Charlotte / Ruin & Misery
Shortly before 11 p.m., police donned gas masks. Soon, clouds of tear gas bloomed in front of their lines. [reference article below]
Ruin and misery mark the way of man – all men – protestors or police. It is not even worth the time to look for who is to blame in Charlotte. It is just time for all men to repent.
“Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.” “Their feet are swift to shed blood; ruin and misery mark their ways, and the way of peace they do not know.” (Romans 3:14-17)
This is why, in-spite of those in Enumclaw, official and non-official that were trying to stir up persecution I sought to do everything I could to calm the situation. Unfortunately months of such efforts were a mere so-what. Oh that the city of Enumclaw even had a clerk with some wisdom how different things might have been.
The city clerk quieted the crowd and said: “Men of Ephesus, doesn’t all the world know that the city of Ephesus is the guardian of the temple of the great Artemis and of her image, which fell from heaven? (Acts 19:35)
Such is the way of sinful man.
Lesson: The Christian pastors, and their congregations, should have formed a line between the protestors and police laying down their lives on the line. – yeah right.
The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. (John 10:13)
