Tony Snow

Tony fills in for Bill O’Reilly on the radio and about a month ago their was a story about a family who, for spiritual reasons, declined medical treatment. The result was that a child died from a treatable problem.

During the show Tony said that, “having faith in God means having faith in man.” I thought that was an incredible statement. If we believe in the overarching control of God, we have to also understand the power that God has given to mankind. If I need help and the only way I will accept it is from an angel, then I am an ignorant soul and do not really want help – I want attention and ultimatlery control. I want you to look at me and ask me my opinion. To live that way has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with a life controled and defined by ego. Nothing more, nothing less.
