Bill O’Reilly is Killing Jesus

I’m researching Killing Jesus, do you know why Jesus was killed, by the Romans? … You don’t know and you shouldn’t know because it was about taxes, taxes!” – Bill O’Reilly, The O’Reilly Factor, March 2013 (see here: Jesus killed over taxes)

Now, I am no expert on Jesus Christ or the Roman occupation of Judea in the first century A.D., but I am a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ and once, on the way to visit my in-laws, I slept in a Holiday Inn Express. But it wasn’t until that statement, from the renowned theologian Bill O’Reilly of Fox News, that I realized the true reason that Jesus Christ was killed was not atonement, redemption, propitiation or reconciliation, but “Taxes! It was taxes!”

I know, right! Those Romans are brutal! I mean, the IRS raided Willie Nelson and jailed Wesley Snipes, but crucifixion? That’s just medieval!

On Tuesday, the 24th of September, Killing Jesus: A History by BILL O’REILLY (in big bold all caps and the same font size as the words “KILLING JESUS”) and Martin Dugard (you better be wearing your bi-focals to see his name, but he’s the guy who does all the work and gets none of the credit; well, in this case – none of the blame) will arrive in bookstores and on e-shelves.

And according to the prophet of the “No spin zone,” the guy who said, “render unto Caesar” and who miraculously summoned a fish with a silver coin to pay, not only his own taxes but also that of his servant Peter, was somehow the spearhead of a tax revolt against the Romans.

The history of the Greeks, the Romans, the Christians and the Jews deny this, as does Christ himself, who, in a less than Simon bar Kokhba moment, told Pilate to the face that his kingdom was not of this world else his servants would fight. But then again maybe Fox’s own Ron Burgundy and his ghostwriter have discovered something that thousands of scholars, billions of words, and history itself have overlooked?

The write-up of the book promises to “take readers inside Jesus’s life, recounting the seismic political and historical events that made his death inevitable – and changed the world forever.” Now, I’m all for tax revolts, but has the death of any tax revolutionary really “changed the world forever?”

And I’m pretty confident that the death of Jesus was inevitable because God decreed it and prophecy declared it:
Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain. (Acts 2:23)

The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done. (Acts 4:26-28)

After all, wasn’t Pontius Pilate reluctant to the last minute? Do you really think that a Roman Procurator would pause for reflection in the face of a tax revolt? A man renowned for his cruelty?

As a student with intellectual curiosity and somewhere around 3,000 theological volumes in my library, I appreciate the diversity among the scholars that appear there. I have the early church fathers, the great minds of the Reformation, Catholics, Calvinists, skeptics, scoffers and even atheists; though I must admit that O’Reilly will be the first theologian to grace my shelves that has been sued by a former producer for offering to introduce a falafel into her nether regions. But as a Christian who believes in redemption, I was excited to hear that the trouble-making Roman Catholic kid who was the bane of his Catholic school had grown up to write a book about Jesus. What an opportunity for a man who has truly been blessed with a magnificent platform and millions of viewers. How sad that he wasted such a golden opportunity. How truly tragic.

As nutty as Louis Farrakhan sounds when he claims that a Jew of the house of David and the tribe of Judah was black, as loopy as those in Queer Nation who claim that Jesus was “a gay man, extraordinarily gay, steeped in gayness,” nothing quite compares to the complete denial of thousands of years of Jewish prophecy and two millennia of Christian tradition. Not even Dan Brown had the chutzpah to write his anti-Christian screed as a work of non-fiction. That’s right “folks,” you don’t see this kind of pride and prejudice outside of the major cults or the halls of Pandemonium.

The fresh, bold piece of humanity has revealed himself as the hot steaming pile of vanity that both Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh have warned us about by implication for years. O’Reilly’s wacky, unhinged conjectures promise to make Oliver Stone seem like St. Augustine. Imagine the ego that went into his decision to straighten out God, history, tradition and even the skeptics about the life and death of Jesus Christ? Imagine the arrogant naiveté to suggest that a history of the death of Jesus belongs on the same shelf as Lincoln’s and JFK’s?

And the irony of a man who boasts, “The Factor has stood up for Christmas for fifteen years, defending the holiday from secular progressives.” I guess it’s all right to have Christ in Christmas but let’s revisit that whole Easter Sunday thing. So, we have been wrong all along with the “Christ died for your sins” confession; actually we should revise that to “Jesus died for your deductions!”

But will the Factor-heads bail him out on this one? You betcha! O’Reilly could “ralph” into the Holy Grail and there would be a bidding war on ebay. He still lives off the fumes of the average person’s middle finger to the media in their disdain of mainstream propaganda and their appreciation of Fox as a reliable news source. As for me, I would rather have him sign my loofah than toss him thirty pieces of silver like the Fox lemmings that will buy anything that bears his name and visage. How’s that for pithy?

The question that we must ask, that even fans of The Factor must demand, is why? Why would he write this book and why should we continue to pretend that Bill O’Reilly hasn’t morphed into the media version of the perpetual thumb in the eye that is John McCain? If I’m wrong about his following, and I hope that I am, then the title of his next book will be, “KILLING RATINGS”!

I leave you, my dear reader, to your own better discretion on whether to buy this book or support this man but let me just point out a question that should make “the folks” uncomfortable. “When is MSNBC more reliable than Fox News?” The answer is when Martin Bashir has to correct Bill O’Reilly about the true reason for the death of Christ.

Martin Bashir,

You don’t know and you shouldn’t know because it was about taxes?’ Well, as anyone with a modicum of Biblical history will tell you, the death of Christ was an act of substitutionary atonement for the sins of the world. He neither lived nor died for taxes, in fact he simply said that one should discharge one’s responsibilities to the state by rendering unto Caesar that which was Caesar’s. But the purpose and meaning of his death is spelled out by the prophet Isaiah:

He was pierced for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities. The punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

“He died for the sins of the world,” continued Bashir, “including the lies and the misappropriation of his life by those whose sole purpose is to make money at his expense.”

      Billy O chastizes us for bloviating and many other words he sets rules by for response; yet he chooses to prostitute Our Savior and the Book of Life for his gain and then “puff up” and under the guize of sharing, brag about his charity………..but hey….He’s just a simple guy!

          God does have a wonderful sense of humor. He has given us the ability to laugh at ourselves and forgive ourselves as He has forgiven us. All around us are God’s creations for us to delight in. These are the things we should look at to give us hope and relief from the ugliness lurking in the hearts of some men.

            Blue Violets, I am so very happy to read your post; I wrestled with posting as I did for a few minutes; the next thought oh, my, what have I done? The next thought was oh, what will I read counter to my post. Thank you for your uplifting words. I look at the night skies and weep for with the USAF/Commercial Liners and HAARP, you seldom get to see the beautiful night skies even partially. August 29, was a rare event with Mars closer than ever for about 600 years or more! It was accompanied by other planets, constellations, etc. Here, it was covered! The skies are my favorites to view so it hurts me when I cannot; the mountains are a place of power for me to go but without a car, unable to even get close….God has seen the need to bring me totally down; I am experiencing what Job did in a modern sense; I will survive through faith and hope. God Bless You.

          • BlueViolets

            I too enjoy the sky. My family always know that I will be showing them yet another picture of a sunset every time they see me. I can’t see the night sky much anymore either where I live but the little I can see leaves me with a sense of wonder, awe and peace. We have had many night events and it always seems to be cloudy so I don’t get to see them. I am sorry to hear you are having problems and pray that God will give you the strength to see them through. I am sure He has many good things planned for your life. If you have lost loved ones, as Job did, I can identify with that. But I thank God that He gave them to me to love and to love me. May God Bless you also and may He ease the pain in your heart and give you peace.

Please, thank you for your kind words; there is little in Job that has not been brought upon my old shoulders in the past five years and a few months. They are teaching lessons! I had to read Job in order to understand that. Like you, I am blessed to have had the time with my son, now departed, an Aunt that is dying and a grandson taken from me illegally. The latter one, God will resolve that in his own time and in his own way.
            Prayers and love to you for caring and sharing.

Or was he crucified because he was a false prophet or a blasphemer? Well papa what do you think? It lookes to me that it’s all about politics with you.

The word “Jew” does not appear until the book of Kings. House of Judea consists of those led by Benjamin and Levi. Bill is wrong is purveying what he thinks he knows about this tender subject; however, perhaps we could just do as what Jesus might do, look at his heart and the why of its writing.

If you do not have the ability to be accurate then you shouldn’t write about the subject. He is so far off base it isn’t funny and because of his following how many people is he going to lead astray?? Those who know Scripture must speak out against this FALSE teaching.

            You are right. The Mormons inaccurately translate Scriptures. They are not only polytheists but they falsely believe they will become gods. They believe that “as man is god once was, as god is man shall become”. This is total heretical teaching. Scripture is very clear that their were no gods before Him and their will be no gods after Him. They do not understand the concept of the trinity, they believe that the trinity are three separate gods instead of one God in three persons. It is sad to see that Satan has them by the throat. Most practicing Mormons I have known are really nice people, it saddens me that their beliefs will send them to hell.

            Yep, you are right on target; they have violated, “Thou Shalt Not Kill,” Smith killed two breaking out of prison for murder; Young killed innocent and helpless old women and men, babies and young females while the young men were out gathering food or at least trying to. The SLC temple stands where their graves are; he then cut the heads off some of the dead and had another Chief pick them up! They took young brides, as Islam does, invaded their young bodies, killed their own if they disagreed with their teachings, etc.They believe that Christ is the brother of Satan. They, indeed, are useful agents of Satan and how very helpful they are. The Book of Mormon has been changed and re-written 38 times as they make way for excuses to smoke, drink, etc. At one time they owned part in one of the major Cola companies and Safeway/Von’s/Albertsons. They also believe they will have their own mini planets that they will rule!

      It should not be a surprise that O’Reilly would produce a book like this. If a journalist from Tennessee can advance the great global warming myth, then a journalist from FOX can just as easily advance a goofy theological premise. Seriously, can any good thing come from a journalist?

  • Bruce Vain

    I’d say good column but I love Fox and like O’Reilly. This is really disappointing.

    Personally, I think that if O’Reilly wants to argue Jesus was a conservative, that’s his right…no sense letting the libs claim Him exclusively!

