Pulling the Plug on Pat...

Pat Robertson has gone to far...again.

Any good that he has done over the years has been overshadowed by the loose cannon pronouncements of the last few years culminating in the August 22nd call for the assassination of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez.

While I might agree that Chavez is a dangerous leader to have to our South; it is not the place of any Christian, much less a prominent one to advocate such an extreme action. Is it any wonder that many looking at the church today have little problem equating us with Muslim extremists?

With a forum that reaches millions daily, what a service Robertson could render the Kingdom by preaching Christ, rather than bombastic rhetoric.

Robertson is just one of a growing number of Christians who are making the mistake of believing that they can bring about Heaven on earth through not merely the ballot box, but by co-opting the Church as just another political entity.

If we don't repent and return to our first love, we will lose any credibility to speak to the culture of the age. We will have sold our birthright for a mess of pottage.

For the sake of Christ, shut up Pat!
