Good read. Lots of noise again about Rick Warren and his allegedly compromising his Christian beliefs.
I really like some of the statements about people failing to check the facts, but my favorite quote is this one:
Our culture has accepted two huge lies: The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear them or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.
I missed the original hoopla, but I believe the negative response falls into the category of a failure to “Seek 1st to understand…”
Why are we all in such a hurry to judge, that we don’t first take the time to gather enough evidence to understand what happened?
