The current evangelical game of “gotcha”

Later they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Jesus to catch him in his words. (Mark 12:13, NIV)

We are creating new games of “gotcha” in the evangelical world on almost a weekly basis now. Statements issued by one group are carefully scrutinized by another. Actions of one group are carefully scrutinized for motive by another.

The religious leaders in Jesus’ day were good at this. And for good reason.

You can tweet this. (LOL. I really hate that cue!)

When we don’t have true authority all we can do is try and ‘trap’ the opponent.
