Some thoughts I shared on Facebook tonight on the whole uproar over World Vision today:
When all is said and done Jesus spoke pretty plainly on what the litmus test was going to be before the judgement seat of Christ…It would be whether or not we fed and clothed the hungry, invited the stranger and foreigner in, and took care of the sick and those imprisoned. This is the gospel. This is the Good News we are to proclaim and live out. As it happens World Vision is living out the gospel daily for those in desperate need of the Good News that Jesus brought. I would prayerfully ask you to consider joining me donating to them tonight to help make up for the funding they are sadly losing from Christians so distracted by the issue of gay marriage that they are forgetting that the above is God’s priority. Though to be honest I have to say that pulling funding from a company that takes a stand to treat ALL of their employees with dignity and respect (to provide insurance so that when they are sick they can seek healing, so that they can have gainful employment and not go hungry) is not how you spread the gospel (because it is not the gospel). The gospel is not a culture war. Let’s forget the culture war and wash feet instead.
What I did not include was: I’m so over this shit already.
