CLARITY – 11-23-18 Obfuscation

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 11-23-18

Obfuscation

 

What’s Happening: “When the head of the Russian spy agency, Igor Korobov, (62) died recently, it came as no surprise to many (the GRU’s previous head died at 58). He is credited recently with interfering in the 2016 U. S. election and the poisoning of ex-spy Sergei Krispal in the UK (https://www.yahoo.com/news/russian-military-intelligence-head-korobov-042059166.html). Of course, who believes TASS (the Russian government-sponsored news agency) anyway.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “TASS is known for serving its own ends.”

 

Biblical Response:  “Yep. Perhaps they think both investigations will die with Korobov. In any case, we may complain about the need for transparency here, but they have plenty in Russia…it’s just you can’t trust any of it. TASS reminds me of the tongue-in-cheek Soviet-era news agency PRAVDA (‘truth’ in Russian)…it’s no more reliable. What happens when the ‘fourth estate’ isn’t functioning properly? Just look at Russia.”

 

“Christians? We believe in transparency and truth (John 8:32), but as Jer. 6:14 (LB) says: ‘You can’t heal a wound by saying it’s not there.’ Just telling people to ‘pay no attention to the man behind the curtain’…will not divert attention from the truth.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help our pursuit of the truth not blind us to the rampant obfuscation attempts of the Deceiver; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
