Yes Mr. Bill O’Reilly, We Do Thump Our Bibles

“The compelling argument is on the side of homosexuals.” “That’s where the compelling argument is. We’re Americans, we just want to be treated like everybody else.” “That is a compelling argument. And to deny that, you’ve got to have a very strong argument on the other side and the other side hasn’t been able to do anything but thump the Bible.” ~ Bill O’Reilly

Is Mr. O’reilly insinuating that “thumping the Bible” is a poor and un-compelling argument? Just curious here. Do you hear someone speaking?

Ahem… Mr. Bill, “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding.” ~ God, Job 38:4

  1. If we replied with our own human logic, just as they put their case with their human logic, the debate would most likely favour them.
    We speak with a higher voice. We speak with the words and authority of the only One who has a right to be heard: the omnipotent, creator God. The creator has the right to say how we should live – how we should use our bodies, and to warn of the dangers of mis-using them. So yes, we quote His Word!

      Amen! That’s what I’m talking about. Regardless of Mr. O’Reilly’s determination of what a compelling argument is, yours is valid and holds all weight! Blessings good friend

    Eventually homosexuality will win the day. Its inevitable. When we went against our Christian Forefathers and the Scriptures and passed the Civil Rights Act and it opened the door to all of this nonsense. Now there is no “reasonable argument” against anything that is immoral. The groundwork has been laid. We have sown to the wind we will reap the whirlwind.

      Sad… sad, but true. Nice use of Hosea by the way. Of course on another topic altogether, his next words were, “Even if you grow crops, aliens will consume them.” Good to hear from you! TC had a great time with your other half and the cool gang. 🙂

        Dawn was very impressed with the way TC handled the “gang”. The “gang” had a fantastic time and will remember that field trip for some time to come.
        And yes, the other topic is a very important one too. The thing that bothers me is how so much of the church today sanctions the invasion. They are saying that its a way to spread the Gospel and that its a good thing. Over and over again in scripture alien invasion is a judgment from God. The church needs to understand that as the alien presence grows and they begin to change our culture and politics the church will be more and more oppressed. This invasion will not help to spread the Gospel but will actually hinder it. There is a reason this country has been so successful in spreading the Gospel around the world. It is the historical precedent set by our people who submitted themselves to God, came here to this land and built it on our culture and biblical precepts. When aliens are allowed to flood in and bring their false gods with them and bring their anti-biblical cultures, when they begin to amass in greater and greater numbers we are in serious trouble. We have enough problems with out own people falling away from God, we don’t need to add all of this to it too.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Christians must do more.

    Evil is advancing at an astounding rate. Evil has an agenda. Evil is dedicated to its cause. Evil is relentless…

    Traditional Christians? By and large? The majority who refer to themselves as followers of Jesus?

    NOT following Him. Sitting on their hands. Dead in the pews. Little life. No Spirit. Instead of being the influencers are instead continually the influenced. Hooked up to their TV IV’s. Being led around by the nose by the MSM (including Fox News). The evidence for this is all around us and should be obvious.

    I was first somewhat offended by what Mr. Bill said. But then I realized that, regarding the appearance of effectiveness, he has a point. Though he made a broad statement, and though he did not reference all the good that is actually going on spiritually in that area, in terms of the general decline of the culture and Christians in general not coming up with their own compelling argument against the issue, he has a good point.

    Evil makes a compelling case and if Christians do not stand up with the most compelling case—THE WORDS OF LIFE—THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS—THE TEACHINGS OF THE LORD JESUS—THE GOSPEL OF LIFE—THE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE OF GOD—then evil wins. The evil argument starts making sense.

    America was founded on freedom. That includes the freedom to sin and thumb one’s nose at God. I am certainly not an advocate of same-sex marriage. But its apparent advance is simply another general sign of a culture going south because the majority of those who keep our culture strong have allowed themselves to grow weak.

    The good news, however, is that real Christians don’t riot. Real Christians love. Real Christians pray. Real Christians believe. And real Christians are the most dedicated and relentless people on the planet, invisible though they may appear, since much of their work is done anonymously in the spiritual world.

    And regarding good news that the MSM almost never reports, many, many people of that persuasion have been and are coming to repentance, though the organizations representing that lifestyle continue on unabated. The saved become saved because they experience the real love of God. They know they are loved by their Creator through the loving representatives of the Creator. He continues to seek and save.

    “The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.” [2 Peter 3:9]

    Yet, though distinct sides of the argument have developed and there is a political divide, sin is the common denominator among many on both sides. Regarding final destinations, “Christians” who are neither hot nor cold will end up in the same place as those they hate.

    “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.” [Matthew 5:13]

  5. Indeed. It’s not that we don’t have an argument. It is that those we debate with do not accept our “givens”.

      Very true. We have the most compelling of arguments, but as you say, these arguments are ignored by those who reject the Scripture as God-breathed. Blessings friend.
