Judging Righteous Judgement

The Ford v. Kavanaugh hearing has dominated the news recently, and for good reason.  We don’t want someone who flaunts the law on the US Supreme Court.  It is possible, though, that the reason the charge was brought forth in the first place is not because of any wrong doing, but because of the fear by some panelists that the judge may vote to overturn the Roe V. Wade decision on abortion, among other things. Political agendas should be left out of the proceedings.  However, if there is truth to Dr. Ford’s claim, then President Trump should withdraw his nomination of Kavanaugh.  I haven’t followed all of the hearings, but certain things have caught my attention.  I am not going to judge either party, nor am I going to express a determination.  That’s for the panelists to decide.  The FBI won’t make a determination, either.  That’s not their place in the justice system.  They will only report the facts as best they can determine them.  That is what they do, and they do it very well.  In fairness to both parties, the facts need to be determined as best possible.  My position here is to bring out some of the biblical issues that show up in this conformation hearing.  There are others, but I will mention those that seem to be the most relevant.

Pilate asked Jesus, “What is truth?” then walked away before Christ could answer.  He really didn’t want to hear the truth.  And, as a society, we don’t want to hear the truth either.  If we did,  churches would not be closing at the rate they do.  I’m not certain that all the panelists want to hear the truth.  I am suspicious that someone some want to undermine Judge Kavanaugh’s appointment for political reasons, and they feel that an attack on his character  is the best way to accomplish their agenda.

Let’s look at both sides.  First, Dr. Fords claim was from a “secret” witness.  Anyone can claim to have a witness or claimant that they won’t reveal.  Then she was named, but wasn’t going to testify before the panel.  That didn’t fly, either.  Then when she did testify, there was no hard evidence, and Judge Kavanaugh and his friends categorically denied that the event even happened.  Then, when it looked like the panelists  seemed to be leaning in favor of the judge, two more unsubstantiated claims were brought forth, one of whom said only that Kavanaugh was at a party in which she was sexually assaulted.  She did not say that the judge took part.  He may not have even known what was happening, if in fact anything did happen.  None of the claims, as they stand now, are credible.  This may be due to a lack of hard evidence, and the passage of time.  Or, it may be because nothing really happened, and that the charges are false.

On the other hand, Kavanaugh claims that he did not assault anyone at any time.  Nothing ever happened.  And it’s impossible to prove a negative, there is no proof of something that doesn’t exist.  At the same time, he does not want an FBI investigation, which is suspicious to my mind.  If he is completely innocent as he claims, why would he not want an investigation by the organization that can best determine the facts?  That makes me wonder about the truthfulness of his denials.  But no determination is possible from news reports, which are biased to some extent, and don’t have the space or time to completely report all the proceedings.  And, making a determination is not my issue here.

Certainly sexual assault is a horrible crime.  I do not want to minimize the pain an suffering of assault victims.  It will effect their lives forever. Rapes and other sexual assaults have broken up marriages, and kept other women from ever marrying.  It harms all family members in serious ways.  And, I’m not speaking from either party’s camp, either.  If Judge Kavanaugh did attack Dr. Ford when they were in college, then he should be held accountable.  That said, the sexual assault victims who are attacking panelists who seem to be siding with Kavanaugh are out of line.  That is wrong,  In this country a person is innocent until proven guilty, and Kavanaugh has not been proven to be guilty of anything yet.  He may be in the future, I don’t know.  The point is that the true pain and suffering these women have on a daily basis is not an innocent person’s fault.  It doesn’t minimize their suffering.  No one is trying in insult them or to belittle their experience or how they feel.  It is not about them.  They are projecting their pain onto Kavanaugh when he has not been adjudicated as guilty.  They are venting their pain at his expense, and the expense of the panelists that seem to be leaning in favor of confirming him to the Supreme Court.  I’m sure they would change their mind about confirming him if the FBI determines that credible evidence exists that Dr. Ford’s claims are true.

Part of this hearing is all of this country’s fault, and it is repeated throughout the world in this age.  And it’s not a new problem.  Isaiah wrote that judgement was turned backward, and justice stood far off and equity could not stand as a result (Isaiah 59:14).  We as a country have turned our backs on God and His word.  Mercy and judgement are the habitation of God’s throne and are met together (Psalm 85:10).  mercy and truth came by Jesus Christ, and men killed Him for telling them the truth because they did not want to hear the truth (John 8:40-8:45).  The public in general does not want to live by God’s word.  It is inconvenient for them because it gets in the way of how they want to live.  The ramifications of our society’s falling away from God is manifested in who we chose as leaders, and the leaders act in predictable ways consistent with the subjective and emotional expectations of those who appointed them-to a point.  Beyond that point they have their own selfish agendas they implement to further their quest for power and wealth at the expense of those who voted them into office.  So ultimately it is the American society’s fault that the Ford v. Kavanaugh hearing is taking place:  Sexual assaults or any other crime are not committed by people who follow the bible.  And Christians do not make false accusations to further political agendas.  It is possible if not probable, that all the disasters befalling this country now are God’s way of telling us to clean up our collective act.  The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and men who hold the truth in unrighteousness (Romans 1:18).  All Christians need to pray that God will reveal the truth in the hearing, which ever side is at fault-and it may very well be that both parties are guilty of something they don’t want revealed.  Pray that the truth will come out and that the panel will judge righteous judgement whatever that may be. And work to help bring this nation back to being a Christian nation.  President Trump claimed that America is great again.  It isn’t, not even close.  But Christians need to work at bringing it back to God, which is the only way we will hav a great nation.  God promises us that if we come back to Him, He will heal out land and bring us back into greatness.  Let’s all start working on being great in God today, because if each of us individually are great in Christ, together we will be great as a nation.  So ultimately, the fate of this nation rests with you and me.
