CLARITY – 7-10-19 Guilt by Association


A Biblical Response to Current Events -7-10-19

Guilt by Association

What’s Happening: “The brouhaha over Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta’s having negotiated the plea deal of Jeffrey Epstein, a sex trafficker prosecuted by Acosta’s office when he was a Miami prosecutor a decade ago, may end up in Acosta’s resignation…at least if Democrats have their way. New evidence and witnesses may have the case up for re-litigation and Secretary Acosta is all for Epstein getting the justice he deserves (  ‘“The crimes committed by Epstein are horrific, and I am pleased that NY prosecutors are moving forward with a case based on new evidence. With the evidence available more than a decade ago, federal prosecutors insisted that Epstein go to jail, register as a sex offender and put the world on notice that he was a sexual predator. Now that new evidence and additional testimony is available, the NY prosecution offers an important opportunity to more fully bring him to justice,’ Acosta wrote on Twitter.”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Should he resign?”

Biblical Response:  “It depends on to whom you talk. Those who appreciate the job he’s doing as Labor Secretary, and their are Dems and Republicans in this camp, say he should stay. Those who are against everything Trump. say he should go. It remains to be seen who will prevail. As far as guilt by association, that was done  away biblically thousands of years ago (Deut. 24:16). Each should only bear the consequences of his own sin. Of course, it’s a good thing that Jesus’ blood was shed for all our sins!”

“Christians? Oh, we believe in individual accountability. We also believe that our sin will eventually make its way to the surface (Matt. 4:22).. As the old saying goes: you can run, but you can’t hide.” 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to hold accountable those who do wrong and ONLY those who do wrong; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
