CLARITY – 3-17-18 With Great Power…


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 3-17-18


With Great Power…


What’s Happening:  “Andrew McCabe, 2nd in command at the FBI, was fired only hours before the deadline to receive his much-vaunted retirement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions – he was following the recommendations of the Inspector General. Accused of deliberately misleading questioners, many times under oath, the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) also recommended the action ( ‘This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally,’ McCabe said.”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “First James Comey (former FBI Director), then Andrew McCabe…what’s the FBI coming to?”


Biblical Response:  “Hopefully integrity and trustworthiness. I mean, everyone hates to see him and his family not receive his long-awaited pension…at the same time, had he been someone much less powerful, he’d have been gone long ago. You can’t not let him go (bad English – good sense). To quote an old equal- justice-under-the-law saying: ‘What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander’ or to quote the superheroes’ mantra: ‘With great power, comes great responsibility.’”


“Christians?  We are not unfamiliar with the requirements of power (Acts 1:8). The sword of justice swings both ways and the very laws we judge by become the laws we live by (Matt. 7:2). Thankfully, just as the Lord knows we are incapable of such integrity, He has made a provision for us (Rom. 5:8). Can’t we just be merciful to him? Yes, but that requires repentance first (Luke 13:3). ”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, we do pray for Andrew’s family…that you will make a provision for them in spite of their breadwinner’s behavior; in  Jesus’ Name, amen.” © Alan E.Sargent
