Fox News senior analyst Brit Hume appeared on The O'Reilly Factor tonight and stood by the statements he made this weekend regarding his advice for Tiger Woods to turn to Christianity. In fact, Mr. Hume went even further this evening with his thoughts on redemption and Jesus Christ. (videos below)

Will miss Brit Hume when he retires, just as I miss Tony Snow.
Woah. The libtards will be all over this. Stand tall Mr. Hume!
Brit was the only one I really watched on Fox.
He did a really good job during Reagan’s funeral.
Wow! Straight from the heart, too.
I like Brit. I sold him a car in the early 90’s. I was the official check taker. Not the salesman. He traded in an old Mercedes 300D.

Brit Hume and Tony Snow = Two Class Acts.
I watched FNC for them.
Shame Tony is gone. He will be and is sorely missed.
Hope Brit decides to stay for a long time.
After reading his statement, I stand by Brit Hume.
Brit Hume understands the power of his faith, the power of Christ. Tony Snow did too.
Same here. I always thought he was a really good man. Now I know it.
I came to this understanding in a round about manner and saw the explanation of it best in "Mere Christianity" by CS Lewis. (my hero)
I think that Christianity offers the most to all men and that those of us that try to be Christians know how both hard and easy it can be, if only we trust in God totally and not in anything that this world or man provides.
I hope Tiger can somehow save himself, the road he's on is a one way ticket to Palookaville.
This is one of things I always lked about Brit when he was in the public eye and doing the news, he wore his Christianity in his heart and not on his sleeve.
Now that he’s retired, more power to him.
They cut off an important part. “You speak the name of Christ and all hell breaks out.”
The whole thing is here - go to 2:58
The Reformed position, more or less, is that it is impossible for ANY man to redeem himself; indeed, it is ONLY the work of the Holy Spirit, initiating grace in the unregenerate man’s heart. No man will seek Christ of his own accord.
As that beautiful song goes ‘just a sinner saved by Grace’? I would agree wholeheartedly. Props to Mr. Hume, takes some stones to profess and defend the faith. :-)
I was watching ESPN’s “Around the Horn” (or Pardon the Interruption, it was on before SportsCenter) and the guy was savaging Brit Hume. Said Tiger shouldn’t take advice from “these news guys.”
heck, I don't know any of the theory behind Christianity. I'm only a believer that there is a God, that he sent Jesus to us and that by his dying he somehow made a payment for my soul. I hope and pray daily that I can somehow find my way to honor his gift, but everyday I fail, dust myself off and try again. I just hope and pray that God helps me find a way to help me honor him and all that he's given me.
I can't imagine the temptations that Tiger had, with all the money, fame and adoring women. All of this since he was a teenager.... I doubt very seriously that I wouldn't have done the same thing or worse.... I am no saint and can easily see how the devil could have allowed pride to work it's evil magic.
YEP....BRIT is giving Tiger a really good OPTION.....it’s up to him to choose it....no one can MAKE him.....which is what the liberal lulu’s scream about....idiots.
ESPN is a cesspool of liberalism and political correctness. It’s a network best avoided.
That is true. However, it could be that God, the Holy Spirit is using Brit Hume to begin to draw and woo Tiger Woods or someone listening in to faith. There is no doubt that it is the Holy Spirit which quickens faith in Jesus, but, praise the Lord, He chooses to use His people to do it.
Someone with the truth, and unafraid to speak it.
Hmmm...looks like Mr. Hume was right..."all hell is breaking out..."
Apparently most don't want to hear the truth these days, or don't give a damn about the salvation of their soul!
I always keep in mind the private relevation that Our Lady of Fatima told Lucia when Lucia asked how many people would go to hell?
Mary responded, "as many as snowflakes in a blizzard."
That keeps me going.
Thanks for the link to the full video. Remarkable. I’ve always admired and respected Britt Hume, and this certainly is a powerful reinforcement.
It has been a puzzle to many freepers over the years why Fox didn’t give Britt a better time slot. He was their best guy, with the possible exception of Tony Snow, already mentioned on this thread.
