Bishop E. W. Jackson gave a sermon this Sunday in Northern Virginia. Not a political rally, he was delivering a sermon. The Washington Post then writes an article about the sermon as if this was some sort of political event, sourced by a “Democrat tracker” who apparently was following Jackson around in church, and they entitle it “E.W. Jackson says non-Christians are engaged in ‘some sort of false religion’.”
Democrats really ought to call a cease-fire in their open war against Christianity.
E. W. Jackson was discussing a very basic biblical truth that is expressed in John 14:6, something a Christian could easily be able to recite.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
This is one of those definitional ideas for Christianity. These are the words of Jesus himself, and no matter how touch-feely a church doctrine might be about what is true in the Bible and what might be parable, this is something you’re going to hear from the pulpit pretty regularly. If you are a Christian, this is your belief. If you don’t believe it, by definition you aren’t Christian. If you’re in a church where the pastor, priest or whoever might be delivering the sermon on a Sunday morning disavows this, you need to skedaddle pretty quickly away from such obviously non-christian false teachings.
So E. W. Jackson delivers a sermon on this topic, in his capacity as a minister. And the left goes absolutely nuts. The Washington Post treats his homily as if it were a political event and Bishop Jackson was talking about policy (perhaps because Pastors on their side of the aisle regularly use the pulpit for political purposes) and try to twist a sermon about basic Christian doctrine into a policy position that somehow insinuates something sinister. Have these “reporters” who supposedly commit “journalism” from time to time any shame whatsoever? Wouldn’t the very idea that they’re getting stories courtesy of democrat “trackers” who think it’s acceptable to be following people around in churches of all places make any sensible “journalist” recoil in horror?
A friend of mine on the other side of the aisle posted the Washington Post article on facebook, eliciting comments from his Democrat fellow travelers such as “garbage”, “fringe” and “ridiculous.” I can understand some atheists and those ignorant of Christianity to be a little taken aback by doctrine they don’t understand, especially when they have no understanding of the context of the story it relates to or the bigger picture of salvation. What’s happening is that the Washington Post, which I am certain is smarter about this than they’re trying to appear here, is deliberately trying to inflame anger among Northern Virginia liberals by preying on their ignorance with this utterly unethical hogwash.
Of note, the Washington Post has never reported on what Imams are saying to their flock about core moslem doctrines such as how murdering Christians and unbelievers is a noble service to Allah. When muslim believers with political aspirations go to their church, the Washington Post isn’t sourcing trackers in that house of worship, and writing articles about how murdering innocent people because they don’t follow Mohammed is not a “mainstream” idea. Nope, utter silence on that front.
But have a Christian minister deliver a sermon about John 14:6 and you get a whole article about how he is making “controversial” statements.
It’s just more of the left trying to demonize and ridicule Christianity.
