Some Pseudo-Overseer Gives Pseudo-Prayer at Pseudo-Inauguration Event

January 14, 2009

Tip of the Hat: and

So, some Pseudo-Overseer (the whole “married to but one wife” thing disqualifies Mr. Robinson to be an actual overseer) is going to do a pseudo-prayer for a Sunday “inauguration event” that is not the inauguration? I am not sure this is really news or just a very lame attempt to apologize to sodomites.

From the NYTimes article:

“[Mr.] Robinson said he had been reading inaugural prayers through history and was ‘horrified’ at how ‘specifically and aggressively Christian they were.’

‘I am very clear,” he said, ‘that this will not be a Christian prayer, and I won’t be quoting Scripture or anything like that. The texts that I hold as sacred are not sacred texts for all Americans, and I want all people to feel that this is their prayer.’

[Mr.] Robinson said he might address the prayer to ‘the God of our many understandings,’ language that he said he learned from the 12-step program he attended for his alcohol addiction.

Other than finding another disqualification for his office, is this not telling of something very, very wrong? Mr. Robinson is afraid of addressing a prayer to Christ in public. He is a supposed representative of Christ, yet will not speak directly to God or use His Word in any form during a “prayer”?

Prayer, by any definition, is humanity conversing with God. You try to take away God from the prayer, and it is no longer a prayer; it is a crazy person talking aloud to himself.

Someone being claiming to be one of Christ’s being so craven reminds me of some more Scripture:

“Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open unto us’; and he shall answer and say unto you, ‘I know you not whence ye are’: Then shall ye begin to say, ‘We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets’. But he shall say, ‘I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all [ye] workers of iniquity.’ There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you [yourselves] thrust out.” – Luke 13: 24-28
