CLARITY – 5-21-19 The Myth of Stealth

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events -5-21-19

The Myth of Stealth

What’s Happening: “It might have been a revelation to the Air Force or those marketing the ‘stealth’ F-22s, that the Chinese have claimed to be tracking them on radar for quite some time, but it does not come to some as news. Of course, if you read the entire article in the link it gets pretty technical. Some think it doesn’t matter – that nothing can be done about it anyway (https://nationalinterest.org/blog/buzz/no-cloaking-device-here-f-22-stealth-fighters-can-be-tracked-58632). One U.S. Navy officer  asked, ‘Does the mission require a cloaking device or is it OK if the threat sees it but can’t do anything about it?’”   

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Stealth matters! It’s hard to destroy what you can’t see.”

Biblical Response:  “True. However, it’s a good thing God sees all…there sure needs to be some destruction going on in my life. I’ve been a Christian for almost 50 years…and I still have some areas that need work. As far as weapons systems and technology are concerned, someone will always one-up the latest development. Remember, there is nothing new under the sun (Eccl. 1:9). Whether in proprietary war technology, or the latest new-fangled innovation, there will always be another radar detector that will defeat the latest speed-gun available. Does that mean that we shouldn’t pursue the latest tech? No. Just that we shouldn’t have unreasonable expectations. Nothing on this earth lasts forever (1 Cor. 15:53).”

“Christians? The myth of stealth is true (or it soon will be). However, there is also the myth of the closet. Many are thinking (and depending) on the belief that what is done privately ‘in the closet’ is seen by no one. Nothing could be further from the truth. God was in the closet with you all along (read Ps. 139).”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to be one step (at least) ahead of our enemies, but help us only to depend on You; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
