Like most people I was disgusted with the (latest) tripe to escape the lips of the (un)Reverend Jesse Jackson. Baptist pastor Thabiti Anyabwile has posted an excellent essay on Jackson's words and attitude at his blog Pure Church.
Perhaps the most helpful paragraph of his post, at least for me, is this:
Jackson reminds me that mine is a public life as well. Every pastor's life is a public life. And perhaps a case can be made that every Christian life is a public life. And we all can fall to depths that make us shudder when we're sober-minded enough to think about it. We are Christ's, but Satan has asked to sift us like wheat, sin lies crouching at our doors. We'd better watch our lives and our doctrine carefully.Amen and amen.
