“Jesus Will Judge You?”

Here is a post about the “Berkeley meltdown”. The focus is a big guy knocking out a little woman. There is also a bit of commentary about a guy wearing a bright yellow “Jesus jacket”, “JESUS will judge you!”

The three fingers that point back from “you” to “me” should give us all cause for a thoughtful pause. It is not a “you” that will be judged; it is a universal “we”.

Acts 17:30-31 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

30 Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, 31 because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.”

So why the reblog? We have a supposedly conservative talk show host in the DC area who positively reveled in the foolishness of the woman who attacked the guy at the Berkeley Trump rally. His point was what else should she have expected. However, the video seems to show that big guy attacking the woman (=> http://fox40.com/2017/04/17/viral-video-appears-to-show-csu-stanislaus-student-punch-woman-in-face-at-berkeley-protest/). She was stupid enough to show up at that rally dressed in black and masked, but she apparently was not crazy enough to go looking for a big guy to punch. The big guy most certainly showed no bravery when he punched her. The silly woman posed no danger to him or anyone else. She just had no good reason for being there; neither did he.

When a guy takes down a foolish woman that way, it is nothing to brag about. All it indicates is a profound failure of civility. At some point we are all weak. At some point we are all strong. So it is that our peace depends upon the strong protecting the weak. That did not happened in that riot.

What these riots at Berkeley show is that the police are not being allowed to do their job. So we have undisciplined people creating a disturbance. The authorities are allowing these people to use the campus as their battleground. The people in charge should be ashamed. The parents of the students at Berkeley may as well find another university for their children.

See, there's this thing called biology...

So, about the Berkeley meltdown, what can I say, there’s just something in the water. Berkeley is infamous for frequent foolishness. There’s something I want to say however about some aspects of the alt-right, especially the red pill Christians. Currently quite a few of them are busy glorifying in the pure pleasure of having gotten to watch this sleezeball punch a woman in the face. I’ve seen so many blog posts, links to the video, just gleeful celebrations of violence.

So when is it okay to punch an unarmed  5’1″ woman in the face? How about never. Yeah, never. Unless your life is actually in danger you’re just being a punk, a thug, a bully.  Nightwind777 actually provides a breath of fresh air denouncing this behavior. So hat tip there. It’s nice to know the whole world hasn’t gone totally mad.

I’m not going to link to Dalrock, to…

  1. Thanks Tom, much appreciated! One thing that really irks me, conservatives currently have an opportunity to present themselves as the voice of reason and sanity in the midst of societal chaos. So when they simply jump into the fray, acting as poorly as foolish teen agers, it ticks me off.

    Christians too, have a rather unprecedented opportunity for ministry right now, so when they totally drop the ball, it also irritates me. These failures to stand up for what’s right, tend to just fuel the opposition, too, to give them a cause to rally around.

      Well, I don’t think that supposedly Conservative talk show host is a Christian. He doesn’t call himself one. Mostly, he is smart, but he is also inflammatory.

      Getting frustrated when Christians drop the ball, particularly when some who call themselves Christian are just misappropriating the label, strikes me as worrying. We are not suppose to do that (but who doesn’t?). In some circles, I guess being a Christian still looks good. Nothing we can do to stop people from pretending.

      When as Christians we minister to non-Christians, it seems best to point people to Jesus and the Bible. We are not perfect, but Jesus and His Word are perfect. If people are willing to do so, they can see that and accept it. They can inspect Word. They can see He is God, but we are not.
