CLARITY – 8-23-18 Dumb Like a Fox

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 8-23-18

Dumb Like a Fox

 

What’s Happening:  “Mark Levin, Constitutional scholar, and former Chief of Staff for Attorney General Edwin Meese under President Reagan, said on Fox News Tuesday night (to Sean Hannity): ‘The general counsel for the Clinton mob family, Lanny Davis, he had his client (Michael Cohen) plead guilty to two counts of criminality that don’t exist..’ (https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/levin-trumps-clear-clinton-lawyer-cohen-plead-crimes-dont-exist/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=newsletter-CT&utm_campaign=dailypm&utm_content=conservative-tribune). Trump supporters will hope he’s right…the DNC will hope he’s wrong.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Is that an ‘Oops!’?”

 

Biblical Response:  “Maybe…it might end up in the Supreme Court…which may be altered  by the hearings for Kavanaugh…which begin September 4. I guess we won’t know for a while…though the mainstream press will negative prognosticate, no doubt. Cohen says he has more to say, and Manafort has another trial to go. I guess it all comes down to who wins the midterms.”

 

Christians? Sometimes, there is distraction, but we are called to be wise as serpents and gentle as doves (Matt. 10:16).”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to choose leaders with no hidden agendas…whose promises of transparency are only exceeded by their performance; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”

CLARITY – 7-31-18 Presumption of Guilt

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 7-31-18

 

Presumption of Guilt

 

What’s Happening:  “Today, a hearing will be held at 9:00 am (ET) to determine whether testimony and evidence from Ukraine can be presented in the Paul Manafort trial…voir dire (jury selection) will begin at 10:00 am (ET). Manafort, 69, pled not guilty to these charges (of not paying taxes on unreported offshore accounts) and to charges of money laundering he’ll face in a later trial. He was Trump’s 2016 Presidential campaign manager for three months (https://www.yahoo.com/news/ex-trump-aide-manafort-faces-charges-first-trial-101031671.html’While prosecutors have said they will not present evidence of collusion at this trial, they are seeking to provide details of Manafort’s work in Ukraine, raising the possibility that new information about his Russian connections could emerge,’ quoting Nathan Layne, author of the above article.’”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “What if there’s no evidence of collusion?”

 

Biblical Response:  “So? What if there is? Collusion is not a crime. Obstruction of justice and conspiracy? Well, that’s another story…and collusion is a step closer to those, for sure. Do I, as Trump claims, think it’s a ‘witch hunt’? Probably. I don’t have enough information…and neither do you! As much, politically, you’d like! Oh well, we’ll just have to suspend judgement until the jury comes back.

 

“Christians? Oh, the jury’s already back on us…and we’re all guilty (Rom. 3:23). Thankfully, Someone’s already paid the price (Heb 7:27). In America, we have the ‘presumption of innocence.’ Of course, that’s on unproven charges. All men have the proven charge of some sin…and that’s what is meant by today’s title: ‘Presumption of Guilt.’”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us not try to earn (or lie) about the charge we all have…for which You’ve already paid; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
