Week 20 Day 4
Finding God in the Mysteries of every day
Isaiah 29: 20For the ruthless will come to an end and the scorner will be finished,
Indeed all who are intent on doing evil will be cut off;
21 Who cause a person to be indicted by a word,
And ensnare him who adjudicates at the gate,
And ]defraud the one in the right with ]meaningless arguments.
Is there really any point in what passes for “news coverage” today? It seems to be a gathering of ruthless uninformed and opinionated people with absolutely no moral character or sense of context or continuity. There has always been bias in news reporting. Even the sainted icons of the past were in their own subtle ways trying to accomplish a little “social engineering” through public opinion. Sadly, we have raised several generations of people who, having never heard the tre Word of God have relied on the echoes of what we have very inaccurately believed to be a Christian culture. Even that has gone by the wayside.
Dark, grim, depressing thoughts? No. the answers to the kind of unease these thoughts raise is, as always, to be found in the Word of God.
1.) Proverbs 29:19 Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction.
2.) 2 Timothy 3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people..
3.) 2 Corinthians 6:17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
