In an article posted on Foxnews.com, actor Steve Guttenberg makes the following statement:
“Listen, I’m a nobody. I’m sure if George Clooney was there she’d have had a heart attack but the great thing about being famous is it’s a new religion. Jesus is not the big name anymore. The big names are Brad and Angelina. That’s just the way it is. If we walked Jesus, Brad Pitt and George Clooney down Fifth Avenue, I think Clooney and Pitt would get a lot more attention.” (Online Source)
You want to know what’s so sad (or sickening) about that statement? In many people’s lives, he’s probably right. Shows the age we live in when mortal men (who have the loose morals of the world) are more respected than the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. However, regardless of the praise these men are offered on earth, their knees will bow to the same Savior as mine, and their lips will confess that He is Lord. Guttenberg’s as well.
I know this is Steve Guttenberg’s opinion and not the opinion of Brad Pitt and George Clooney, but, you know this is nothing new. Jesus has been rejected and slurred for centuries. Why should now be any different?