        Can’t do it, never will happen. The devout don’t separate the sacred from the secular! The question is which religion will affect, inspire and guide. Right now it’s secular humanism.

            Your comment is the anti-thesis of Separation of Church and State. Separation of Church and State is completely different than keeping religion out of politics. It’s elementary but I’m guessing that you are a public school educated libertarian. Try reading the founders for a change.

            Why do social conservatives oppose same-sex marriage and abortion? Because it says so in the bible. The Texas constitution defines marriage as between one man and one woman, which is in the BIBLE, and is unconstitutional because it goes against the separation of church and state. Same goes with abortion. The bible says life starts at conception, which is what conservatives believe. That’s why they are against abortion. They always put their religious beliefs into politics. Conservatives always talk about the constitution, even though they go against it. They believe creation should be taught in PUBLIC schools as genuine science. However, creationism is not a science. Therefor, it should not be taught as such. If conservatives want their Children to be taught about creation, then they should send them to private school. Evolution is science and should be taught in Biology classes. Leave religion out of politics and public schools. Not every Parent wants their Child to be educated about creationism.

            Conservatives actually believe our founding Fathers were Christians. This is not true. They were Deists. There’s a huge difference. If our founding Fathers wanted our country to be a religious one, then we wouldn’t have freedom of religion or the separation of church and state. Secularism is equality. It’s what makes our country so great. We aren’t Iraq.

            Jacobb, go sign up for Hillsdale College’s FREE class on the Constitution (101). There, you will find the truth about what the Constitution says about “separation of church and state” (nothing), who the Founding Fathers were, really (ALL but ONE were Christians, not Deists), and then research about the proof of the theory of Creationism, as compared to the proof of the theory of Evolution. Archaelogy, history, etc., PROVE that the theory of Creationism is truth, whereas, they have NEVER found the MISSING link to prove that the theory of Evolution is true. In fact, Charles Darwin himself admitted that the theory of Evolution is nothing but BUNK, before he died!

            The only thing the US Constitution says about the government and religion is that the state will NOT establish any ONE religion OVER another, and make it a STATE religion. This is because of the state religions of the various countries that the original settlers LEFT their countries to settle this beautiful country because of religious persecution. They were not free to worship as individuals, but were forced to convert to the state’s proscribed religion. Kinda of like Islam, ain’t it? Yet, that’s where this country is headed… it has nothing to do with Christianity… it has to do with the state not telling you what to do! That’s why this country was established as a REPUBLIC, so that it would NEVER become a NANNY state, but unfortunately, those in control conveniently indoctrinated folks like you to believe that we are in a DEMOCRACY, which is false.

            “those in control conveniently indoctrinated folks like you to believe that we are in a DEMOCRACY, which is false”–This is so true Rhonda and precisely why our esteemed “guest” will not go to the Hillsdale College website and check into the free class on the U.S. Constitution. You see, logic is a foreign concept to progressives. They are indoctrinated with absurd ideas such as “separation of church and state”, “global warming”, “fetal tissue” (referring to a child in its mother’s womb), “spread the wealth around” (referring to taking hard earned income from one group and handing it out to another), etc. They investigate nothing, hold no absolute truths and never think for themselves. That is why they target low information groups in their political campaigns. They would rather place Godless reprobates into office for their own selfish reasons even if it means destroying the futures of their children and grandchildren and everyone else around them. Unfortunately, when they wake up and realize that they are in the same sinking boat as everyone else, it will be too late.

            Someone has drank the Koolaid and a lot of it. The majority of the Founders were Christian, marriage has always been about one man, one woman, and evolution is theory, not fact. It will never be more than theory, because it can never be proven through scientific method. No living person was there to witness it because it supposedly took place millions of years ago. I would say evolution is faith based, because you have to take everything on faith that it is true. Therefore, evolution is a religion, plain and simple. If the “evidence” for evolution was a readily available as most evolutionists claim it would be touted from the rooftops and be front and center 24/7. Please, get a clue.

            THANK YOU! Your post should be copied and distributed to every “Secular Humanistic” group and be FORCED to read it! It’s killing our Nation and WE are paying for it! Literally! Our Government is adamant about keeping God out of every aspect of our lives, yet use Religion constantly as a Political Platform!
            Quoting parts of the Bible to justify their self-serving decisions! IE: Spreading the wealth from those who earn it to those who won’t! Then classifying it as a moral obligation! And who taught us to love one another, be compassionate, decent, honest, honorable, etc.? Christianity is the ONLY religion that is forbidden and abhorred in our Government! Except for the small parts THEY can use to their advantage! It is sickening how they USE religion but we can’t LIVE it without repercussions! Bill O’Reilly will lose a lot of followers over this! And he SHOULD!

            And by the way; O’Bama got the idea of spreading the wealth from Frank Marshall Davis and OTHER anti-American communists, Marxists, and the foreign/domestic factions, radicals, rebels, and others who depend on someone else to supply their needs while they preach compassion and sharing! IE: Our very own Leader, who has YET to supply documentation about who he really is, and what his true history is! Nobody seems to “remember” him anywhere! No school records or friends he had, no proof of college, being a brilliant, highly-educated scholar and a Constitutional Law Professor! When you make a claim like THAT, surely, you have the documents to back it up, and friends, fellow students, REAL Professors, etc., that “remember” you! Being photo-shopped into a graduating class picture is NOT proof! And “they” are good at it! IE: The photo of him being in the situation room the night of bin Laden raid? Inserted in the picture, sitting in a corner, in a little bitty chair, definitely NOT a position for our President! The winter jacket he has on clashed as well! With his inflated ego he’d never allowed Biden to sit in an executive chair while he sat in a corner! He was awol just like he was when Benghazi happened! Not acting like a Leader and terrifying for America’s future!!

            Evolution is not a science it is just some wacho’s theory that libs picked up and tried to force down everyone’s throat. There is no scientific proof for any of it. If it were true than Who told us to stop evolving? Or should we go stand by the sea shore and See who Charlie the Tuna evolves as? It’s as stupid and non scientific as the Big Bang theory! As if the entire universe was contained in the size of a pin head and then one day all by itself it went bang and the world was created with everything in it! Sorry it is a whole lot easier to believe in our Divine Creator as told in Genesis! Who put everything in that pin head? Who structured all life so that it can reproduce itself without help ? Why are all living things created so similarly?
            Cell division, reproduction, breathing, digestion, all were done by one Creator, we call God! Use whatever term you’d like there is only One Creator. Ps it’s not government

            How do we know that God didn’t use evolution to create the world? To him, one day could have been thousands of years. And who can believe that God didn’t create the world when so many things work perfectly together in this world – the tides, the sunlight being just right for life to exist, a newborn baby being created with the all of the necessary things in his/her body to sustain life. I could go on and on about how there had to be a higher power (God) to create such miraculous things.

            That’s not the point I’m trying to make. The point is, is that creationism is not science. It’s based on belief. Evolution is a science because it can actually be tested and observed. That’s why it’s a scientific theory. It’s a part of Biology and Biology should be taught in all public schools. If Parents don’t want their Children to be taught about evolution, then they should either send them to Catholic school or home school them. Religion should stay out of education, politics, business, etc. We are supposed to be a secular state. That’s why have freedom of religion and the separation of church and state and educating Children in public schools about creationism goes against the constitution.

            By the way, I’m not an Atheist. I believe in God, but I don’t associate myself with any organized religion. I think religion is all the work of Man. I also believe Conservatives are screwed. They are never going to win the young voters if they oppose same-sex marriage, Most voters between the ages of 18 to 25 support legalizing same-sex marriage. And don’t tell me I can’t be Libertarian because I’m not a Christian. I can be whatever I want to be. I don’t have to be affiliated with any religion in order to be a Libertarian.

            The concept of which you speak does NOT appear in the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States, or the Bill of Rights. It was in a simple letter, whose meaning has been forever misconstrued by those who (historically) wish to destroy our Constitutional Republic. Please note that the Founding Fathers abhorred the idea of a Democracy (“mob rule” or “one man, one vote”). Do your own research, you will be amazed, enlightened, and – at times – greatly saddened and disillusioned. These feelings stem partly from all the years of twisted propaganda in the public (and, to some sad extent, private) school systems in this country. May God have mercy on us all, for we are indeed of great guidance in these times.

            Yeah, and the reason is so the government cannot establish a state religion. That is the ONLY reason for separation of church and state. The Founders believed in God and crafted the COnstitution and Bill Of Rights based on this belief. WIthout God, none of it works because people need a moral compass only God can give to make it work the way it was intended.

        In this world, in this reality, in OUR lives…Islam WILL NOT tolerate that separation. So, IF we are to retain our Christianity, our culture, our English language, and our Constitutional Republic (such as it is…) – we MUST fight FIRE with FIRE! The two have been intertwined for centuries, we dare not blink at the threat we face and the destruction we will suffer IF we do not face this HORROR head on! God bless us all, for we will indeed need so much strength, so soon.

        If we would have followed God’s instructions “The God of Israel”, as described in the Bible, we would not be in this mess.
        And “Not One” , will escape unscathed without trusting Yeshua(Jesus)
        to save them.

        If every man is a liar, how can we believe anything written in any religious manuscript or book. God didn’t “write” the Bible. It was written by men. You know “those who lie”.

        • Larson

          Semper Fi, but that is an expression from the Reformation and a quote from St. Paul, you know, one of those guys who wrote the Bible. It speaks to priority and integrity, it is not in any ways similar to the expression “All Cretans are liars,” which you seem to be implying!

        • Phaenius

          Cute
          Retired – now that you are trying to be logical, how come you do not know how
          others introduce a logical thought?

          Paul was making a point that God is true even when folk do not believe, and
          giving a proposition that GOD is true, and there are those like Lucifer who
          cast doubt upon his word, then knowing the true nature of God, Paul crafts a
          boundary where ONLY men would be liars, and of course those that BELIEVE God
          and repeat his words are NOT liars, so YOUR proposition that all men are liars,
          which is but a boundary for a graph of men from liars to true can be forged, cannot
          even begin to be part of your paradigm that the Bible, being the testimony of
          men, is untrue. Consider the following but even check out the context in your
          own Bible to show how foolish your silly statement is.

