Is This How We Should Pray?
|Last week I posted on the difficulty of following Jesus' teachings when involved in, commenting on, and talking about politics.|
I had no idea about a recent sermon preached by Tempe Pastor Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church.
In it, he specifically calls for President Obama to die and burn in hell. He even goes so far as to say that he will pray for this. Somehow when Jesus called us to pray for our enemies and those who persecute us, I am not sure he had this kind of prayer in mind.
Here is the CNN report by Rick Sanchez that includes Pastor Anderson in his own words. It should send chills down your spine.
My friend Roy over at Thin Places has also posted on this.
Even if you are not trying to lead a life following Jesus, does this stuff concern you?
