I’ve been in far too many conversations about this site already. Almost all negative. The problem is, it’s not our place to criticize. Unfortunately, social media makes it far too easy to spout off our opinions without thinking or even having an educated opinion.
I’m not sure if this is besmirching the name of Christ. I get negative feelings about it – especially after seeing news reports about it. But the Holy Spirit (through the Bible) never told us not to build fashion sites for pastors. He did tell us to mind our own business and to be gracious (1 Thessalonians 4:11 and Colossians 4:6).
Now let’s move on to the pastor that suggested we put all homosexuals behind an electric fence. Want to hear something shocking? I love that man. Not because I agree with him. But because, like it or not, he is my family. And I’m commanded to love him.
Almost every family has a racist/drunk uncle. Pastor Worley is like our racist/drunk uncle. You don’t go around publicly hating on the guy. You love him…but live a life that shows you’re different. It’s not love if you publicly distance yourself from him and criticize him.
So maybe Ed Young is your embarrassing uncle. We don’t need to attack him. We don’t need to attack each other. The Church is a Body. If the Body is slicing itself up we have problems.
There’s room for debate. But never let it turn into criticism.
I apologize if this is a rant. I don’t normally rant. My goal is love. That should be every believer’s goal.
