I had a good discussion with a fellow pastor here at LifePoint today about a controversial subject that has been debated in various circles this week. It involves the pastor of the largest church in our state (Washington), and a comment he posted on Twitter concerning the President of the United States. On Presidential Inauguration Day earlier this week Pastor Mark Driscoll tweeted this:
“Praying for our president, who today will place his hands on a Bible he does not believe to take an oath to a God he likely does not know.”
Christians and non-Christians alike have spent a lot of time debating this comment and the man who made it. What do you think about his words? The goal here is not to start a political debate, nor to make it about a specific person involved in this situation, but to foster dialogue on this issue.
What do you think about that tweet?