          Romans 3:3-4(KJV)

          3For what if some did not believe? shall
          their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

          4God forbid: yea, let God be true, but
          every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy
          sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

          “Some
          did not believe” is somewhere near the graph boundary of “every man a liar.” This means that there will be men, more
          faithful to God, who are going to be telling the truth, especially those men
          that God gifted with the gifts of prophecy and that Holy Spirit enhanced memory
          of eyewitnesses of everything that Jesus said and did, which John mentions.

          John 14:26(KJV)

          26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father
          will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to
          your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

          • Retired Marine MSgt

            Oh! Thank you so very much for that diatribe. When I am feeling in need of spiritual guidance, I attend my Church and listen, and learn, from those who I KNOW are well schooled in my religion. I do not know you, nor which denomination you represent. Are you one of those who said “I won’t vote for Mr. Romney, because he’s just not “Christian” enough?” In other words, are you a religious bigot?

            Please don’t bother to respond with another “sermon”.
            Thank You.

          • Phaenius

            Yeah, I am a bigot, if that means there is something I consider more true than others. If I had my druthers I would have voted for Catholic and Black Alan Keyes (I am white and Baptist), in fact I actually did vote for him in the primary over my home town boy, Georgie W. Bush, and I voted for Romney in one of those “Better of two evils.” As for the truly evil Obama, I pray for his salvation according to Paul’s admonition to Timothy about praying for all in authority, again wishing Black and Catholic Keyes over half white and muslim Obama. The ideology of Obama in his socialism I hate, so I am a sociolophobe as well. I am hoping for you a long life, because there is hope in the absolute mercy of the only real Creator of this Universe that you might even be an object of that mercy, usually discovered when one takes that one real scientific experiment to trust only HIM for your existence and salvation (and not in your own works of so called righteousness). True Liberty of Conscience as practiced by our founders in the establishing of this country is actually a product of the Bible of my Baptist heritage brought to attention by a Leonard Busher, a Baptist in England in the very early sixteen hundreds when he pled for such and the first written plea for freedom of the press from King James in about 1614. It is late, sorry, no sermon.

        Father Don O’Reilly isn’t God,that simply means that the word of Yahweh carries far more weight than the words of any man,which has nothing to do with O’Reilly in the first place,the word of Yahweh was written under the inspiration of the spirit through the prophets and Apostles who had been found Faithful to do so,only those who have clean hands and a pure heart have the right to speak for Yahweh,that leaves out most priest,pastors and preachers and Christians that do not walk as Yeshua walked but do as they please and walk contrary to Yeshua’s example of perfect obedience to his father’s Commandments—-Jim Hunt

Sometimes at work when its a choice between CNN and Fox I just have to see which moron is on what channel but ya gotta get news. I truthfully get most of my news from sites like this and other email newsletters. I watch the Blaze a lot instead and listen to Alex Jones when Im driving. I gotta say though, ol Hannity seems to be getting the wool lifted from his eyes a little. He used to make me sick when he just fawned over anything with an R after its name. He doesnt do that nearly as much now. He actually argues with em sometimes now lol. I have read a couple of Oreillys books and they werent bad, but he has become so unwatchable, I havent viewed his show much at all for years. I really started seeing through him several years ago and this book pretty much cinches what I thought.

            That is an upfront and honest statement; Hannity, on radio is much better than he ever was on TV! He is fighting hard, right along with Lee, Cruz and others to defund the ACA; he said 16 had come on board with the few others to defund but we need a whole lot more to get this gone!

            You are so right. I view the people of this country like we did when I was growing up in the 50′s and 60′s. You see, we did not ever install railroad crossing guards until someone was killed. Then the powers that be would decide to place crossing guards. Someone had to die first. I don’t think anything has changed since then. Something or someone has to be soo bad before action is taken. Now we see that fully 70% of the people say the feds have too much power. Over 50% of the people do not want Obamacare. Only 30 some % support it.

HMMM. and they put that on the net with Americans/Latinos and Blacks marching with placards demanding “free.” Sickening is it not! Carl Tapp presented a piece regarding O Idiot being a Manchurian Candidate; he gives names and timing of Russian underground to take us down and going on for generations. I think, if you Google Carl Tapp and type in Manchurian Candidate you might be able to read, I hope so. It will give you food for thought and may well be needful to dig up the research to verify.

      I have been a watcher and been in agreement 90% of the time with the person of Mr. O in the past, but I am really sick and tired of his talking over people. He knows it all; just ask him! And if all of his people being interviewed are stupid, then why doesn’t he just have his own show, like Rush? Then there’s his “premium membership”, which I cannot afford, and am truly glad that I decided not to sacrifice my lunch and “join up” ! I think it’s really comical, how he’s sloooowly finding out who “Obama” really is, but he’s afraid to come out and announce it.

  • Stephen Hopkins

    O’Reilly read a letter from a viewer telling him his title “Killing Jesus” is wrong because Jesus is not dead. O’Reilly said, “if you want to read a book about religion then this book is not for you”. I stared at the TV for about 10 seconds to let that sink in and then turned it to a different channel. That told me all I need to know about this book.

    You pointed out that a man like O’Reilly, with his enormous platform, would be able to do a great service to Christianity by not only portraying the historical proof that Jesus did indeed exist, but to also detail the evidence of who he is as the Son of God; Something along the lines of Lee Strobel’s, The Case for Christ. Now to hear he
    portrays the crucifixion as a tax revolt makes O’Reilly an enormous disappointment.

I have found that after taking history courses and reading biographies about people like Polk, Madison, Lincoln and others, politics today is no more bitter and nastier than it was at the beginning of our nation. In fact, back then it may be considered worse due to the fact that we lost some good people due to duels with very inaccurate pistols.

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            100% right! In the 10 Commandments, we’re told NOT to have idols, and not to make images of things in Heaven. However, the Roman Catholic Church keeps an idol of Jesus Christ, an image that is in Heaven, nailed to a cross in every church of theirs. He died a physical death, and WENT to heaven… He is NO longer on the cross! If it was just a cross that was in their churches, then it wouldn’t be an issue, because the cross is representative enough.

          • far2right

            “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath” (Ex 20:4).

            If you are sporting a “cross” around your neck, get rid of it once for all.

            If you came to an empty altar, repent of it (Heb 13:10).

            God is Spirit … true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth (John 4:23-24).

            The elect of God have no need for physical religious relics and shun them.

            Such is idolatry.

Was raised Southern Baptist, by that I should be on here bashing all Catholics lol. Jesus is Gods Son. He was born of a virgin, He died on the cross for our sins. He rose again on the 3rd day and he will come back for us one day. The only way to Heaven is through faith, believing all of the above.

          I agree, medic2003… I was “sprinkled” as an infant into the Roman Catholic Church, and raised as a Catholic for the first 9 years of my life… first communion, catechism classes, and everything up to that point. Because there were 4 kids in my family (me being the youngest), we fought tooth and nail to NOT attend mass every Sunday, which my mother dragged us to. By the time I was 9, she finally relented and stopped taking us. It wasn’t until I was 42 that I finally accepted Jesus Christ’ gift by His death on the cross for my sins, and TRULY understood how important a relationship with Him is. I am a Christian, not a Catholic, now. All those years attending did not emphasize the importance of having a relationship with Him, only that He existed, and how important it was to follow the rites/rotes of the Catholic Church (and I could NEVER reconcile weekly confessions to a sinful man… priest… so hated that with a passion). I go direct to my High Priest with my confessions now, when I need to. I know that God chose me from before time began, and for that, I am truly grateful, because looking back over my life, I have realized that He was there looking over me and watching over me, protecting me for the time I would come back to Him.

    The Bible says the pharisees tried to trick Jesus when they asked about paying taxes… Jesus knew they attempting to trick him too… Matthew 22-15 through 22…He was not killed because of taxes… He was killed for the same blasphemy of Islam.. It was because He said he was Son of God…

  • Big Track

    It`s Doubtful if John kirkwood or Bill O’Reilly ether one knows the real Jesus.If they did they would know the real reason Jesus died.He was born to die for my and your sins,it had nothing to do with taxes.Bill O’Reilly gets rich writing this kind of book,they sell big because because he has a big name with a big show where he gets even richer and richer by siting a straddle of the fence.One day he`s for nObama and the Dems and the next day he is with the other side.One day omaba is great and the next day obama is lowew than a snake`s belly.He`s so wishey washy I can`t stand the man any more and as for as this preacher and his preaching that Jesus died for tax purposes,He needs to be De-ordained.

    O’Reilly’s ego has been overly inflated to the point that he is becoming obnoxious. He thinks he knows everything even more than experts. And, if someone points out he may be wrong, when he at times he is
    wrong,he acts like you are questioning God himself and how dare you!!O’Reilly claims bible theologians observe the life of Jesus only in a spiritual perspective which is false and he is overgeneralizes bible theologians.Yes, bible theologians observe the life of Jesus in a biblical and spiritual perspective which is true, but they also observe the life of Jesus historically. The historic part of Jesus is completely evident, and it’s right there in the bible written by the well known historian of the day, Josephus. My dad is a bible theologian ,and he knows the bible from cover to cover and he knows Revelation thoroughly. In addition, my dad knows both the historical and spiritual parts of Jesus life, what was the sociology like in the days of Jesus, and the history of Israel and Rome. My father went to Israel and learned to speak Hebrew fluently.Yet, he is open to hear what people say about the bible even though he may or may not agree with him or her. He is very humble who never takes any credit for anything because he says he is just a messenger for God. O’Reilly is mortal like the rest of us ,but with his inflated ego, he would like you to think he is immortal, which he seems to believe!!

  • Chris

    O’Reilly’s ego has been overly inflated to the point that he is becoming obnoxious. He thinks he knows everything even more than experts. And, if someone points out he may be wrong, when he at times he is
    wrong,he acts like you are questioning God himself and how dare you!!O’Reilly claims bible theologians observe the life of Jesus only in a spiritual perspective which is false and he is overgeneralizes bible theologians.Yes, bible theologians observe the life of Jesus in a biblical and spiritual perspective which is true, but they also observe the life of Jesus historically. The historic part of Jesus is completely evident, and it’s right there in the bible written by the well known historian of the day, Josephus. My dad is a bible theologian ,and he knows the bible from cover to cover and he knows Revelation thoroughly. In addition, my dad knows both the historical and spiritual parts of Jesus life, what was the sociology like in the days of Jesus, and the history of Israel and Rome. My father went to Israel and learned to speak Hebrew fluently.Yet, he is open to hear what people say about the bible even though he may or may not agree with him or her. He is very humble who never takes any credit for anything because he says he is just a messenger for God. O’Reilly is mortal like the rest of us ,but with his inflated ego, he would like you to think he is immortal, which he seems to believe!!

