A Biblical Response to Current Events – 4-27-18

 

The Last Laugh

 

What’s Happening:  “Bill Cosby, famed comedian, and dubbed ‘America’s Dad’ for his work on the Cosby Show in the 80’s (as a Doctor…his wife posed as an attorney), was found guilty on three counts of aggravated sexual assault yesterday, with a potential of serving 30 years. Cosby, now 80, claims he’s innocent and will appeal the verdict which took the jury 14 hours (https://www.westernjournal.com/bill-cosby-found-guilty-of-sexual-assault/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=newsletter-WJ&utm_campaign=dailyam&utm_content=western-journal). Making closing arguments, Special Prosecutor Kristen Feden said, ‘She’s not the con. He is.’”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Give the guy a break…he’s eighty and way beyond being a threat to anyone!”

 

Biblical Response:  “True enough….that’s why the judge will probably have the three 10-year terms served concurrently, not consecutively. Still, as much as he was enjoyed by audiences, he was NOT enjoyed by the victims of his assaults and the jury did convict him on all three charges. The higher the profile of a celebrity, the more the public needs to hold him accountable. They sure enjoy the benefits (economically, etc.) of their notoriety. ”

 

“Christians? He’s probably not joking now…and he shouldn’t. He may have escaped earthly accountability on most of the crimes, but there is no statute of limitations in heaven (hopefully he’ll accept Christ’s payment-in-full on the cross – of course, he’d have to admit to the crimes first [1 John 1:9]).”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help all those women who were his victims get beyond their experiences and help us all to realize: ‘there, but for the grace of God, go we;’in  Jesus’ Name, amen.” © Alan E.Sargent
