Bill O'Reilly is far from being theologian. I watch him on Fox News quite frequently and have noticed that he has made numerous such mistakes. Some of them have been pointed out to him by viewers and he has come back later on occasion and apologized, admitting his mistake.

 I am no theologian either, but to call Paul a 'pagan'!  That surely demonstrates a minimal knowledge of the Bible.  But the Lord uses people in His own way, and O'Reilly has been great for fighting the anti-Christian forces.
I was wondering if  O'Reilly was confusing Paul with some other NT figure, but I can't think of anyone that could be described as 'a Roman warrior and pagan activist'.  Anyone have any ideas?

I just think that he did not realize that Paul was not only Roman but also a Jew. I have heard many other Christians that have said the same thing. With the thought of him being only a Roman it would be understandable that he would think of him as a pagan. Then again there are those that consider the Pharisees as being pagans.

I just finished reading Left Behind: Kingdom Come. It was good but doesn't match what I think the Millennium Kingdom will be like.

Here is what I believe:
There will be no mistrust. Everyone will know who is a believer and who
There will be no unbelievers in the kingdom itself.
Satan is to be released at end of millennium and will be out for alot more than a few days.

Perhaps people who grew up with pictures or movie portrayals of Paul in a sort of toga and with sandals confused him with being a Roman, when he was actually a Greek-speaking Jew who happened to be a citizen of the Roman Empire.  I don't see how anyone could think that the Pharisees were pagans, surely a pagan is an idol-worshiper and polytheist.
One of the most remarkable things about the conversion of Paul is that he was a devout Jew who followed all 613 commandments, but the Lord completely changed him in an instant.  If he had been a pagan, the conversion would not have been such an amazing one, and also a pagan could never have quoted from the Hebrew scriptures as Paul does when he explains the Messianic role of Jesus.

Hi David, yes there will be sinners in the Millennium Kingdom.

Isaiah 65:20 There shall no more be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who dies prematurely; for the child shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner who dies when only a hundred years old shall be [thought only a child, cut off because he is] accursed.

Those who survived the Tribulation are saints. So the first few years of the Millennium will be sin free, with Christ on the throne and all citizens of the earth believers.

As newborns come along, obviously, they will be sinners in need of forgiveness and salvation from our Lord. I believe the scriptural prophecy indicate that anyone who does not trust Christ by the age of one hundred will be accursed (die). When Satan is again loosed for a season at the end of the Millennium, despite that the earth is massively populated with more believers than have ever lived, there will still be those who live for themselves and constitute the army of the rebellion against God.

Only heaven itself will finally be populated with only believers.

I'm thinking that Pastor Roger said this with "tongue in cheek".  As far as a pagan being an idol-worshipper, then Pharisees would certainly fit that catagory in that they worshipped "self" in that they were prideful.

Yes, it was said with "tongue in cheek". I still haven't found a smiley that will indicate that.  Wink

Not only did they worship self they also held the traditions of men in higher regard than they did God Himself.

Well i just finished reading (English version of) Zhirinovsky manifesto, "The Final Thrust to the South."   You wouldn't believe how close it is to the battle plan, in Ezekiel 38 & 39. Looking at Putin, and the Russian government.............

I just finished reading the most moving book.  It fact no since I read "To Kill a Mockingbird" in school has a book touched me so emotionally and spiritually too!  It's called:  Same Kind of Different As Me.  It's about Denver Moore who was a homeless man and Ron and Debbie Hall who started volunteering at a homeless shelter in Texas.  Now that doesn't sound too interesting does it?  Let me tell you if read this book, you won't be the same and you won't forget it.  I'm included just a bit of Denver's bio here to see it that will hook ya!

DENVER MOORE'S BIOGRAPHY


 Denver was born in rural Louisiana in January 1937, and after several tragic events went to live on a plantation in Red River Parish with his Uncle James and Aunt Ethel, who were share croppers.

 Sometime around 1960, he hopped a freight train and began a life as a homeless drifter until 1966 when a judge awarded him a 10 year contract for hard labor at the Louisiana State School of Fools, aka, Angola Prison!

 According to Denver, he went in a man and left a man and received a standing ovation from prisoners in the yard as he walked out of there in 1976.  For the next 22 years he was homeless on the streets of Fort Worth, Texas.  However, there were a few times after a brush with the law, he'd ride the rails visiting cities and hobo jungles across America, sampling regional cuisine like Vienna sausage with fellow passengers.

 In 1998, "He never met Miss Debbie," Miss Debbie met him and his life was changed forever.

 Today, he is an artist, public speaker, and volunteer for homeless causes.  In 2006, as evidence of the complete turn around of his life, the citizens of Fort Worth honored him as "Philanthropist of the Year" for his work with homeless people at the Union Gospel Mission.


I have just started:  God Works the Night Shift.  Also a fabulous book!
