News anchor recommends Christianity for Woods

J. Grant Swank, Jr.

Brit Hume stated: “If Tiger Woods made a true conversion we would know it. It would show through in his being and he would know it above all. And he would feel the extraordinary blessing that that would be. . .It would be a shining light. It would be a magnificent thing to Woods.”

Bill O’Reilly asked Hume to explain what Hume meant by urging Woods to turn to the “Christian faith” and find “total recovery.”

Hume had made that recommendation on Fox News Sunday. Hume counseled Woods to find forgiveness in the Christian faith.

Hume elaborated more fully in his dialogue with O’Reilly. Hume stated that Woods, caught in scandals, could find Christ. In that discovery, Woods could experience a “true conversion.”

O’Reilly then referred to the days of Bill Clinton’s sex scandals. Then Jesse Jackson and other religious figures gathered around Clinton. Clinton also was counseled by some to return to the Bible of his youth.

O’Reilly implied that a lot of that was religious hype and not a sincere conversion to Christ.

Hume on the other hand responded by pointing to Chuck Colson’s change of soul. Colson, caught in the Watergate scandal, confessed his sins to Christ, consecrated his life to Christ’s mission, and since then has worked night and day as a biblical believer. In other words, Colson’s spiritual profession has worked its way into real-life real-time.

Hume said on Fox News Sunday: Woods should “turn to the Christian faith and. . .make a total recovery.” Tiger, Hume stated, needs something Christianity especially provides. . .redemption and forgiveness.

Hume said to O’Reilly that “Jesus Christ offers Tiger Woods something Tiger Woods desperately needs.”

Hume, referring to some pointed criticism received, warned that the Bible states that if someone mentions “Jesus Christ” that “all hell breaks loose. It is explosive.”

In other words, Hume expected the reaction of some who scolded that he was speaking out of turn by mentioning Christianity in the context of Tiger Woods’ present situation.

Biblical believers worldwide know that divine warning to be real in their own lives. The world is spiritually fallen and does not in the main like the Savior Christ.

To line up with Savior Christ is to live by His ethic of holiness. Most persons do not want that. They are content with sin and self-centered lifestyles.

Christ Himself taught His disciples to expect that reaction. Christ counseled that the wide road is crowded with mortals headed toward damnation. The road is straight and narrow that leads heavenward.

Matthew 7:13-14: "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
