    Wright is Wrong

    Barack Obama's "pastor" is out of bounds.
    I find nothing in New Testament church polity and hermeneutics to even hint at the vituperous mouthings emitted by Mr. Wright. The Apostle Paul at his most...intense was speaking against false brethren who sought to bring Christians back under the bondage of the Law of Moses. Likewise, Jesus' condemnation of the Pharisees took the form of accurate character assessment. Neither railed against Rome, or damned Rome.

    Jesus had said
    "Matt 5:44 But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use you and persecute you..."

    Paul said
    "Rom 12:9-21 Let love be without hypocrisy, shrinking from evil, cleaving to good; in brotherly love to one another, loving fervently, having led one another in honor. As to diligence, not slothful, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;
    rejoicing in hope, patient in affliction, steadfastly continuing in prayer,
    distributing to the needs of the saints, pursuing hospitality.
    Bless those who persecute you; bless, and do not curse.
    Rejoice with rejoicing ones, and weep with weeping ones;
    minding the same thing toward one another, not minding high things, but yielding to the lowly. Do not be wise within yourselves.
    Repay no one evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
    If it is possible, as far as is in you, being in peace with all men.
    not avenging yourselves, beloved, but giving place to wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, says the Lord."
    Therefore if your enemy hungers, feed him. If he thirsts, give him drink. For in so doing Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."

    Compare this with the ministry of Jeremiah Wright.
    By the plumbline of New Testament Scripture, I would say "Weighed in the balance and found wanting".