    O’Reilly made a statement to the effect that the Old Testament is mostly allegory. I knew at that point that his book was going to be largely fiction.

      TOO bad you left FOX, did you just decide to bury your head in the sand waiting for the leftists to shoot you in what is left sticking out? Or are you a leftist yourself? AS an American you need to pay close attention to what is happening to your Country right now and whistling blissfully through the park of life is not going to save this Nation.

        I agree, lowercaselettersonly, martinj7 must still have his head buried in the sand. If he/she only realized how many liberals have peed on that very sand … ah, well.

        Then watch the Blaze, listen to Beck and Alex Jones. Mike Church is another one. Judge Napolitano got canned because he was telling the truth. ROn Paul has a website that has news and commentary now. Read the many offerings on the Drudge report. Keep reading sites like this one and MANY others. Fox is just as bad as CNN. It truly is biased one way, CNN and the rest of em are biased the other way, with MSNBC being the queen mother of disgusting. Fox is in bed with the powers that be that want to control us with disinformation and propaganda. Im not saying ALL the people there are bad, but they DO have to toe the line or they go away. If they start telling too much truth they become special contributors, when they were anchoring their own VERY popular shows. Glenn Beck and Andrew Napolitano are some very good examples of this. If you want your eyes to be opened, check out some of what I mentioned. Fox is NOT fair and balanced.

    “I didn’t leave O’Reilly, O’Reilly left me”! I once enjoyed his banter, but now “grew up” and realize he is all about M-O-N-E-Y! The “Folks” be damned! This country and our Constitution be damned! It is a good thing he is a big man; that bigness is needed to support his bloated head! And did anyone else notice how quickly he abandoned and how often he deprecated Glenn Beck (who was the last best thing Fox had going for it!).

    • lowercaselettersonly

      Doesn’t it tick you off royally when he has Beck on and humiliates him while laughing at his own ‘jokes’ as doing so. Megyn Kelly said on one of her shows, “what if Glenn Beck is right?” Yes, what if? Miller has been backing ole O’Reilly down lately by disagreeing quite effectively with him, wonder when he will drop him or vice versa. Miller probably needs the money more than O’Reilly and may be willing to sell his soul to help Bill bloviate.

      • govogue

        Beck has all the facts and knows the truth. He should be heard!

        • barrysandinureyes

          Beck is a Mormon and does not know the truth. He does appear to know the truth about politics way better than O’Reilly.

          Both of them grew up Catholic, I believe. Beck became a Mormon because he doesn’t understand the truth of God. O’Reilly is a liberal Catholic because he doesn’t understand the truth of God.

          It is difficult to be Catholic and understand God’s truth because the R.C. Church has hidden it from it’s members for centuries.

          I believe that it is possible to be Catholic and know Jesus. Mormons do not know him, they think that he is Satan’s brother.

            This is true. I like Glenn Beck, but it bewilders me that he can be such a political skeptic, while being an unquestionable die-hard Mormon. I’ve read the Book of Mormon for myself, and it is the most ridiculous pile of nonsense I’ve ever seen (apart from the portions copied word-for-word out of the King James Version of the Holy Bible).

            My only conclusion regarding Beck is that his wife was a Mormon before he became one, and his best friend (Pat Gray) is also a Mormon, and he is torn between his common sense, and those who he is tied emotionally to.

          • Fred Wagner

            I don’t believe you read the Book of Mormon. Instead, you sifted through it hoping to find plagiarized examples. People usually find what they are seeking. The Book of Mormon is another Witness of Jesus Christ. It reflects some history of ancient peoples that existed on this, the American Continent.
            I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I wanted to know the nature of God. I was and am concerned about from where I came, what am I doing here, to where do I go after I die. There are probably others who have had and are having these concerns, including Glenn Beck. It’s always entertaining to have someone else tell me what I believe and why I believe it.
            Get in touch with some Mormon missionaries. Have some honest, peaceful discussions. To your education and enlightenment! Sincerely…

          • John Beam

            Believe what you want about me. I read The Book of Mormon, and I found many historical inconsistencies, such as cattle and horses populating the Americas–such as ancient Israelis with “steel swords,” when they did not have the technology to make steel. IF the Book of Mormon were “true,” then it would not contain these faulty references.

            Moreover, the nameless “brother of Jered” schools God (the creator of the universe) himself regarding the proper methods of barge-building, which is utterly ridiculous. After reading this in the “Book of Ether,” I did indeed stop at that point, so I suppose I did not read the ENTIRE book of Mormon, because it was insulting to my intelligence. I mean, MY GOD isn’t an incompetent boob who relies upon a mere man for guidance in the proper lighting of a sea barge. That was the last straw.

            You need for someone else to explain to you what you believe and why? I suppose you do this whenever someone says anything about these inconsistencies in your “scriptures” which cause you to doubt. You know something, sometimes skepticism is a good thing, because you can find the truth in being skeptical. The proof based upon anthropological and historical accounts show that the native Americans are NOT genealogically tied to anyone from the Middle East, and that’s just very tip of the iceberg with regard the real problems with The Book of Mormon.

            God was never a man like you, and you will never be a God yourself, ruling your own planet someday. There also aren’t countless planets who are being populated by countless gods through “spirit children” borne by these gods as products of sexual intercourse. These beliefs are an abomination, and strangely, aren’t even mentioned in the Book of Mormon.

            I do not think that Mormon missionaries would appreciate me very much, because I know far too much about your church, and I do not need any “education” from guys who are trying to pull the wool over my eyes. I am too much a student of history to accept the nonsense that a fraud like Joseph Smith is the end-all of God’s holy revelation to mankind. He was supposedly commanded to write the Book of Mormon, but then he comes up with all sorts of “doctrines” that aren’t even mentioned in the Book of Mormon. He adds to what “Christ” spoke in the Book of Mormon, which it condemns.

            I’m sorry what I’m saying and the way I’m saying it is offensive, but there is truth and there is fallacy. Mormonism even contradicts itself, let alone the Bible, and if you are serious about knowing what is true, you will seek it for yourself, and not go rushing to your elders to tell you what you believe and why you believe it.

          • Fred Wagner

            Thanks for the response, John. Wow, you are quite passionate and I feel that maybe my comments were offensive to you. That was not my intent, but I apologize for being hurtful.
            I don’t fear skepticism; I welcome it, usually. It’s alright to use skeptical ideas in establishing truth, but that’s not the only way.
            I’ve never relied on any male or female within the Church or without to lead me into or out of believing. I choose what and how to believe. I can and do make mistakes and sometimes I even know what I’m doing is wrong but I do it anyway. For these types of things there are consequences, and I have learned by experience how to overcome experiencing those negative consequences.
            I won’t address issues of doctrine here. I respect your opinions and hope that you’re a happy person. I’m sure at least one of us is in for a big surprise, someday. Good evening.

          • John Beam

            Yes, someday you will be in for a big, unfortunate surprise. You will learn, albeit too late, that Jesus was and is the Creator of the universe, and that His existence is eternal (from all past and to forever and ever), not the mere product of a sexual encounter between a god and his spiritual mistress. You will also learn that Jesus isn’t the spirit brother of Satan, as your religion teaches, and that your conception of Him is an abomination. Further, when you are judged by our Lord, you will be shown that you were given the truth of who He is, and that His salvation was offered to you for the propitiation of your sins, for His grace ALONE is sufficient for your salvation, but you chose to believe the false premise of a mere man who was the product of physical sex between your god, and that your salvation is given only when you follow the precepts of your religion, which states that your works are necessary, not the work of Christ alone, who is the only one worthy to save us.

            It does not have to end that way for you. You can accept Jesus as your Messiah and the only One who can save you, because you can do nothing to save yourself. You can acknowledge Him as God eternal, not just the issue of some sort of sexual encounter somewhere on the planet Kolob. But in order to do that, you have to reject the doctrines which teach the falsehoods of who Christ is, because he created you, and knew you from everlasting to everlasting. What I am saying is consistent with the holy scriptures in the Bible. The material you have chosen to believe isn’t. Your beliefs are 180-degrees opposite of God’s word.

            So, will you accept what God laid as His foundation and eternal truth, or will you reject that, and follow something that no other people believed until the 1830′s?

          • Fred Wagner

            Thank you for making my points. Here is someone telling me I believe in a god who is an incompetent boob, who has a mistress, with whom he practices sexual intercourse resulting in spirit children, two of which are Jesus Christ and Satan. Here’s what I believe: God the Father and his spouse brought about many spirit children. God hasn’t shared with me, yet, exactly how they accomplished that. Lucifer rebelled when his “plan” for God’s spirit children was rejected in favor of that offered by Christ. Lucifer and those who agreed with him were cast out of the presence of God. Christ offered himself as a ransom and overcame both physical and spiritual death. He was indeed the Creator of this world. Because of Christ, and Christ alone, both you and I will have our physical bodies and spirits be re-united, never to be separated. This is a given. What our standing is after that depends on the quality of life we live while on this earth, with “quality” reflecting greatly how we treat others, even those who disagree with us.
            Just a few more points – the brother of Jared, whose name I DO know, did not school the Lord. The Lord allowed him to exercise his faith and participate in the work. It was a teaching moment. You seem confused as to who was teaching whom. Joseph Smith was not commanded to write the Book of Mormon. He was allowed to translate from ancient words scribed on metal plates. Sure, you want to see and handle the plates, but they are not yet available. The Lord will provide them to us when He feels we are ready. The translation of the Book of Mormon was only one of many tasks the Lord asked Joseph Smith to do. The doctrines offered through him (Joseph) are not Joseph’s doctrines; they are Christ’s! This is what I believe, pure and simple.
            Obviously, one of the things you’ve forgotten or haven’t read in the Book of Mormon is the part that makes to you a request: That you ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ if these things are not true, and if asked with a sincere heart, having faith in Christ, He (God the Father) will make known the truth to you by the power of the Holy Ghost. For all the times I have read the Book of Mormon, this test has never failed to strengthen my resolve that these things are true. I know God and Christ live and want me to return to Their presence. I will never be above God and Christ in knowledge, power, and glory. He has promised you and I all that He has. He will force not one to accept it or any part of it.
            The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is patterned after the church that Christ established when He lived as a mortal on this earth. The Lord has always communicated with His children through His prophets, one of whom was Joseph Smith. The Lord now communicates with us through living prophets, today! I truly did find what I was seeking in the Book of Mormon, for it opened my eyes as to things of the spirit.
            If these things are abominable to you, Amen!

