What if you were wrong
Okay, I am going to say something about this…
I have not heard Jeremiah Wright’s entire sermons, but I am thinking of watching a couple of them. From catching a few clips online and on satellite radio, I have heard some ‘powerful’ and provocative speech.
I hear his supporters saying that he is speaking prophetically. When you study the prophets of the Old Testament, they were not status quo, government supporting preachers. Interesting thoughts to think what an Old Testament prophet would say about America today.
My bigger topic today or bigger picture is not necessarily Jeremiah Wright, but how do I decide my point of view. Rev. Wright happens to be a good case study.
Education (going to college and getting a degree) has forced me to analyze every situation through different eyes. I give things a thorough screening before casting judgment. Then, when seeing with spiritual eyes, I can discern the intent and purpose. I often find a battle between my knee-jerk reaction and the ones that I come with after examination and prayer.
I know that whether I am watching CNN, ABC, or FOXnews that any media source has bias. One way or the other. So, taking their spin is not the best option.
My intent today is not to pick a side. It is to stimulate your mind a little. I am going out on a limb and say I did.
