Love never thinks of itself first. Love isn’t concerned with its own reputation. Love is always looking to act in the best interests of other people. Love goes beyond what is required by the letter of the law.
One Bob Jones Triplestix says he’s concerned for pastors who are under attack. And you can only guess who one of those might be. He even says (much like his Grandpappy) that you just need to keep “doing right”, chiefly by not questioning the words and actions of a pastor no matter what they may be. And he attempts to wrap it up in what is done to please God … but what it really sounds like is a lot of self-preservation. He even takes an extreme example of a website that attacks Tim Tebow of the Denver Broncos and tries to tie it into his theme.
Now, he is right on one front … many people are seeking to find people who will tell them what they want to hear regardless of whether it is grounded in a Biblical basis or not. But even here he wants to turn it to imply that only pastors he associates with and supports speak the truth and act with integrity. And therein lies one of the chief problems.
More than one of the pastors old Triplestix would support have done their share of lying and self-preservation. And attempting to exploit what is going on at Penn State while saying they won’t now nor have they have they ever swept anything under the rug just reeks of self-preservation. Their own records of “incidents” reported over the last three years show only “burglary” numbers … not one assault, not one auto theft, nothing but “burglary” … and that seems mighty strange to me.
No, what I’m seeing doesn’t show love as I know it … it only shows self-preservation. if you want to see how love reacts, go check out this blog site and then come back and comment.
