A Biblical Response to Current Events – 2-16-18



What’s Happening:  “Everyone is sad about the tragedy in Florida…however, meanwhile much has happened you did not hear about…like Rex Tillerson going to Turkey to ease tensions there (, or the comments the Vice President made about the White House’s wisdom in its handling of the Porter issue (, or the news that Austrian snowboarder Markus Schairer broke his neck  during the snowbardcross quarterfinals at the Olympics in Pyeongchang (, or…the list could go on …but the media controls the narrative…and ratings control the media. Not until people tune out bad news in preference of good news will that change.”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “But that’s human nature and that’ll never change.”


Biblical Response:  “It would really be sad if that were true…thankfully, it is possible to change (Ezek. 11:19-20). Isaiah 11 might sound weird and other-worldly, but it’s a promise and God doesn’t make empty promises.”


“Sure, the human nature wants to dominate. In fact, it takes a constant act of the will (Eph. 2:5), a daily decision (Luke 9:23), or the world will just take over by default (Rom. 8:4-6).”


“Christians? We’re under these same influences from without, but we choose to be influenced by God within (Josh. 24:15). What is required to change this culture? The nature change of those in it.”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to choose the to be attracted to those things that bless, rather than those things that curse; in  Jesus’ Name, amen.”   © Alan E.Sargent
