Hillsong Pastor Carl Lentz Fails to Condemn Abortion

 

Well-known pastor of Hillsong Church, Carl Lentz, has run into controversy after he failed to condemn abortion while he was a guest on “The View.”

Co-host Joy Behar asked Lentz whether or not he believes abortion is wrong, to which he responded, “That’s the kind of conversation we would have finding out your story, where you’re from, what you believe. I mean, God’s the judge. People have to live to their own convictions,” Lentz continued. “That’s such a broad question, to me, I’m going higher. I want to sit with somebody and say, ‘What do you believe?’”

James Silberman, a contributor to TheFederalist.com, notes that Lentz’s failure to unequivocally condemn abortion is indicative of the moral relevancy which is so pervasive in our culture, and even within the Church.

“‘Live to your own convictions’” is practically the slogan of the abortion lobby,” notes Silberman.

After Lentz’s answer to the abortion question, Behar pushed the issue even further: “So it’s not an open and shut case for you?” she asked.

“Some people would say it is,” Lentz responded. “To me, I’m trying to teach people who Jesus is first, and find out their story. Before I start picking and choosing what I think is sin in your life, I’d like to know your name.”
What do you think? Do you agree with Lentz?
