Pharisees Alive and Well

The recent furor kicked off by Brit Hume's statements on a Fox News panel just highlights the point that Pharisees are still among us. Even those who claim a personal relationship with Christ have gone out of their way to lambaste Hume for daring to suggest that Christianity is superior to other religions of the world. Here are my questions to these folks.
  1. In what other religion is there a Savior who bled and died for the sins of mankind?
  2. What other religion has a leader who rose from the dead and lives today "ever making intercession for the saints"?
  3. What other religion offers forgiveness to those who confess and repent of their sins
My take on the reason so many have tee'd off on Hume is that either they are under conviction because they recognize the truth of what he said, or (if they are believers) they are convicted because they don't have the guts to publicly acknowledge their faith. I'm reminded that Jesus warned that those who denied Him before man, He would deny before the Father.
I'm also aware that God's Word tells us that He does not want "any to perish, but all to come to repentance." (2 Peter 3:9)
I'm so pleased and proud that a brother in Christ who has been given a platform from which to speak had the courage to speak his convictions without being afraid of what the PC's of the world would think. May his tribe increase.
