43 Pastors and Laymen Arrested in New York City for Tebowing




43 Pastors and Laymen Arrested in New York City for Tebowing

 

 Yes, they have the God-given, Constitutional rights to free assembly and freedom to practise their religion. Yes, Bloomberg and his goon squads are out of line, as well as being stupid to rob city coffers of the rent they could be receiving for use of the properties by churches.


But what of Christ?

    5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

   9 “This, then, is how you should pray:
   “‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
   on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
   as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
   but deliver us from the evil one.
   14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.




Just summat to think on, I conjure.

Yeah, that whole "don't be like pagans" thing... sort of makes me think. Should I not speak it, or should I not even bother thinking it? If God the Father knows, uhrm, just exactly what it is I am supposed to do? Go down on my knees and just... think TO God? About God? Never mind.

Still, if one prays in silence, or alone, that is fine. But there is something to public prayer as well. Without doing it, it seems obvious that we could lose the "right" to do so. Practice makes perfect. I hope they do a lawsuit that helps bankrupt NYC. That is part of what is needed.

Not being a person who follows sports I finally had to break down and find out who this Tebow character was.

And, believing that God not only puts us where He wants us (His will, after all, be done), but adjusts our volume accordingly, I shrugged and moved on.

Jesus' issue isn't with "public prayer". Paul gave guidelines for things like that in 1st Corintians. It is public prayer for the purpose of a pose that is the problem.

My issue isn't with Tebow. He is apparently a great kid, whose mom chose not to abort. He has a testimony, and a he plays pretty good ball! He thanks God by dropping to one knee and praying.

Now people are using the "Tebowing" bit to "show their faith" or to make a political statement. Faith becomes Fad.

Constantine, Francis Schaeffer, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson have mixed religion (or perhaps faith) with politics on the public stage. Look how much we have gained. This is not to say that they are to be separate. My faith MUST inform my politics. (Just not the other way 'round.)

I dunno. Maybe it is the reportage that is my problem. I cannot judge another's heart without fruit inspection...it is just the "seems" of it that is troubling, and the NYC thing just seems a bit passive-aggressive and snarky, regardless of the provocation.
