The Way to Judge Tiger Isn’t His Mistakes

with 3 comments

Brit Hume reminded us all of something very important on Sunday.   We are in no position to judge Tiger Woods simply because he fooled around on his wife with a dozen women.   We can’t really put ourselves in Tiger Woods’ place and it isn’t fair for us to pass judgment on anything he does.  The only way really to judge Tiger Woods is the same way we judge everybody–by whether or not he is willing to accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.

Some people belittled Brit Hume for having the guts to say what we all were thinking.   That’s why I am posting his explanation and not just the small clip that a lot of people took out of context.  I think his explanation makes a lot of sense.

Now, as the son of a woman from a third world country, Tiger has misguidedly chosen Buddhism as his faith, but like most people he chose his faith at a young and impressionable age.   As an adult, I urge Tiger to shop around.   As Brit and Bill O’Reilly point out in the above clip, pound for pound you won’t find a more redemptive and forgiving faith than Christianity.   Some of the worst criminals in history have been Christians.   This isn’t a coincidence.

I applaud Brit Hume for letting Tiger know that Christianity is an option and that we would welcome him with open arms.   A lot of priests and ministers like a good game of golf.  I hope Tiger considers it.   Just look at some of the Christians have have found salvation after marital infidelity:

  • John Ensign
  • David Vitter
  • Mark Sanford
  • Larry Craig
  • Neil Bush
  • Rush Limbaugh
  • Newt Gingrich

There’s always room for one more.

  1. I think we can all agree that we shouldn’t judge Tiger. After all, we all make mistakes. However, I think it is appropriate to make fun of him. He’s a geeky looking guy who all of the sudden is wealthy beyond imagination. What does he do? Gets laid by every cocktail waitress in the world. It’s comedy gold. He’s practically done more for the entertainment industry than he ever did for golf.
