Just My View
If you live in America and had access to a tv yesterday, then you at least caught a glimpse of the televised hearing that took place involving Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.
Never. in. my. life. have I cared about what’s happening in our nation as much as I do now. I watched the hearing, from beginning to end. If you did, also, then you know how mentally and emotionally exhausting it was (for them and the viewer) as we listened to Christine Blasey Ford share the details that she remembered. I have read both positive and negative comments about her coming forward – especially her timing Positive: Her bravery inspired many other victims to either seek help or tell their story. Negative: It’s a lie. Most comments have suggested that maybe she did suffer a tragic experience, but they didn’t believe there was evidence that her attacker was Kavanaugh.
Although Kavanaugh’s opening statement brought about some criticism, I don’t blame him for being angry or emotional – especially if he is innocent. I’m not saying that I believe he is innocent. Truly, only he and God knows that answer. The positive: His journal/calendar provided a lot of details about that time period. Negative: He seemed hesitant when asked if he had ever drank too much to the point where he wouldn’t remember.
My biggest concern in all of this is that two people had to tell very personal details about their life on national television when it wasn’t necessary. Both families are going through hell. Someone expressed on tv yesterday that the only way to get to the truth was by having a FBI investigation, then why didn’t they ask for it when they first heard about the allegations against Kavanaugh?
Last, I am so thankful that all of my mistakes that I have made – 30 years ago or even today, aren’t put on national tv or social media for everyone to pick apart, argue about, and make judgement.
For all those times I wished I could become someone famous, today – I’m beyond thankful I’m just little ol’ me.
But even so, the reality is – little ol’ me will someday have to face judgment. And so will you. No one will escape it. That’s why it is so urgent that believers share with others that there is a way to be forgiven. We are all sinners. Regardless of what mistakes you’ve made, you can still spend everlasting life with Jesus. Don’t wait…
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
“Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart. At that time each will receive their praise from God.” 1 Corinthians 4:5
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” 2 Corinithians 5:10
