God Has Not Forgiven Tiger Woods
By David J. Stewart
Luke 13:5, “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
I was saddened to read about the downfall of Tiger Woods. While committing adultery with hundreds of women while touring the nation playing golf, he had no idea that some of them were maliciously recording him to sell the videos and photos to the rotten media tabloids. They saved voice messages from Mr. Woods on their answering machines. The women hid secret cameras in hotel rooms to record Tiger in bed... IN THE ACT. Those evil women and their pimps set Tiger Woods up to blackmail him out of his money. As Tiger Woods has learned the hard way, you cannot play with fire without getting burned. All of the Devil's apples have worms!
Some of the tabloids blackmailed Tiger Wood's press agents, exchanging the lewd photos in return for an exclusive interview with Tiger that the tabloid could make millions of dollars selling. Everyone has focused on Tiger Woods since the news broke, but all those whores who set him up, took photos and blackmailed him ought to be in prison. Nothing bad happened to any of them. It's the new America today... cut your neighbor's throat... betray each others... steal, kill and destroy! Jesus foretold in Matthew 24:10 that in the End Times people will hate and betray one another.
Tiger Woods publicly said he was sorry and even called his adulteries “transgressions” and “sins.” So you may ask, how in the world can you say that God hasn't forgiven Tiger Woods? Very simply... because Mr. Woods is Buddhist in his religious beliefs. Buddhism denies that Jesus is the Christ, the only begotten Son of God.
1st John 2:22-23, “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.”
Mr. Woods has never repented toward God for His sins. Tiger Woods has no faith in Jesus as the Christ. The Bible teaches that there is NO salvation apart from the name of Jesus Christ...
Acts 4:10-12, “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
Tiger Woods has not obeyed the Biblical gospel. Jesus DIED, was BURIED and ROSE again three days later for our justification. Jesus shed His precious literal blood for our sins (1st Peter 1:18-19). The Bible warns that all those who refuse to obey the gospel will be cast into Hell forever and God will pour out His vengeance upon that person...
2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.”
Tiger Woods has never been born-again! Mr. Woods has been an openly professed Buddhist most of his life...
Tiger Woods' apology brings new attention to Buddhism
February 19, 2010|By Dan Gilgoff, CNN
Tiger Woods on Friday said that he had drifted from the Buddhist faith he had practiced most of his life
When Tiger Woods invoked his religious faith during his public apology on Friday, he readily acknowledged that a lot of people would be surprised.
"People probably don't realize it," he said, "but I was raised a Buddhist, and I actively practiced my faith from childhood until I drifted away from it in recent years."
But Woods said his Buddhist faith would be a key part of his quest to put his life back together after revelations of his marital infidelity, which he admitted for the first time. Buddhist experts said Woods' summation of the tradition's beliefs was accurate -- and that his remarks likely will bring more attention to the faith in a week when its highest profile leader, the Dalai Lama, is visiting the United States.

The public will forgive Tiger Woods and his career will be restored because he is a Buddhist. Jesus said in John 15:19 that the wicked world will receive and love their own; but the world absolutely will not accept, tolerate nor forgive a true Bible-believing, born-again, Christian. If Tiger Woods were a Christian, then his career would have been finished in 2010 when the story went public. Wicked people don't mind a spiritualist like Clint Eastwood who says he's always favored Buddhism, or a wishy-washy unsaved Charismatic like Katy Perry who says her family speaks-in-tongues. But the world will not tolerate a Christian who honors the Lord with their life and words. If you hide your candle under a bushel as a Christian, then the world will tolerate you. Those who live godly in Christ Jesus are persecuted (2nd Timothy 3:12).
I do not question the sincerity of Tiger Woods. I'm sure that he is a very sincere man, but sincerity is a road to Hell and destruction if it's not rooted in obedience to God's Word (Proverb 14:12; 16:25). Buddhism is of the Devil. Buddha did not die for Tiger's sins. Buddha did not raise from the dead, but is still laid where he was buried. Buddha was a mere human being; but Jesus came as God incarnate (God manifest in the flesh, 1st Timothy 3:16 - King James Bible). Jesus came to earth as the God-man! There can be no salvation apart from the name of Jesus, Who is the Christ, the only begotten Son of God.
Let me clarify that God is willing to forgive and save ANYONE, but only via the cross of Jesus Christ. There is NO forgiveness in formalized religion, nor in rituals or ceremonies. Forgiveness is found only in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Acts 10:43, “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.” God wants to forgive Tiger Woods, and would in a heartbeat if Mr. Woods would believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 16:30-31).
However, God will NOT forgive anybody who rejects Jesus as the Christ. As long as Mr. Woods puts his faith in the demonic religion of Buddhism instead of Christianity he will never be saved, and will ultimately go straight to Hell upon his last dying breath. I pray it be not so.
"In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ."
