CLARITY – 8-11-18 Pouting and Unhinged


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 8-11-18


Pouting and Unhinged


What’s Happening:  “The GOP has started running an ad that some think should be run until 2020. They say the left is unhinged. You watch and you be the judge ( ‘Trump isn’t on the ballot, but sanity is,’ says an article by Cillian Zeal.”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “It’s disgraceful…and scary!”


Biblical Response:  “Sadly, I couldn’t have said it better…kind of reminds me of Gov. Wallace in Alabama in 1963. The far left and the far right are both capable of violence when they take matters into their own hands. The cure (for those who think a middle path is the cure) is not compromise. We could ask Henry Clay (1850s) if he were around. Perhaps bloodshed is inevitable…if the Civil War is instructive. Obviously it isn’t…or we wouldn’t be here.”


Christians? Oh, we believe in the inevitability of bloodshed…just His, not our own (Rom. 3:25). His blood-bought peace needs to be at the forefront of our minds…not the violence we feel ‘they’ deserve.”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to realize all the violence has already been expended so that we might have peace; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
