You Are God’s Anointed

Today’s cartoon from Naked Pastor seemed especially appropriate in light of the discussion about the revival meetings in Florida.

Don’t let anyone tell you that you may not question the methodology, theology, or fruit of those who minister.

  1. hehe. funny cartoon.

    a lot of people have used that verse about not touching God’s annointed as reason to NEVER question what a pastor/minister/apostle-what-have-you thinks or does or says EVER. and if you do actually question it, YOU are the one who is doing wrong/being rebellious. i wonder what those people make of Nathan when he rebuked/prophesied against David or Paul when he (very publicly) rebuked Peter. God gave us a brain to use it. :-)

  2. oh…and also…aren’t all believers ‘annointed’…in the sense that we are a royal preisthood, a holy nation? but maybe this verse is just for the super-duper extra special really very holy annointed people. ;-)

  3. Strictly speaking, the concept of pearly gates as part of a theology is questionable.

    @Davida… so I get to heaven if I touch myself?

    Sorry couldn’t resist.

  4. Psalm 105:12-15 & 1 Chr 16:19-22
    When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it. When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people; He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

    Yeah – this verse on “they and them” being the “Lords anointed” will get you into a bunch of trouble with the authoritarians. It plainly says that “God’s people” are the “anointed ones”.
