A Biblical Response to Current Events – 4-8-19
No Identity Crisis
What’s Happening: “When Brian Rini, 23, claimed he was 8-year-missing/presumed-kidnap-victim Timmothy Pitzen, I’m sure he never figured the ruse would send him to prison, but that’s what he faces. After DNA results and a latent confession, Brian has been charged with making false statements. Then 6-year-old Pitzen’s mom committed suicide in a motel room and left a note saying he would never be found (https://www.yahoo.com/news/timmothy-pitzen-ex-convict-charged-144904614.html).’Law enforcement confronted him with the DNA results, and at that point the person immediately stated that he was not Timmothy Pitzen, and of course law enforcement knew by virtue of the DNA analysis that he was in fact Brian Rini,’ reported US attorney Benjamin Glassman.”
Knee-Jerk Response: “With all the identity theft going around, I hope they throw the book at him.”
Biblical Response: “They probably will….and I can sure understand your sentiment. Was he trying to garner sympathy and notoriety? Whatever his motive, it certainly backfired on him. In this day of DNA, identity is more discoverable than ever. Additionally, if I were a new parent, I’d consider having a GPS chip inserted at birth (maybe turned off to all but certain law enforcement).”
“Christians? Thankfully, God has no identity crisis where we are concerned, He knows each and every one of us….by name! ( John 10:3) He even knows the number of hairs on our head (Matt. 10:30).
Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray: “Heavenly Father, help us to realize You know us…sometimes not good news, but always without doubt; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
