A Biblical Response to Current Events – 10-9-20
What’s Happening: “Remember the brouhaha over Trump’s unreleased tax returns? Whether it was leaked accidentally or not, it only showed he was wealthy and took every deduction that was legal…who wouldn’t? No revelation there. Joe Biden’s and Kamala Harris’s dodge on whether they are in favor of Supreme Court packing is, however, another matter. In addition to not releasing a list of potential Supreme Court nominees – which Trump keeps requesting – Biden Thursday said he would not reveal his attitude on Supreme Court packing until after the election (https://www.yahoo.com/news/biden-says-announce-position-court-202850704.html). Vice President Pence and Senator Harris conducted a debate Wednesday in which the subject was breached. Quoting from the National Review article that appeared yesterday: ‘The American people deserve a straight answer and if you haven’t figured it out yet, the straight answer is they are going to pack the Supreme Court if they somehow win this election,’ Pence said.”
Knee-Jerk Response: “Are we just supposed to have faith they’ll do the right thing?”
Biblical Response: “Great question. I guess that’s what both of them are expecting. But for a representative government…and neither of them being God…that’s kind of a heavy lift. I mean, it’s one thing to know the end from the beginning (Is. 46:10) and to choose when, how much, and to whom secret things are revealed (Deut. 29:29) if you are God, and quite another if you are not. Calling for faith if you’ve parted the Red Sea and raised the dead may be a little more reasonable than asking for it when you’ve done nothing in the past so miraculous.”
“Christians? Believing by faith may be a necessary ingredient to saving faith (Acts 16:31), but there is nothing written anywhere that says we must vote for someone that won’t reveal how they’ll act if elected.”
Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray: “Heavenly Father, help us to trust You, and anyone who has demonstrated what they’ll do…and trust no one else; in Jesus’ Name, amen.
