A Biblical Response to Current Events – 10-19-18

A Sacred Trust

 

What’s Happening: “Children are once again being manipulated into terrorism  by the IRGC (Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps) an Associated Press reporter charges. Using targets of U.S. Presidents for practice, children, some as young as 12, are being formed into units to fight along IRGC units. This seems to be in response to sanctions imposed by Trump since the U.S. pulled out of the Nuclear Deal that was joined by Obama in 2015 (https://www.foxnews.com/us/us-targets-network-backing-irans-use-of-child-soldiers). Iranian and Afghan children are then being sent to Syria to fight.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “No youths of that age can be held responsible for their actions.”

 

Biblical Response:  “I agree…but their targets are just as dead. Talk about PTSD! Adults often can’t handle the atrocities of war…imagine these atrocities in the mind of a child! No amount of counseling or therapy will retrieve some…this is a tragedy of epic proportions! Children are supposed to be a sacred trust (Prov. 22:6). What if he’s trained to kill?”

 

“Christians? Children  are supposed to be the hope of the future (look up and read the previous scripture). The ability to train and motivate a child comes with a certain amount of responsibility. There’s bound to be a special hot place in hell for those who violate this trust.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, let us consider the most impressionable among us as the  sacred trust they are; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
