Hillsong Pastor Carl Lentz Is Doing A Little Back Peddling, "He Do Believe Abortion is Sinful”!!
Now, reader, all this hoopla that has been created in the last week could have been avoided, if this pastor would have just told the truth. It was a simple & direct question on abortion and he missed the mark. In the future be man enough to say God loves sinners but hates sin. Anyhow, Mega-church Pastor Carl Lentz has responded to criticism about his recent comments on abortion, saying he does believe abortion is a sin but he chose to emphasize grace instead of the sin.
Lentz, who leads the influential Hillsong Church in New York City, faced a lot of criticism this week after he side-stepped a question about abortion during his appearance on “The View.” His answer disappointed a lot of pro-life Christians.
Many want their clergy to speak boldly about the value of unborn babies, the atrocity of abortion and the love that should be shown to both mother and child. On Tuesday, Lentz posted a statement on Twitter explaining why he responded the way he did. “I do believe abortion is sinful,” Lentz wrote.
