Facebook Post Gets Wrong When It Comes to God, Sin and Ferguson

13 Jan

After the grand jury’s decision regarding the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, many people went to their blogs and twitter accounts to share their views and opinions.  Many of these blog posts went viral.

Ben WatsonOne post that went viral was the response by New Orleans Saint player, Ben Watson.  Over 860k people liked the article, and almost 475k people shared it (Wow, I am aspiring to 75 shares.)  My personal Facebook feed was covered with Ben’s response.  I applaud his courage, and loved his desire to stand for his faith.

I found this article over the weekend, and I wanted to share it with our readers.

The author of the article says that while he applauds Watson’s Christian beliefs, as citizens, we cannot resolve the issue by calling people to love God.

A love for God moves us to thoughts, decisions, and actions.

What are your thoughts?
