Actress and former kids television star Melissa Joan Hart has made her way into the news recently.
Is it for a new tv sitcom or a new movie? Nope, not this time. This time she’s under attack by the liberals on the left.
Melissa Joan Hart has become very passionate and open about her faith over the years. And she has seen this faith tested.
“I feel like every time something bad has happened, I’ve come out of it because of my faith. I’ve come out of because I don’t blame God, I guess,” said Melissa during an interview on the “Journeys of Faith with Paula Faris” podcast.
Years ago, when her son was transitioning from a Christian preschool to a traditional school, Hart was nervous. At his old school, she knew everyone. She told her then 6-year-old son:
“We don’t know if these people are good people. We don’t know if they believe in Jesus…and he really took the Jesus part to heart.”
On the bus, her son made friends with a neighbor who was Jewish.
Later, her son wanted to know, “If you’re Jewish, how do you get to heaven?”
Hart got a call from the friend’s mother after the boys started discussing religion. Hart said she and the mom had “chats” about these questions of faith that were congenial until their boys reached sixth grade.
“The conversations got a little more heated. And some problems came out of that,” she said, but did not elaborate.
Now there is an uproar and accusations of Hart being anti-Semetic because her example involved a Jewish child.
Here’s the thing and people shouldn’t be surprised by this, if you believe the Bible is true and you are a Christian, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father but by me.” Jews deny Jesus as the Messiah, therefore based on biblical precedent, she can’t say they get a free ride without Jesus.
Here are some of the things that the left is saying:
Dear Melissa Joan Hart, posing the antisemitism you are teaching your children as a question, does not make you any less of an anti-Semite. https://t.co/xG88Z5hmXg
