“For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.” – 1 Corinthians 1:25 (NIV)
I should know better by now. I get excited when I hear that a pastor I admire or respect is going to appear on a national news program to talk about a current issue. I do expect that there will be an opposing viewpoint to counter the Christian perspective. But lately these types of appearances on national news are becoming nothing more than a dog and pony show.
Albert Mohler appeared recently on CNN to discuss the Ch1ck-F1l-A controversy. I was hoping Dr. Mohler would be given the respect he deserves when discussing the issue but was instead treated with disdain by the host and the opposing guest’s viewpoint. The tolerance that so many call for in the media is rarely offered to Christians when they speak in these types of forums. Again, I should know better and expect this nonsense. But it is getting awfully tiring.
