A Biblical Response to Current Events – 9-26-18
The Last Laugh May be Filled with Tears
What’s Happening: “The unexpected laughter that U.S. President Donald Trump received from the U.N. were reactions to his boast that his improvements were historic. He listed accomplishments in the military, diplomatically, trade and otherwise, touting his administration “in less than two years” had accomplished almost more than any other in this country (https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/world/article/Laughter-at-Trump-among-a-long-line-of-shocking-13257529.php). Trump was surprised by the laughter, but later remarked, ‘Oh it was great, well, that was meant to get some laughter, so it was great,’”.
Knee-Jerk Response: “It wasn’t meant to be a joke…not to him.”
Biblical Response: “I’m not sure what he meant, but if he was expecting that liberal globalist audience to react in any other way, he was ill advised. The Make-America-Great-Again slogan might be acceptable on the campaign trail, but not amongst the leaders of the world…all it evokes from them are the uncomfortable laughs of the jealous. Rather than provoking them to their own greatness, these sovereign nations want less American greatness and more parity.”
“Christians? Christianity is not popular among the non-Christians of the world. Saying that your religion offers the ONLY truth flies in the face of religious syncretism and political correctness. No doubt, claims of Jesus being the only way to God (John 14:6) are met with laughter, too.
“For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life.“ 2 Cor. 2:15-16
Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray: “Heavenly Father, help us to be meek and patient teachers of those who are wrong; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
