Let’s talk about something controversial. Specifically Brit Hume’s hugely protested statement on Bill O’Reilly about Tiger Woods needing Jesus Christ is his life. I am so proud of that man and his confidence and forthcoming. I am so incredibly glad he stood up for the truth–on national TV nonetheless! I read some of the reactions and cannot believe the gall of some people. If the tables were turned, and Hume had announced that Buddhism, Hinduism, or any other religion in the world was the answer, everyone in the public and liberal arenas would have jumped for joy and ran into the streets to celebrate his open-minded views and politically correct-ness! I loved the way one poster on the Huffington Post worded it: “If you’re dealing with Jesus Christ, you’re dealing with God. If you’re having to deal with God, you’re having to deal with your own sin problem, and that instinctively offends people.” It’s amazing the kind of reactions you pull out of people when you bring up God or His Son. Goodness.
If it has only been a little over 24 hours and this kind of hatred is being put out on the internet, what is it going to be like when it is perfectly legal to drag people out of their homes and beat them to death on the streets for saying things like this? There are AT LEAST 35 nations in our world right now that have anti-Christian laws that lead to Christians being harassed, imprisoned, deprived of possessions and liberties, or killed because of their witness. They are also prevented from obtaining Bibles or other Christian literature.
Who knows how long it will be before America becomes one of those places?
