I would write a blog on this, but a local Pastor here in SLC already wrote an article that says it all. You can find his article, which appeared in today's Salt Lake Tribune, here. The only point I would add to the article is that the Pastor's prayer also displays his ignorance... Buddhists do not pray to the Buddha.
I think we need to keep a clear separation between our view... and speaking for God. Otherwise we end up where this Pastor got himself to:
- My views are right
- God is right
- My views are God's views
