Elders’ Qualifications from:
<< 1 Timothy 3 >>
World English Bible
2 The overseer therefore MUST be without reproach,* the husband of one wife, temperate, sensible, modest, hospitable, good at teaching; 3 not a drinker, not violent [no striker – KJV], not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous …. 7 Moreover he must have good testimony from those who are outside, to avoid falling into reproach and the snare of the devil.
*Blameless – KJV. Certainly an overseer must be going to heaven, himself. See: Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way
Christianliberal just made this comment in the preceding post, Conservative radio host, Mancow, gets waterboarded to prove the technique isn’t torture, and lasts six seconds before saying waterboarding is “ABSOLUTELY TORTURE”. Since Pat Robertson is such a key evangelical figure, I decided to make this a separate post.
It’s kinda SAD that the right has taken up the banner of torture.
I saw Pat Robertson on TV yesterday and he was defending Dick Cheney’s torture stance.
I have always respected Robertson as a religious leader, but he has lost his spiritual compass when he condones such treatment.
What happened to family values?
Who would Jesus torture?
