Daily Bible Nugget #491, John 7:24

The Nugget:

Joh 7:24  Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. 

My Comment:

I made a comment on Facebook just now about a video clip I saw posted, titled “Kavanaugh TORCHES Sen. Feinstein: ‘My Family’s Been Destroyed!’ White House Brief. September 27 at 8:15 pm. Bret Kavanaugh finally got the chance to testify about the uncorroborated sexual assault allegations against him. When he came face-to-face with Sen. Feinstein, there were FIREWORKS.”

Here is what I wrote:

Senator Feinstein literally sat on the letter she received from Dr. Ford (in July) until this critically “opportune moment” in September when it would have the greatest political effect to delay or derail President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.
 
I understand that Senator Feinstein had a one-on-one half-hour interview with Judge Kavanaugh as part of the hearing and confirmation process. Why did she not bring up the existence of the letter she received to Judge Kavanaugh at that time?
 
The allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh are highly suspect because of their timing.
 
They are highly suspect because they lack contemporary evidence to validate them. A sign posted on the door of the security office in the high school where I taught says it all:  “If it is not written, it did not happen.”
 
As an English teacher, I had my students do much writing. Some of my students wrote about very personal and sensitive issues in their lives. I have always kept such matters in strict confidence. But I would think that a girl in high school who suffered the kind of incident claimed by Dr. Ford would have brought the incident to the attention of a trusted teacher or counselor to whom she could now appeal, but no such evidence has appeared to document that this alleged incident ever occurred.
 
The additional allegations from yet more “witnesses” are even more suspect for the same and additional reasons.
 
The political connections and allegiances of all of those making allegations are all from one political party. How is it that not one person advancing such allegations is not from the other major party?
 
Certainly, the Democrats have every reason to prevent Judge Kavanaugh or any other person nominated by President Trump from taking a position on the United States Supreme Court. Democrats are hardly motivated to restore the rule of law as opposed to the rule of men.

Jesus commanded us to “judge righteous judgment” (John 7:24). This means Jesus insists that we follow “due process.” “Due process” is not Kangaroo Court in the public media. It means “righteous judgment” is not agenda driven, or politically driven. “Righteous judgment” involves the presumption of innocence whenever someone is charged with wrongdoing. We commonly speak of this as “Innocent until proven guilty,” with the emphasis upon “proven.” The burden of proof is upon the accuser, not the accused. This principle of law is widely disregarded by some institutions in our government, including the IRS. This principle must be insisted upon. Never vote for a person or a political party that thinks otherwise.
