When Kathy Griffin Blasphemed Jesus

NOTEWhen writing about God and Jesus, The Daily Jot means YHVH as God and Yeshua Ha Mashiach as Jesus–the actual original names and the true nature and character of them.

Many may not remember, but Comedian Kathy Griffin-the one who recently portrayed the beheading of President Donald Trump, blasphemed the name of Jesus in accepting an Emmy at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards in September 2007.  She said as she held up her statuette, “A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. Suck it, Jesus. This award is my god now.” The remarks were removed from the taped telecast and were not shown on national television.  Asked later about the remarks being offensive, Griffin reportedly told Reuters: “I hope I offended some people. I didn’t want to win the Emmy for nothing.”
In the September 14 Daily Jot, I wrote: “Strange.  I haven’t seen cars being burned in the streets of LA.  There have been no beheadings by radical religious fanatics.  Blocks of buildings have not been set on fire.  Movie theaters and television studios have not been bombed.  It appears that there have been no death threats to the people at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.  In fact, there hasn’t been any violence whatsoever.  Oh, that’s right.  Griffin said “Jesus” not “Mohammed.”  That explains it.  Either Christians don’t care if their Lord and Savior is blasphemed by a wicked Hollywood celebrity or they choose to behave in a more “Christ-like” manner in handling their offense of such things.”
In reality, there were Christians who were extremely offended by Griffin’s outrageous remarks-as they were with her beheading stunt.  And there are Christians who were, are and will be praying for her very soul. And there are many Christians who are reaching out to people in the name of Jesus to heal the sick, feed the poor, clothe the naked, and, ultimately conduct what is called the Great Commission found in Mark 16:15, “Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”  Generally speaking, Christianity today seeks to return good for evil rather than evil for evil.  And that’s why people like Griffin seem to get away with making comments like she did and remain in business to pull other offensive antics.
But Griffin isn’t getting away with anything.  Ultimately, the Bible says in Romans 14:11, “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”  And Revelation 20:12 says, “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.”  Imagine the awesome moment standing before God as he reads down that list of names in the book of life.  And imagine the horror if your name or the name of your loved ones are not in it.  Jesus wants none to perish, no not one. Let’s keep being salt and light to this dying world. We never know how important our actions are to the kingdom of God.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Our Feeding and Clothing Ministry Outreach in Ghana

By Pastor William Agbeti
[NOTE: This is an account of just one of many feeding and clothing programs conducted by The Daily Jot and our ministry partner Redeem West Africa in the rural areas of Ghana, West Africa. These are often areas under heavy Islamic pressure. We are also providing clean water in rural areas with our well projects. It’s your kind donations that make this possible–Blessings, Bill W]

KROBO-ODUMASE, Eastern Region, Ghana:

As early as 8am Sunday morning, February 5, they started pouring in. Two hundred and sixteen children, forty eight parents and a handful of the disabled, coming from various poor homes and communities, eagerly looking forward to a good, free meal.
The atmosphere was electrifying and heartrending – an entire community of children and parents showing up for a free meal.
Meals were served to the satisfaction of all. All had soda to drink and water to quench their thirsts.
Everyone participated in some sort of games and danced to popular local music. Joy, laughter, merry making and the spirit of love hung heavily in the air. This was heaven to many.
Then what we always dread at our feeding functions happened. It was time to say goodbye and depart. A surprise announcement was made, that all the children and their parents, including the disabled, would be given free food to take home!
They were asked to line up for the extra food. Suddenly there was a joyous stampede! Both children and adults started rushing to gain the best place in the queue to receive their free meals.
Tears rolled down the cheeks of volunteers, as they served in total silence.

The Daily Jot is totally reader supported. My wife, Chris, and I do not take a salary or receive any remuneration for this work. Your gifts go directly to assisting us in maintaining this column, the website, outreach, and the Lord’s work we do in Ghana, West Africa. Thank you for your prayers and support.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day,

Bill Wilson
