Everyone is holding forth on the “Duck Dynasty,” A&E anti-Christian firing of Phil Robertson. I never watched the show, but I understand it was the Network’s most profitable offering to date. I’m sure no one is surprised at the backlash from Christians. Perhaps A&E is a little surprised! But what is truly disturbing under all of this – the biggest mouth and ego anywhere on television has rendered his multi-million dollar opinion. I know many Christians who hang on O’Reilly’s every word.
What Does the Fox Say? You’re Stupid
What does the Fox say? You’re stupid.
The number one conservative talk show on television just sent evangelicals a Christmas present. It’s a box of antipathy wrapped with condescension with a card that says, “You are a moron.” No exchanges allowed.
In response to the Duck Debacle, Bill O’Reilly judged Phil Robertson for judging homosexuals. The irony was caught by everyone but TV’s number one pontificator who mangled Scripture beyond recognition to inform us Jesus would never judge anyone. That is true, except for the temple merchants, Zaccheus, the woman at the well, the Pharisees, the disciples and one day, the entire world.
Bill claims that Christians cannot tell anyone that they are going to hell. He must not have studied Matt. 18:15-20 for “Killing Jesus.”
Bernie Goldberg chimed in by calling evangelicals and the Apostle Paul himself, “ignoramuses.” He seethed that we are ignorant and so is the Bible.
Bottom line: evangelicals can hold onto their stupid theology but we better keep it to our stupid selves. And these are our friends.
What is the moral to the Duck Dynasty disaster? Christians are a stone’s throw away from stones being thrown.
I think I’ll hang on God’s Word – and not the ignorant, prideful words, of Bill O’Reilly or anyone else. . .
1 Peter 4:4-7
King James Version (KJV)
4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
5 Who shall give account to Him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
6 For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
