CLARITY – 9-17-18 It Remains to be Seen


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 9-17-18

It Remains to be Seen


What’s Happening:  “The high school student (now 51) that alleged sexual harassment by then 17-year-old Kavanaugh at a party in a letter to Congresswoman Dianne Feinstein has now identified herself as Christine Blasey Ford. Nobody seems to know for sure why the letter, received months ago, was just released last week or what the GOP is now going to do ( ‘A lawyer from the White House, when asked if Kavanaugh would now withdraw his nomination, said: ‘“No way, not even a hint of it. If anything, it’s the opposite. If somebody can be brought down by accusations like this, then you, me, every man certainly should be worried. We can all be accused of something.’”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “Be sure your sin will find you out!”


Biblical Response:  “Of course…but that doesn’t answer the question: Did he do it? He swears he didn’t…65 other contemporaries said he didn’t (some who don’t align with him politically) (…whatever happened to the presumption of innocence? I don’t claim to have inside knowledge, but I think it strange that so horrific an incident was not complained about at the time.”


“Christians? We are used to baseless accusations and innuendo. We have fought that battle before (Acts 4:16-17). We must assume the enemy of our souls (satan, the deceiver, old slewfoot, etc.) will not go ‘peacefully into the night.’ He has an agenda, but so do we (John 10:10). However, we have an advantage…the truth (John 8:32).”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to ferret out the truth in a timely manner; help us not to assume anything; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
