Rev. Mohler Stands by 'Christian love' for Anthony Weiner
First, Mohler laments that in contemporary U.S. culture people think therapy, not theology, is the answer to every problem including a moral crisis. Then, showing understated irony (Weiner was exposed when he learned how un-private Twitter can be), Mohler writes:
As far as I know, Rep. Weiner is not among my "followers" on Twitter. I did not assume that he was reading my posting. My message was mostly directed at my fellow Christians as a reminder of this very concern -- that the American impulse is to seek treatment when our real need is for redemption.
I am all for redemption, love, and forgiveness but those virtues/attributes always need some king of companionship when dealing with anyone that offends. Let the offender know the implication of what he did, dole out punishment or restitution regimen, then you can forgive him.
