Words of Wisdom for the O’Reilly Situation Video – Bill Still
We humans are so pathetic in how we deal with life, and Christians are no exception. At least Christians know the right direction to follow, but we don’t do such a great job in following those directions, and the result is what happened to Bill O’Reilly.
My thanks to the commenter who offered Proverbs 16: 16-17. However, the verse before it and after it are just as important. So I’m trying to figure out how to squeeze all 4 proverbs on a single page. Impossible.
So then it hits me; why not do a whole report on this?
This is pure truth. It is a much more important message than anything else I talk about from the political realm.
Each of these wonderful proverbs can stand alone, but they are far more powerful when put together.
Proverbs 16: 15
How much better to get wisdom than gold,
to choose understanding rather than silver.
Proverbs 16: 16
The highway of the upright avoids evil;
He who guards his way guards his life.
Proverbs 16: 17
Pride goes before destruction,
A haughty spirit before a fall.
Proverbs 16: 18
Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed
Than to share plunder with the proud.
This hits the nail right on the head for the Bill O’Reilly situation.
O’Reilly has probably gone to church his entire life, but he let the cravings of the flesh and earthly power over other humans convince him that maybe he was the exception; maybe he didn’t have to follow the rules. May be he could get away with it.
The problem is that God’s justice is not always swift. So it fakes you out. You can get away with it most of the time if your only measure is the human justice system.
But God has his own justice system. Although you may never get caught by the human legal system, as a result of your cutting corners, you go farther and farther off the perfect path God has laid out for your life, and you end up in a place that is far, far from your intended home.
That’s a guaranteed unhappy place, no matter how much money you are able to acquire, or how many earthly pleasures you were able to feast upon in getting there.
But don’t think that I’m a know-it-all, holier-than-thou Christian. I tremble in fear of my arrogance AND ignorance because of this proverb:
Proverbs 26: 12
“Do you see a man wise in his own eyes?”
“There is more hope for a fool than for him.”
And here is just how far from the truth Bill Still really is at any given time, on any given topic:
1 Corinthians 13: 12
“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face;
“Now I know in part, but then I will know fully
just as I also have been fully known.”
FULLY KNOWN. What does that mean? I have to remember that one day, all my past sins – will be fully known to everyone – my mother, my father, my friends and family. God help me.
There is only one way to escape God’s justice. There is only one way not to live in fear of what you really deserve – exposure, embarrassment, humiliation. Seek the merciful forgiveness, freely offered by Jesus, who paid the price for all those sins when he volunteered for a horrible death on the cross. His forgiveness is the only hope any of us have.
Right now, really close to you, there is a Christian pastor who heads up a Christian church in every town in this wonderful country. They will be really happy to help you take the next step, which is to pray the Sinner’s Prayer.
I guarantee that you will absolutely make that Pastor’s day to be the one who gets to teach you that prayer.
The beauty of it is that you don’t need to know anything religion-wise, or be anyone special, and it doesn’t matter how many evil things you’ve done in the past, either.
All you need, is to be a sinner who feels a burden – guilty – from your past sins.
