It’s All About Motive

 

What’s Happening:  “The Justice Department (and the Commerce Dept;) has suggested a citizenship question on the 2020 U.S. Census, and immigrant communities, already suspicious about the administration, are up in arms about it (especially the state of California’s AG) (https://www.yahoo.com/news/commerce-department-decides-add-citizenship-024038898.html). ‘“We’re prepared to do what we must to protect California from a deficient Census. Including a citizenship question on the 2020 census is not just a bad idea — it is illegal,’ said CA AG Xavier Becerra.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Won’t identity theft be easier with the information collected by the census?”

 

Biblical Response:  “It would if various federal agencies coordinated. I would never use government and coordinated in the same sentence, Seriously, the real fear is that legislatures will use this information to redistrict according to actual citizenry…which, by the way, is what most state constitutions call for.”

 

“Christians? Care must be taken when you start numbering (2 Sam. 24:2-10). It is not that the Lord doesn’t know everything, including the number of hairs on your head (Matt. 10:30), it’s just that He wants us to be careful we don’t TRUST in numbers (Ps. 44:5-6). It’s all about motive.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, while we might need the information a census will provide to properly govern, help us not to trust in anything but You; in  Jesus’ Name, amen.” © Alan E.Sargent
