CLARITY – 9-9-19 No ‘Rush to Judgment’


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 9-19-19

No ‘Rush to Judgement’  

What’s Happening: “The ‘Old Gray Lady’ (NYT) may have been caught with her proverbial ‘pants down’ (no sexual pun intended) when she published a later-corrected false report on Justice Brett Kavanaugh as an opinion article Sunday. A book about Kavanaugh’s hearing, The Education of Brett Kavanaugh, co-authored by Kate Kelly, was cited partially. There were immediate calls for impeachment by a half dozen Democrat Presidential contenders including specifically Kamala Harris, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg ( ‘Obviously, it was an oversight. We corrected it as soon as we could, added the information in. There’s an editor’s note explaining that we regret this. It’s unfortunate, and just speaking for Robin and myself, there’s no attempt to conceal information from our readers,’ said Kelly.” 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “This guy just doesn’t seem able to catch a break..”

Biblical Response:  “Nope…and in a political climate where mere accusation is sufficient for reality…well, who is surprised? I’m sure we’ve all done things thirty years ago we regret…and getting drunk is one of Kavanaugh’s. The ‘rush to judgement’ of the New York Times reflects her left-leaning bias and neglect of good journalism standards. Justice Kavanaugh must endure another onslaught on his character, but thankfully, there is a Judge Who is never in a hurry (2 Pet. 3:9). It’s not that He wants to gather more facts, as He knows the end from the beginning (Is 46:10). He’s just giving us more time to repent.”

“Christians? Are we afraid for the truth to come out? No (1 John 4:10)…perhaps a bit embarrassed (Luke 12:3), but not afraid.”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to give people the benefit of the doubt and be quick to forgive… for there, but for the grace of God, go I; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
