CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 4-7-18

 

Draining Camelot

 

What’s Happening:  “The release of the new film (Chappaquiddick)by director John Curran is getting rave reviews and dredges up an old Camelot story many have forgotten, never knew, or were just too young…but it’s still a thorn in the Democrats’ side (https://decider.com/2018/04/06/chappaquiddick-true-story-behind-the-movie/).  It might be good to read this short article before you see the movie…though there are no surprises in this “Swamp 2.0” treatise.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “There must be something to the ‘Kennedy curse.’”

 

Biblical Response:  “No more than the curse that comes with all pride… Sure,  Joseph Kennedy, Jr. (the elder brother of JFK) was killed when his bomber blew up in 1944, President John Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, Robert Kennedy was assassinated in 1968, and five other Kennedy’s before and since have met their Maker by strange means (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/9271425/Timeline-the-Kennedy-Curse.html), but that’s to be expected when your pride and wealth puts a target on your back.”

 

“Christians? We know all about curses and wealth (or we should – Gen. 3:14; Rom. 8:17). Again, the Superheroes mantra: “With great power comes great responsibility.” We are happy to wield the influence, but forget that integrity is the reasonable expectation of the ruled (Tit. 2:7).”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to remember that integrity is impossible within a flawed system…that it is only a new nature (Your Nature) that is capable of that; in  Jesus’ Name, amen.” © Alan E.Sargent
