Ladies and gentlemen, something very sad happened over this past weekend, something of such importance that I have interrupted "The Chronological order of the life of Our Christ "series to discuss it. What was possibly the last of the honest radio men, a man who spoke the truth regardless of the outcome, fell to the temptation of liberal approval.
Folks, words have meanings And meanings have words attached to them. When a man calls a spade a spade, as long as what he is calling a spade, is in fact a spade, a "A sturdy digging tool having a thick handle and a heavy, flat blade that can be pressed into the ground with the foot". He has told the truth. When a man calls a pot, a pot, as long as what he is calling a pot, is in fact a pot, "A round, fairly deep cooking vessel with a handle and often a lid." he is being truthful and has no need to question himself. And likewise when a man calls a woman a slut, if in fact that woman is a slut, "a woman of loose or no moral character, who while acting like a whore is not charging for her services." Than that man has nothing to apologize for. For he has done nothing more than state fact.
For no pot, should take offence at being labeled a pot, no spade should be offended at being called a spade and likewise when a woman has chosen the path of sluthood, there is no reason for her to be offended by being called her what she is and there is no reason on earth, other than the desire to be approved of by those who twist the meanings of words, for he who stated the truth to apologize.
Over this past weekend, a man whom I had great respect for, diminished that respect by an incalculable amount. Rush Limbaugh, a man with 20 million plus supporters, a man who very easily could have been drafted in the upcoming Republican convention, a man known for calling it the way it is, a man, up until now has shown himself to be unafraid of the main stream media, the congress, the courts, and the corrupters of language, bowed down to the altar of political correctness and begged a slut to forgive him for calling her a slut.
While I never looked to Rush for Scripture, nor have I ever stopped nor will I now stop praying for his salvation, I have always looked at Rush as a man who made sense out of the confusion of politics, a man who I could reliably listen to, to get an honest opinion based upon the fact that words have meanings. I could do this because I honestly felt that he put honesty ahead of political correctness and the pressure of wanting to be liked by those dedicated to the destruction of this country. I looked forward to the day when Rush would publicly state "well folks maybe we have reached the point where a state or two should secede..."
But, after his weak kneed apology, his capitulation to the altar and god of political correctness, while I doubt that his audience will diminish and I feel sure his advertisers will either return of be replaced, his effectiveness and influence has diminished to the point where his leadership is more than questioned, it is now non existent to those who count. Oh sure, I like many of you have switched from Pro-Flowers, but that is no big thing. I wish Rush no financial harm, I wish him no ill will, I mourn the passing of what I considered the last public speaking hope of freedom and honesty. Will he next apologize to Senator Reid? Will he now bow down to Obama making a generous donation to his reelection coffers in exchange for a night in the Lincoln bedroom, as he did with George Bush the first? You see, while most had forgiven his capitulation from the truth with George Bush the first, we had not forgotten.
I and many others had forgiven Rush for trading his word for the chance to have his picture taken with Bush, we have not forgotten, and this bowing down to the office of the democrat a second time, is the showing of a trend. A trend to put other things ahead of telling the truth and standing up for it and behind it.
Two scripture references come to mind, first "Forgive"
Jesus makes it very clear that we are to forgive. He strongly states, as was recorded by His faithful Apostle Matthew: " For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." Yes, we are to forgive Rush, but that does not mean we are to forget or that we are to continue to give him the same respect and trust as we did before his shameful behavior. There have been many who have generously promised support for this ministry, but when it came down to writing a check, that check never materialized. Do I call and ask where it is? No. But likewise, do I take you seriously when you claim you will send another? Again, no. For while I forgive you I do not trust your word, and that lack of trust extends beyond the simple matter of money, it extends to the point that unless I am sure that what you are telling me is the truth, I check it before believing it. And so it is with Rush, I will still listen to him, I will still look forward to his commentary on issues of politics, but no longer will I simply take his word for anything.
You see, what Rush did with this slut thing, was steal from his audience the in-depth analysis we deserved regarding the release of Sheriff Joe Arpaio's report on Obama's birth certificate and draft card.
Which brings me to the second Scriptural reference:
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! Isaiah 5:20-23 ACP/KJV
In other words, woe unto them that sell out to the evil one while claiming to be just and honorable.
Not long ago there were three secular sources Christians could rely upon to help make sense of the news, there was Rush and Andrew Breitbart and World Net Daily, now Andrew is dead, Rush has marginalized himself and we are left with just World Net Daily. Pray for the strength of WND.
Lord, make my faith as that which I perceive the Samaritans to have had. Amen.
As you ponder today's Scripture, ponder also your own relationship with Christ. Are you a Samaritan or are you a Galilean?
Lord give us eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart attuned to Your word.
Men, let us strive to be men who follow Christ, and pray our wives will, as Peter's and Abraham's wives did, simply follow.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage. While the Lord does not need the platforms and audiences that Rush, Sean and Michael have, they, Rush, Sean and Michael and their audiences need the Lord.
Pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