          • Fred Wagner

            You’re correct, ElderA… I should have said another Testament of Jesus Christ, which is on the book cover “we folks” read and study quite often. It’s actually written for “us folks!”

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            Well, I can verify that your “Testament of Jesus Christ” is nothing but fallacies. Jesus Himself warned in John 12: “44 Then Jesus cried out, “Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. 45 The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me. 46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.

            47 “If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. 48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day. 49 For I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me to say all that I have spoken. 50 I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say.”

            How is it, in the Mormon faith, they deny the Son in His rightful place, at the right hand of the Father? In the Mormon faith, Jesus is just another prophet, the brother of Lucifer, an angel (since Lucifer is a fallen angel but now the leader of demons and fallen angels). The Bible warns not to add or take away from The Word, or suffer the consequences.

          • Fred Wagner

            Well, Rhonda. I’m not sure from where these ideas come, but we absolutely recognize God the Father as the Supreme Being. Jesus Christ, by his own admission, came to do the will of His Father and give all glory to the Father.
            Jesus Christ was not just another prophet, He was and is the literal Son of God, temporally and spiritually. He alone, working under the direction of God the Father, accomplishes for us what we can’t even begin to understand or appreciate. He commands us to be like Him (Jesus) and likewise do the will of the Father, then we may inherit all that the Father has. That doesn’t mean the Father will be forced to give anything away or that anybody will steal from Him.
            I don’t believe the Bible is a cap on the well of knowledge. Interpret it how you wish, but even the Bible contains added scripture AFTER that statement was made. I have doubts about the correctness of the statement, but no doubts as to continuing revelations and scripture given to mankind by a loving, caring God. These are given for the benefit of all of His children.
            In spite of what others say Mormons believe, this is what I believe!

          • Fred Wagner

            Well, Rhonda. I’m not sure from where these ideas come, but we absolutely recognize God the Father as the Supreme Being. Jesus Christ, by his own admission, came to do the will of His Father and give all glory to the Father.

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            Well, I can verify that your “Testament of Jesus Christ” is nothing but fallacies. Jesus Himself warned in John 12: “44 Then Jesus cried out, “Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. 45 The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me. 46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.

            47 “If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. 48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day. 49 For I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me to say all that I have spoken. 50 I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say.”

            How is it, in the Mormon faith, they deny the Son in His rightful place, at the right hand of the Father? In the Mormon faith, Jesus is just another prophet, the brother of Lucifer, an angel (since Lucifer is a fallen angel but now the leader of demons and fallen angels). The Bible warns not to add or take away from The Word, or suffer the consequences.

            Oh man, that work “witness” is SO overused by “you folks” as to become a harbinger of stupid comment to come.

          • John Beam

            This is true. I like Glenn Beck, but it bewilders me that he can be such a political skeptic, while being an unquestionable die-hard Mormon. I’ve read the Book of Mormon for myself, and it is the most ridiculous pile of nonsense I’ve ever seen (apart from the portions copied word-for-word out of the King James Version of the Holy Bible).

            My only conclusion regarding Beck is that his wife was a Mormon before he became one, and his best friend (Pat Gray) is also a Mormon, and he is torn between his common sense, and those who he is tied emotionally to.

          • Rhonda Renee Sessions

            Beck became a Mormon, because he wanted to marry his wife! She’s a Mormon. Not because he doesn’t understand the truth of God! He understands it better than the average American, I can tell you that! The man was an alcoholic, and on the verge of suicide, losing it all, and he was saved by grace. Prior to meeting his wife, he had been raised a Christian (not Catholic), but didn’t walk with God as he should have. It wasn’t until he met his wife that he came to know the importance of having a relationship with God. You are sorely disillusioned about the truth of Glenn Beck’s conversion.

            And, BTW, I am NOT a Mormon, either, but I recognize true discipleship of Jesus Christ in someone, and Glenn has Him inside him, in the form of the Holy Spirit! However, Bill O’Reilly is the disillusioned “believer”. Bill O’Reilly is a Christian, in name only. He doesn’t believe in the teachings of the Lord.

        • barrysandinureyes

          Beck is a Mormon and does not know the truth. He does appear to know the truth about politics way better than O’Reilly.

          Both of them grew up Catholic, I believe. Beck became a Mormon because he doesn’t understand the truth of God. O’Reilly is a liberal Catholic because he doesn’t understand the truth of God.

          It is difficult to be Catholic and understand God’s truth because the R.C. Church has hidden it from it’s members for centuries.

          I believe that it is possible to be Catholic and know Jesus. Mormons do not know him, they think that he is Satan’s brother.

    “I didn’t leave O’Reilly, O’Reilly left me”! I once enjoyed his banter, but now “grew up” and realize he is all about M-O-N-E-Y! The “Folks” be damned! This country and our Constitution be damned! It is a good thing he is a big man; that bigness is needed to support his bloated head! And did anyone else notice how quickly he abandoned and how often he deprecated Glenn Beck (who was the last best thing Fox had going for it!).

  • PAGNOLINROME

    Neo Con and catholic in name only O’Reilly has never been the non spinster in the no spin zone, any more than Roger Ailes has been a proponent for “fair and balanced”. It’s no surprise that Mr. Fake O’Reilly causes more scandal to the church he used to belong to and the Faith he evidently never believed or understood. But it’s really distressing to see how many gullible souls eat up his drivel. If Fox’s Factor really has been #1 you have to wonder why and/or what polls are being used to determine that. I submit it’s long past the time when other sources besides Fox & O’Reilly for truth in the news are needed. Maybe the internet?

    And BTW O’Reilly has never retracted his “homophobe” accusation for a good man who opposed the homosexuality choice, years ago before Fox News and the Factor existed.

    • lowercaselettersonly

      I am a FOX fan and I can tell you that they at least give you both sides, you decide the rest. I will admit that O’Reilly whom I auto tune every night, sometimes two times because I didn’t want to miss it, has even put me to tuning him out. His arrogance since his divorce has me baffled, like he has something to prove to everyone. I suppressed the urge the other night to just write this to him, “if they weren’t being paid to do so, none of the people you have one would talk to you about anything, because they are always wrong in your eyes”. Why waste the energy he only prints letters he can defend or who kiss his feet. He never shuts up and let’s you here a complete sentence left or right, and uses “no spin” as the excuse for his boorish personality. BUT I still prefer Fox over any. I cannot take the liberal dialogue anymore, as I watch my country disintegrate around me. I fear we will not recover after another 3 years of liberal/leftistism (my own word).

      • PAGNOLINROME

        I understand and sympathize with your being a “Fox fan”. I was too. And I agree that Fox is better (on the surface) than the other liberal dialoging. However it’s clear that Fox is really about ratings, not being fair and balanced, especially with the recent shakeup, loss of Glen Beck, etc, as well as adding and promoting very liberal hosts and contributors, especially Meghan Kelly (good buddy of O’Reilly) who has also virtually left the Faith.

        With Ailes at the helm Fox is exposed and it can’t be long until it’s competing with NBC full bore.

        There are alternatives that DO tell the truth. As Pagnolinrome said, Glenn got booted because he told too much truth. The booted Napolitano from Fox Business for the same reason. If you want REAL news, I suggest either watching Beck on the Blaze or listening to his show. Napolitano shows up on there some as well as inteviews with Constitutional people in government like Rand, and Ron Paul, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz and more. Alex Jones can boast the same types of guests and tells the truth all day long. Mike Church is another good one. Mike is only on satellite radio, which is unfortunate because I used to listen to him a lot when I had Sirius. I listen to Glenn and Alex when I drive now to fill the void. Fox doesnt hold a candle to the truth these guys tell. Go read the Drudge Report. I guarantee you that you wont be watching much Fox news if you do that. About the only time I watch Fox is if I see Rand Paul or Ted Cruz or Mike Lee getting an interview.

          Oh Geese Louise, that is pushing it a bit. He, like most of the talking heads think it would be sullying themselves to speak of this conspiracy and besides they think there is nothing they can do about it and they are right. Until the main stream feet kissers see Obama as a phoney, wasting capital on this truth is not worth it to them. Believe me I don’t “just trust Bill”. I have seen his reports be anything but truthful on an incident that happened close to my home where I knew the facts. So no he is not perfect, and even Fox gets the facts wrong, that is why I wait at least three days before I pay attention to anything most of them say. It takes at least that long before the real facts are verified. BUT THEY DO GIVE BOTH SIDES, EVEN IF I HATE LISTENING TO IT.

    Let me totally disagree with your viewpoint. At all times, evil governments used the support of their evil courts to harm their opposition. It is happening today with the IRS, it probably happened in Jesus time for the same reason. Of course, he was a trouble maker for the Romans and especially the Jews. That is why they were likely to use this excuse to take him down. That he suffered horribly at the hands of the Romans was not because of God’s decree, (got this insight from good spiritual evangelists) but because of the cruelty of the Sanhedrin supporters. You might think that in this modern world, things would be less cruel. Well the future might demonstrate just the opposite when pandemonium starts to be the rule of this land. We”ll see.

If he isn’t impeached he still has over three years left to serve. Does anyone think this Country could survive that long? I don’t, Obama is an evil Man but, also a stupid Man.

    In my opinion, O’Reilly is a puffed up establishment commentator. Listening to him may not be wise. I would not purchase any of his books. What does this man know about the killing of Jesus. If you want to know about Jesus, read the Bible. It is all you need.

  • EllenBernal

    O’Reilly has a strange approach to the Christian Religion. He actually believes that the entire Bible talks in Metaphors and that includes G-d. He is an Irish Catholic and Catholics are not so well read on biblical Truth. Thanks for clarifying that the book is another sham to make money.

