Open Letter to Lance Armstrong

Open letter to Lance Armstrong


So many admired you for all your great cycling accomplishments and multitudes were disappointed to learn your achievements were tainted with cheating. But, Americans are a forgiving people and most will eagerly accept your apology.

We who are Christ-followers have all been where you are, Lance. We have all sinned and fallen short of the expectations of God. Running to Oprah to record a national apology is futile if your apology is meant to rebuild your lost reputation. True repentance must be accompanied by pure motives. Trying to cleanse yourself in Oprah's dirty pool of therapy will not bring peace to your soul. It's like trying to clean our hearts with dirty water taken from our hearts.

Your rush for therapy is a microscopic revelation of what is really wrong with America. We have grown comfortable seeking therapy from humans who are just as fallen as we are. The greatest sin in America today is the idea that we can come to repentance without a Mediator, the belief that repentance has no personal cost or sacrifice and that we can be converted to Christianity without the shedding of blood.

Lance, true forgiveness that will bring closure to your sin of dishonesty and relief and comfort to your soul will come from Christ, not Oprah. Seek him while you still can.

Kevin teaches history and government at a Christian high school in Columbus, Georgia. He writes about politics, religion and culture.
