Watch Out for
those Dangerous Radical Christians
again, Christianity takes a slap in the face in the public media,
and once again, more than likely, nothing will be done about it.
More than likely, there will be no apologies, no remorse, no regret,
from the speaker, the producer, the television network, or anyone
with any authority who is remotely connected to the incident.
On Tuesday, September 12, Rosie ODonnell, the famous homosexual
comedian, publicly decried radical Christians on the
ABC talk show, The View. ODonnell moderates the Emmy award
winning daytime show, along with co-hosts, Joy Behar, Elizabeth
Hasselbeck, and Barbara Walters. The subject of discussion was radical
Islam. Hasselbeck made the statement that radical Islam was a threat
to free people in America. Just a minute, ODonnell
interrupted. Radical Christianity is just as threatening as
radical Islam in a country like America where we have separation
of church and state."
had already stated that America was attacked on September 11,
not by a nation. She continued, And as a result
of the attack and the killing of nearly 3,000 innocent people
we invaded two countries and killed innocent people. Joy
Behar, interposed that Christians are not threatening to impose
mass murder on Americans.
that difference. This group is threatening to kill us, Behar
said. Hasselback, also surprised, said, We are not bombing
ourselves here in the country. However, ODonnell
continued her line saying, No, but we are bombing innocent
people in other countries. True or false?
certainly dont agree with everything the government has
done in the handling of every facet of this war, or any other
war. However, I dont, for one minute believe that America
has ever been guilty of deliberately bombing innocent people
in other countries. Whether or not Rosie ODonnell
really believes what she said, she is playing a game with words.
Her statements are a classical example of the way systematic evil
works. There are, perhaps, tens or hundreds of thousands of people
who will hear about these statements and will begin to think
could she be right? It doesnt sound right,
but I cant really pinpoint whats wrong about it!
Satan pulled the same stunt in the Garden of Eden. He used half
truths in order to lie to Eve; he never used full fabrications.
First he questioned God, and then he told Eve she would not die.
She didnt die physically on the day that she ate, but her
eternal spiritual nature did die. She did gain an extremely limited
knowledge of good and evil, enough to know she was naked, but
certainly gained no knowledge like that of God. Such half
truth deceptions are far more dangerous as lies than outright
fabrications. This is the kind of evil speech that ODonnell
is foisting upon us.
do you define radical? I would be inclined to define
a radical Christian as someone who is intensely sold
out to Christ, someone who truly loves God with all his or her
heart, mind, soul, and strength, and someone who loves ones
neighbor as ones self. In other words, I would call a radical
Christian, a dedicated Christian. ODonnell would
contend such a radical Christian does not exist, by definition.
She would insist that a radical Christian is someone who tries
to bomb abortion clinics, beat homosexuals to death, and perform,
perhaps, other types of violent and horrible acts. I believe ODonnell
would try to make you think there is no difference between this
type of individual, and the individual that would insist that
abortion is murder, that homosexuality is sin, that voluntary
prayer in schools should be legal, and Christianity should be
respected as a heritage in America. Is it possible that Rosie
ODonnell really thinks that any conservative, dedicated
Christian is just as mean and nasty and hateful as somebody who
would kill an abortion doctor, or hate a homosexual? The point
is: it really doesnt matter what Rosie ODonnell thinks.
What matters is what the massive millions of non-Christian people
in America may be led to think about Christianity, because of
such outrageously irresponsible and inflammatory comments from
a TV talk show host.
you a Christian? Be clear to all people about the truth. Tell
them you will always hate the sin, but like Christ you will love
the sinner. Tell them, that you will pray for, reach out, and
try to help the homosexual find the true love and peace that he
or she is searching for in Christ. However, tell them, in meekness
and humility, that you will never condone homosexuality, because
the Bible says it is sin. To condone it would be the same as condoning
the act of a child pornographer, or the thief, or the murder.
Are you a non-Christian? Please be aware that Rosie ODonnell
is dead wrong about real Christianity. She knows nothing about
real Christianity, because she has never experienced it. However,
you can know the wonder of the real peace of Jesus Christ if you
will confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe
with your heart that God hath raised him from the dead.
