CLARITY- 10-16-18 Testy


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 10-16-18



What’s Happening: “The recent release by Senator Elizabeth Warren of a DNA test that indicates she has somewhere between 1/64th and 1/1024th Indian heritage (approximately the average of anyone from North America – though the testing company would not verify whether from North or South America), has Trump calling her “Pocahontas” again. Even the Cherokee Nation protested, decrying her use of their name for her benefit ( ‘Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong,’ said Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin, Jr.”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “Didn’t she claim ‘minority status’ to gain admission into Harvard?”


Biblical Response:  “Maybe, what’s more certain is that Harvard touted her ‘minority status’ when they added her to the faculty. DNA has become the standard for determining familial identity, even tracing us all back to Adam and Eve…sorry atheists (  Whether Sen. Warren has any more Indian in her than….say…Trump, well, I’ll let you decide.”


“Christians? Tracing our physical lineage back to Adam and Eve, the original parents may be impressive to some, but I’d rather trace my spiritual heritage back to God (Gen. 1:26). I guess that’s the importance of being born again (Jn. 3:3-8).”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us not to “strain at a gnat and swallow a camel” (Matt. 23:24), making a mountain out of a molehill; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
