An Open Letter to Christian Supporters of Roy Moore
By Dr. Jim West - Posted at Zwinglius Redivivus:
I write as a Christian theologian to warn you that the path you’re walking is hazardous both to your spiritual health and to the reputation of your church and your faith.
Many years ago the Apostle Paul encountered a group of people such as yourselves- supporters of immorality and willing to turn a blind eye to the evil being done in your midst and to your faith. Paul wrote those people these words:
It is widely reported that there is sexual immorality among you, immorality of a kind that is not found even among gentiles: that one of you is living with his stepmother. And you so filled with your own self-importance! It would have been better if you had been grieving bitterly, so that the man who has done this thing were turned out of the community. For my part, however distant I am physically, I am present in spirit and have already condemned the man who behaved in this way, just as though I were present in person. When you have gathered together in the name of our Lord Jesus, with the presence of my spirit, and in the power of our Lord Jesus, hand such a man over to Satan, to be destroyed as far as natural life is concerned, so that on the Day of the Lord his spirit may be saved. Your self-satisfaction is ill founded. Do you not realise that only a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough? Throw out the old yeast so that you can be the fresh dough, unleavened as you are. (1 Cor. 5:1-7)
To be sure Roy Moore isn’t sleeping with his step-mother. He’s doing something worse. ...
