Carl Lentz, a pastor for a Megachurch, appeared on The View and with that little bit of information, you can already guess how this is going to go.
He refused to give a clear answer on if abortion was a sin…
“Some people would say” abortion is a sin, the Hillsong pastor said in response to host Joy Behar’s question about his church’s beliefs, according to Life News.
“That’s the kind of conversation we would have finding out your story, where you’re from, what you believe. … I mean, God’s the judge. People have to live to their own convictions. That’s such a broad question, to me, I’m going higher.”
“To me, I’m trying to teach people who Jesus is first, and find out their story,” Lentz added.
James Silberman wrote of the video:
“This position might be received as a moderate stance on the issue or a lack of stance altogether. But in this case, to be on the fence is to be on the side of child sacrifice,”
“‘Live to your own convictions’ is practically the slogan of the abortion lobby. Lentz might as well have said ‘My body, my choice,’ or ‘Keep your rosaries off my ovaries.’”
I don’t know… I thought the answer to this would be really clear, right? I find it rather irritating that he would do that. Did he mean it or did he not want to get into an argument with the ladies on the view?
If the latter, he should have found the courage and lay it on the line for them. If the latter, well… we should start a letter-writing campaign for his church and see what his members think of his words? I’m sure they know, though.
What do you think of the video? Was he out of line with what he said?
