CLARITY – 8-17-18 Holey (Not Holy) System


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 8-17-18

Holey (not Holy) System


What’s Happening:  “Omar Abdulsattar Ameen, an Iraqi, 45, was arrested in California and will be extradited to stand trial for an ISIS murder in 2014. He applied and received refugee status in the U.S. the same month as the killing. Further checks have indicated he was also involved in helping plant improvised bombs, transporting militants, kidnapping, illegally soliciting funds, and robbing supply trucks for al-Qaida. Apparently our vetting system was flawed (  ‘The U.S. government identified and implemented additional security screening procedures to enable departments and agencies to more thoroughly review refugee applicants to identify potential threats to public safety and national security, with additional vetting for certain nationals of certain high-risk countries,’ a State Department statement said.”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “Perhaps we need to look a little closer.”


Biblical Response:  “You think?! Of course, that was back when everyone just took people at their word. Duh! Of course a terrorist is going to lie! Maybe our first clue should have come when he wanted refugee status from a certain unmentionable country…didn’t the courts try to strike Trump’s ban down?”


Christians? The vetting process for admission to heaven is rigorous (Rev. 21:26-27)…and we all fall short (Rom. 3:23). Thankfully, our robes have been washed by the blood of the Lamb (Rev. 6 and 7).”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, protect us from those who think they are doing their god a favor by harming us; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
