CLARITY – 1-21-20 ‘Soon’ Exposed

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 1-21-20

‘Soon’ Exposed

What’s Happening: “An apology by a TV Host (Host of  state TV’s Good Morning Iran, Gebareh Jabarri)  posted on instagram Monday (the post has since been deleted) for lying about the downing of a Ukrainian jetliner, killing all 176 on board. ‘Apologies for lying to you for 13 years. It was very hard for me to believe our people have been killed, forgive me for believing this late.’ Others have apologized for believing the lies of the regime, including Taraneh Alidoosti star of the popular 2016 movie, A Salesman (https://www.yahoo.com/news/sorry-lying-13-years-iranian-201452298.html). ‘We are not citizens, we are captives, millions of captives,’ she wrote (this post, too, has been deleted.”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Didn’t the Iranian regime initially say they had nothing to do with the downing?”

Biblical Response:  “Yep…guess their lie was ‘soon exposed’ (Prov. 12:19 LB) – ‘Truth stands the test of time; lies are soon exposed.’) Of  course, it can be argued that 13 years is not soon (which is why it’s in quotes in today’s title). But then, nobody likes to believe their own government is corrupt, least of all left-leaning media types. The first part of the verse refers to the eternal nature of truth…the last part: the temporal nature of lies. That’s why the prevailing truth always wins out..,.eventually…and why we have to learn patience.”

“Christians? Oh, we believe in truth triumphing in the end…and that truth is a person (John 14:6). And He will set us free (John 8:32).” 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to know the truth and be set free by it; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”

CLARITY – 3-25-19 Talk About Transparency!

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 3-25-19

Talk About Transparency!

What’s Happening: “At least two things of newsworthy magnitude happened yesterday, both expected: 1) AG Rob Barr released his letter to Congress summarizing Mueller’s report and concluded no collusion and insufficient evidence for obstruction AND 2) the Democrats in Congress called for the total report to be made public (actually, that was a bipartisan call – Congress voted 423-0). The Republicans took a victory lap with calls for resignations and apologies; the Democrats said it wasn’t over – no surprise anywhere (https://www.cbsnews.com/live-news/mueller-report-trump-russia-investigation-william-barr-summary-latest-updates-today-2019-03-25/). ‘While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him,’ Mueller’s report said”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Now that the report is submitted, are we any farther along?’

Biblical Response:  “Well, at least that particular drain on the taxpayer’s dollars is shut…and it was a multimillion-dollar drain, taking 1 year, 10 months, and 6 days! As far as the controversy about the 2016 election is concerned, we have not gotten far: the Dems think Trump stole the election…the Repubs don’t (although nobody but the Kremlin denies there were two dozen Russians indicted for trying to influence the election). Is it over? HARDLY! Will it fade? Probably. When the media’s ratings start going down because the American public bores of finger-pointing, other more newsworthy events will push the ‘witch hunt’ aside…at least until the 2020 election.”

“Christians? True transparency should be expected. There is no such thing as things being done ‘in the closet.’ God is omnipresent (Ps. 139). He was in the closet all along (Matt. 10:27).”  

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, give us the grace to accept the truth…even if we don’t like what it is; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
