It’s interesting to read the continuing back and forth among certain Christians regarding the death and subsequent media debacle over the life and death of Rachel Held Evans.
Amen, Wally! There can be a great deal of controversy and debate….and people still love one another. I take note of the fact that Pastor Wilson, who disagreed vehemently with RHE, still did not exploit her death or act like a lunkhead when he wrote his article about her passing. That was cool.
This is a somewhat typical response.
What this person – and millions like her – fail to recognise or simply refuse to acknowledge – is the belief that someone like Evans will be spending eternity burning in Hell is expounded day in and day out by millions of Christians.
The problem isn’t that such revolting comments were Tweeted after her death, but the fact that such revolting beliefs are indoctrinated and inculcated in the first instance, from Pulpit to Pew, parent to child.
This above example of internet lovey-dovey on blogs and similar is a sham and smacks of the height of deceit and hypocrisy.
”We can all get on just fine, we all love and worship Jesus – even though you are going to burn in Hell for ever because your Christianity is wrong, you heretic!”
