CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 2-14-20

Potential Trumps Certainty

What’s Happening: “With the Nevada Caucus coming up on the 22nd and the South Carolina Primary coming up on the 29th, Amy Klobuchar’s ‘big tent’ stance on abortion may be a welcome philosophy…I guess we’ll see. That is pretty much the sentiment of a Yahoo News article by Jon Ward that appeared on the 12th, detailing most of the Democrat front-runners’ stands on the pro-choice/pro-life debate (https://www.yahoo.com/news/klobuchars-big-tent-stance-on-abortion-could-appeal-to-southern-democrats-232930989.html). ‘I am strongly pro-choice. I have always been pro-choice. But I believe we’re a big-tent party, and there are pro-life Democrats, and they are part of our party. I think we need to build a big tent. We need to bring people in instead of shutting them out,’ said Klobuchar.”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “I think the biggest issue in Democrat’s minds is who can beat Trump.”

Biblical Response:  “That may well be…and that’s the bottom line for some. But for others, it’s all about life. Most Democrat candidates personally stand on the pro-choice side (I mean, it is in their party platform). Where does God stand, and why? Potential outweighs certainty. If a baby is allowed to be born he or she might be born again….and who knows what good will be done (only God)? Of course, then, there’s the certainty of death. No good can come from a life never lived.”

“The following scripture comes to mind:

‘The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.’ (John 10:10 NASU)’

That pretty much sums it up for me.” 

“Christians? We were known for catching children (the first century ‘pro-lifers’) being tossed into the Tiber in the early church. If a child was unwanted, Romans would just throw them away. Christians standing below bridges would try to catch those that were being so tossed.”  

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to make a difference and forgive our selfishness; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
