Another Christian in the Crosshairs

The Left wing media are now after another Conservative. This time it is the outspoken Conservative, Ann Coulter. The latest furor erupted over an exchange Coulter had Monday with CNBC host Donny Deutsch on his show, "The Big Idea," during which she said the country would be better off if everyone were Christian. When Deutsch -- who is Jewish -- asked if she wanted to get rid of Judaism, Coulter responded, "We just want Jews to be perfected."

Some Jews are outraged and are calling for Ann’s head. The picture that immediately came to my mind was St.Paul standing before King Agrippa. Agrippa said to Paul, “Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.” And Paul replied, “I would to God, that not only thou, but also all that hear me this day, were both almost, and altogether such as I am, except these bonds.”

There was neither prejudice nor superiority in Paul’s profession. Paul just wished for King Agrippa, all the blessings of recognizing the king’s own Messiah. Can’t you just imagine the trouble for Paul today if he suggested something like that?

How easy it is to misinterpret someones comment. That is why we need the gifts of the Holy Spirit to be in operation. His Word of wisdom and Word of knowledge is
so special. Being in a covenant with Abraham, and in Christ Jesus just gives us a peace that political words and induendos can't understand.Lets pray for the peace of Jerusalem as well as our political commentators. John 12:32 Jesus himself asks us to lift Him up on the cross and HE WILL DRAW ALL MEN TO HIM. What a better way to spend our time and effort.
