CLARITY – 9-1-18 Who Pays is Critical


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 9-1-18

Who Pays is Critical


What’s Happening:  “Everyone was suspecting something might be up (well, at least I was) when it was announced that the U.S. and Mexico had reached a trade deal…and one talk-show host is willing to say it: Yep…Mexico just paid for the wall, but didn’t even know it ( But Trump tweeted: ‘Our new Trade Deal with Mexico focuses on FARMERS, GROWTH for our country, tearing down TRADE BARRIERS, JOBS and having companies continue to POUR BACK INTO OUR COUNTRY. It will be a big hit!’ Would you announce to the world you had just hoodwinked a country?”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “No way!”


Biblical Response:  “Way! Wayne Allyn Root is just a talk radio host and that doesn’t matter much (which may be by design), but we have just made a deal which benefits us many times more than the cost of a border wall. I know we don’t have a deal with Canada…yet.’


“Christians? Our whole belief system is based on Somebody else paying for something…it’s because Jesus paid for our freedom that we are free (John 8:31-36), not because we paid for anything! Not that we aren’t willing, but the payment would just have been insufficient (Heb. 9:22-28).”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help me to not be so proud as to reject when the freedom You offer costs me nothing, but You everything; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
