One of These Things is Not Like the Other, One of These Things Just Doesn’t Belong…


Let’s be sure to stand with the Christians actually being killed for their faith around the world today.

  1. I agree, but this post has implications that standing for his beliefs isn’t that big of a deal.  When really, most professing christians wont risk their cash for the truth.

  2. The guy is super rich and what the heck does he care?  I would say he knew full well where this would end up. He is not dumb.  He probably wanted off of the dumb show .

  3. @Cory  that’s not at all what I was trying to convey, so I apologize if it comes off that way. It’s mostly about the reaction to the situation. We act as if this is a great injustice when there are actual martyrs in the world today.
    I also think that his response was more than simply stating what he believes. We often single out homosexuality as if it’s the only sin. We often want people to know that we don’t like what they do before we want them to know that we love them and God loves them.

  4. I would certainly not associate Phil Robertson with, say, Stephen in the book of Acts, but….. The concern that many people have in our American society today is that, for most our history, Christians have been accorded a wide degree of latitude when it comes to what they say and believe. In the last decade, though, there’s been a major turning point in our culture to where many are now downright hostile to any kind of publicly proclaimed Christian worldview (especially on matters related to sexuality). And….now Christians who express such beliefs publicly are experiencing social, economic, political, and (sometimes) legal persecution. Many of us are concerned that this may be the start of a trend which ultimately LEADS to the kind of persecution many of our brothers and sisters in Christ face in other parts of the world today. That’s a troubling thought, to say the least.

  5. Brian Tubbs Troubling, maybe, but it’s exactly how Jesus said it would be. While Christendom may have been responsible for some good, it has no doubt perverted true Christ-following. Christianity has always done better on the margins of society.

  6. beardonabike Brian Tubbs Thanks for the reply and your overall thoughtfulness in this blog. I appreciate what you’re saying, and I’ve preached exactly that. I do believe we, as Christians, should prepare ourselves for persecution AND I agree that Christianity thrives under persecution AND I agree that God may want that to happen in America, BUT….

    I don’t believe we (even stipulating the above three points of agreement) should just lay down and surrender. Like Paul in Acts, I will continue to “appeal to Caesar.”
