CNN host Don Lemon was discussing the statues controversy this week when he made this statement: “Jesus Christ—if you believe in, if that’s who you believe in, Jesus Christ—admittedly was not perfect when he was here on this earth. So why are we deifying the founders of this country?”
If Lemon is right, Jesus cannot be the divine Son of God. He cannot be our Savior, for his death would have paid for his sins rather than ours (2 Corinthians 5:21).
Of course, the Bible teaches that Jesus “committed no sin” (1 Peter 2:22) and is “holy and blameless, unstained by sin” (Hebrews 7:26 NLT). As “a lamb without blemish or spot” (1 Peter 1:19), he was tempted in every way we are, “yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15).
But if Lemon is right, the Bible is wrong.
Why would Don Lemon, who grew up Baptist and attended a Catholic school, make such a heretical statement?
In an article titled, “My Faith: How I learned to stop ‘praying away the gay,’” Lemon wrote that he began struggling with same-sex attraction as a boy. He claims that at his Baptist church, “preachers taught that liking someone of the same sex was a direct and swift path to hell.” He prayed for God to change him until he started attending college in New York.
He writes: “That’s when common sense began to take hold and I realized that no amount of prayer would change me into something that wasn’t natural to me.” He decided that “the Bible was about the lessons you learned, not about the events or words.”
In his evolving view, believing that “religious teachings happened word for word as they were written in Scripture” is “naïve, even dangerous.” He points to “Christian doctrines that supported slavery, segregation, and the subjugation…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