  • Rhonda Renee Sessions

    I stopped watching Bill O’Reilly a long, long time ago, when he started “bloviating” himself. The only time I do catch glimpses of him is when I’m channel-surfing, looking for something else to watch in his time-slot. Otherwise, I do watch Fox News Channel. However, I watch Fox News because I find them to be MORE reliable to watch and tell the middle of the road viewpoint more than the other alphabet news stations, which are outright FAR left communist-regime supporting, and isn’t even journalism anymore but state-run propaganda machines. But even Fox News I will watch with a grain of salt, and verify the facts, myself, by other sources, via the Internet, to check them against. Once they shut down the alternative news sources on the Internet, we’re screwed!

    But I agree with John Kirkwood, the writer of this article. Bill O’Reilly has really taken the fast elevator to the bottom with this book “Killing Jesus”. He has his facts totally screwed up… It wasn’t the Romans who truly “killed” Jesus, but the Pharisees and Sadducees… the elites of the Jews… because He was a threat to their control of the Jews. Sounds like the persecution of Christians in the world, today, doesn’t it? We are a threat to those that want to control.

    Bill O’Reilly is a has been. Once the conservative Christian base has caught on to him, his success will be gone. I use to watch him until I could see the wolf in sheep’s clothing. This man has two faces an neither is a good thing.

  • DrZarkov99

    I think what you’ll find when you read the book is that O’Reilly’s point is to explain why the Romans were involved as the instrument of Christ’s death at all. Pilate, as the resident Roman authority, tried to avoid executing a man he perceived as having committed no wrong, but it was the insistence by Jewish religious authority that his teachings were a threat to the empire’s authority that made Pilate accept the task.

    The Bible does not portray the Roman decision to crucify Christ as an act of enlightenment, but one of circumstance. O’Reilly’s question is about why a pagan believer would be driven to carry out divine will, without any such inspiration or awareness of prophecy. The reasoning behind the Roman act does not lessen the principle behind Christ’s death as inevitable atonement for our sins.

    I think the writer has let his passion override his theological intellect. O’Reilly, as a Catholic, has been instilled with the duty to challenge questions about faith, to strengthen his belief. Blind acceptance without question may be the path that others follow, but Bill is only following the teachings of his faith.

    • Father Don

      Bill is hardly following the teachings of his faith; about the death of Christ and Biblical marriage. You make a worthy apologist for an unworthy man!

  • EnemyoftheState

    O’Reilly is either dumb or mendacious – he is most assuredly a “plant” and is neither a Christian nor a patriot. I suspect he imbibed some modicum of Catholic Doctrine when he was younger but Jesus was not and is not a person of political interest ; He plainly showed the Gospel to be about relationships between persons and the Kingdom was not and never will be of this world. The State holds it’s authority as God allows it. Jesus was neither social worker nor was He a Zealot and political revolutionary. Surely God made His views on socialism clear at Babel and on homosexuality at Sodom. Christ made His views of earthly powers clear when He left a bewildered Pilate asking “what is truth?” because the world does not know Him.

    Regarding what I believe was last Wednesday night’s show, Mr. O had a lady from the Tea Party on his show. Bill couldn’t wait to get to the crux of his condescension for this woman for her belief that de-funding Obamacare was the right thing to do. O’Reilly, along with some bobble-head that was also on the program, ridiculed this woman unmercifully for her silly notion. I have seen O’Reilly go off the deep end before, but never have I seen him commit such an egregious act of condescension as I did that night. It appears we have found one of the mysterious “Republican blue-bloods” that Glen Beck has warned us about for years. And he’s been sitting inside our TV all this time. News for FOX News: Someone needs an attitude adjustment.

    I can summarize my feelings easily: Bill O’Reilly no longer stands for “the folks”, (if he ever did).

    Jesus Christ died for one reason and one reason only. He was the lamb of God sacrificed for the salvation of man kind according to God’s plan. If Bill says he believes in God but says Christ died for any other reason then he is a heretic. I used to like Bill but he has done the same thing that so many tv commentators do. After a while they start to believe their way of seeing things is the gospel truth and their arrogance takes over. I think we can say he is there. I don’t watch him anymore.

    I watch Bill O’Reilly. One night recently he spoke of his new book about Jesus–then he said that his death was about taxes. Instantly I knew that it was the politically correct version. Bill says he is a Roman Catholic and goes to Mass regularly. There are plenty of Catholics I am sure that would believe this to be true. I was tempted to buy a copy just to see how far off the diving board he went to make this politically correct. However, it is obvious that Bill does not have Jesus in his heart or he couldn’t have written a book about Jesus that didn’t mention God’s real reason for the sacrifice of his “only begotten Son”.

    I am glad that O’Reilly has finally, in all of his self-centered arrogance, exposed himself for what he truly is–a man without a clue–someone who perpetually wants to present a different set of “facts” than those established by time-honored experience and truth. I am still a fan of Fox News because they are what they say they are–fair and balanced. They present both sides–Hannity and O’Reilly, Baer and Smith, Ingraham and Rivera as well as many who are, unfortunately, squarely in the center of the issues. The other cable networks are totally one-sided (or left-sided, I should say). When O’Reilly feels he is in danger of loosing conservative viewership, he will invariably make some pandering statement on air in an attempt to bring us around, however, if one has observed him on a regular basis over time, it is obvious that he is willing to “spin” things in whichever direction is most beneficial to Bill O’Reilly. This is a great article which very succinctly describes the motives involved.

He neither knows God’s word, or he has chosen to distort it into a complete lie, in which case God will deal with him on that issue.

And what I have heard from FOX lately, it seems they are heading in the same direction. They appear to be running scared of Obama and his threats against them. And FOX AND FRIENDS needs to be listed is nothing but a comedy show because It sure as hell doesn’t do the news. I am disgusted with both…..

    When I first heard that O’Reilly was writing a book on Jesus, I knew it would be one book I’d NEVER read. This egotistical arrogant Bafoon has shown such a lack of true Biblical knowledge over the years, I figured this book is just being written to razzle dazzle us with his self deduced wit and brilliance- NOT! This is O’Reilly’s stab at self emmulation- much as Anthony Weiner and Geraldo Rivera use a phone camera, only O’Reilly achieves the same sense of importance through writing. Excellent article.

    O’Reilly is a shallow thinker and loud mouth. His opinions lack substance and he is very careful not to alienate Obamaites, even though they hate him. He doesn’t see Obama as an ideologue with a leftist agenda. He is careful to compliment sometimes so that he will get the next interview. He has brilliant guests and then interrupts so much I often wonder why he invited them. As far as Fox news, sometimes they play into the leftist dialogue. Look how many times Trayvon’s “innocent” middle school picture was flashed on the screen during the Zimmerman trial. Trayvon’s thug picture was never shown or I might have missed it. O’Reilly’s ego is beginning to wear on many viewers. I left him when he sided with the Global warming idiots. I could see then that his opinions lacked substance.

    Thank you for this report! Apparently O’Reilly’s arrogance is only exceeded by his ignorance.

He further said that if any secular book on Jesus would disturb you, then you shouldn’t read this book, either. I haven’t read the book, so I really can’t comment on it. Unless you have read it and find it factually inaccurate, you shouldn’t either. It’s a book on history – not religion.

    • Samwise

      There have been a lot of books on ‘history’ about this event. They must have all overlooked the evidence. Greek, Roman, Jewish and Christian history talk about this subject and not come to this conclusion. Maybe it’s you who should pick up a book before commenting. The author cited this, did you overlook it?

    Hello? Rome did in fact kill the Jewish, not Greek, born Savior “Yahshua,” meaning in Hebrew(i.e., the “only” chosen spiritual language of our CREATOR(Zeph. 3:9, Acts 26:14, 1 Cor. 4:6) that “Yahweh means salvation!” In fact read just what the CREATOR of “Jesus,” Petrus Galatinus had to say about just that…

    The real truth is that Jesus Christ laid down his life, or gave his life, for our redemption through His blood. He could have called down thousands of angels, but His love was so great that he gave his life for us. No greater love hath a man than to give his life for another. And yes, ORielly, Jesus laid down his life for you too!

    I have not been watching O’Reilly for a few months, because he seemed to be more interested in promoting himself than in listening to his guests. Have not bought the other “killing” books and will not be buying this one.
    Guess Bill has not realized where his destiny lies.

      Hmmm, self-promotion must be another parallel to his protégé, Glenn Beck whose radio show has degraded into almost 75% self-adultation and 25% pitches to buy whatever he’s selling today – 100% unlistenable bull hockey.

    Fox was my main news source until O’Reilly became a wacko. He thinks he is infailable and everyone else on Earth should heed his opinions. I still watch Fox but most often turn the channel when O’Reilly comes on. Anyone who thinks O’Reilly’s opinions count for anything are drinking his cool-aid.

  • Gill O’Teen

    Let’s see, o’really, who I quit watching years ago, is taking all the credit for a book another wrote? I wondered where Beck learned that trick, as he did the very same thing at least once – see the cover and hype for his ‘The Original Argument” {http://www.amazon.com/Original-Argument-Federalists-Constitution-Adapted/dp/1451650612} which was researched and written by Joshua Charles.
    {http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huxHwBMGFbs}

    But to be fair, unknown authors often ‘partner’ with a big name in order to sell more copies, and none of the talking heads in broadcast media, other than possibly Mark Levin, could last long without a well qualified research staff.

    I only watch Faux nowadays when I’m on the road as for all its flaws, it is still the best motel cable has to offer.

    Reza Aslan also wrote a book, supposedly about Jesus a while back, called “Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth.” He claimed that Jesus was crucified because he was a seditious trouble-maker, and claimed of himself to be a professor of religion. It turned out that he is an associate professor of CREATIVE WRITING, with a degree in FICTION.

    Here, we have a POLITICAL and SOCIAL COMMENTATOR who wants us to believe that he’s come up with the definitive answer to the question about why Christ was crucified. I find it very sad that Mr. O’Reilly has accepted his 40 pieces of silver in order to provide the corrupt media with more ammunition to attack the church of Christ, who is supposedly HIS “savior.” I’ve never been a fan of this guy, but I never thought that I’d see him sink this low.

