The issue or conflict of the week

Police brutality, the Islamic State, prejudice, budget deficit, amnesty for illegals, border security, government spying, IRS, support for Islam, land confiscation, climate change or global warming, income inequality, marriage, socialist healthcare, Iran, Israel, Russia, China, religious freedom, bullying, school lunches, and I am sure there are a few more. These are issues that kept coming before the public during 2014. They are all things that the occupant of the Oval Office has commented on or have had direct involvement in. In every case, there has been no solution by anyone, but the problem has been pointed out and the people, not leadership, have been blamed. How much blame can you take?

In most every instance of the issue of the week, the “president” makes a comment. He observes the obvious, restates it, and has his press secretary and members of his administration, support his statements. There is a lot of blame passed around, but not much responsibility taken. It’s always somebody’s fault or something’s fault. The deficit continues to rise because the government is spending more than it is taking in, but the people need to “invest” more in their government. Congress is doing nothing on illegal immigration, so the “president” justifies taking the law into his own hands. We have to stop the Syrian dictator, so we fund “moderate” terrorists. Kids are getting fat, so they must be fed less at school.

Leaders are pointing out the problems, but they have little, if nothing, to do about solving them. The news media excuses incompetence and allows continued ramblings about the problems, but never reports the cause and effect. There are dozens of news analysts talking 24-7, but very few ever place blame or demand accountability. Everybody just seems to want to point out the issue or conflict of the week, but there is never any solution. No one wants to call these people out when they lie. There is just no accountability. I am still getting emails from House Speaker John Boehner thanking me for my support and asking me to follow him on Facebook when I have specifically taken him to task on several issues.

We as Christians seem to want accountability. But herein is the problem. We are not holding ourselves, our pastors, the church accountable to the doctrine of God’s word. This is the real conflict or issue. And it seems to reoccur each week. As in 1 Peter 4:17, “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God.” However, is not what Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 4:3,4 true? “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto myths.” You see, it starts with us because we are the ones who know the truth. Don’t become weary of doing what is right, or demanding and expecting accountability.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
