THE BOOK OF DANIEL

There is a new show debuting on NBC television January 6th called "The Book of Daniel". It is about a modern day family whose main character, the dad, is an Episcopal priest. He also happens to have a problem with Vicodin as well as some issues in his family, described as;

"a wife who relies on mid-day martinis, a 16-year-old daughter who is a drug dealer and a 16-year-old adopted son who is having sex with the bishop's daughter. At the office, the priests lesbian secretary is sleeping with his sister-in-law."

The creator of the series is a man named Jack Kenny, a homosexual who just happens to be introducing a 24 year old regular homosexual character in the show. No surprise there, but what is surprising are the following comments from Kenny;

Kenny said he does believe in Jesus, but explained, "I don't necessarily know that all the myth surrounding him is true, but I read his teachings, and I think he was a great teacher and a wonderful philosopher. I think he had a great idea: 'Love thy neighbor.' There's nothing wrong with that."

He says "I read his teachings". He thinks Jesus had a great idea in "Love thy neighbor". I wonder how he feels about Jesus teachings that He is the only way to the Father in John 14:6? Or that God created male and female from the beginning and that what God has joined together no man should separate, in Matthew 19:4-6? I wonder what Mr. Kenny feels about the reality of Hell and the necessity of having faith in Christ to avoid Hell? I wonder how he feels about Jesus teachings about He being God in flesh and as such the Author of all of God's Word which calls a man lying with another man a perversion and an abomination?

I wonder, but not too much, because Mr. Kinney like many others has and believes in design a God, a God of his own making that does what he wants , says what he wants, and has no real authority. He has not looked at all of the teachings of Jesus, if he had he would not promote homosexuality, nor would he create a series that promotes a family being in ministry that Jesus would clearly teach should not be in ministry. It is another attempt to put a perversion of God and His Word in the face of the American people.

I hope by now, you understand and can see through those who would claim to believe in the Bible and read the teachings of Jesus, while they promote lifestyles that are completely contrary to what the Word of God actually teaches. And don't fall for the line "it is a matter of interpretation, everyone interprets it differently". That either means the person does not read it, or they are not willing to submit to what it actually says!
