Robertson Does Not Represent the Christian Faith

Those of us that are Christian are called to follow the example of Jesus Christ not that of self serving and spiritually misguided religious leaders like Pat Robertson, Jerry Farwell and Willie Wilson.

“For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.” John 13:15

Pat Robertson, a professed Man of God who has a vast following through the popular Christian T.V. Show 700 Club. Robertson has gone off track of the work of a Religious leader especially one that has committed himself to abide by the teachings of the Holy Bible. And in accepting the call to be a Christian Leader Robertson has committed himself to being an example for others, to present the Christian faith to the World, to not deviate from Christian values and certainly not to expose false Christian values.

Robertson has said the United States should assassinate Hugo Chavez, the Democratically Elected President of Venezuela. In addition, what makes this statement dubious is how it relates to the perception held by many American citizens like myself that believe that corrupt American “interest” are attempting to steal oil from poorer and weaker nations. Venezuela provides 14% of the United State’s Oil.

“Thou shalt not kill.” Exodus 20:13
