I was in California a week ago and came across two things that makes me wonder about the sanity of the Golden State’s leaders. Worried that Trump is unstable? Don’t throw stones if you call California home. First, the photo on the left. If you’re building a new public facility in California (I saw this at the San Diego airport.) you now have to construct three bathrooms: men, women, and “all-gender.” Sooner or later some special interest group will demand equal potty-time and the politicians will yield and add a fourth bathroom . . . and a fifth, and who knows where it will stop.
But even more absurd is the plan to help minorities achieve financial success. By holding seminars on investments? By educationally empowering the less fortunate to acquire a marketable skill? NO. Politicians in the state of California, which January 1 legalized recreational marijuana, have proposed a plan to train minorities on how to sell weed and become marijuana entrepreneurs. You think I’m joking. I’m not. As the policy proposes, if you live in a black neighborhood, AND you have a prison record (BECAUSE A DRUG CRIME would prevent you from getting a business loan), the state will loan you money INTEREST FREE to set up a POT SHOP. (This is so unbelievable I had to add the capital letters.) And remember you can ONLY get this help if you are black. White potheads need not apply.
African Americans should be outraged. It is their communities which have been most affected by the crime and violence of their neighborhood black drug dealers. And now the law-abiding citizens of the inner city are expected to welcome back these drug thugs who will be given taxpayer money to sell the stuff that destroyed their lives in the first place. We can only shake our heads at this moral insanity and remember the words of Paul in 2 Corinthians 4:4 that the god of this world has blinded the minds of those who do not follow God. The worst of all this isn’t just the absurdity of criminal potheads being paid to sell pot, but the pothead politicians who will make it possible. Everyone who has any part in this whole scheme needs an exorcism, and I’m available.
An encouraging word: Pothead politicians
We all need to hear God’s voice more than we do. Psalm 29:4 says, “The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.” The psalmist goes on in this this chapter to state many ways that God’s voice expresses power, all instances of might and majesty. He ends by saying, “The Lord sits as King forever.” We see here that the key to hearing God’s voice is having an eternal perspective. When we hear the voice of God, especially through His Word, we know that what we receive has eternal significance. God doesn’t speak from the perspective of a few years or even a lifetime. What the Lord speaks is rooted in wisdom from eternity past, and will prevail for eternity future.
