By Tim Taylor May 26, 2022 - In recent history, we've seen a variety of attempts where Satan and his minions, working through ignorant, evil, or deceived people in this current culture war have hurt the cause of justice as they used unjust methods (ie. lies, deceit, violence, intimidation, etc..) to advance their personal agenda. Nothing has illustrated this better than the short history of BLM's founders.
I warned through a variety of articles years ago about the origins of BLM and the ideology of the three original founders (ie. go my old blog & do a search on BLM). I exposed the godless ideology, Marxism, that was part of the root. Marxists have no problem lying or using deceit and in Marxism there are the few who get wealthy while the rest get to suffer equally. That what godless "communism" produces. Recently Candace Owens tried to interview Patrice to explore some of the seeming financial improprieties of BLM. Click here. Also see BLM's millions unaccounted for as leaders quietly jump ship.
Now, BLM's actions are not my main point, but they do provide an example. In my opinion, they hijacked the movement started by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a Baptist minister, which sought real justice. But they used lies such as, "hands up don't shoot," which was not the truth, as the catalyst for BLM. If you saw their values before the removed them from their site, you'd have also seen they were not for families as God designed it either. They sought to hide their real agenda.
It started with a lie. Then it began to justify violence, destruction which Dr. King would have NEVER agreed with. Hundreds of millions of property damage was done to the communities they were supposed to be fighting for. So much for mercy and truth. That is history now.
This brings us to the truth. The principle! True mercy cannot exist without true justice.
Attempting to extend mercy based upon an untruth, a lie, deceit, lawlessness, or unjust violence is not mercy at all. It is just another injustice.
Mercy and justice can only be rendered in the context of the truth. This is impossible without love.
This is why God's involvement in this equation is so important, for God is love. The foundation of His throne is righteousness and justice. Love sits on a foundation of that which is right and just.
