Poate că o fi știind el cum e Dumnezeu, nu zic ba, dar în materie de înțelepciune în gestionarea reacțiilor față de ce se întâmplă cu capra vecinului mai are de învățat:
After some harsh online criticism, Christian author and college chancellor John Piper deleted two tweets quoting scripture from the Book of Job in the Bible posted late Monday evening, the same day that a devastating tornado flattened an Oklahoma City suburb, resulting in at least 24 deaths.
„The reason I pulled my tweets from Job is that it became clear that what I feel as comfort was not affecting others the same,” Piper was quoted as saying to members of Desiring God, a ministry he founded. His explanation was posted in a blog by Desiring God content strategist Tony Reinke.
„When tragedy strikes my life, I find it stabilizing and hope-giving to see the stories of the sheer factuality of other’s losses, especially when they endured them the way Job did. Job really grieved. He really agonized. He collapsed to the ground. He wept. He shaved his head. This was, in my mind, a pattern of what must surely happen in Oklahoma. I thought it would help. But when I saw how so many were not experiencing it that way, I took them down,” said Piper, who recently retired as lead pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minn.
