CLARITY – 9-15-18 It’s Dangerous Alright


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 9-15-18

It’s Dangerous Alright


What’s Happening:  “Former President Barack Hussein Obama, stumping for a Democratic slate of candidates in Ohio, said it would be ‘dangerous’ not to vote in November. Republicans agreed…but want their candidates to be the beneficiaries of an activated electorate ( ‘2016 is over, but President Obama continues to dismiss the millions of voters across Ohio who rejected a continuation of his policies in favor of President Trump’s plan for historic tax cuts, new jobs and soaring economic growth,” Mandi Merritt, Ohio spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee, said.”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “Isn’t it just a shouting match?”


Biblical Response:  “Yeah, or a ‘Tweeting match…and we know who’ll win that. Who turns out, Democrats or Republicans, will likely determine the outcome of the elections in November. And it should. This is what elected representative government is all about. We have to live by the laws these folks legislate. Scary, huh? If your guy or gal is running, then you’d better show up…if you don’t know who’s running and what he or she stands for,,.then don’t complain when inauguration time comes around.”


“Christians? Everybody wants Christian laws, no Christian wants to run. There’s something wrong with this picture. Things don’t get better by themselves. You might actually have to inconvenience yourself. Sacrifice has always been the cost of progress (1 Tim. 2:6).”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to see the danger of inaction…and the blessing of sacrifice; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
