Simon Cowell is Just Like Jesus

SIMON Cowell is just like a 21st century Jesus – according to a band of hardcore Christians.
The X Factor mogul has been lauded in evangelical magazine Re, which believes his straight-talking and drive is just like The Messiah’s.
The official journal for the Assemblies of God church declares Simon’s coming on its cover under the headline: The Cowell Factor.
Inside it says: “Jesus, the one we think of as being meek and mild, gentle and loving and full of compassion, had the ability to talk tough. For some his words were upsetting and difficult to swallow – just like Cowell’s – but he spoke truth and doesn’t the truth hurt sometimes?
“Simon Cowell takes, learns from them and grows in the process, and there are numerous stories in the Bible of people who do the same.”
The article also brackets Cowell, 51, with the father of all nations, Abraham, and the prophet Elijah – who could raise the dead and went to heaven in a flaming chariot.
Hebrews 3 admonishes us to CONSIDER Christ as “the Apostle and High Priest of our confession” and then warns about hardening our hearts. I am preaching on that this morning.
- CONSIDER HIM ““ Was my last message. How we CONSIDER HIM is all important.
- DON’T HARDEN YOUR HEARTS;
- TAKE HEED TO YOURSELVES;
- EXHORT ONE ANOTHER.
By HIS grace I will continue down that track no matter who follows.
Pro 29:1 He, that being often reproved hardeneth [his] neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
