Ask a Pastor 7/15/2019

One of the struggles of living in the Christian world is the inability of many Christians to be flexible about their beliefs.  This is due, in no small part, to the enlightenment, coupled with “modernity” and its belief or philosophy that we can know everything as humans.  So science can tell us everything we need to know about the world or the Bible tells us everything we need to know about God. This was of course the response of mankind to the middle or the “dark” ages where only a few special people, whether they were kings or priests, held the keys to knowledge or spirituality.

Falwell Jr and the spiritual call to “grow a pair”

And here we go again!  Talking about Jerry Jr. on the Holman Report.  But yet again, he tweeted something out so ridiculous, that Liberty Alumni everywhere talked feverishly about it for days.  I did too.  It created an epic case study for what conservatism has become, which is namely, not so conservative.  I remember hearing years ago about the immorality of the liberal left, and their course mouths and their delight for all things anti-God and anti church.  Welcome to 2019!  The time period where we don’t have flying cars, but we do have leaders of Christian colleges calling other pastors to “grow a pair” on social media.

Those we follow

But why did Falwell Jr. Go gung ho with guns a blazin’ for Presidential Candidate Donald Trump? Why did Ted Haggard come out as a leading opponent of legislation legalizing same sex marriage in the United States when he had been practicing homosexuality for years? Why am I just now writing the things I’m writing for the Holman Report, despite the fact that I’ve believed them since the mid 2000’s?
