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


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

    Why has it become so acceptable in our society to bash the foundations of any persons chosen religion.
    It is none of Bill OReily's business what i believe, nor is it his right to convince me i'm wrong about it.
    The only reason he's getting all this media play is because he's a big mouthy rich guy. ORielly thinks he's God himself. The ratings will show we aren't buying it.

    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

    Bill is actually right about something? You can't explain that!

    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…

    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.
