I Notice That A Number of You Read Ed Setzer…

I don’t.  And I’ll tell you why.  Because, when he was attempting to launch a new Church start just outside of Nashville he wrote the White House and invited then President Clinton to the inaugural service.  The White House responded with a nice congratulatory form letter, which Setzer then used to publicize his Church.

He was informed that he must cease and desist implying that he had some sort of implicit White House nod, and so he did.

Nevertheless, so far as I am concerned, his willingness to use what can only fairly be described as not exactly forthright methods (and I’m being extremely charitable) bespeaks a spirit with which I wish to have nothing to do.  I don’t read his blog, I don’t participate in his conferences, and I don’t publicize them when I hear of them.  I can’t.

δια τουτο εχοντες την διακονιαν ταυτην καθως ηλεηθημεν ουκ εγκακουμεν. αλλα απειπαμεθα τα κρυπτα της αισχυνης μη περιπατουντες εν πανουργια μηδε δολουντες τον λογον του θεου αλλα τη φανερωσει της αληθειας συνιστανοντες εαυτους προς πασαν συνειδησιν ανθρωπων ενωπιον του θεου. 2 Cor 4:1-2

I have to agree with Paul on this one.  And I have to associate with persons who do as well.

    Hey Jim this guy seems to have friends in high places.If he realises tou have misspelt his name he could give some one a call and your blog would disappear from the blogosphere.He is called Ed Stetzer and not what ever you called him. How do you think Titus felt when they misspelt his name without the “u”?
