Haiti and the Pat Robertson Paradox

"The alleged 1791 Haitian pact with the devil would put our Father on the side of slavery and Satan on the side of those seeking freedom. The reverse is actually the case. Satan is a "murderer from the beginning" (John 8:44), a thief who "comes only to steal and kill and destroy" (John 10:10) and seeks to make us "slaves to sin" (Rom. 6:17). Satan enslaves. God liberates." -- Jim Denison, president of the Center for Informed Faith and theologian-in-residence for the Baptist General Convention of Texas, from the first of three special opinion pieces about this topic he's writing for the Associated Baptist Press.

World Vision for HAITI

http://www.worldvision.org

Dear Pastor,

We are thankful to the thousands of pastors and churches across the country that reached out to World Vision in response to the devastating earthquake last week in Haiti. Many churches took a special offering last weekend for the relief work, and many more will do so this weekend. Because of your faithfulness, we have already sent two flights of relief supplies to the quake-a special offering last weekend for the relief work, and many more will do so this weekend. Because of your faithfulness, we have already sent two flights of relief supplies to the quake-turn — all this in addition to strengthening and responding to the needs within the existing 20 World Vision program areas in Haiti.

Unfortunately, we all know there is still much more to do. If you or your church hasn't yet made a donation, we would encourage you to take a special offering this weekend. You can sign up on our website, worldvisionchurches.org, or you can click here.

We have been updating worldvisionchurches.org with helpful information and resources for you and your congregation, including PowerPoint slides, a bulletin insert, fact sheets, and more. We would encourage you to check back regularly to see the latest relief efforts and to access helpful resources like the article "5 Myths of Disaster Relief". New content is being uploaded daily in order to provide you with the latest information and resources.

For those of you who have already contributed through World Vision or another ministry, we want to thank you again. It is a privilege for us to serve as a bridge between your church and the families of Haiti.

In Christ,

/s/ Rich Stearns

"I'm going to view this as a teaching moment and say if you are really concerned, and if you want to do the most good at this phase right now, the most good you can do is to give a generous offering ..."
