What's Wrong About Wright?

II Timothy 3:1 But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. 6 For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, 7 always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth.

I write this particular post with great sadness. After listening to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright over the last two days, I have felt my heart torn into when I see the disunity of our country and particularly the church.

At the National Press Club, yesterday, I saw this disunity personified in the comments of Rev. Jeremiah Wright. I heard a man who is so off the mark of true, Biblical Christianity that I bristle when I hear men call him a ‘scholar’….( “always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth”).

Where do you begin attacking such faulty theology and practice? His views are so outrageous. What is Rev Wrights source of truth? It can’t be the Scriptures. He spoke of being accountable to God, but He is dangerously accountable to no one and is a poor representative of the God he says he represents. He is enjoying his spotlight time so much. It almost seems he is enjoying taking his 'member' down. Great shepherd, huh?

He mangled the gospel of forgiveness by implying that if it is not asked for and proven in restitution, it is not given.

News agencies do not want to solve any conflict- they sell the controversy.

Some leading African American leaders profit from the controversy.

No white person will even dare touch it.

We are in trouble if this downward spiral is not brought under control. Our only hope is repentance and revival.

I will re-post my prayer for America.
And the call is now to the church- we have to stand on the truth of God’s word and boldly proclaim the true gospel.

Lord, please forgive us and save us. Turn our hearts back to You.
