What is Wrong with Michael Savage?

You might ask why I would question the reasoning of Michael Savage when much of his political positions I tend to agree with?  Dr. Savage has been educated in the schools and holds impressive credentials.   However, he has failed to acquire a spiritual understanding of the Scriptures.  I use his words to prove that point.  Here is an editorial he published on his own website.  ” “If you start to ask, ‘Why would God permit a little baby to be killed along with his nice innocent parents?’ you start to get jaded,” noted Savage, adding:

You say to yourself, “I can’t believe in anything anymore.”

Then you start saying, “Why am I living? What’s the point of living if we are going to suffer and die and there’s no justice in the world.”

It’s easy to get depressed. Editor’s Note: “Dr. Savage if the death of that innocent child and his parents trouble you and cause you to question God, you should be even more concerned why God permitted the unjust death of His Son, Jesus Christ, at the hands of the wicked Jews and the political Roman government.  Keep in mind that each of us has the sentence of death already pronounced upon us.  We shall die.  Concerning the aforementioned child and his parents…God has them in His care as we speak.  They are not hurting.  You can trust babies with God and you can trust your loved ones with Him, too. “

But if you’re a person like me (Dr. Michael Savage), I can tell you the point of living.

If you’re a creative person, the reason for living is to create the greatest things you can. That’s it.

Because all is vanity anyway.

So if I buy oil paintings from 1890, I realize that the man was driven to paint those paintings because he wanted to make his mark while he was on this earth.

This is why creative people need to be cultivated. At the end of the day, they’re all we’ve got.

That’s why we detest Hollywood. Some of these people are so talented, and they’re wasting it on such horrendous left-wing, socialist, totalitarian, thought patterns.  It eats us alive.”

Dr. Michael Savage does not know the point of living:

He confesses, “But if you’re a person like me (Dr. Michael Savage), I can tell you the point of living. If you’re a creative person, the reason for living is to create the greatest things you can. That’s it.  Because all is vanity anyway.”

No, Dr. Savage, you have it wrong.  God gives you the exact instruction on what you should pursue in this life.  “And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.” Luke 10:27  God said it first in Deuteronomy 6:5.  So it gives this admonition on both Testaments.  It is importan!

Christian people are to go and make disciples for the Lord Jesus Christ.  We are to reproduce…that is we are to win lost souls to Christ.  Michael Savage…if you are a Christian…that is what you are to do.  Use your great and powerful influence to touch the minds, hearts and souls of people and turn them to Christ.  The last thing Jesus instructed His disciples to do was to go into all the world and teach/preach the Gospel to every creature.  In case you do not know what that Gospel is…The Apostle Paul presents the Gospel to you in great clarity in First Corinthians 15, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.”

Paul lets you know he was enlisted by God to “Preach the Gospel.”

So, Dr. Savage, with all the accumulated knowledge you have and you have much, turn that keen mind of yours to the Scriptures and let God direct your path.  There is more to life than the vanity of creative individuals without any regard they might have to God and His work.

You, Sir, are to seek first the Kingdom of Heaven and His righteousness.  Matthew 6:33.

An ordained Baptist minister. Worked for 10 years with a Christian publishing ministry where I was the circulation manager for a growing publication, The Sword of the Lord. I also did most of direct mail fundraising and promotion. I have pastored churches in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama & Arkansas. I served for some four years as Vice President of The Spoken Word of God ministry, Orlando, FL. This ministry was active in church planting in India and broadcasting the Scriptures via Trans World Radio and other radio outlets. My associate in this ministry later invited me to join him and his dad in starting a business working with churches providing multimedia equipment. I have done this work for the last 16 years. This blog, hopefully, will scratch an itch I have for communicating the Word of God to a broader audience via the Internet. I would be honored to hear from you via email.
