CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 11-14-18

I’ve  Got the Solution

 

What’s Happening: “Everybody’s frustrated and the claims of ‘stealing’ the election are not restricted to a party designation – the Democrats in Georgia claim’ stealing,’ the Republicans in Arizona claim ‘stealing,’ and there have been complaints from both sides in Florida . All of this could be avoided by an old analogue (as opposed to the more modern ‘digital’) method: (https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-composition-of-the-indelible-ink-used-in-the-elections-in-India) ELECTION INK! As the article reveals, India has been using this method for years. Sure, it’s messy, but the stain can also be regarded as a badge of proud self-determination and participation. The ink cannot be removed for 7 days, plenty long enough for counting and certification.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Yeah, but then there will probably be efforts to cheat even that system.”

 

Biblical Response:  “No doubt. Nothing is foolproof. As long as there are men and women who lack integrity, there will be attempts at cheating. Still, we don’t have to make it so easy for folks….I mean, really…hanging chads?…‘found’ ballots?”

 

Christians? Staining is nothing new. There is nothing so indelible as the blood of Christ . It changes a man forever. Sure, you may still sin…but His blood testifies against you until you repent (Gen. 4:10). Sure, people may falsify most reality, but there a reality that can’t be falsified.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to accept outcomes we don’t like, and find ways of voting that are harder to falsify; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
