“Stay tuned. Next, we’ll hear from [fill in the blank] to share a Christian perspective.”
Usually you can hear the eyes rolls across the country. Well, not really, but you get my point.
Like you, I have grown frustrated of people (nutmos) spouting crazed faith-based ideologies claiming to speak for all Christians everywhere! Ugh!
Well, last night, Anderson Cooper featured a segment about the thousands of birds falling dead from the sky around the country. As you may know, some believe this is a ‘sign from God’.
Enter stage left is 80’s television star Kirk Cameron with the “Christian perspective”. My stomach sunk before he even opened his mouth.
“Here we go” I thought to myself.
My trepidation was completely unfounded! Cameron did an amazing job communicating the folly of these apocalyptic theorist and very astutely displayed a light, accessible and human side of the Christian community.
He was well…normal and didn’t come across as the bright tie-wearing, stiff-haired person few can relate to. In my opinion, he was great PR for us all.
Good job, Mike Seaver, I mean Kirk Cameron!
My church’s marriage ministry watched Kirk in “Fireproof” not long ago. Very good Christian movie.
Don’t forget “Left Behind”! The closest to post-rapture I want to get!
