A Biblical Response to Current Events – 6-15-18

 

Majority Report

 

What’s Happening:  “Last evening, on a 62 for, 58 against, 42 abstentions vote, the U. N. failed to reach the two-thirds majority needed for the U.S.-led amendment to also condemn Hamas for lobbing over 100 rockets into Israel. Instead, the resolution to condemn Israel passed by a vote of 120 for, 8 against and 45 abstentions – the vote obviously received much Islamic-nation support had(https://www.yahoo.com/news/latest-palestinians-urge-un-condemn-israel-over-gaza-210331357.html). The draft resolution being considered Wednesday (without the U.S,-led amendment) was proposed by Arab and Islamic countries. ”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “I thought the majority was always right.”

 

Biblical Response:  “This may be an American pipe dream – or maybe it presumes a Christian consensus – in any case, due to the fallen nature of man, society’s recent bent all but assures the majority is wrong. Sad, but true. It was John Adams who said: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” He was right.”

 

“Christians? Oh, we believe in the rule of the majority, WHEN that majority decides anything that lines up with God’s Word (James 1:22). Unredeemed Man is seldom right…and then only by accident. That is why taking God’s Word out of public education only assures anarchy.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, since what we believe (especially the young and impressionable) is primarily the responsibility of the family, bring revival to this land. Help us to be that ‘shining light on a hill’ that is our destiny;in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