I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that Brit had entered the seminary after he retired full time from Fox news. Or at least had started taking seminary classes. If so, I’m sure he doesn’t care what anyone thinks about his witnessing except Jesus. (who I’m sure is very pleased!)
I remember when someone asked hm on the air what he planned to do in retirement, one of the things he mentioned was “study the Holy Bible.”
I totally agree with what you said. My prayer partner and I had a great burden to pray for Tiger Woods right after it happened. We prayed that God would bring a Christian in Tiger’s life to help counsel him and bring to a point where all he could do is turn to Jesus. Seeds are being planted now.
God Bless Britt Hume.
“it is ONLY the work of the Holy Spirit, initiating grace in the unregenerate mans heart. No man will seek Christ of his own accord.”
Would you explain this. I have trouble understanding grace and how to get it. Is it faith first, then grace. I can’t seem to understand it. If you are in need of help how do you get it? Fear sometimes is so overwhelming your mind freezes up. What to do?
It is first grace, then faith. It works in this way.
The place to start in understanding grace/salvation is first to understand what the Bible teaches about man and sin. All people are born sinners. They are sinners by nature. They have no desire or ability to seek God or His ways. Because of this they all are condemned by God.
But God by His choice and for His purpose has chosen to save some of them. He then, in His chosen time and by His chosen means brings the ones He has chosen to faith in Christ and salvation. God does this because of His grace (undeserved favor), and not because of any merit of the person so chosen. Now, this that I have described is all from God's side. This is the part of salvation we do not see.
Now, from our (man's) side it looks like this. We hear the Gospel or parts of it. If God has caused the person to be born again, he understands the message and either accepts it or wants to hear more. Because of the work of the Holy Spirit in the new birth,upon this person, their spiritually dead mind is now made alive (spiritually) and can understand the issues of sin and salvation. His sin, which he formerly embraced and loved, is now a terrible burden and inflicts upon him the cost he cannot pay and a punishment he cannot bear. He is now desperately seeking a remedy and relief of this burden. He sees himself a guilty and condemned sinner before a holy, holy, holy God.
Further, he now sees Jesus Christ, who he formerly ignored, as the answer to his calamity. It is only Christ who has paid the price of his sin and borne the penalty of it as well. By faith in Christ and this work of His, the man is saved.
For you, if you desire forgiveness for your sin, don't worry about "finding" grace, it has already found you. Recognize Christ as the remedy for your sin, repent of it, pray that He will accept you into His family (the Bible promises that "whoever comes to Me, I will in no case cast out) and you will be saved.
My impression is that Brett was in management at Fox news. I think he could have had any time he wanted.
Just my impression from the outside.
I will try for you, since you asked and seem sincere.
Jesus said that He is the Way and the Truth and the Light; that no one comes to the Father except through Him.
He said that God desires not one of us to be lost to Him.
John 3:16 - For God so loved the owrld that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
3:17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
3:18 He that believeth on Hom is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath no believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
It is not through anything that we do. You can be the most moral person on the planet, without knowing Christ, your works are as filthy rags. It is only through Faith in Jesus that Salvation is possible.
How do you ‘get help’? Ask Jesus into your heart. Pray to Him, acknowledge that you are a sinner, that you are lost, that you need Him and His love in your life. Ask Him to save you, ask for His forgiveness.
It really is that simple. Do you have a Bible accesible? If so, please read the Gospel (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John). God does not want His children to have a spirirt of fear. Throughout the Bible we are told to “Fear Not” 365 times, once for each day.
Find a church, one that preaches Christ as your Saviour, that He is the Son of God, Crucified for our sins, and Risen in 3 days.
There is so much I want to say, it is hard to put it all down without rambling at times. I hope this helps. You are in my prayers. Please, think on this, it is Eternity we are talking about, not necessarily this life. Feel free to answer or FReepmail me.
Give Brit Hume his own show on Faith and Culture for the moral and faith issues.
