News Flash - Wise Men Got It Wrong
There are so called "Wise
Men" in America today that have the ear of many people. In
the last two days, two of these have gotten it wrong in a huge way.
Just last night I watched a
video of Bill O'Reilly (on Fox News) interview pastor of First Baptist
Church of Dallas, Dr. Robert Jeffress. The topic was "Is
There Life After Death". Of course, Dr. Jeffress did a great
job of explaining the Biblical view on this topic. However, the
most interesting part of the interview to me was Bill O'Reilly's
misguided idea of how to get to Heaven. Mr. O'Reilly clearly
stated that "if there is a heaven, you have to earn your way
in." He repeated this idea a couple of times as Dr. Jeffress
listened. Dr. Jeffress did a good job of explaining that trusting
Christ is the key and that works come after faith in Christ as a
demonstration of that faith. Bill continued to talk about being
religious and that there is a judgement day. Again, Dr. Jeffress
restated the need to trust in Christ and that true faith in Christ will
manifest itself in a life that reflects that faith. In the little
time he had, Dr. Jeffress kindly, but directly rebutted Mr. O'Reilly's
idea of works and deeds.
Bill O'Reilly got it wrong!
Another so called wise man
(although I would strongly disagree) who has the ear of many people is
New York City mayor, Michael Bloomberg. He told the New York
Times that based on his work on gun control and fighting smoking and
obesity, "I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven
I'm not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned
my place in heaven. It's not even close,"
Bloomberg got it wrong!
Unfortunately, these views and
others like it are prevalent in America today (even inside our
churches). The Bible is very clear. Christ paid it all at
the cross of Calvary.
