I was enjoying my daily Bible reading recently when one little word made a light bulb of thoughts explode in my mind.
This word has been prominent in the media for weeks to describe the looting, burning and defacing of statutes taking place across the United States. It’s been going on in the lawless city of Portland, Oregon for the past forty-five days.
I was expecting another term in my reading–and that’s what surprised me. I anticipated “anti-Christ” which conjures up visions of an evil world dictator or the “opposite” of Jesus Christ.
Now I’m reminded what the “opposite of Jesus” entails.