    Tax revolt! Who’da thought it? You can’t write a book about the death of Jesus without dealing with His claim to deity. Nor can you write it without dealing with His claim that He was being sacrificed for our sin. Nor can you rightfully ignore his claim that he would rise again the third day. And let’s not forget the account of many eyewitnesses to His presence among his followers for forty days between His resurrection and ascension. I have, for a long time, thought that O’Reilly was on a slippery slope theoloogically! I stringly suspect he has never bothered to study the Bible, nor the tenets if his Catholic upbringing.

    God is a God of covenants!!! If you really want to know why “Jesus” had to die, you have to understand what really happened on Exodus 15 and also understand that ancient “covenant breaking” is penalized by death. Churchianity do not teach (because they can’t teach what they don’t know) the “Hebrew” understanding of scriptures as they are too busy pushing dogma and an overall “Fairy Tale” to make everyone comfortable in their sin, so they come back with your tithes next “Sun Day” for more!!! There is an “unconditional covenant” made by God with Abram and “Jesus” was the “pillar of fire” who walk between the pieces legally binding HIM to a covenant, HE knew, will cost HIM HIS life! “He who have ears, let him understand…”!!! Remember, it is HEBREW History, not a Hollywood or Disney fairy tale!!!

    Excellent article Mr. Kirkwood and I have nothing but the utmost admiration for your “About The Author” description. I have long suspected Bill O’Reilly to be a sheep in wolf’s clothing and no longer watch his show except when Laura Ingraham guest hosts. I do caution against the trend now appearing to gain traction against the baby Fox along with the bathwater of O’Reilly, Old Shep, Dennis Kucinich and a few other RINOs.

    Winston Churchill made popular the saying “democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others” so too Fox is the worst cable news station except for all the others. It is the only horse we have in that race and so I endure their alienated antics, backsliding hosts and RINO guests. By and large I distill the product of their profession with a jewelers eye taking what is good, decent and true and rejecting what is not.

    Who in their RIGHT mind still listens to O’Reilly?

    We DON’T!

    O’Reilly is Catholic ….he doesn’t know Christ ….

    Crucifying Christ by the Jews was because they wanted to be out from under Roman oppression. They could not comprehend that Christ is the ultimate sacrifice for their SINS since they were unable to be righteous. In the OLD TESTAMENT the role of Christ is described but Jews REJECTED Him as also foretold that many Jews WOULD reject Him.

    No, Christ didn’t die for LOWER TAXES, Bill. Must you advertise your IGNORANCE?
    Christ is also NOT dead. He rose again and sits at the right hand of God, MY FATHER. Bill, I don’t know WHO your spiritual father is but MINE is GOD. Ooops, your “spiritual” fatherS are your Priests and this LIBERAL Pope Francis who clearly demonstrates that he is NOT infallible. Honestly, coming from Argentina where gays have practiced being “gay” in the open since the late 1800′s and the general LOW DOWN culture in Argentina is not going to being about a GOD fearing conservative leader.

    On that note, O’Reilly will probably LIKE this Pope since like him, Bill doesn’t believe that “gays” can repent and “sin no more”. O/Reilly refuses to believe that CHRIST heals them. No we find NOTHING inspiring or useful about Bill O/Reilly.

    And don’t forget, Pilot said to the Jews that he could find “no fault” with this man, and wanted to release him, but instead he fell prey to the “will of the people” who shouted, “crucify him, crucify him!”. Rome was a “government by the people” and it’s the image by which the ‘republic’ of America was also founded – the image of the beast of Rome.

    Now if Jesus was leading a tax revolt, why would Pilot say he found no fault with the man? Jesus neither led a tax revolt or any kind of insurrection that Mr. Bill thinks. It was the JEWS that demanded Jesus’ death, but as the author of this blog pointed out, it was the will of God to show his true nature of FORGIVENESS. O’Reilly is ignorant of BASIC bible knowledge, and no wonder, the ‘god of this world’ has blinded him.

        Yeah I did see that dang segment! And lots more (most every night). And thot Bill was being his arrogant, silly, semi-religious/secular self. Like when he said Biblical miracles are mostly mythical. OhReally? OK, Bill is an intellectual christian (if there is such) & he writes his history books as a secular, supposedly objective, investigative news reporter. I get that. But I agree with this article: How can he write a Jesus account, & even use scripture as his prime source, when he’s never gone there?! (I was hoping it’d be killed before it got born.)

        But hey, I don’t trust my conservative (or centrist) newscasters to be perfect, & certainly not for their theological or spiritual wisdom! But this I do: I value & “get” this BO (& such newsfolk) way more than the other BO (& his comrades)! And so I glean my news from them.

        My point? I’d read the dang thing before I’d rip it, for Christ’s sake! (I mean that in the best way). I listened to the 1st chap. & it was all that I expected. I’ll read it someday– b/c I might learn something new & to better understand such people & to get a newsman’s take on the most important event in human history.

        My take? No, I’m not an investigative reporter collecting data on some cold case. No, I’m not an eye-witness who was there. But I am a “heart witness” who’s met the One whom this case is about. I have the same spirit as the ones who were there. So I’ve “been there”… when He was murdered (not for taxes)… for my crimes… and for all the world. And later raised from death, so He can give His Spirit to me & we can talk. Praying that Bill & others will someday go there too.

    I find that O’Reilly would say some of stupidest stuff to sell or get more money. The same is true with many pastors and churches today teaching you are free to live in sin and do everything you wish after your salvation, because they teach all your future sins are already forgiven. There’s much stupidity in our churches and people speaking about the word of God today, because the world has fallen away from God like Christ said would happen before the coming of the antichrist. Many churches and people that speak of God just don’t care anymore as more and more believers rape and kill people.

    When “O’Really?” wrote Pinheads and Patriots, he was asked on national TV how he would classify Obama, i.e., as a pinhead or a patriot.

If he can’t tell the difference between a communist and a Constitutionalist, I’m certainly not going to listen to him on theological matters.

          OK great, you put on that your this aged sage who has examined all the evidence and the main string on your sitar is that Jesus Christ never lived. Only a complete moron would utter that dribble dHb; there are no atheist scholars who make that claim. It is universally understood that Jesus Christ lived and died – the controversy is not over whether or not he lived and died but how he did. Dawkins, Hitchens, none of them would make such an absurd claim. But have at it. Now I know that you’re a bitter old man who wants to erase someone that’s written in ink. Good luck with that, Lady MacBeth.

          • dHb

            First of all Sam I am not an atheist I am a Deist. Dawkins, Hitchens and most other atheists concentrate their efforts on trying to prove there is no God, not about some illiterate wandering about in the desert 2000 years ago claiming he was that god in human flesh.

            I am not an atheist H72. Did I say anything about not believing in God? No, I stated that I believe Jesus is a myth created by superstitious people as a result of greatly exaggerated hearsay information. The Israel area was teeming at the time with all sorts of beliefs in one god or another and there were MANY walking around claiming to be the son of a god or some type of messiah.You do realize nothing was written about him by anyone that was an eye witness to him but all the Gospels were written almost 200 years after he is purported to have lived. I won’t even get into the madman Paul’s delusions. The meticulous Jewish and Roman historians of that day recorded no mention of him. Christian apologists often refer to one little script written by Flavius Josephus in his Antiquities of the Jews, often referred to as the Testimonium Flavianum, but the vast majority of scholars who have studied it have declared that Josephus did not write it and that it was inserted into the document years later.

            I am a Deist. I believe in ONE God who designed and created everything and who can be seen and understood by anyone by studying what he has made and from the unchangeable laws of nature he has set in place. That is all. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Bill
    O’Reilly should be credited for the many years he dedicated to defending
    conservative view points, upholding the true intent of the Constitution, and
    the enormous emphasis he continues to put on the necessity of a strong family
    unit.

    But I have to agree with some of the
    comments I have read on this issue; not only with Mr. O’Reilly’s new found obsession
    with his famed books, but rather for the manner by which he presents his daily
    notifications, explaining how well he’s doing financially: without taking into
    consideration that a good part of his audience are financially struggling.

    Unfortunately, Mr. O’Reilly’s new book
    “Killing Jesus,” suggest his death was attributed to a tax rebellion. If he had
    read Matthew 22:17-21 he may have been able to portray a more favorable
    Christian posture of Jesus. Attributing his death to taxes is a far reach i.e. In
    Matt. 22:17-20, The Pharisees asked Jesus if it was lawful to pay Caesar taxes.
    Jesus then asked to see the tax money. They handed him a denarius. Jesus then
    asked “whose image and inscription is this?” They responded “Caesar’s.” Jesus
    than said, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God
    the things that are God’s. Unfortunately, when
    questioned by a viewer, Mr. O’Reilly claimed the books content was not
    religiously based and referred the viewer to the Bible if he was seeking a
    religious based response, (WOW) but, in fact, taking away Jesus’s deity in any
    form or for any purpose is blasphemy. There are more than 300 prophecies in the
    Old Testament foretelling the first coming of Jesus, including definitive
    reasons for his coming. (The book will lead weak believer right off the road of
    redemption.)

    There are
    many who make positive contributions to the benefit of mankind, but sometimes, an
    abundance of success combined with financial gain has blinded many a traveler.

    Can a man
    like Mr. O’Reilly humble himself enough to see why Bible Christians are totally
    dissatisfied with his new release of, “Killing Jesus?”

    I learned a
    long time ago, that we really never own anything in life, we just borrow it:
    the very second we die, someone else owns it.

    There is
    only one road that leads to haven; and that road was carefully laid out by the
    man who died on the cross, that others may live.

    Word from Jesus:”Either you are for ME or you are against ME”
    JESUS came to earth for everyone.
    If you confess ME with your mouth, and believe GOD raised ME from the dead, you will be saved.
    Salvation is so simple.
    Confess your sins unto ME. I am faithful and just to forgive you all of your sins, and cleanse you from all unrighteousness, Note the use of all, all means all.
    It is a blessing to have all of your sins forgiven, you are blessed when all your sins are remembered no more.

    I AM the way the truth and the light of the world, no one comes to the FATHER through ME.

    “Confess with your mouth that JESUS is LORD, and believe in your heart that GOD raised ME from the dead, and you will be saved”.

    I and the FATHER are one.
    When you see ME you also have seen the FATHER.

    Remember this comment?
    “There are many ways to god”.
    Deception, bold face lie.
    Just the beginning of all deception bold faced lies.
    There was one true statement though: “Do not believe everything you hear”.

