What me worry?


 

Sean Hannity’s favorite line is “let not your heart be troubled”.

Okay, that comes from John 14:1. Here is the full quote:
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.”

But the reality is, outside Jesus and the saving grace of God, you should be very troubled. Everything in this fallen world should be so troubling without Jesus Christ. He is the only thing that truly can calm our fears. The hope and the rock.

If current things do not trouble one’s heart a little, then one has to wonder about his/her state. The reassurance though is not of the world.

So when Sean borrows the words to put them into a different context, it really does them no good.

Later in that chapter He says:
“27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (NIV)

Yet almost every night he says in his show, “Let not your heart be troubled”. And why is that? What is he telling us? Why exactly should you not be troubled? He doesn’t say.

Unless he has some other explanation not to be troubled. Other than that, it just sort of bugs me hearing that blanket phrase all the time, especially as bad as things are now under the second occupation of Barack Obama.

    It says don’t worry in your heart. It doesn’t say not to work like hell to fight against evil.

  2. The point of the statement in John is to reassure that the dangers of the world are not where to place your attention, but instead upon God.

    Of course when Sean Hannity uses it, it’s ironic. His whole fame and career rests upon his ability to trouble people’s hearts, even if he has to make up stuff about what we should be afraid of!

    Bull, good article.

    I too get a little upset with Hannity, although I like him, because it’s almost like saying there is no reason to be troubled. I don’t think God meant for us never to be troubled. But, that we can turn to him in troubled times.

    I think what really upsets me when Hannity says that is it seems almost like a denial of what is going on in our country right now. Nobody, even on Fox, seems to know or doesn’t know, or doesn’t want to say how bad things are going in this country and how we are heading down into destruction.

    I’d rather people come out and say it, instead of being in denial or afraid to tell the truth. I want the truth.

    Also Jesus while on earth was troubled too and prayed to His Father to help him. But, Jesus knew the truth of what was going to happen to Him. He was not in denial about it.

      Pepp, good points all. I get a little frustrated I guess when we have enough media saying pretty much “don’t worry be happy, Obama is doing a great job and you don’t have to worry about anything.” Well they might as well say that.

      I would too, rather admit or acknowledge it. Heaven knows this pretender doesn’t want to. And they could ask him a few questions. I notice he is “not aware anyone is being threatened” about telling the truth. He’ll check right into that, uh huh, yep, he’s right on it. Let not your heart be troubled as he is ready to get away with burying Benghazi, controlling the press, and getting off Scott free for fast and furious, forget about what he did in Libya from the beginning, Obamascam, his treatment of Israel and foreign affairs. How’s that for the bright side?

      Fox seems a little intimidated too or something. And they’re worried about keeping their Spanish channel alive. And why is it we are supposed to give this commie sympathizer the benefit of the doubt when he can’t even answer questions or work with anyone but the rad-Left? Right Jesus would not have us in denial about the ways of the world. I was talking to a couple people about Ecclesiastes and they all said he sounds pretty depressed. I thought have you looked out the window or down the street lately. Depressing? 🙂

        Bull,

        Good points on the King getting away with all of his crimes. How depressing is that? Pretty darn bad. I read that 60% of this country is on anti-depressants and/or anxiety meds. So that tells ya just how bad people are feeling now since the fraud got elected. And with good reason.

        The Pravda news will never question this man. The are so in love with him. I don’t get it. What is there to love? Does the Pravda press think they are immune to his destruction? The news outlets on TV seem to be in their own little bubble of happiness and only God knows why. Maybe because they all are in DC or NYC they have no clue what it feels like to be the average Joe in this country.

        Do they ever talk to the average man to find out how he/she feels? No. DC is so running over with money now the people there are not suffering from the moron’s ideology but making money by the tons.

        Every week it seems a store in our little town goes out of business. People keep trying but there’s no money to go around. We have 4 dollar stores in town and everybody shops at them to save money. We have a grocery store with off brands and good prices. The place does a whopping business. We have a bunch of second hand stores where tons of people shop to get clothes for their kids.

        I thought it was depressing under Peanut Head Carter, but this is far worse now.

        I pray all the time to God asking Him to be on our side but how can He when He sees things such as the Gosnell trial and the other abortion horrors going on? The decadence this country has descended to is not what God likes to see IMHO. There is porn all over the TV. Our schools are teaching children that homosexuality is A-OK. There are even schools who teach children is it all right to have sex with an adult. It just gets worse every damn day.

        So how can He be on our side I ask myself.

          Pepp, that’s the part that gets me, what are the media doing? They are empowering and embolding this crap from the administration. Then they carry his water. Every time I hear the ask one descent question, they turn around and do his dirty work, as if they only want to create an illusion. (not even a good one)

          Remember they buried the news on oil prices that have people strapped. Under Bush they were posting the prices and trying to ask Bush if he is aware of the prices and what it does to the working people. Now its to hell with the working people, we have a president to prop up. The economy can’t breath with this going on.

          He does make Carter look like peanuts.

          I do believe in the power of prayer and its all we have right now. Half the Republicans we can’t count on…but they aare a darn sight better than progs. They are coming along tho. If God lifts his hand of protection from us we are toast. So many of us are in mourning for a once great nation. Then when I see Obama trying to make things as hard as he can for people so they feel the pain ….what’s the definition of torture? I’ll still label him a terrorist too.

            it makes me livid how the Pravda news not only carries his water, but like you said emboldens him to keep going further and further with his illegal acts against the Constitution.

            Oh how I remember the daily assaults on Bush about he oil prices and the unemployment rate which stayed at 4.5% during his tenure. Now it’s almost double that (if you believe their numbers???) and Pravda says NOTHING!!!

            I still believe in the power of prayer as well. If I didn’t I would have never gotten through the torture of my son’s death. God was with me the whole time helping me. And I believe that with all my heart.

            The nation is indeed mourning and it’s torture what the King is putting us through. It shows his lack of humanity and lack of caring. And then to make things even worse he takes mega costing vacations and throws it in our faces. He LIKES torturing us so I don’t want to hear another word about water boarding from that jackass.

    Great article Bull! I’ve been known to get pissed off at Sean, but usually agree with him. At least he does take a good portion of his time pointing out what bullshit the wanna be King Sumbitch is up too. I just think he has an ego problem, he’s narcissistic, cares more about his ratings and suffers from delusions of grandeur…besides that Sean and I are great friends. 🙂

    Good Ole clyde course makes a comment (as usual) I will never disagree with!! My dead black lab would be a better POTUS than the Bastard In Chief Barry! I’m not worried…no…not at all!!!
