Today's Christian Broadcast Network (CBN) website reports that veteran journalist Brit Hume, a Fox News contributor, this week gave straightforward advice to Tiger Woods, who has seen his reputation plummet in the wake of marital infidelity -- turn to Christ.
"He's said to be a Buddhist. I don't think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith," Hume said. He added, "So my message to Tiger would be, 'Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.'"
Hume, whose son committed suicide 11 years ago, made the statement on the Fox News Channel on Sunday, January 3, 2010.
Hume said he was speaking from experience, since he himself turned to Christ after his son's suicide. He said turning to Christ helped him to comfort the horrendous pain he was suffering, because Christ forgives sinners who genuinely ask Him for forgiveness.
