  • It’s so true. I was just thinking tonight about how people think they can get away with things and you never can. Even if you never get caught (which you usually do) it always effects you.

  • Character, integrity!. What was his legacy? If life was a Football game, he was great, Pro Bowl material, Top Notch. Life isn’t a game, he learned that in a tragic way. Listen people the BIBLE is clear about this:
    “but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
    1 JOHN 1:7

  • I think the dirty little secrets prove that no matter how generous and caring our hearts are, we all fall short of perfection. There is probably something somewhere that we prefer to hide from others–it’s consequences big or little.

    I also think we can honor and lament at the same time. In this case, he did good deeds that helped others and perhaps those deeds will change lives. And we can mourn whatever it is that appears to have happened in his character–bearing in mind that one piece of accurate information can change the whole story.

    God bless his wife and kids who will bear the weight of all this attention and grief in public.

  • Scott,

    I sent a tweet to you today about this, but wanted to respond in a little more detail. To begin, let me state that based on what I am hearing out of Nashville there is NO scenario in which Steve McNair comes out of this situation looking good. He did things wrong. However, his death was not a direct result of what he did wrong.

    My point earlier, most people would view the situation differently if McNair and his wife had agreed to separate and were each dating other people. I am not saying this would acceptable. However, it would wipe out the “dirty little secret” aspect here. That is what I disagree with – that is situation involves a secret.

    At this point, I don’t know and it doesn’t like you know if Steve McNair’s situation is comparable to Ted Haggard’s. Its not clear that McNair lied to anyone or concealed the relationship from his wife. We have all assumed (and probably rightly so) that McNair lied and covered up the fact he was seeing this 20 year old.

    I agree that sin, especially secret sin is destructive. The only that is relevant to me at this point is whether McNair had accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour.

    I agree with the commenter above who said “God bless his wife and kids who will bear the weight of all this attention and grief in public.”

  • I really don’t think there are any dirty little secrets because you can’t hide anything from God. On the news it said that McNair’s wife had no idea this was going on and yes that’s wrong. Should he have had to pay with his life? I don’t think so but God’s word says that the wages of sin is death. I can’t judge him because I know what God forgave me for and I’m thankful that his grace and mercy much more abound in my life.

  • This story also reminded me of the record in God’s word where a woman was caught in the act of adultery and they were going to stone her. Jesus Christ said to the people “let he who is without sin cast the first stone” and soon there weren’t any people around. We all fall short. God’s word is profitable for doctrine (right beieving and actions) reproof (to tell us where we’re off) and correction back to the right way of beiieving.
