Pat Robertson

There is controversy going on over the statements being made by Pat Robertson of the 700 Club. Some of those in question are:

  • His statements in 2003 that the State Department be blown up with a nuclear device.
  • Feminists encourages women to "kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
  • He called on his daily show for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
  • The latest being his charge to the rural town of Dover, PA, that disaster mike strike their city because 'they voted God out of their city'.
Robertson goes on to tell the people of Dover not to turn to God, if a disaster strikes their city. He said that his comments were made to mean that 'our spiritual actions have consequences'. Well, and good, but I don't think everyone in that town has turned away from God. I've seen God and prayer taken out of our schools over the nation, but has every person turned from God? I would think not!

I agree with Robertson, in that 'God is loving and tolerant'. But, God is also a merciful God. While, our actions do have consequences, I don't believe God is going to turn away from those that earnestly seek Him in time of need. We may suffer for going against God, but I think the only way He will reject us is for us to completely reject Him and His calling on our lives.
