Lawrence O’Donnell, host of a cable news show on MSNBC, recently made a vicious, anti-Christian slur.
In an interview, O’Donnell called the Book of Revelation “a work of fiction” that portrays a “a truly vicious God.” He further stated that “no half-smart religious person actually believes the book of Revelation.” And even called God a “malicious torturer and mass murderer beyond Hitler’s wildest dreams.”
Although the Book of Revelation is subject to many different interpretations, the general message of the Book is very clear: God will vindicate His people and judge the world in righteousness through His Son Jesus Christ. The fact that Lawrence O’Donnell finds the message objectionable does not change that fact.
To condemn God as a mass murderer belies O’Donnell’s proud heart. What ought to amaze O’Donnell is that God has been so patient with a creation that refuses to believe and repent of their many sins. Exalting sinful man and debasing a Holy God is the common way sinners rationalize their rebellion.
God has made a gracious way of escape from his wrath through faith in His Son. The fear of the Lord remains the beginning of wisdom.
O’Donnell either doesn’t believe in the God of the Bible in all His fearsome wrath, nor in the Gospel of Jesus Christ who promises eternal life to all who put their trust in Him. No wonder he’s lashing out.
Even still, if he had said this about any other faith he would have been canned on the spot.
Help us urge O’Donnell to do the right thing and apologize for his anti-Christian bigotry.
