While all the craziness of the Komen-Planned Parenthood debacle was blowing up last week, something sliped by a little under the radar. It was the National Prayer Breakfast. I'm not surprised that something seemingly so benign would go relatively unnoticed. It basically existed as just a little blip on the ticker at the bottom of the crowded news feed. I think a few conservative talking heads used it to take some cheap shots at the President regarding the mingling of his personal faith and policies derived from that faith. Stop here, and take a moments to purge whatever cynicism you might have about all that.
Now let's move on to some of what was actually said last Thursday morning. Specifically, I want to highlight a segment given by best-selling author Eric Metaxas. As he shared his own story of conversion to the Christian faith, he confronted the difference between religiosity and true faith in Jesus Christ. This might play well in circles of the devout, but it brings a sharp edge to the masses of this nation.
