CLARITY – 12-19-19 ‘Another Date That Will Live in Infamy’

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 12-19-19

‘Another Date That Will Live in Infamy’ 

What’s Happening: “The historical and biblical references were everywhere, at least by the Republicans, who stood united with four Dems that would not support the articles (three voted against and Tulsi Gabbard voted ‘present’), as the House voted impeachment yesterday. The references were almost all Republican-cited and included the one above, a reference to another significant December event (https://www.yahoo.com/news/republicans-invoke-jesus-pearl-harbor-trump-impeachment-211048856.html). ‘There’s also, in addition to Christmas being something we celebrate in December, the Boston Tea Party took place in December, but also in December, but also on Dec. 7, 1941, a horrific act happened in the United States, and it’s one that President Roosevelt said this is a date that will live in infamy. Today, Dec. 18, 2019, is another date that will live in infamy,’ said Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.).”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “To quote still again, isn’t this ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ (Shakespeare had a play by that title)?”

Biblical Response:  “Well, I wouldn’t say nothing…though it’s just a charge and the Senate, who will hold the trial and has the power to remove Trump from office, will likely acquit. It may seem useless drama – and the main-stream media has created quite a circus-like atmosphere over it in their pursuit of ratings – although most of the polls show little or no change – and the voters will decide in November of 2020, anyway. The above-linked article says that, ‘When Jesus was falsely accused of treason, Pontius Pilate gave Jesus the opportunity to face his accusers. During that sham trial, Pontius Pilate afforded more rights to Jesus than Democrats afforded this President in this process.’ If you want to read the biblical account, go to Matthew’s Gospel, Chapter 27, Verses 1-26.’”

“Christians? Oh, we believe everybody ought to have their day in court (Ex. 18:16). It’s just that Jesus, for our sake and to fulfill prophecy (Ps. 39:2-9), chose to remain silent.”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, give us discerning hearts and the trust that You will see to it that justice is rendered; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”

Reader:

May I indulge in a little self-promotion? Many of you read CLARITY every day…and you hopefully forward it on to still others. Some even subscribe from the website. Thanks! (One mother wrote that she wanted to subscribe to read it to her children everyday – read away!) However you get CLARITY, would you consider donating on the website? I’m happy to find useful purpose in helping folks stay informed and supplying what I think God has to say on the subjects of the day…still, I want to get this word out to others…which is what I’ll do with your gifts. Thanks in advance.
