CLARITY – 7-3-18 Finally Revealed

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 7-3-18

 

Finally Revealed

 

What’s Happening:  “We don’t learn till page 203 of the IG Report, and the mainstream media will probably never report it, but the “happenstance” meeting of then Attorney General Janet Lynch and Bill Clinton was actually set up by the FBI and Clinton’s Secret Service detail (https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/fbi-caught-red-handed-set-up-lynch-clinton-tarmac-meeting-according-to-ig-report/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=CTBreaking&utm_campaign=breaking&utm_content=conservative-tribune). Quoting from an article by the Western Journal: ‘The 30-minute meeting on June 27, 2016, came just days before the Department of Justice was set to conclude its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for communication that included classified documents. ”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Is this the smoking gun?”

 

Biblical Response:  “Probably not …unless it’s Trump… or anybody else. It’s strange that there’s a double standard here, but there probably is. Time alone will tell the tale. Truth can set free (John 8:32), but only if you acknowledge it for what it is…”

 

“Christians? Of course, we have to play by the rules…and maybe be satisfied that there’s justice in the end. As one version puts it, ‘Then you will see the difference between God’s treatment of good men and bad, between those who serve him and those who don’t.’ Malachi 3:18 LB) A double standard, however, can be disheartening. To survive this emotionally we just have to know that the truth will be finally revealed…here or there.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to believe for eventual justice, but fight for it today; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”

CLARITY – 4-13-18 A Higher Loyalty

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 4-13-18

 

A Higher Loyalty

 

What’s Happening:  “Although former FBI Director James Comey’s book, A Higher Loyalty, is not due to be released until next week, reviews and quotes are already beginning to appear. Comey tries to explain his actions, conversations he’s had with Obama, Trump and the Hillary Campaign, etc. Who knows what the truth really is? (https://www.yahoo.com/news/whats-james-comeys-book-235458827.html). Comey writes, ‘We are experiencing a dangerous time in our country, with a political environment where basic facts are disputed, fundamental truth is questioned, lying is normalized and unethical behavior is ignored, excused or rewarded.’”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Will we ever really know the truth?”

 

Biblical Response:  “We may already know the truth…but do we know we know the truth?…probably not. Or the question might be raised, ‘Whose truth?’ If you ask Trump, it’s one thing. If you ask Hillary, it’s another. If you ask Comey, it’s still another. (and honestly, they’ve believed their own hype for so long, maybe they can’t even recognize the absolute truth). ”

 

“Christians? Sure, we know there’s ‘A Higher Loyalty.’ God is the higher loyalty and He knows the absolute truth (Jn. 8:32). What is ‘absolute truth?’”

 

“Let me illustrate it this way: There is an argument that ensues between two guys. Both are watching a roofer put on shingles a quarter of a mile away. As he strikes the nail there is a delay in the report of the sound. One guy says to the other, ‘Bet you can’t tell me when he’s striking the nail.’ The other guy argues, turning around, he can even do it without looking.

 

“‘Now’… ‘and now’…timing his ‘now’ with the blows as he hears them. The other guy smiles. ‘You have it all wrong because light travels faster than sound. You think he’s hitting the nail when you hear it, but I can see when the blows really occur.’”

 

“Another guy, who’s been standing nearby pipes up, ‘You’re both wrong. The event actually occurs even sooner than the light reveals.’”

 

“‘Yeah,’ the second guy admits, ‘But you’d have to be in the hammer and in the nail to know that.’”

 

“‘Exactly!’ He exclaims.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us not get too bogged down or deceived by the difference in the perspectives of various witnesses to ‘truth.’ Your absolute truth is all we trust;  in Jesus’ Name, amen.”   © Alan E.Sargent
