Verse of the Day
Casting all your care upon him\; for he careth for you.
1 Peter 5:7/KJV

Psalm of the Day
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.
Proverbs 3:13-15/KJV

New Internation Version

Circumstantial Evidence

Circumstantial Evidence

I am a news junky! I have to have a live feed going twenty-four hours a day seven days a week. I do confess that I can't stomach all of the news I see. All things political, foreign, and life influencing I can stand, but it's the pop culture updates and endless following of court cases involving potential crimes that turn me off. Is that kind of information really worth wasting my brain space for? I know why they continually show it though. Circumstantial evidence sells. The facts surrounding many of the cases we have recently experienced in the news, Michael Jackson, Scott Peterson, Terri Schiavo, etc., are often kept from the public and the press in order not to "taint the jury pool". The media then makes up for the lack of real information by parading a series of experts and pundits in front of the camera to speculate about what is being said and what the outcome might be. As a result, we find it appalling when the verdict is delivered and it didn't go the way we expected. The reality is it's our fault we get disappointed. We are the ones that listen to all the circumstantial evidence without trying to get to the bottom of the case and reading the court transcripts as well as digging a little deeper to find out what is really going on. We accepted the circumstantial evidence. It's probably not that bad that we get duped by the media on the cases like I mentioned above, but what concerns me is that it is becoming the mentality of a whole generation that accepts circumstantial evidence. It is even affecting the people that need no circumstantial evidence to solve a case. It's affecting people who have at there disposal the ultimate source of hard-core evidence, people who consider themselves to be the followers of Jesus Christ. Here's my case in point. Have you ever heard Christ- followers make the following statements? "I'm having such a bad day. I wonder what I did wrong?" "Why would God let me get into this mess?" "I keep praying about it, but he just doesn't seem to be listening." "Don't say that. You're in church." And my favorite, "God, Please be with me today." These are all classic misconceptions that are the result of Christ-followers accepting the circumstantial evidence that a pastor, friend, parent, co-worker, or worst of all, feeling offered about who God is. It's time to quit accepting the circumstantial evidence provided by unreliable sources and dig into the source for ourselves. Open the Bible and read! Circumstantial evidence barely holds up in a court of law, it certainly has no place in the lives of those of us who claim to worship the Creator and Truth.

I agree on that ! Those that profess to be christians today. Need to open up their Bible and Study the Word of God. The look at their lives. What is in their lives that is not in the Bible.
