Bill O'Reilly blasphemes God; pushes his book over Bible

_MG_2252

Fox News pundit Bill O’Reilly is responding to emails from concerned Christians, upset that he says Old Testament stories are made-up fiction. But the Factor host says that anyone who thinks the Bible accounts of creation are true rather than allegorical are “judgmental, and if you demand people believe that you do, that’s a very BAD thing, as we see with the Jihad movement.”

And when another Christian emailed the show and said, “Jesus taught Adam and Eve and Jonah and the whale as literal history, not allegory,” he responded with this:

That is entirely false. That is wrong. It never happened. So you should pre-order my book, ‘Killing Jesus,’ which will have the truth.”

His blatant disregard for truth prompted one pastor from Washington State to pen An Open Letter To Bill O’Reilly:

March 1, 2013
To: Bill O’Reilly

You said that you were writing a historical book called Killing Jesus, based on the Gospels.

But in a very pharisaical way, you stated that the Gospels had obvious contradictions and it would be you, who would give the true narrative of what really happened.

Your “unbalanced” approached sounds like you know more about the Bible than Jesus. With that kind of arrogance, it will be you who will crucify the biblical truth. You did a great job with Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy. But you are not the self-appointed spokesman for Jesus.

At every Holy Mass that you attend, the Priest reads from the Holy Bible, quoting the Gospels. He ends his reading by stating: “This IS the Word of The Lord.” To which you reply: “Thanks be to God.” So are you thanking God for something that is not true? Do you consult your parish priest after the Mass and impose your beliefs about the obvious contradictions in his homily?

I can recommend several biblical scholars that can help clear any of your potential contradictions. Start with Dr. Norman Geisler or Dr. William Craig.

Finally, Jesus said:

“But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe. You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.” —John 5:38–40

    Bill O'Reilly is to news reporting and commentary as Joel Osteen is to the Bride of Christ: a rich, arrogant, unknowledgable fool who constructs his own god and expects others to worship that god through himself. All the while refusing to believe and accept the Truth given to all mankind through Jesus Christ the Lord.

      Excellent comment and fit description of this man. I fear for him… I truly do.. He is becoming more pompous and proud with each passing day.He has no idea that he will eventually have to give an account before a terrifyingly Holy God for the millions of people he has lead away from the truth with his program and his soon to be released blasphemous book. He may even be the catalyst that helps bring about future persecution of Christians in America. He will no doubt be leading the charge to rid the world of 'judgmental' people like us. He is a god to himself…that is why he believes the Bible is just allegory. God is just whatever you want him to be…just a nice big guy in the sky…but.never the God of the Bible who is sovereign over all and in control of even the likes of Bill O'Reily. No, he doesn't like that God at all!

          No complex at all. Look around you! Christians ARE being marginalized. More and more news stories every day. The climate is changing rapidly. Will pastors be allowed to preach against homosexuality in their churches much longer? (Canada just out-lawed it as 'hate speech' and a pastor there was heavily fined.) Home Bible studies are already being out-lawed in some parts of the country and there are reports of Christians being arrested for simply sharing their faith on a public sidewalk. Did you happen to catch Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago and see the shameful movie trailer they did attacking the person of Jesus Christ..mocking him, calling him a vicious murderer? How do the Muslims like it when anyone dares to say anything negative about Mohammed, who, by the way, WAS a murderer and worse. We all know how they respond to an attack on their religion and beliefs, don't we? Christians are an easy target. If you can't see that the climate in this country is changing, you are blind. But it will be evident soon even to one like yourself..who refers to Christians as 'you people'. .

            well the neo nazis are also being marginzed, and you not complaining, and as well Jesus according to the Apocalypse of Saint John is going to "righteously destroy" the wicked, so its not that inaccurate, like i was saying you make mountains out of molehills

        Bill is one of your people, a right-winged wing-nut! i am suprised on how quickly you people turn against each other! "He will no doubt be leading the charge to rid the world of ‘judgmental’ people like us. "

        HE IS ONE OF YOUR PEOPLE HE IS EXTRMELY JUDGEMENTAL so why would he be getting rid of people that thinks like him?

