UPDATE (10-01-22): Dr. Myles Monroe has something to say.
Everyone was talking about what Pat Robertson said.
Now everyone’s talking about what Donald Miller said.
Well, Brett McCracken has some thoughts. Here’s a quote:
We need to quit worrying about how the worst among us are ruining our reputation and instead focus on living Christ-like lives in accordance to scripture and God’s will. We need to worry about our own transformation first and foremost. Are we new creations?
We should love others and ease the suffering in the world… not because it will be better for our PR, but because the Bible tells us to and because the Spirit inside us spurs us to outward action. We should exude charity and patience and peace in our dealings with others not because it will win us admirers but because it is the Christian thing to do.
