Reflections on a Wandering Life.....

Sunday, July 25, 2010

Sunday. Went with Jason and Heather to a small Baptist church that meets in a rented building. The pastor showed a Youtube video of Penn Jillette, where he expresses his appreciation for a Christian who gave him a Gideon Bible after a show. The point the pastor made was that unbelievers are not necessarily offended by Christians sharing their faith, even if they are not sympathetic with the ideas being presented to them.

I guess some folks have interpreted this video to mean that Penn Jillette has become a Christian. They are missing the point. What he is saying is that, while he does not believe, he is not opposed to those who do believe trying to share their faith with others. Interesting perspective. Penn and Teller have been quite vocal in their ridicule of Biblical truth, so it's possible that he felt he should say something positive about people of faith.
