CLARITY – 3-31-20 Determining Right and Wrong

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 3-31-20

Determining Right and Wrong

What’s Happening: “In an article written yesterday by the BBC, Singapore has become one of the leading edges of the LGBT fight for normalization  A court with jurisdiction in these matters dismissed a case against a 1938 law that legislated up to two years of incarceration for those who practice consensual same-sex relations. This was seen as a huge setback for the local LGBT community. There are currently 70 nations that outlaw same-sex activity (https://www.yahoo.com/news/singapore-gay-sex-ban-court-155418247.html). Quoting from the  article: ‘The court concluded the law was constitutional because it did not violate articles regarding equality and freedom of speech.’”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “That’s barbaric! They need to get with the 21st Century!”

Biblical Response:  “That sentiment is expressed by much of western world today…but just because the majority says it’s okay, doesn’t make it okay! Law that is written against God’s law about sexuality (Rom. 1:18-27; 1 Cor. 6:9; 1 Tim. 1:10 – and that’s just in the New Testament – the O.T. is rife with examples) is illegitimate law. If anyone is qualified to rule on any creature’s practices, it’s the Creator.”

“I know, it’s the trend, but an erosion from biblical standards, is just that: an erosion. Sure, there are some who say that our Constitution is a ‘living document’…that it should be interpreted by current mores.But our Founders are many originalist jurists who have since passed away since,must be doing cartwheels in their graves!”

“Christians? The passage of scripture that’s at the end of the one referred to in Romans 1 (above) pretty much sums up our position:

‘For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 

and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.’ (Rom 1:27-28 NASU)

“Determining right and wrong is God’s job. Ours is just to make laws that agree with Him.”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to hate the sin, but love the sinner (Prov. 29:27 LB); in Jesus’ Name, amen.”

CLARITY – 5-31-18 Still Offered

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 5-31-18

 

Still Offered

 

What’s Happening:  “Kim Yong Chol, the chairman of the ruling Worker’s Party in North Korea, met with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in New York yesterday, and as such, became the highest ranking DPRK official ever to go to the U.S. They are seeing if the proposed summit between Kim Jong-un and Trump, originally planned for June 12 in Singapore, could still be held (https://www.yahoo.com/news/mike-pompeo-ramps-pressure-north-094842120.html). ‘Between now and if we’re going to have a summit, they’re going to have to make clear what they’re willing to do,’ a State Department official said.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Is the only alternative nuclear war?”

 

Biblical Response:  “No, there is also conventional war…and then there is also the same “strategic patience” of the past that is only a delaying tactic for them to increase their nuclear arsenal to the point where they are a real threat – not just to us, but the region and then world. Hopefully, the DPRK will join the rest of the world and realize the nuclear-war option is unthinkable. Maybe the summit will still go on…at least we should so pray.”

 

“Christians? Thankfully, the peace with God (which is even more desirable than peace here on earth) is still being offered. ..and until we die remains “on the table” (Acts 2:39).”

 

”Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to recognize that peace with You has an expiration date, too; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”   © Alan E.Sargent

Correction:   Yesterday’s CLARITY (Final Justice) reported an assassination of a Russian journalist in Kiev, Ukraine. It now turns out all this was staged as a sting operation by the local police to catch the intended assassin before he could carry out his contracted killing. No one knew of the operation outside of a few. Even Babchenko’s wife did not know at the time. I repeat, Arkady Babchenko is ALIVE!
