Be Honest With Yourself

Mirror 

Each night on the O’Reilly Factor, Bill closes with the “Tip of the Day.” Some “tips” suggest books to read, shows to see, habits to avoid or attitudes to develop. Last night’s tip was especially good. And it was Biblical! Continue reading

It’s Time To Declare War!

War.SpiritualArmor

Last night in an impassioned Talking Points memo, Fox News Commentator, Bill O’Reilly, said it is time to declare war on ISIS and other Muslim terrorist groups.

Following the public beheading of two American journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff, O’Reilly called for Congress to formally declare war on Islamic terrorists and for the President to sign it

There can be no doubt that ISIS and those of their ilk are at war with us. In a recent video one of their soldiers looked into the camera and sneered “I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established. And we will not stop… we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.” Continue reading

Did Jesus of Nazareth Really Live?

Jesus.Messiah

I have just finished reading Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s book Killing Jesus. 

O’Reilly has taken some heat for not affirming that Jesus was the Messiah, the Son of God.  While there are numerous references to Jesus as the Christ from  prophetic references, the preaching of John the Baptist, and the statements of Jesus himself, that was not the purpose of the book.   Continue reading

Race Relations. Dr. King. And Character

Race.KidsThe aftermath of the George Zimmerman murder trial in the death of 17-year-old Travyon Martin, has sparked renewed conversations regarding race relations in America.

Was America a Better Place in the 1950’s?

MickeyMouseClubThe death of Annette Funicello this week has sparked nostalgic reflections of the 1950’s and 60’s by many of us baby boomers.  She was an iconic figure, one of the original “ Mouseketeers,” in the Mickey Mouse Club that aired from 1955-1958.

The America of that era was a more innocent time.  A simpler time.  A wholesome time.    But was America a better place in the Fifties than it is today?  This question was asked by Bill O’Reilly to Monica Crowly and Alan Colmes.  That segment followed Bill’s talking points where in part he made these observations.

What’s Your View of the Bible?

Bible.Light.2Two men. Two views of the Bible.  One man is known world-wide.  The other man is unknown, except for a small circle of friends.  One man is bombastic and out-spoken.  The other man is plainspoken and unpretentious. One man is on TV.  The other man watches TV.

Two men.  Bill O’Reilly.  Nathan Eve.  Continue reading
