My Apology for Using John Crist’s Comedy on November 24th.

27 Nov

I’ve recently learned that John Crist, a Christian comedian, has confessed to several sexual sins. The video below makes an exceptionally valid point.  Well worth watching. The YouTube Channel is Jo Beckwith’s “Trauma Talk.”

    I’m sorry but I don’t get her point. Sin, especially sexual sin, is always first against persons and then against God. No respectable christian church ever can preach or understand this differently. And John Crist says in his statement:”I am sorry for the hurt and pain I have caused these women and will continue to seek their forgiveness. I have also hurt the name of Jesus and have sought His forgiveness.” He seeks first forgiveness of the women and then of Jesus. His behavior is absolutely unacceptable, but this part of his statement is correct in light of basic Bible doctrine.

    Peter, thank you for your comment. You are certainly right about what Crist says in his statement. I’m sure you would agree that sin is always first against God and then against people, right? Jo is reminding us not to forget the victims, I think. Thanks again for reading my blog. Blessings. Larry

      Larry, you are right, you are just the better Bible scholar than me .. I just never heard the 2 aspects so separated as the video suggests.
