A Biblical Response to Current Events – 4-20-18

 

Legal Maneuvering

 

What’s Happening:  “In a surprise announcement yesterday, the administration said former Mayor of New York and United States attorney, Rudy Giuliani, will be joining Sekulow and Cobb on the President’s legal team. Administration officials hope he will bring Bob Mueller’s distracting investigation to a close (https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/developing-giuliani-takes-new-unexpected-place-on-trump-team/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=newsletter-CT&utm_campaign=dailypm&utm_content=conservative-tribunehttps://www.westernjournal.com/ct/developing-giuliani-takes-new-unexpected-place-on-trump-team/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=newsletter-CT&utm_campaign=dailypm&utm_content=conservative-tribune). One of the President’s lawyers, Jay Sekulow,  made the announcement,”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Finally…now maybe these knuckleheads can get something done!.”

 

Biblical Response:  “Probably not…and I identify with the frustration. BTW, you (and the rest of the electorate) put these “knuckleheads” in office. To say the Russian probe has been a distraction for this administration might be an understatement. Still Congress has been reluctant to do anything more that posture partisanly. Meanwhile, the very agenda that most of America elected Trump to do languishes.”

 

“Christians? We can’t lay all the blame elsewhere. Unless we pray, the swamp doesn’t get drained…or it drains only to reveal a secular humanism which is a worse fate (Hosea 8:7).”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, we need Your Holy Spirit to help us navigate from where we are to where You want us to be; in  Jesus’ Name, amen.” © Alan E.Sargent

CLARITY – 2-20-18 Who’s Indicted…Who’s Not

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 2-20-18

 

Who’s Indicted…Who’s Not

What’s Happening:  “Announced by the Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller just indicted 13 Russians and 3 Russian entities for their involvement trying to influence the 2016 elections. Neither Trump, nor any of his campaign staff have been indicted. We can’t say whether or not Mueller s done with the investigation (https://www.npr.org/2018/02/17/586825413/the-russia-investigations-reading-into-mueller-s-latest-indictments). Although President Trump claims this vindicates him, the investigation is likely to continue.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “There are a lot of people who think this will be bigger than Watergate.”

 

Biblical Response:  “And they might be right, but to date no one has proven there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. Did the Russians try to meddle in our elections? Probably, though there is no indication they were successful. (But they’ve tried in every election – what we need to be wary of are the protests they have financed since the election). Is Trump out of the woods? Not yet (at least if the Trump-haters have anything to say).”

 

“Christians? Truth is often discoverable…but not often convenient. We are for the truth (John 8:32), but also for the release of the truth in a slow and discreet manner. We’d probably all have apoplexy if everything God knows were revealed in an instant. I’m for telling what needs to be told…WHEN IT NEEDS TO BE TOLD. Good advice for the eternal…and the temporal.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, please consider the frailty of our nature, the excitability of our emotions, and our true need to know when revealing the truth; in  Jesus’ Name, amen.”   © Alan E.Sargent
