CLARITY – 4-26-18 Pleading the 9th


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 4-26-18


Pleading the 9th


What’s Happening:  “Michael Cohen, the President’s embattled personal attorney who recently had his office raided by the FBI, has stated that he’ll assert his Fifth Amendment right of non-self-incrimination if he testifies on anything concerning porn star Stormy Daniels (–politics.html). In other news, Trump’s nominee to head the VA, Dr. Ronny Jackson, is weighing his options amid allegations from unnamed sources claiming he has a drinking problem and he ‘prescribed’ errantly…couple that with Democrat accusations that he has no experience leading large corporate-like concerns (like the VA’s 300,000+ employees) and the President’s leaving the current status of his nomination up to him and you have some doubts as to his confirmation ( It’s not been a good week for the President.”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “Chaos, chaos everywhere!”


Biblical Response:  “Much to the delight of the Democrats, who are trying to score a “blue wave” upset in the midterm elections. However, the American people may be smarter than to buy into media storms that smack of creativeness and Democrat obstructionism. Truth is not mere allegation  and ‘unnamed sources’ are too-easily obtained and too-often cited to be believable. In fact, I think ‘chaos’ is an old Cold War communist tactic (and the name of an evil nemesis organization in a James Bond movie).”


“Christians? There’ll be no ‘pleading the Fifth’ in heaven (you might plead the 9th [thou shalt not lie – Ex. 20:16]…actually, it’s kind of hard pleading either in front of an all-knowing God). Confession is the biblical alternative (James 5:16).”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to choose leaders that are men and women of integrity who live by what they say and free us from false or baseless accusation; in  Jesus’ Name, amen.” © Alan E.Sargent