          Bill is one of MY people? How can you speak for me? You don't even know me. You just judged me…someone you have never even met…so who is being judgmental here, Tony? I haven't turned against him because was never for him in the first place. Have I agreed with the man at times? Probably, some times. But I also think Alan Combs is a very decent, humble person …unlike Mr. O'Reily… and yet I agree with Alan probably zero % of the time. Bill had Alan on the other night and ranted and raved, even yelling at Combs. It was shameful and I thought Bill made a complete fool of himself. I don't even remember the topic…just Bill's pompous rude behavior and Alan trying hard to get in a word or two…never raising his voice, keeping his cool in a difficult spot. Am I for Alan Combs…yes, in a sense I am because he does not try to clobber people over the head with his views. He doesn't try to silence or demean them or incite hate towards them. Always a gentleman. But agree with him on most issues…no I don't!

          But Bill proudly proclaims he's a Christian…yet he does not act like one and he doesn't believe like one either. He does not hold to even the basic tenets of the Christian faith or believe the Bible is the Word of God. In the above video, he proclaimed his distain for all of us who DO believe every word of the Bible. Not only does he not like us, he intends to aggressively attack Bible believers and marginalize them so they can no longer be heard. So, no Tony, he is and never has been any friend of mine nor of most true Christians

          Maybe your problem is that you have never met a real Christian. There are many who claim to be Christians today.., but in reality, are not…especially if they are putting their faith in a man like O'Reily.

            he is a conservative like you….so how could i be wrong? There is a differance in judging you and saying the truth

            "maybe your problem is that you have never met a real Christian. There are many who claim to be Christians today.., but in reality, are not…especially if they are putting their faith in a man like O’Reily."

            please see no true scotsman

          Neo-nazis are being marginalized? What planet do you live on? And…if that were, true….yes, that would be a good thing and, you're right, I won't be complaining. Do you want another Hitler ruling over you? Maybe you had better go back and bone up on the history of 20th century history.

          And, yes, Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all, WILL come back and destroy all the wicked…all those who have rejected the way of salvation through his Son. those who died in their sins because they refused the free gift of forgiveness He so graciously offered to them. He gets to decide what the rules because He is God. Try accusing Him of being judgmental…it will get you nowhere. You will cower before Him one day without Christ as your covering.

          I pray your heart will soften,..that you will see your need of a Savior, recognize who Jesus is, what He has done for you, and come to trust Him.

            I can t repent even if i wanted to because of total depravity remember?Jesus died only for the elect, and predestined me for hell. And yes Neo-Nazis are marginalized,you clearly have no idea of what is a neo-nazi…..

            "He gets to decide what the rules because He is God. Try accusing Him of being judgmental…it will get you nowhere. "

            HAHAHAHA are you kidding me? you really have no idea of who the 10 commandments are meant for right? and as well are you saying that might is iright? that as long as you are stronger than the other guy you can make whatever law you wanted it to be?

            Hi Rose… The bible says, "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." 1 Corinthians2:14 and "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."2 Corinthians 4:4. Bottom line Sis…. There is no sense in trying to convince unbelievers that Jesus is the Son of God because the enemy has blinded them. Our obligation is to pray for the harvest to come.

    Those that think themselves wise, would be foolish to the Lord. He who builds his own pedistal, does so without true wisdom or skill. Bill is like a clanging gong, all noise and no enjoyment. Tsk Tsk Bill, shame on you, pride has you fastening your own crown, royalty you are not, king of kings your are not, your crown of thorns only produces pus and it reaks. Your fruit rots, but God bless you Bill, May HE who is Truth, set you free from your SELF…

    You must be filled with the "Holy Spirit" to understand the Bible. Christ living in you. We do not pray to Mary or the profits, or the pope. We pray to God in Spirit & Truth . In Jesus name only. I pray Bill will have a relationship with Christ. Not a religion. Amen
