Robertson, Haiti and Some Local Ministers
TUESDAY, JANUARY 19, 2010

The Village Inn was surprisingly empty at this time of night considering how close it was to I-25. Sitting as comfortable as possible in an uncomfortable booth, the three ministers chewed the fat.

Of course, when ministers have a casual conversation, theology is never far behind.

"What about that crazy Robertson?" the middle age pastor suddenly asked, cocking his snow-capped head to one side.

"You mean his unfounded assertion that Haiti is cursed because of a pact with the devil?" elaborated the elder minister with a steady tone.

"What do you expect?" the youngest quickly retorted, "He's been making irresponsible public assertions for decades."

The three men looked knowingly at each other. They grew up in such a hyped-up, emotional-based religious context before converting to a more rational, Biblical-based classical Protestantism of Calvin and Luther. As such, they represent a minority in the ever-expanding Evangelical movement.

"It is one thing to recall the tower of Siloam where Christ reminds everyone of the fall of man and creation and the subsequent call to repentance, it is another matter all together to presume that an unsubstantiated "pact" of two-hundred years ago is the cause of today's disaster."

The young pastor rolled on: "Presuming to speak on God's half with such detailed answers--what he's been doing for years as a charismatic--is foolhardy. He is not a prophet nor a son of a prophet. When will more Christian realize that prophecy has ceased? 'But where there are prophecies they will cease' "

He referenced 1 Corinthians 13:8, part of a number of Biblical passages reminding the Church to stick with love and the Bible and not our own vain imaginations.

The eldest and wisest of the three solemnly intoned: "Well, all we can do know is pray that more Americans will take Robertson less seriously. And we can pray for the people of Haiti to find hope in Christ and for our missionaries to help those in their hour of need, both physically and spiritually."

And the men heartily agreed, "Amen."
