Thoughts after considering “The Crucifixion of Carl Lentz” by Jonathan | sex+✞heology https://link.medium.com/XxxdVceglbb

From the article: ( queue instrumental theme from “ Love Story")--
Shortly after he was fired, for his birthday, his 16-year-old daughter Ava posted a praise for him on her Instagram account:

happy birthday dad❤️ i love you. best friend, strongest man, drippiest, music is fire, skinny jean legend, you’ve taught me everything i know!! our family 4L we love you ❤️❤️❤️

What a Christlike gesture, I thought. The pure love. In other news, celebrity friends Justin and Hailey Bieber ‘unfollowed’ him on Instagram.

Later...
But I wonder if he hasn’t just been divinely promoted?

If the world around him is still so focused on rules, rules, rules, what matters to God appears to be—love?

“He said he had never had a deep, sexual connection like what we had,” Ranin says. She calls them, together, “beautiful, broken people who found each other and collided . . .” 🔶

Why doesn't anyone now ask, if Lentz and his wife are martyrs...
...what becomes of their disciples?
...what becomes of their children?
...what becomes of Shanin?
...who isn't harmed in this aftermath/ exocism/ humiliation/ public shaming?
....is it really shaming if no one is really ashamed?
Here we are again: cannibalistic white evangelical elites feeding only upon their young in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic. Uber Halloween Horror, plenty of judgemental Old Testament, no Love.
