Letter to the editor of the
A recent editorial in
the SCD (Feb 4) stated, "What's important right now is
not nasty divisiveness. We can agree to
disagree ... and then move on." What a blessing, Americans have
"freedom of choice" to express opinions without fear - to practice
“tolerance” – to respect the opinions of others without agreeing with
them. How would you like to be President?
would you ask ...? Should we wait until
innocent people are killed? Should we avoid conflict at all costs? What
Saddam strikes first? Should I risk the “wrath” of the people or base
decision on a public poll? Is it
probable that a biological, chemical or nuclear attack will be made by
government (not the people) of
2 Chronicles “if My people (reference is to those who believe in the God of the Old Testament) who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
1 Timothy 2:1, 2 “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings (I assume this means Presidents as well) and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”
Romans “If it is possible, as much as (it) depends on you, live peaceably with all men.”
It’s possible we can disagree while asking for divine guidance for our leaders and for mercy upon our enemies. What if the Bible is true?
