OPINION, April 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by James Sterling:
Comments by Imus directed towards the Rutgers University women's basketball team were certainly wrong. Other such comments in past broadcasts are not so good either.
However, dear friends, Imus didn't have to humble himself and appear on that genuine faux preacher Rev. Al Sharpton's radio program and say that his comments were wrong, seeking forgiveness. Imus further stated he wanted to face those students he commented about, along with their parents, to apologize directly to them. Here was an opportunity for a real, born-again, spirit filled, called of God preacher to minister a crucified Christ and a risen Savior who could wash away his sins by his precious blood. Sharpton showed no love, no forgiveness, no Jesus --says only that Imus should be fired.
Not even Bishop T.D Jakes, who has more than enough resources, offered to embrace him with the love of Jesus and minister to Imus the awesome grace of our Lord.
Extortionist Rev. Jesse Jackson suggested that the radio network toss 'radio host' jobs to blacks might smooth things.
Evidently Folks, preachers of today never read, "...forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us..," or "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone."
Where are the mighty men of God with signs following!?
