CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 3-23-19

Facts are Facts

What’s Happening: “It’s finally over. Late yesterday USAG Barr notified Congress that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had submitted his final report and he was reviewing it. Although Trump’s vociferous opposition, the Democrats, called for the report’s immediate and public release, Trump has called the investigation repeatedly a ‘witch hunt.’ Even if the report does not give them what they seek, no doubt the spin-meisters will be at work trying to get the facts to line up with their narrative. Their success may well determine the outcome of the 2020 election…at least that is what they hope. The spin-meisters? They are on both sides (https://www.yahoo.com/news/the-political-battle-over-robert-muellers-report-is-just-beginning-232806437.html.  ‘As Donald Trump said, ‘Let it come out.’ ‘I call on the Trump administration to make special counsel Mueller’s full report public as soon as possible. No one, including the President, is above the law,’ said  Bernie Sanders.”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “I think he’s guilty!”

Biblical Response:  “As the old saying goes: ‘Opinions are like noses – everybody’s got one…’ Trump might be guilty…so might be the DNC, Christopher Steele, Hillary Clinton, etc. We won’t know definitively for some time. Although the temptation is to jump to conclusions according to your political bent, that temptation must be resisted (1 Pet. 5:8-9). The truth can set us free (John 8:32), but only if we are patient enough for the facts to lead where they will.”

“Christians? The question we must ask ourselves: Are we really prepared to enter the political fray with no preconceived conclusions? If not., then our opinions are worthless unless supported by facts…then, I guess they wouldn’t be opinions at all.”  

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, we need your help to demonstrate the necessary patience….we are just too invested in the conclusion; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
