Joe the Plumber is now a reporter in the Gaza Strip.
Y'Know... This guy bugs me. He keeps getting back in the spotlight by banking on his lack of credentials, a problem evident in his public label since he isn't even actually a plumber.
"But, Lord, why are there only one set of footprints on the minefield?"Wurzelbacher told WNWO he’s not worried about the potential dangers of his new gig. "Being a Christian I'm pretty well protected by God I believe. That's not saying he's going to stop a mortar for me, but you gotta take the chance,” he told the CNN affiliate.
This kind of theology bugs me. It presupposes that every action a person takes is the will of God and that divine protection is issued to believers, who do God's will in any exerting activity. It's inside-out protestant work ethic coupled with predestination and a dash of dominionism.
Just... Just a bit of theology here. Maybe Christians should start off assuming that anything they want to do or feel led to do ISN'T God's will and should be able to justify it, shy of a direct command from an angel with a flaming sword.
Heck, that's just a gratuitous drop that he's a Christian since he isn't claiming it will make a difference. Whatever happened to "Do not tempt the Lord thy God"...?
Oy vey, JTP.
