Reverend compares Ken Lay to Jesus
HOUSTON (Reuters) -- Houston's political and business leaders, including former President George H.W. Bush, turned out for Kenneth Lay's memorial service Wednesday, less than a week after the Enron founder's sudden death.

Friends and family lauded as a devout Christian and family leader the man who built Enron into an international energy powerhouse before its collapse in the biggest corporate scandal of its time.

Lay's stepson David Herrold told the nearly full First United Methodist Church that Lay was wrongly convicted, and he was angry about the portrayals of his stepfather in the media.

"He did have a strong faith in God and I know he's in heaven, and I'm glad he's not in a position anymore to be whipped by his enemy," Herrold said. ...

To Chawoott from Virginia. Its great to see that you are Christ in the flesh, perfect, without sin and in position to judge MLK. Its great to know that unlike the rest of us, you dont need the blood of Jesus to wash away your sins. Your comments reek of the self righteous piety of the pharisees. Who or what MLK or Ken Lay were is really between them and God. It is to God that they both will answer not you. Ken Lay was Ken Lay, NOT Christ.

I often get the news from SermonAudio long after any of the readers, usually in the Sunday morning e-mail. My comment is directed to "chas." I agree wholeheartedly with your sentiments. I am sure the remarks were favorable about MLK simply because of the liberalism of the folks attending and presiding. Perhaps Lay was like MLK: cheated on his wife, lied to folks, and pretended he was God's gift to humanity. Who knows for sure? I think Lay's family was correct in standing up simply because that's what families do.

Evidence of him having repented would have included him apologising and handing over much of his personal wealth to those less financial individuals who lost money in the Enron collapse. And if he had done this you can be sure his stepson would have made mention of this act at his funeral.

From the Article: "He did have a strong faith in God and I know he's in heaven,..."

A lot of people have faith in God. However, apart from faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, there is no access to the Father. Almost everybody today believes in God: Muslims, Hindus, etc. However, the crux is the divinity and sonship of the Lord Jesus and the saving grace and forgiveness of sins found only in His name by faith.

It is true that many people were hurt due to the ENRON disgrace.

It is my sincere hope that Kenneth Lay made his peace with God --- Through Jesus Christ --- At The Foot Of The Cross...

I would not wish hell on anyone --- what a horrific place of pain and suffering it will be for All Eternity.

Concerning any other points relaiting to this article --- No Comment... other than to say all are in my prayers...

May GOD Touch Us All With A Greater Depth Of HIS Word That We Might Be A Better People With Humbled Hearts Before HIM Ever Mindful Of The Way, The Truth And The Life HE Is Calling Us To IN, OF And THROUGH HIS Son (The Christ, Jesus) --- Yes, That We Might Be Better Citizens Seeking To Live Our Lives At Peace With One Another With Respect, Honor, Truth And Fidelity --- As We Live Our Lives In The SIGHT OF GOD!!! Help Us DO THIS O GOD!!! IN Jesus Name, A-men.

Kevin you need to read Board Sweeper's comments. The United Methodist Church is one of the most socially active churches around.

Board sweeper is quite correct, perhaps he read the article on Methodism at,

http://64.233.167.104/search?q=cache:qGGWSorj3xgJ:www.withchrist.org/United%2520Methodists.doc

A Microsoft Word document, and if you don't hav a lot of Microsoft products, ust download the FREE Open Office program from,

www.openoffice.org

to read it.

The Rev. Bill Lawson was right about one of three people, anyway, Jesus Christ.

Doesn't anyone here see the forrest for the trees? Look at the dignitaries that praised this criminal. Don't you see how the wealthy, Republican, so-called Christian establishment views capitalism as Christianity incarnate? Their sick minds really lead them to believe that God is pleased with abuse of common folk, and that to have sympathy for common folks is Godless socialism. Is it any wonder that organized religion has such a bad reputation among those who care about social issues. You hang around with pigs, you stink!

News articles always leave out the details we most want to know - was the comparison to Jesus and MLK favorable, or unfavorable?

Just the same old religion of Liberalism which worships the creature and NOT the Creator.

The seed of Arminianism and free will is the corruption which produces this 'tare' in the church.

This seed planted a couple of centuries ago has grown, and developed into the arminian egotism of, - ""God needs my help to save me.""

Chas,
good point.

Reformed camp a bit guilty in this too- look how some of the Puritans are reveered as Divines- look how Spurgeon patronised the letters of Samuel Rutherford,maybe Cheryl was right when she said that was bolony !

In scripture we have somebody telling Christ that a certain person was worthy of having his servant healed,we have the case of John and James mother wanting her sons to sit one each side of the Lord in heaven.

Thankfully the Lord is long suffering and gracious and knows our frame!

In one sense, Ken Lay does resemble Christ: in both cases, dying was the best career move they ever made.

How dare this minister compare any man, especially a sinful man, to the Lord. This ignorance is inexcusable in one who professes to be knowledgable about Christ and His word. If he wishes to compare someone's treatment or suffering to the Lord's, this is one thing. Even then the analogy is unfitting when referring to a man like Lay. But to make Christ out to be on the same level as any person, even the most Godly, is to drag Christ down to the human level and rob Him of His glory.
As regards being compared to Martin Luther King, that's just plain insulting.
