… the story of a wee little man.
The Huckster has a campaign manager, his name is Ed Rollins. Mr. Rollins made his bones in the political world managing Ronald Reagan’s 1984 presidential campaign. Reagan won 49 states that year. So, he has got some chops.
Rollins knows how to get the heat off his candidate. The manager simply says it was his fault and in the same breath blame it on timing or some such issue. This is what Rollins did with that horror of a press conference from New Year’s Eve. During that episode I told you why the Huckster makes me nervous/nauseous/nauseated.
So team Huck is out doing damage control. Here is the problem… The Huckster is the one who stood up and played the hypocrite. He played the video, while telling us he was too godly to play the video. So, in keeping with his character, he now sends someone else out to take the blame and tell everyone to lighten up.
This is not what repentance looks like. When our sin finds us out (and it will) the proper response is to meet with the Forgiver of sins and do what Zacchaeus did in Luke 19:
1 Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. 2 Now behold, there wasa man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. 3 And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” 6 So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully. 7 But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, “He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.”
8Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.”
9 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; 10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
So Huck, if you did wrong (and I think you did), repent and make like the original wee little man.
