Cut & Paste Comforters (Job’s Friend)

Usher: Hey Deak – another cut & paste preacher using whatever scripture fits for her sermon:

Taken from a site in blogsphere:

When the authorities come and take your children, your freedom and your possions: = Keep your Tongue – (1 Peter 3:10-11, James 3:2-14)

When loved ones die at the hands of evil: = Encourage others (Romans 14:19)

When the gang on the block shoots a child in your neighborhood – Don’t allow the actions of others to determine how you will treat them (Romans 12:16-19)

When your parent molests you and ruins your life and everything intimate – Get rid of bitterness (Hebrews 12:14-15)

When a business partner chooses to partner with the solution that supports his point of view instead of yours and breaks the partnership sending you to the poor house – Be a Peacemaker (James 3:17-18 )

When you are left with nothing and you and your family have been put out on the street – Realize that we have peace with God (Romans 5:1-2)

When your husband comes home and tells you he’s having an affair and he’s going to leave you and your kids – Control your thoughts (Phil 4:4-9, 2 Cor 10: 3-5, Isaiah 26:3)

When 911 takes your husband and you are left a widow, a single mom and you have no pedigree to pursue the only life you have ever known – Let Peace Rule in your life (Col 3:15)

Deacon: When will these people ever get that they don’t have the answers? Not one single answer for what God is doing in an individual’s life!  Taking scripture out of context and giving people 10 steps is the most idiotic thing a pastor can do.  She should rename herself  “Job’s friend”.

    I think the worst thing I ever did to someone hurting was quote scripture to them. I think of Christ at Lazarus’ tomb when He wept. His words were of comfort and of hope, not pre-scripted, memorized quotes (almost to the point unfortunately of making scripture cliche’ – I wonder how God feels about that!).

    Usher: Another injustice by the know-it-all church leading by example. Your post says you didn’t know any better and yet you must have been following the example of the leaders of your church.
