In case you were living under a rock this past week you may have missed the big hoopla about the Pope visiting the United States. It was a pretty big deal. The first family greeted him at the airport, he made a house call over at Capitol Hill, spoke with the folks at the UN and chilled with the those less fortunate. Outside of having mass and christening babies, he made a few speeches that ruffled people’s feathers. Okay the truth is, I have no idea if these people were really offended or maybe it was just a slow news cycle. The topic at hand was “is the Pope too liberal?”
I don’t know why we are so quick to make everything a political agenda. The Pope is not running for president of the world, he’s not out trying to topple governments. He’s just spreading the gospel. I’m not sure he wants you to “give and give until we are poor” just more like be more conscious and practice true religion of taking care of those less fortunate (James 1:27). These folks making me preach and it ain’t even Sunday!
