffering."

This kind of stuff is what drives people far far away from Christ ... when we Christians open our silly mouths and spew stupid stuff... especially at a time like this... these people need our prayers, and our help!

I heard someone say that "what Pat said is actually factual...", and my thought there is then his timing is WAY OFF! It would be like walking up to the scene of an accident and telling the bloodied victim in the car crash, "your hair is messed up!" Just not a good time to share that, even if it's true. So in my estimation he is wrong on all fronts here!

Colossians 4:6 "Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone." - NLT

Again, as with anything I say here on my blog - it is just MY OPINION and we are all entitled to one!
