The tragic story of Britney Spears has me thinking. The same thought crossed my mind when I saw interviews with Michael Jackson and Princess Diana. I also thought about this when I watched a documentary on Marilyn Monroe. We can expect the media to jump on these stories of famous people because it is going to make them money. If a celebrity ends up dead as a result it is even better because then they make even more money. What should our attitude be? Britney Spears is at the forefront of my thoughts on this issue because of the current news about her losing her two children. Obviously she has "made her bed" as we say and her current life is a result of her own sin and her own choices, but it is clear that this is a hurting young woman. Yet it seems that Christians are as quick as the next person to lap up any news of her tragic life. Just think of the media hype if she commits suicide as a result of all this. I realise that we have no realistic chance of sharing the gospel with her, but doesn't it seem like the Christian thing to do would be to pray for her instead of joining the world in its voyeurism? Should we not see her and others as the troubled people they are instead of condemning them as "wicked sinners who deserve all they were getting"? Anybody want a stone?
