I do believe that sometimes a pastor should deal with current issues of the day-=Jesus and Paul did it, so should we. Why? Because we all need to look into the perfect truth of God's word when viewing things of the world, how we should respond, and expecially how not to fall into the media traps of emotionalism over facts and truth.
I recently preached on the subject of homosexual marriage-not an issue I usually feel the need to deal with, as all the church is in one accord, but particularly on not getting caught up in the rhetoric coming from one side or the other, but looking at it from a biblical perspective.
So it should be with this subject. Unfortunately what I see is a lot of emotional, race-related pap, while ignoring the laws and the facts of the case, as well as what the Bible says about such things. We need to have Christians to be trained in using the Bible to judge all things, not Ruch Limbaugh or Shawn Hannity or the AP or CNN or Fox or so on...And where will they get that training if their churches aren't doing it?
