Pastor Joel Webbon
Sep 26, 2020

"Pastor Joel, Does the Bible call Christians to exercise empathy? Certainly, Scripture commands us to show sympathy to others, but does empathy perhaps go too far? "

NOTES: ( x) Pastor Joel Webbon - President and Founder of Right Response Ministries (sent invitation to a dialogue.)

  • an add on discussion by another pastor on the topic.

  • Empathy is jumping into the quicksand with the person

  • Jumping into their self pity, getting entangled.

  • Instead try to help with sympathy.. Keep you one hand on the branch and pull the person out.

  • This is again seen from the individualistic perspective.
