CNN Headline news continued to cover the story yesterday about the uproar in Pakistan regarding "the desecration of the Qu'ran." All I could think was, "If someone or some group 'desecrated' the Bible, I have all the confidence in heaven & earth that God's arm is not too short to take care of the matter Himself. He certainly does not need help in recompensing any human error -- whether it is accidental through ignorance or blatant through willfulness."
Whether the story had any truth in it is not really the issue anymore after witnessing the response from the Muslims. What ensued afterwards was hardly the kind of response that would come from a living, Almighty God. It was most definitely a flesh-driven response and costed some folks their lives. And for no reason at all really. Except that Ishmael's seed follows after Ishmael, "And he will be a wild man; his hand [will be] against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren." (Genesis 16:12)
When people profane/desecrate/pollute/defile the holy things of God, including Him, then this is what He says about it: "Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD. " (Ezekiel 22:31)
So what's the fuss really all about? God will take care of what is important to Him.
