“I certainly don’t think that it is the duty of every single pastor to speak to every single issue on social media. But certainly, if they have time to push leftist talking points they get from CNN or MSNBC, then we certainly have the right to criticize them for their silence on actual issues that affect the Church.”
(The Dissenter) The Gospel Coalition has long been an outlet for progressivism whether it be theological liberalism or political activism. And The Gospel Coalition has long been criticized by conservative Christians who reject the notion that only leftists are allowed to be vocal about their convictions while conservatives need to just “endure patiently.”
One of the most misused passages in Scripture is found in Psalm 105:15 and also in 1 Chronicles 16:22, “Touch not my anointed ones, do my prophets no harm!” And while a recent article in The Gospel Coalition titled Stop Throwing Pastors Under the Bus doesn’t quote that verse directly, it certainly has a “touch not my anointed” mood about it. The crux of the article, written by Brett McCracken, is that Christians online are spending too much time criticizing their own pastors without calling them by name, but instead, using the generic term “pastors.”
