Mindless mantras are an abomination to God
I recently came across a video clip that was taken from a popular television talk show called The View, where liberal co-host, Joy Behar and conservative co-host, Elizabeth Hasselbeck got into a heated on-air argument about prayer that is sure to evoke a rousing response from pulpits and pundits across America while creating lots of bubbly buzz for the alphabet network around the workplace water cooler, which is undoubtedly why ABC News posted it on their website – to get more bang for the gang.
As one might expect, little if any biblical truth emerged from the exchange, even among those on the show who are considered Christians. Whatever faith was present on the set that day was largely expressed with “I think” and “I feel” which reduces Christianity to an experiential expression of one’s own opinion rather than a clear and faithful proclamation of God’s Word – big difference. But then, that’s what today’s “Christianity” has become.
