CLARITY – 2-22-19 Deception Strikes Again

Deception Strikes Again

What’s Happening: “Everybody’s heard by now how that Empire’s Jussie Smollett claimed he was a victim of a hate crime, that it was a hoax, set-up to trash Donald Trump by claiming racism and homophobia, but have you heard about how that was his SECOND deception (https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/done-smollett-lied-cops-past-set-brother-take-fall-got-2-years-probation/?ff_source=Email&ff_medium=newsletter-CT&ff_campaign=dailypm&ff_content=conservative-tribune) or that vandals set on fire mistakenly the statue of Gen Lee in Dunn, N.C.(https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/vandals-torch-gen-lee-statue-looks-like-picked-wrong-gen-lee/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=newsletter-CT&utm_campaign=dailypm&utm_content=conservative-tribune), Gen William C. Lee, a local hero of WWII?! Talk about Fake News! How about Fake Hoax? (more like uneducated vandalism!)”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “It might be a deception, but it doesn’t change the fact that there’s racism in America!”

Biblical Response:  “Unfortunately there is…but we can’t deal with that heinous aberration by swatting at flies…especially FALSE flies. Truth is sometimes hard enough to face, but when you confuse the issue with deception, it’s nigh impossible!”

“Christians? If truth sets free (John 8:32), deception enslaves, and there are many that just want to distract us into fighting battles that are not even real (2 John 7).”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, we need Your discernment so we don’t waste precious resources putting out false fires…the real ones are daunting enough; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”

CLARITY – 6-28-18 Stranger Things Have Happened…But Not Much!

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 6-28-18

 

Stranger Things Have Happened…But Not Much!

 

What’s Happening:  “D.C. and the nation are all abuzz with the retirement of Justice Kennedy from SCOTUS, the possible replacement by Kavanaugh…or Lee…or Fox Commentator, Judge Jeanine (just kidding?). Regardless of the pick, the nature of the court is likely to change (https://www.yahoo.com/news/appellate-judge-d-c-circuit-seen-early-favorite-trumps-supreme-court-shortlist-203121934.html). ‘Donald Trump Jr. retweeted a post about her as a possible nominee, adding ‘This would be pretty awesome,’ but with emoticons suggesting he meant it as a joke, ’ says an article by Chris Wilson of Yahoo News.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Didn’t the Republicans want Obama to wait until after the election to replace Scalia? Aren’t we also coming up on an election?”

 

Biblical Response:  “Yes, but this is a midterm election, not a Presidential one. Besides, with as many Democratic Senators as are up for re-election in states carried by Trump (many by double digits), there is not likely to be a change in the confirmation results. No doubt, if the President sticks with the 25 from which Gorsuch was chosen (and he said he would), the next justice is likely to make the court more conservative. In the tasty words of Barack Hussein Obama, ‘Elections have consequences.’ I’m sorry if my gloat is showing.”

 

“Christians? 56 million souls (roughly the number of abortions since Roe v. Wade) cry out for change (John 10:10).”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help President Trump to choose wisely and our Senate to sound off resolutely; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
