People seem puzzled when some public figure asserts a thing to be true when it’s patently false — the way Jussie Smollett is doing right now, in the aftermath of the state attorney’s refusal to prosecute him for the 16 charges related to his hate crime hoax.
I have been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one.
(It’s nice — and a little disconcerting — to see that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is livid about this.)
This is what you need to understand: Smollett doesn’t care if you believe that he’s innocent. He doesn’t care about looking ridiculous to you (or me) and neither does the Illinois state attorney.
Smollett knows, however, that there are many others who always will believe him to be innocent.
“You GO Jussie! We know you din do nothin! Stick it to the MAN!”
It’s one of the wiles of Enemy. Those who have no spiritual protection are primed for this chaotic way of thinking.
Jussie and those who believe him no matter what are just travelers moving along on Double-Think Road.
The dismissal of the charges indicates what we’ve long known about Chicago and about government in general: that much of it is corrupt. This should not be a revelation of any note.
Haven’t people been saying this about Chicago machine politics – the entity that produced one Barack Hussein Obama – for decades? (Let’s also not forget that a number of Illinois governors have done time in prison.)
Back to the spiritual perspective, it’s interesting to take what happened yesterday and lean it up against what happened today.
- Yesterday, President Trump — an unjustly accused man — was exonerated of wrong-doing through an above-board process.
- Today, a two-bit actor — a guilty man — had to buy his way out of being prosecuted via shady backroom deals.
How awesome is that?
I think God let’s things like this happen often for His specific purposes. He will take a straight stick and a crooked stick, put them together, and let each observer determine which is which.
And, as observers of God’s orchestration, our job is to take note and applaud.
