Christian Misjudgement, Christian Failure

From Marinov:

Yes. That’s why American evangelicalism is losing ground.

“In 1998, Graham wrote an essay in the Wall Street Journal arguing that even Bill Clinton’s private sins can have serious, public consequences. He rightfully asked the key question: “If [Clinton] will lie to or mislead his wife and daughter, those with whom he is most intimate, what will prevent him from doing the same to the American public?”

But in 2018 he reversed course. When the philandering Democrat Bill Clinton was out of office, and the philandering Republican Donald Trump occupied the White House, Graham told the Associated Press that the Republican pursuit of Clinton was a “great mistake that should never have happened.” He resurrected the old Clinton defense — that adultery is an entirely private matter. Graham said, “This thing with Stormy Daniels and so forth is nobody’s business.””

And in my comment,

Christians grovelling before power is disgraceful… and a JUST reason for pagans to turn away from the church.

And not just pagans.

**Points Up**

Really, we need to get our act together!

And our Glorious Leaders, as well.

And if they don’t shape up and ship right, they should be shown the door.

Or God will show us the door.
