Paul Peterson is the Man!

Can I just say how much I love Paul Peterson? I wish I had got to hang out with him more when he was church planter resident at Mountain Lake. Why do I love him so much? Because his is different than so many pastors I know. He is real, down-to-earth, not ignorant, and is for everyone. He unvieled the dirty side of our faith with this simple post:

Now whether you like Obama or not. Think deeply about your actions when reading his post, and all the comments.

It’s sad.

No wonder Christians and the Church are such turn offs. We are ignorant selfish jerks that think God is Republican, Blesses America, and gets Michael W. Smith to play at his parties.

πŸ™‚ Okay…a little sarcasm there. But a little bit of truth.

Louie, I needed our weekly Starbucks chat this morning Sooo bad. I have some pain killers for the hand if you need em…(illegally though).

  1. Dude!

    I love you too man!

    Seriously, I’m surprised at a few things:

    1) how many people obviously didn’t read the post – I did not endorse Obama.

    2) the number of people who have apparently have forgotten who appoints our leaders and our responsibility to them – read Romans 13:1-6 gang.

    3) how mean on one hand and how stupid on the other hand some bible people are. It goes to prove that a little bit of bible knowledge can be a dangerous thing.

    While I certainly don’t mind the dialogue, I do mind the fact that some of these comments confirm the stereotype of christians who sport bumper stickers all over their cars! πŸ˜‰

    Anyhow, it’s cool to see you in the digital world again!
