Just What Christianity Doesn’t Need – Prayers Like This!

Pastor Steve Anderson prays regularly for President Obama’s death. I really don’t even have to write this short post… but I will. Let me jump ahead of your thinking and say loud and clear – Mr. Anderson does not represent me.

Christians should have a clear moral voice and should certainly stand up for the principles of absolute truth as revealed in God’s Word. We’ve definitely had the weakness of watering down our doctrine and losing our saltiness at times. Nonetheless, the New Testament never gives us the authority to storm into the throneroom of God with an impreccatory prayer, calling for the death of a national leader. It’s kind of an insane theology that requires one person to pronounce a judgment of mortality upon another person.

It’s bad. Let’s not do such things, okay people?

  1. Doesn't represent me either. I didn't vote for him, and I definitely don't agree with him on a number of issues. I am impressed by his skills as an orator and his attempts to bring some type of consensus to our national thinking. That said God and history will ultimately judge him, there is no need for us to get in the way….
