CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 9-11-18

Memories

 

What’s Happening:  “Some things you want to forget…like the loss of life on September 11, 2001…nearly 3,000 in the Trade Towers in New York, the Pentagon and on the fields of Pennsylvania. Some things you want to never forget…like the loss of life on September 11, 2001…and we won’t (hence Patriots Day 2018). Of course, life must go on (https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-begins-9-11-anniversary-122410089.html). From the previous article: ‘Shortly before he was due to deliver a speech at Shanksville today, Mr Trump tweeted: ‘17 years since September 11th!’”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Reading the article, sounds like our President may be more concerned with accusations of collusion than remembrance of 9/11.”

 

Biblical Response:  “Maybe,,,but whose fault is that? Trump’s accusers are relentless. They may prove collusion, but to date, they’ve yet to prove any cooperation between the Russians and anybody…except Hillary’s campaign (https://nypost.com/2017/07/05/uncovering-the-russia-ties-of-hillarys-campaign-chief/). Distraction may make it difficult to make any progress.”

 

“Christians? We are called to remember (Deut. 9:7, etc.), but not to wallow (2 Pet. 2:22). We should remember the lessons (and their expense) of the past or, as philosopher George Santayana warns, we’ll be ‘doomed to repeat it.’”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to use the past for perspective, but not be so caught up in it as to be timid about progress; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
