    Don’t worry about those naysayers. We can do our grieving and say our prayers without ever thinking about them. Don’t give those people another thought.

    + Thank God that the people of Paris marched in the streets singing hymns to the Mother of God. Maybe there’s a revival coming!

    + Pray, without giving any thought to the naysayers, for the souls of the Christians in Sri Lanka. “Martyrs of Sri Lanka, pray to God for us.”

    +Pray, without listening to the voices of naysayers, for our sister in Christ Rachel and for her sweet family.

    We don’t need to think about those other people.

    Xenia,

    I think you speak in wisdom…thank you.

  3. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    I agree with Xenia – who cares if some guy named Bob tweets the RHE is not a Christian or some lady named Sally responds that Roman Catholics are lost and bound for hell.
    As I don’t get my health care advise from social media, I refrain from theological advise from the same medium.

  4. Michael says:

    MLD,

    The people I follow on Twitter and the people I note here…have large numbers of followers and busy websites.
    They are people of influence.
    It’s important to have voices in opposition.

  5. Josh says:

    I have ignored RHE for many years now. I know she has a husband and small children. My heart breaks for them. I pray she is restored to health, to the great Glory of God.

    What I saw was dozens of people tweeting that RHE was the reason they decided to go into ministry, or many who said she had guided them to faith in Christ.

    I know there won’t be many of those tweets when I am sick, so maybe I misjudged her. God bless her and those she influences.

  6. Michael says:

    I have some large theological differences with Rachel Evans.
    I’m not Roman Catholic.
    I can still call all of them family.

    Russell Moore was great about this, as usual…

    Russell Moore…a Reformed Baptist 🙂

    The Sri Lanka stuff kills me. I don’t even know where to begin on that. I guess just weep to God until the words come.

    I like what Xenia said.

    Haters gotta hate.

    Unfortunately, the current polarization and vehicles for spreading it are many.

    When our ‘Martyr’s’ album was released, my bandmate Michael and I spent part of a day with Rachel. While I did not examine her on the 39 Articles or the Westminster Confession, she struck me as a slightly progressive evangelical who was becoming interested in a more liturgical church. Perhaps more important, she was (and is) a fellow baptized believer who has faith in Christ. We mourn for fellow believers in Sri Lanka. Some of those praying and singing on the streets of Paris were friends of mine whom I have worshipped with. The desire to exclude and vilify is, I believe, the mark of Cain on this generation of fundamentalists…

    Who are these fire, brimstone and dung hurlers that dispise the Faithful? I guess I inhabit the wrong portion of the internet to hear this firsthand.

    Speaking of Catholics:
    I would say as close I will ever feel or come to Heaven in this life, was a Catholic funeral. The symbolism and it’s correct architectural placement was meaningful in a way that North American Fundamemtalism never could offer.

    A Bill Gothard could offer me another seminar, or latedt edition of a Wisdom Book. Catholics offered me Cheribim under a vaulted room, an image of The Branch, angels and reverence.

    Well said Michael.
    Well put.
    Makes me think of the shortest verse in The New Testament:
    Jesus wept.

  13. Jim says:

    Am I selfish or smart for not watching the news for more than an hour a week and using FB for grandkids and Twitter as a newsfeed for one (nutritional) topic? Maybe neither, but I’m happier without the noise.

    This left me in tears…

    Kevin Hart on Joe Rogan lamented, “It’s cool to hate”. The church is staying relevant, after all.
