Conservatives are far and few between in the mostly Liberal-controlled Hollywood. That’s why it is remarkable for the word Jesus or God to appear in anything other than a string of obscenities or as the punchline of a joke in today’s network television shows.
Star of ABC’s Last Man Standing, Tim Allen had a response to those who say there is no room for Jesus in television. It included a scene with a very powerful message of what Jesus and God means to those who follow the Christian faith.
In the show, Ryan is the son-in-law to Tim Allen’s character. Ryan tells his Christian friend, Kyle, that his son, Boyd, confessed to stealing some candy.
Kyle is happy about that, but Ryan then explains that his frustration is over the fact that Boyd only confessed because Kyle told him about Jesus.
“I want Boyd to tell the truth because it’s the right thing to do, and not because he thinks he’s gonna be punished by an angry God.”
The Left is usually critical of the Christian God because they claim that he is a vengeful God who will smite anyone who does follow him. Some Liberals have even equated Him to a fascistic dictator.
However, it is not so. Christianity does not tell its followers to kill non-believers, stone adulterers, have sex with children, or treat women as servants. Any god who did that would be a god who the Left should be criticizing.
Kyle explained that Boyd did not confess to stealing because he was afraid of divine retribution, but instead confessed because he was comforted that his father would still love him even for all of his flaws. Kyle said that compassion and understanding makes him just like Jesus.
“I never said that. Boyd was scared that if he told you what he did, you wouldn’t love him anymore. So I said you were like my friend Jesus, and even if I do something bad, as long as I’m honest, He still loves me.”
Tim Allen, and Last Man Standing, had been breaking down the barriers that the Left has instilled that kept God and Jesus out of the entertainment industry.
