CLARITY – 9-10-18 Anonymous Denials (#NotMe)


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 9-10-18

Anonymous Denials (#NotMe)


What’s Happening:  “The number of official denials is over thirty and will likely go higher as an anonymous memo purported to be from “a senior administration official’ was published by the New York Times (NYT) as an op-ed piece…Trump says the author could be guilty of treason  ( ‘It doesn’t seem to be anybody very high up because everybody very high up has already said, ‘It wasn’t me,’ Trump is reported to have said on Friday. ”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “‘Somebody’ is not nobody…or is it?”


Biblical Response:  “Nobody wants to take credit for what may be eclipsed by news on the Miss America Pageant…or Hurricane Florence…or Obama’s re-entry into the national dialogue…or North Korea’s 70th Anniversary parade, etc. Who knows…and furthermore…who cares? The NYT claims it is accurate (though they may have authored it themselves); the administration denies it, and nobody wants to take credit for it. I’d reprint the alleged ‘memo,’ but I might just be repeating lies.”


“Christians? Sounds like something directly out of the enemy’s playbook (John 10:10). The ‘father of lies’ might be an apropos name (John 8:44)…the memo certainly sows ‘discord among the brethren’ (Acts 15:2), which may have been the enemy’s design all along. We should remember it’s our knowledge of the truth that sets us free (John 8:32). Truth is not arbitrary or  up to opinion.”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to pursue the truth, but not make a mountain (true or not) out of a molehill; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
