    Reblogged this on Liberalism is Trust Fucked with Prudence. Conservatism is Distrust Tainted with Fear and commented:
    I cotton to Deeper Waters Bashing Bill O’Reilly:“Now I understand that not everyone can be religious expert. This includes not just people on Fox, but CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, etc. You might be able to speak authoritatively on politics and other matters, but that does not necessarily mean you can do the same with religion. You can be an expert on politics and religion, but being an expert in one does not entail being an expert in the other”. “Bill O’Reilly was trying to make the story exciting instead of just telling the story. Of course, there is historical fiction that might paint in some details, but O’Reilly just really seems to detract from the story”. O’Reilly makes the claim that Mary Magdalene was the prostitute who came to Jesus in Luke 7. O’Reilly gives us the myth that Hitler sought the holy lance that was supposed to have been used on Jesus. there is a strong emphasis on Jesus’s claims to be God. This was not the message Jesus went around preaching. I do fully uphold the deity of Christ of course, and we should defend that, but the main message of Jesus was the Kingdom of God and God acting through Him as that King. O’Reilly gives the impression the gospels were written to show the deity of Christ. They were written to show the life and message. Deity is a part of that, but not the message entire.
