CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 4-4-19

Space Invaders

What’s Happening: “More women have come forward (two yesterday – to date, that makes four – Lucy Flores, Caitlyn Caruso, D. J. Hill, and Amy Lappos) to make claims that former VP and undeclared front-runner for the Democrat nomination for President in the 2020 election, invaded their space with inappropriate physical gestures…from laying a hand on a thigh, to smelling hair followed by a slow head-kiss, to rubbing noses, etc. (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/04/02/joe-biden-donald-trump-cracks-jokes-new-accusers-come-forward/3347778002/). ‘In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once – never – did I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention,’ said Joe Biden, Sunday.”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “His opponents are just taking potshots at an innocent man…”

Biblical Response:  “Probably…and ‘if you can’t stand the heat you should get out of the kitchen’….which is exactly what Bernie, Warren and Kamala want. Still, in this #MeToo-era, there is little room for ‘innocent’ gestures. What may be Biden’s common mannerisms are apparently not welcomed by all. Maybe his explanation statement above, while not an actual apology, may suffice…maybe not. Time alone will tell..”

“Christians? We’re a huggy bunch, too. And it’s not generally wrong to show innocent affection (Rom. 16:16; 1 Cor. 16:20). However, one of the fruit of the Spirit is self-control (Gal. 5:22). Perhaps, a little more sensitivity to the reception of our affectionate gestures is in order.”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to steer clear of the wrong signals we could be unwittingly sending; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”

CLARITY – 5-21-18 The Truth Will Make You Free

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 5-21-18

 

The Truth Will Make You Free

 

What’s Happening:  “Truly a bombshell was lobbed the other day and the media is scrambling to get all the facts. It turns out that the FBI and the CIA may have been spying on the Trump campaign for political purposes…and the mole they planted has done it before (https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/anti-trump-campaign-spy-exposed/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=CTBreaking&utm_campaign=breaking&utm_content=conservative-tribune). The spy: Stefan Halper.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “This may be bigger than Watergate!”

 

Biblical Response:  “Yeah, it might…the best thing is to let it play out and see what reality and the truth will reveal. One advantage the media has…the truth always gets found out. There may be an unwillingness by the media to say things that don’t fit their narrative, but their desire for viewership and ratings always trumps (pun unintended) their pursuit of a liberal agenda. It’s almost as if the truth had its own inexorable inevitable agenda…and it does.”

 

“Christians? The Word says: “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

(John 8:32 KJV). Sure, their is Fake News, but the only reason we know it’s fake is the truth was finally revealed. I’m not saying we should just sit back and let a lie be believed, but we need to take confidence in the fact that the truth will always out. How long we allow a lie to masquerade as the truth…well, that’s sometimes up to us.”
