My pastor used to call it being “mealy mouthed”. But its also known as cowardice. So this is what a “world changer” does when the world confronts him?
And how else can we describe the pansy-wansy response of the Rev. Creflo Dollar of Atlanta when asked by Canadian interviewer George Stroumboulopoulos what Dollar thought about homosexuality. The interviewer first threw out the premise that we really don’t know if homosexuality is a sin or not, because one cannot take the Bible literally. Instead of Rev. Dollar saying “well some things in the Bible are very clear and homosexuality is a sin”, he weasels out by saying we can’t single out homosexuality and not talk about divorce and adultery. “Sin is without measure”, he concludes.
Creflo makes his living off of teaching about the power of wealth. But we can see wealth has no power at all when sin challenges the wealthy to a fight. In order to protect your self-attained wealth, confrontation of sin becomes less of a priority. It shows that the boldness of the Holy Ghost which empowered early church leaders (who were poor and uneducated) to stand and confront sin is absent in Creflo Dollar.
Independent Conservative has the video of Rev. Dollar’s fearful failure to stand up for truth. As IC pointed out, Creflo shows where his heart truly is…and its not with standing for truth.
Keep in mind, this interview was in Canada, where people are locked up for speaking firmly against homosexuality. We see Creflo had no desire to speak firmly against the sin he was questioned about. Didn’t want to do anything that might land him in prison like the apostles who were continually locked up for telling the whole truth.”
I’m sure Creflo was aware that his response would be watched very closely by Canadian gay activists. But are they the only ones he should be concerned about? His response and character is representative of the sorry, passive state the church and those who claim to be leaders of it have fallen into.
What happens to us when what is now a reality in Canada becomes a reality in America? If things continue in the direction they are going, “hate speech” laws could directly affect the free speech of some American preachers. One thing we can derive from this conversation: we can’t depend on Creflo to stand up for what’s right if his money is at stake.
Sadly, his money won’t protect him, when it comes to giving account before God.
