Recently, Ann Coulter, made some rather disparaging remarks about Jews, and as a Christian I must address what she said. Let's begin with the cussing part first:
After the recent debates, Ann, a popular, conservative "Christian" felt the need to respond by tweeting her scandalous remarks which were also seasoned with the F*** word. By the way, do you realize that a Christian's words are to be "seasoned with grace?" Somehow this truth escaped Ann because her words were full of venom!!!! Yes, Yes, I know, no one's perfect, right? But this is the thing, born again Christians should be striving for perfection. How can I make such a bold statement? Basically, I'm quoting Jesus who also said:
“Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48)."
No pressure in that command, right? So what does it mean to be perfect? Well, the Greek word for perfect (used by Jesus in this verse) means: complete, human integrity, virtue, mature, perfect, finished...ugh yeah it pretty much means that the bar for those who claim allegiance to Jesus Christ is set very high. So let me ask you a question, is it mature for a grown "Christian" woman to use such a foul word? Does this show a woman of virtue, a woman who is being perfected by Christ, or a woman who is seeking to finish the Christian race with her head held high? Of course not. If Ann is going to continue claiming allegiance to Jesus Christ, then she needs to know what her Bible says about foul language:
Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear (Ephesians 4:29).
Ann, has a great responsibility to prove that she is more than just a political, nominal Christian:
But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was (James 1:22-24).
And, Ann needs to know that a day of judgment is coming, and she(and everyone else) will be asked to give an account for every careless word ever spoken:
But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. “For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned (Matthew 12:36-37)."
O.K. so if you have a habit (like Miss Coulter) of using foul language, you need to STOP and confess your sin because He is faithful & just to forgive you of all your sins & to cleanse you from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).
Now let's talk about what else Miss Ann Coulter had to say. She didn't just use inappropriate language, but she displayed her antisemitism for the world to see. Unfortunately, antisemitism is not new to the Gentile church, and almost 2,000 years ago, the Apostle Paul had to address this growing problem when he wrote these words:
I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says... (Romans 11:1-2a).
So this is what I would say if I had Ann's ear:
Did you not get the memo about Jesus being a Jew? Obviously not so let me clear this up for you: The One you are claiming to follow was born in Israel, and He is a Jew first. Please immediately open your Bible (that dusty book on your bookshelf) and read Romans Chapter 11. You need to know that being a Christian and a Jew/Israel hater is not compatible with Christianity. God loves His chosen ones, and He loves Israel. Please do not forget this ever again.
A Jew/Israel Loving Christ Follower
So, let me end my soap box by YELLING this admonition to anyone who will listen:
Christians need to get back to the Bible, stop their cursing, and pray for Israel & the Jews immediately !!!!!
By the way, God will bless you for blessing Israel, but He will also curse you for cursing Israel, and I don't want to be cursed...how bout you?
So will you join me in praying for Israel and for Ann Coulter too:
I am so thankful that You have not abandoned Your people because You are a covenant keeping God. Lord, I pray for Israel's safety, and I pray for the Shalom of Jerusalem. Father, open the eyes of Israel to see Messiah Yeshua and to say "Baruch Haba B'Shem Adonai" Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. Father, I ask that you would change Ann's heart and help her to see just how much You love the Jewish people and the Jewish nation.
B'Shem Yeshua HaMashiach- Amen!
