Some Stuff That Needs Saying About A Horrible Preacher

So you’re reading John Pavlovitz.

Why?

Oh.

Those are good reasons!

You should have your reading comprehension checked.

Nothing Pavlovitz has ever written could be described as compassionate, loving or encouraging.

You must still be working your way through “Dick and Jane” books.

Here’s a reason to dismiss Pavlovitz that doesn’t require you to be literate.

Look at Pavlovitz’ fans.

Atheists, secularists, humanists, and non-religious folks LOVE this guy.

I feel like I need to spell this out for you.

People who don’t like Christians, really like Pavlovitz.

That should make you suspicious.

A Christian pastor should not be wildly popular with non-Christians.

That’s not just my opinion.

“Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for their fathers used to treat the false prophets in the same way.” – Luke  6:26

False prophets preach false religion.

When you reach the sixth-grade reading level, you will understand this.

Until then, you’ll have to trust me.

Pavlovitz teaches that Donald Trump has a direct impact on the Christian faith.

He teaches that Jesus needs to be saved.

He talks about what Jesus believed but NEVER quotes words that Jesus said.

But the thing that makes him a superstar among the heathen:

He rants against Christians.

A lot.

I feel like I need to spell this out for you.

Christians should not hate each other.

That’s not just my opinion.

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.  By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” – John 13:34

There are plenty of sources of compassionate inspiration online.

Pavlovitz is not one of them.

    “The Jesus I knew as a child and came to aspire to in adulthood is still here, and it is the heretics who are preserving him.
    It is the maligned backsliders, the Godless heathens, and the derided social justice warriors who are replicating his compassion for hurting people, his welcome for foreigners, his generosity toward the hungry, his gentleness for the marginalized.” John Pavlovitz 1/31/18
    In this blog he takes conservative christians to task for no longer representing Christ anymore and as Trump sycophants. I would consider myself conservative if that means believing what the Bible says is true and loving others as I love myself. I think he needs a refresher course in the “one another commands” instead of spending his energy on this sort of trite. Woe to you celebrity pastors and teachers of the law…
