Tragically, in the wake of the judgments of the Lord, THIS (The Senator’s rant above) is exactly the type of patterned reaction too many of us American evangelicals have been giving to “ungodly sinners” (1 Peter 4:18) like Elizabeth Warren.
Over the last two years, instead of responding to the judgments of the Lord with humility, weeping and repentance, our family has largely (mostly?) given “those who do not obey the gospel” (again 1 Peter 4:18) the blueprint of rage, malice and protest when replying to the pressure points in our culture.
Let me say this again. The example we’ve largely given to our nation when our liberties have been clipped is rage, malice and protest. Ask 10 unbelievers. That’s been our witness.
Senator Warren’s fury is showing us why the Lord says, “judgment must begin with the house of the Lord…” It begins with us so that we (the sons and daughters of God) can give the ungodly (those who don’t know our God) a spiritual template to follow when the Lord is calling them to respond to His judgments in our world.
Senator Warren won’t be saved by changing her view on Roe vs. Wade. She will be saved if she humbles herself before her Creator and knows that His Son has made repentance an option.
“For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? Now if the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and the sinner appear? Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him…” (1 Peter 4:17-19)
