Almost everyone who responded to Matt Lauer news of his sexual misconduct responded with attacking him. But Rev. Franklin Graham took another approach, he reminded everyone to have in mind their own sins.
“What we’re seeing in the recent string of what is termed ‘misconduct’ really boils down to a morality issue — people failing to follow God’s standards, and that is called sin,” wrote Graham on his Facebook page.
“The Bible tells us, ‘…be sure your sin will find you out,’” the post read. “This is a warning to all of us to examine our lives. That doesn’t just apply to movie stars, media personalities, and politicians, but to everyone. One sin leads to others and can have a great impact on our own lives and the lives of those around us.”
“Sin has devastating consequences — here on earth, and for eternity. But God is anxious for us to come to Him in repentance and ask for His forgiveness and help. True healing comes through trusting Jesus Christ in faith and following Him as the Lord of our lives.”
Graham is not saying that people shouldn’t be angry with Lauer, but that Christians, and all humans, should make sure that they live righteous lives instead of obsessing over others mistakes.
Lauer is a great example of this point.
Several months ago, during an interview with ex-Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, Lauer lectured him over the sexual “misconduct” allegations, saying to him that he is guilty.
“(T)hink about those five women and what they did,” Lauer said to O’Reilly. “They came forward and filed complaints against the biggest star at the network they worked at. Think of how intimidating that must have been, how nerve-wracking that must have been.”
“Doesn’t that tell you how strongly they felt about the way they were treated by you?” he asked him.
The hypocrisy of Lauer’s comments wasn’t lost on radio host Rush Limbaugh:
“What went through Matt Lauer’s mind when he asked these questions?”
“‘We got you, Bill, we got you … and I’ve been doing everything you’ve been doing, Bill, and I’m still here, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha,’” Limbaugh said.
The point here is that while Lauer was attacking and accusing O’Reilly, he didn’t stop the think about his own mistakes. And just to be clear O’Reilly denied the allegations, while Lauer admitted that the allegations against him, are in fact, true.
