I happened to catch the first couple of minutes of "The Vi-ew" this morning. Did any of you see it? I hardly ever watch this show. As a matter of fact, it's very rare that we have the T.V. on at this time of the morning. But, what I heard in just those first couple of minutes made my draw drop and I have been bothered by it ever since.
The hosts were talking about the new Tom Ha-nks movie coming out today, "Ang-els and De-mons" the sequel to "The Da-Vinci Co-de". One host asked the other, "Do you believe that there is an after life?" One of the hosts said "yes, absolutely" and then gave some crud that wasn't supported Biblically to back it up.
Then, Barb-ara Wal-ters and Joy whats-her-name said that they did not believe in anything at all. THEN, if that weren't shocking enough, Whoo-pi Gold-berg said, "God never says anything about people going to hell. He just wants us to love everyone."
Oh my. Maybe I'm naive, but I assumed that even though most people are probably not saved, they most likely do believe that there is a God. Where did Whoo-pi get her basis to even say such a quote? Have any of these women read any part of the Bible?
I am still flabbergasted. If this isn't a wake up call, people, I don't know what is. Why am I assuming that most Americans believe there is a God? Maybe the reality is that most people don't believe in anything!
What this proves is that simply believing isn't enough.
