CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 2-4-20

Speed and Accuracy

What’s Happening: “In an attempt to speed up the reporting of the results of the Iowa Caucus yesterday,, the app the Democrat Party tasked with the job had some ‘coding issues’ and won’t be announcing results till later today…hopefully. Although Democrat-Socialist, Bernie Sanders seemed to have a lead amongst young people, Joe Biden seemed to garner a third of older caucus-goers. With strong showings from Warren, Yang, and Klobuchar, it’s anybody’s guess (https://www.yahoo.com/news/iowa-caucus-live-updates-democrats-193000930.html) Then there’s ‘MayorCheat’ (Pete Buttigieg) who relies on internal polling: ‘We were looking at the internal numbers that we had and beginning to realize that something extraordinary had happened last night…”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Is anybody outside of Iowa really paying any attention?’

Biblical Response:  “I don’t know…maybe not. One thing’s for sure: Nobody really knows. Sometimes, as the old saying goes, ‘haste makes waste.’ Proverbs lends us a little of its wisdom when it reveals:

“‘Truth stands the test of time. lies are soon exposed.’ (Prov. 12:19)”

“Many candidates might prefer perception over reality, but, thankfully, voter rolls and tallying are accurate…if slow.  Rule by a Constitutional Republic may not be what many would like (some, like Hillary Clinton, want to point to a popular vote, but it’s the Electoral College that counts) but it’s what our Founders gave us.” 

 “Christians? We believe in qualified self-determinism…our Founders also believed in a Christian Consensus…rule by the majority only works when that majority bends its knees to Christ. If Jesus is not Lord OF all, He’s not Lord AT all.’” 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to ultimately submit to You…and to those who’ve submitted to Your Lordship: in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
