It Should Still Be TILL DEATH Do Us Part

A lot is being made of Pat Robertson’s horrifying comments (HERE) about a man divorcing his wife who is stricken with Alzheimer’s. (I find it highly ironic the MEDIA is shocked by someone in the church advocating divorce, but that’s another story.)

A column (HERE) really hits hard on Robertson’s statement. These words are really pointed:

Pat Robertson’s cruel marriage statement is no anomaly. He and his cohorts have given us for years a prosperity gospel with more in common with an Asherah pole than a cross. They have given us a politicized Christianity that uses churches to “mobilize” voters rather than to stand prophetically outside the power structures as a witness for the gospel.

But Jesus didn’t die for a Christian Coalition; he died for a church. And the church, across the ages, isn’t significant because of her size or influence. She is weak, helpless, and spattered in blood. He is faithful to us anyway.

  1. Did Jesus die for the church? I would have thought he died for all humanity but I could be wrong.

    I do like the analogy of us (the people of God) and Jesus remaining faithful!