  • ZZMike

    For once, O’Reilly is flat-out wrong. It had nothing at all to do with taxes. The real reasons are too well-known – to anyone with an ounce of Biblical knowledge – to go into here. There are both theological reasons – which you and Mr Bashir have pointed out, and political reasons – the Jews – more precisely, the Sanhedrin – did not believe that Jesus was the Messiah – the Son of God – and hence blasphemous. Since they lacked to authority to put anyone to death, they appealed to Pilate.

    Only fools speak of things they don’t know about.

  • Hawkeye72

    A little over a month ago O’Reilly called Christians who are against legalizing homosexual marriage, “Bible thumpers”. He also had to settle a sexual harrassment law suit from a young lady that he constantly made obscene phone calls to. The following was reported by the AP on February 13th 2009.

    “Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly has been slapped with a sexual harassment lawsuit by a female employee who claims the conservative talk-show host repeatedly subjected her to sexual harassment through dinner and phone conversations variously described as lewd, lascivious, vile and threatening.

    I’m a conservative and I can’t stomach this clown.

    I could understand it if his argument was that the political situation was volatile and Pilate and the Romans may have felt a bit vulnerable because of the fervor of the zealots during a major feast, but to put it the way he did made it sound like the Romans sought him out to crush a tax revolt. This would be true, as the author implied, if he were doing a book entitled KILLING SIMON BAR KOKHBA; but it’s mere blasphemy and shoddy scholarship to imply it of Jesus Christ.
    I believe that when people come out with books like this they have to “sensationalize” some aspect of it to get attention and to build interest. It appears from the comments here, that philosophy was ill advised.

    Maybe I missed something here, but it was MY impression, from what I’ve read and studied of the Bible, that the death of Jesus was planned among the Triune Godhead BEFORE there was even Adam and Eve, let alone taxes. It certainly showed up very early in the game as a promise to us {Gen 3:15} is the first appearance and from then forward through the OT the promises are made and fleshed out for our understanding. So, I’m having a bit of trouble getting how that equates with Him dying for a tax issue, revolt or otherwise. Sounded more like a SIN issue to me; ours and the need of a suitable “sacrificial lamb” to wash it away….but that “Lamb” had to be PERFECT, which we human sorts seem to always fall short on; So God Himself took on our flesh and provided His own self to be that “Lamb” for us, so that we, our sins could be washed out of God’s sight by the shed blood, when we come to Him for salvation, following HIS instructions, rather than our own ideas on how it should be done. However, being as I’m not the Bible scholar that Reilly is, maybe I got it wrong?

    O’Reilly read a letter from a viewer telling him his title “Killing Jesus” is wrong because Jesus is not dead. O’Reilly said, “if you want to read a book about religion then this book is not for you”. I stared at the TV for about 10 seconds to let that sink in and then turned it to a different channel. That told me all I need to know about this book.

    You pointed out that a man like O’Reilly, with his enormous platform, would be able to do a great service to Christianity by not only portraying the historical proof that Jesus did indeed exist, but to also detail the evidence of who he is as the Son of God; Something along the lines of Lee Strobel’s, The Case for Christ.

    To hear O’Reilly is portraying the crucifixion as a tax revolt makes O’Reilly an enormous disappointment. I have no need to ever watch his show again.

        Martin Bashir is correct in citing Isaiah 53:5, for these are the terms of the New Covenant cut in His body.

    No Kirkwood has not read the book yet, but he felt OK writing this long trashing opinion piece. Not a good Christian witness!

    Try this hypothesis: the Jews were expecting a political Messiah who save them from the Romans, their oppression and their taxes. The Jews greeted Jesus on Palm Sunday with that expectation and excitement. Then it became clear He was not the kind of Messiah they wanted, and their leaders were too self-important to realize the prediction for a spiritual Messiah who would be sacrificed for all our sins. Pilate did not want to kill Jesus, but did so to placate the Jews. Pilate offered them a choice between killing Jesus or Barababas; the Jews chose to spare Barabbas who we learn in Matthew 18:40 had led a rebellion. So the Jews saved the guy they thought would more likely help them against the Romans, and in a way, killed Jesus over taxes.

      I’m pretty sure the Jews hated Barabbas and weren’t looking for his help. The texts also indicate that the last thing that “the Jews” wanted was a rebellion, hence the statement about “one man” dying in lieu of the whole nation.

    I’m not sure how he’s framing his claim that Christ died because of taxes…and I’m NOT going to buy the book to find out. I stopped watching b0′R after his interview with bh0. He must’ve drank the kool-aid while he was waiting for his highness; the king of food stamps & poverty. I’ve never felt compelled to read any written by either of those two, “zeroes.”

    Personally, I’ve always thought that whole, “render unto Caesar,” comment…actually meant, PAY YOUR TAXES. (and I ~have~ read THAT book)

    O’Reilly has all but admitted he doesn’t believe in the Bible, and doesn’t believe Jesus is the Messiah. He puts Jesus in the same category he puts Bono in. . . A good man who tried to help people.

    Bill it was for Our transactions that Yeshua Messiah died so we Whom believe in Him and the Father could have everlasting Life. Taxes were not the reason Bill Our sins were Yeshua Was God in the Flesh, Fully God and Fully Man not just a good guy. Romans killed him because the Jews were under Roman control and they could not Kill him. Bill how will you explain this to Yeshua that he was only a man? God came to save those who are lost and you are very lost if you do not believe in what He did on the cross and rose again on the third Day.

    Sadly, Bill O appears, by what he says, is among the multitudes who are lost – having a “form of religion”, knowing something about Our Father, but not knowing Him in their heart. Jesus died for our sins. If Bill knew the Lord, he would know that. We each get to choose: accept God or reject God. A parents choice to have one “sprinkled” is not our choice. Have you made a choice? I speak from experiance – I was a sometime church goer, knew something about God, but I did not know Him. Then someone told me about Jesus. I made a decision to accept, Jesus and became a pressing on, follower of Jesus. Changed my life forever! Jesus died for my sins. I rather follow the light of CHrist.

    Since the book hasn’t been released yet, I think that judgment should be withheld until then. There IS evidence outside of Scripture that suggests a broader understanding of the political issues that surround this time period. It was not the intent of the Evangelists to address in detail the political issues of the time period.
    When looking at material, other than the Holy Scriptures, one will note that the “climate” of unrest in the Province was strongly anti-Roman and that taxes were heavy. One of the reasons for an additional tax levy was to pay for the aqueduct that brought water from the Bethlehem valley up to Jerusalem into the cisterns within the Temple. Originally this aqueduct was to be paid for with Temple monies, but when some of the leaders, that had not been consulted, became aware of this agreement, threats were made that would be highly unfavorable to those who had been involved in the original agreement with Pilate. Funding was withdrawn, after the fact, and Pilate was left “holding the bag”. He had a revenue quota to meet and the only way to achieve that goal was to meet that quota was to levy an additional tax. People were not pleased.
    The Temple leadership did not want it made public that they had made a “deal” with Pilate to pay for the aqueduct. A “Tax revolt” would have serious consequences…but the “fallout” would rest very heavy on the shoulders of the Temple leadership…Namely Caiaphas and those in the “inner circle” of the Chief priests.
    This is NOT information that is clearly presented in Scripture and is of historical value only. Thus many people are not aware of the details.
    The decision to hand Jesus over to Pilate on the “trumped” up charge of treason was predicated on a fine point of Jewish Law. Namely that when a court condemned a person to death by an unanimous vote, the sentence could not be carried out for a period of 24 hours. The reason was based on the concern that a unanimous vote may be one of passion and impulsive. The members of the court were to “sleep on it” and then reconvene the next day to REVOTE. A single dissenting vote, would nullify the death sentence and a lesser punishment would be assigned. Think about the timing here. The next day was the Sabbath and the court would not be convening, in fact it was the beginning of the Passover observance that lasted eight days. People from near and far were gathered in Jerusalem for this observance. Can you even begin to imagine what would happen, when the word got around, especially to pilgrims from Galilee, that Jesus had been condemned to death? Do you really think that the Chief priests would sit around wait for a revote that could nullify a death sentence? So they turned Him over to Pilate and said that they did not have the right to execute anyone…they didn’t add “TODAY”.
    Scriptures are written to enhance our knowledge of God and the relationship between God and us His children. They are the “sacred manual” by which we are to live our life. The Gospels teaches us about the Supreme Sacrifice of Jesus’ death for the Redemption of all of humankind and the Promise of Salvation through the Resurrection. The Gospels only hints of the political issues of the day…both religious politics and government politics. Something to consider, any reference to the Essene community in Qumran is not mentioned. The closest reference is John the Baptist. Yet, we now know that not only did the Essenes exist in Qumran but that they may also had influence in Galilee as well. It was the Essene’s that held fast to the coming of the Messiah, they were looking for not one, but two Messiahs. One thing for sure, NO ONE was expecting the Incarnate SON OF GOD.

      Tell me, are Anna and Simeon “no one?” And wasn’t that the reason for John the Baptizer … to make the way straight for his coming? Did not the scribes tell Herod where he was to be born? Did not the magi travel to see him? I think your statement about “no one” is a bit thin.

        They were expecting the Messiah. Each one of them had the hope that He was the “fulfillment” of prophecy. The Messiah was the “anointed of God”. That is a far different meaning than the Incarnate Son of God. God made flesh, was not acceptable to them. It was blasphemous.
        So, NO…they were expecting a Messiah and received so much more.
        And yes, the Heavens opened and a Dove descended upon Him and a voice from the Heavens said, “this is My Son, in Whom I am well pleased.” But did John truly understand? Even the Apostles did not understand completely, until His Resurrection.
        I hope that Bill will be presenting a through HISTORICAL account of the political, cultural and Jewish religious prospective that contributed to the Crucifixion. IF, he attempts to rewrite Holy Scripture and thus be in error of changing the Revelation contained therein…I would then be thoroughly “ticked” and would be the first to say so.

Not until the 6th century when someone made up Allah and Islam Mohammed knew only what he had heard and try mixing Judaism and Christianity together so they would submit to Islam. Facts Bill your wrong The account of his dead is recorded by people that were there did you read Josephus Matthew John for John was there seen and heard it all your Facts sir are wrong. Remember Pilot was confused saying he died already Christ did say for all to hear Father it is finished!
