The Christian Factor

February 3, 2009

The following is an excerpt from Bill O’Reilly’s Culture Warrior, I replaced the word traditional warrior with the word Christian because I believe the message is just as applicable towards Christians.

The cornerstone of the [Christian] warrior’s code is to do what you say you are going to do. It is vital for [Christians] to understand that what you do, not what you say, defines you. Each day of your life should be devoted to fulfilling your responsibilities right down to the most insignificant. Even if it’s a little thing like saying you’ll call somebody, well call them. Don’t say stuff and then not do it. That’s sloppiness of character, and it can be habit forming. It is very important for [a Christian] to be a “standup” guy or gal.
What does that mean? Well, by being a standup, you tell the truth and defend your principles in public-even if they are unpopular. What you say should always mean something when you do decide to speak. Think about it. There is nothing worse than going to a place like Los Angeles and having people say “Let’s do lunch, babe”. Is there anything worse than that? It’s the dead giveaway of a creep.
But seriously, if you tell somebody you’ll do something-do it. People who honor their commitments and reject B.S. are impressive people. They actually stand for something. 
So the [Christian] code starts with you, the [Christian], doing what you say you’ll do. Simple, but powerful.
