Everyday, countless unknown believers share their faith, at work, home, school, etc, all outside of any limelight or attention, However, it’s a little rare to hear the Lord’s message of redemption and forgiveness shared on cable TV by a highly respected journalist. But that’s just what Brit Hume did!
Watch this 3-minute video of his discussion with Bill O-Reilly on Fox:
Justin Taylor offers a detailed and insightful discussion on this interview at his website, The Gospel Coalition. Also, check out an exceptional Q&A interview with Mr. Hume by Sarah Pullman Bailey of Christianity Today.
I was so encouraged by this news worthy piece and my sentiments couldn’t be expressed better than what Paul Werner of the National Review concluded in his article, “Hume’s Gentle Witness“:
“Brit Hume is rightly recognized as one of the finest journalists of his generation. He also turns out to be a man of deep Christian faith who isn’t afraid to say so. That makes him not only rare, but very nearly unique. And admirable. “
“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.
You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:11-16
Thank you, Mr. Hume!
