Scandals And How We View Them

As Christ's representatives here on earth, the church is not without its share of scandals. It's one thing for uncommitted church-goers or even ordinary believers to be found out to be less than circumspect. But you would expect those who speak out unequivocally on certain issues to at least be speaking from real conviction and practice what they preach.

Yet look at all the spooky skeletons that have sprung out of those closets in breathless succession. From repeatedly buying drugs through a male prostitute gay lover only to “throw it away” each time; to propositioning gay sex in a public rest room due to “a wide stance”; to renting a male escort for a vacation in Europe because of a back problem in order to cure the escort’s homosexuality by showing him the Saviour’s love; to group excursions to the strip club on the organization’s dime. Not to mention the onslaught of priestly pedophilia cases and their cover-ups which have become so commonplace they are no longer news.

It could well be that duality is brought to bear on our hermeneutics. As we eagerly point the finger at those with whom we disagree, we seem less inclined to look inward. Could it be that that skewed vision helps shape our interpretation of Scripture? Just a thought.

Mood: None, or other
