Mel Gibson isn't the hero, Jesus is!

I've been thinking about what, if anything, to say about my disappointment in Mel Gibson, director of the wonderful film, The Passion of the Christ, for his recent arrest for drunk driving and anti-Semitic remarks. Then I ran across Joel Rainey's blog in which he reminds us that we make heroes out of Christians who are still sinners and we forget that the real hero is the Lord. Says Rainey:
"We forget that Abraham was, at heart, a liar, David an adulterer, Solomon a
pervert, Elijah a whiner, John a doubter, and Peter an indecisive hot-head."
How true!
