My future brother in law, good friend, and master theologian Jonathan has pointed out grievous hypocrisy in one of my previous posts.
I called Steve Gill out. I called him an idiot because of his representation of Dr. Camp yesterday. And I stick to the fact that he was wrong and he should have done more investigation of the subject before speaking about it. For a guy who distrusts the Tennessean as much as he does, its suprising how quickly he took Camp’s quotes as truth.
But I was wrong as well. There was no reason for me to call him names. That is not the way of our Lord (well, I guess he did call the Pharisees a brood of vipers, but still). Out of one side of my mouth I criticized Mr. Gill for some of his positions which I believe are inconsistant with the teachings of Christ, yet out of the other I am doing some of the same things. Mr. Gill, I apologize.
And I apologize to my readers. I have not been, and often am not, a good representative of the love of Christ. I call each of you to keep me accountable, too. When I say or do something that doesn’t exibit the attitude of Jesus, let me know. I want to be better, and I can’t do it without community.
