CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 12-28-18

Ill Eagle

What’s Happening: “Five hours after legal immigrant from Fiji Corporal Ronil Singh of Newman, California police took a Christmas photo with his wife and 5-month-old son, he was brutally murdered at a 1:00 am traffic stop on December 26, allegedly by an illegal.The suspect was pulled over for a DUI stop, and shot Singh who radioed his plight…then died of gunshot wounds at an area hospital. The suspect, considered armed and dangerous, is still at large (https://www.foxnews.com/us/suspect-in-fatal-california-cop-shooting-is-in-us-illegally-authorities-say). ‘This suspect…is in our country illegally. He doesn’t belong here. He is a criminal. We will find him, we will arrest him, we will bring him to justice,’ Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson said.”  

Knee-Jerk Response:  “What a tragic thing to happen the day after Christmas.”

Biblical Response:  Anytime a cop is murdered, it’s a tragedy. And, I agree with you, the timing is even more tragic. So is the fact that the murder was allegedly perpetrated by an illegal…AGAINST A LEGAL! Immigration is in a gray area right now, but there could not be anything more tragic or more ironic.

“Christians? We should be committed to following laws that are on the books…and change those laws with which we disagree (1 Pet 2:13-15). Right now, our country is sick. It rewards those who violate the law, and kills those who respect it. This kind of sickness, if not soon cured, will tear us apart.

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, grant us the courage we need to take on injustice wherever it’s found; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”

CLARITY – 6-23-18 It’s TIME for Truth

 

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 6-23-18

 

It’s TIME for Truth

 

What’s Happening:  “Appearing on this week’s TIME magazine’s cover is a 2-year-old Honduran girl crying up to a photoshopped image of President Trump, but the deception doesn’t stop there. Further investigation reveals she wasn’t separated from the mother who kidnapped her from her unsuspecting father (who is still in Honduras)…and the mother has been deported before (https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/truth-about-girl-on-cover-destroys-time-magazines-credibility-she-was-never-separated/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=CTBreaking&utm_campaign=breaking&utm_content=conservative-tribune). ‘On July 9, 2013, she was transferred to ICE ERO custody. On July 18, 2013, Sanchez was removed to Honduras under expedited removal,’ according to an ICE statement.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Oops!’”

 

Biblical Response:  “That would be my response, too… except many people believe the Fake News the media keeps pumping out. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want what is happening on our southern border any more than the next guy. It’s just that I think the problem is different AND the solution is different. What is the problem if not separating families? The problem is trying to enter the U.S. illegally. The solution: immigration reform. People willingly risk their lives and the lives of their family and try to enter illegally because we have not made it easy for them to do it legally…but dealing in falsehood is not the answer! (John 8:32)”

 

“Christians? Again, what a great opportunity! I haven’t heard of any churches who have opened up their facilities for housing…or any individuals who have opened up their homes (of course that may not be judged newsworthy or fit the media’s narrative). So, if there’s anyone out there who needs warm and dry housing, I have a couch. Oh, by the way….we will be praying over our food, and my wife teaches English at school.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to extend a hand of Christian compassion to those who truly seek asylum…or help us not to claim that moniker as our own; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
