CLARITY – 10-10-19 The Only True Safety

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 10-10-19

The Only True Safety

What’s Happening: “Did the expensive Patriot Missile systems, six of which the Saudis bought from the U.S., fail in the recent attacks on Saudi oil fields? This is the question many are asking…but it has not yet been determined with 100% certainty if the attacks were missiles from Iran or smaller long-distance drones bearing smaller munitions from the Yemeni Houthis  (https://nationalinterest.org/blog/buzz/did-american-built-patriot-missiles-fail-protect-saudi-arabia-86691). ‘Saudi Arabia has been in talks to acquire the same S-400 advanced air-defense system that Turkey recently bought from Russia,’ said Marc Champion for Bloomberg.”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Why should I care? I mean, the Sept. 14 attack only raised the gas price for about a week.”

Biblical Response:  “If the attacks only temporarily inconvenienced your wallet, you may be of that unthinking uncaring crowd that is behind our nation’s moral slide. There is much at stake here: 1) The people whose lives depend on the safety these devices provide (of course, the only true safety is from the Lord –  Prov. 21:31); 2) The reputation of the manufacturer of the Patriot (Raytheon); 3) The bottom line of U.S. defense contractors vs. Russian manufacturers; etc.”

“Christians? Depending on the contemporary ‘arm of strength,’ whether it’s a sword and shield, a chariot and horse, or a defensive missile…is folly just begging to fail. Safety from God alone is reliable…of course that requires faith. That might be the whole point, anyway.” 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to prepare for the inevitable day of battle, but realize Your skirts are our only true refuge; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
