CLARITY – 1-9-19 Father Knows Best


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 1-9-19

Father Knows Best

What’s Happening: “Outgoing Gov. Rick Scott, (or should I say Senator Elect Scott?) has appointed the Parkland, Florida shooting victim dad Andrew Pollack, 52 (father of 18 year-old victim Meadow) to the Florida State Board of Education. Mr. Pollack is an outspoken gun advocate that believes each teacher should be trained and armed ( ‘Accountability for School Boards and Superintendents, increased teacher pay, and enacting and enforcing school safety initiatives are my priority,’ Pollack said.”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “What can one father do?”

Biblical Response:  “Plenty! Especially if he’s motivated…and he certainly has every right to be. Will he (or any State School Board) solve the shooting problem? Not until you remove the mentally ill or the evil of every human will that be the case…but he may be able to provide the impetus that will enact sufficient measures to decrease the collateral damage of insanity or evil…at least in the Florida public school system.”

“Christians? More guns and more training might be the short-term fix, but nothing short of universal transformation (Rom. 12:2) will ever be the long-term solution (and that may not happen this side of heaven).”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to enact reasonable safety measures in our public institutions, while we seek the long-term solution only Your nature in us will provide; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
