Attack or Revelation
In light of recent political happenings, I began to think about some of the controversies we have heard through the media. Sometimes news releases are viewed as an attack but, after some thought, I would ask, "Is it an attack or a revelation?" When someone runs for a political office, it is fair to learn as much as possible about their personality, character traits, convictions, and associates to allow the public to determine if the candidate is worthy of a supporting vote. Negative knowledge is often released by an opponent as an attack but this happens with any campaign regardless of party. I will not be so loyal to a party that I cannot objectively make a decision as to what candidate I feel is best. Reveal to me as much as possible for each candidate, and then I will make my decision. What may seem to an attack can often be a revelation. Scripture has told us what is done in secret will be shouted from the house tops. It also says your sin will find you out. If you don't want it revealed, don't do it.
