I’ve been a fan of your show for some time but I have to have my say on the unchristian comment you made yesterday about Tino Wallenda crossing the Niagra Falls.
You said, “he is tethered why do I want to watch something that wont end it in a crash or something?” Pause and let that sink in for a moment..I heard a spiritual silence to your words all over your listening audience. Check the status of your heart brother, your motivations and where your walk today is. Whom do you serve? your words? are they edifying to Jesus and his servants? or to your own ego and self gratification?
First you are missing the point. The point is that he had Huge worldwide coverage and the first thing he did is give thanks to Jesus, focus on Him, then the second thing he did was give thanks to Jesus EVERY STEP of the way across the Falls. ‘Thank you Jesus’ …. “I give you thanks Jesus”.. “Thank you Jesus, my righteous king,” Wallenda said this as the mist from the falls rose up around him. You see he focused on the Lord Jesus Christ, worshiping him with everything he his and everything he does, with his words with his actions.
And for the record, Tino’s grandfather was killed falling off a high wire stunt in Puerto Rico and yet Tino Wallenda DID NOT want to be tethered for this stunt. ABC who sponsored the 1.3 million for this and was televising it said it was the only way they would allow the airing of this historic walk. Tino Wallenda is a hero in the faith, completely sold out for Jesus and will be part of the cloud of witnesses that you read about in your bible.
You need to apologize on air and then repent to the Lord Jesus for failing to give Him his righteous glory through his servant Tino Wallenda.
Peace and Blessings
I am sorry that hit you wrong. Most people could tell I was joking around. I disagree that there was a spiritual silence over the audience. When I truly say something off base I get a ton of emails from people. For me that is usually a good barometer that I have messed up. So the good news here is, yours is the only email I got regarding this so maybe the majority of people took it in the spirit in which is was meant with and that is humor.
I can tell you are a devout believer and you want to make sure people are not lead astray. That is my aim too, so in this case I think we can both breathe a sigh of relief as it appears not to have caused anyone to stumble.
