Sports Chaplin Skandalos

Skandalos, scandal, stumbling block. It's what Scripture says the message of the Cross is to the Jews.

A scandal has erupted out of the Washington Nationals' locker-room.

Team Chaplin Jon Moeller answered a question about Jews being lost without Christ - in the only way a Christian can answer the question - truthfully. And a firestorm erupts, an investigation is held, and of course, the chaplin is suspended.

This is an ominous portent of things to come, my friends. When a Christian can't even say what Jesus says so clearly without kicking the hornets' nest of haters. Sad, but expected. For isn't this what scripture tells us will happen?

This reminds me of requirements to join a certain blog:

We demand our members to show complete intolerance for oppression, bigotry, ignorance, violence, corruption, and exploitation. We may choose to deny membership to individuals who support certain politicians; for example, George W. Bush.

This is the actual words they used. We want things both ways. We want the freedom to say whatever we want, but the minute someone says something we don't like then all heck breaks lose.
