Lawlessness Comes From Authority without Accountability

Lawlessness is not when criminals commit crimes. That’s just a lawbreaker, and God already has a system in place for them to be punished.

Lawlessness comes when those who are appointed to keep the law become a law unto themselves and are no longer accountable to the law. Lawless authority is what creates lawlessness in a region. Then God can bring in bigger, or even foreign authorities to that region to establish law.

NFL Player Benjamin Watson takes the LORD’s SIDE with a balanced heartfelt Christ Focused view

Media hypocrites love to hear a one-sided take to generate entertainment and controversy… But people that speak for the Lord bring a 2 edged sword that cuts both ways and causes both sides to repent. But when you take the Lords side and present Jesus as the solution all the sudden there’s “technical issues…” (Notice the anchor wasn’t trying to cut him off, but the studio cut him off anyway.)

He says “It’s a SIN problem, not a SKIN problem.”
He takes the Lord’s side not the black side, the white side, the conservative side, or the liberal side.

This already went viral but it needs to go viral in YOUR City. Spread this wisdom richly and generously:

At some point while I was playing or preparing to play Monday Night Football, the news broke about the Ferguson Decision. After trying to figure out how I felt, I decided to write it down. Here are my thoughts:

I’M ANGRY because the stories of injustice that have been passed down for generations seem to be continuing before our very eyes.

I’M FRUSTRATED, because pop culture, music and movies glorify these types of police citizen altercations and promote an invincible attitude that continues to get young men killed in real life, away from safety movie sets and music studios.

I’M FEARFUL because in the back of my mind I know that although I’m a law abiding citizen I could still be looked upon as a “threat” to those who don’t know me. So I will continue to have to go the extra mile to earn the benefit of the doubt.

I’M EMBARRASSED because the looting, violent protests, and law breaking only confirm, and in the minds of many, validate, the stereotypes and thus the inferior treatment.

I’M SAD, because another young life was lost from his family, the racial divide has widened, a community is in shambles, accusations, insensitivity hurt and hatred are boiling over, and we may never know the truth about what happened that day.

I’M SYMPATHETIC, because I wasn’t there so I don’t know exactly what happened. Maybe Darren Wilson acted within his rights and duty as an officer of the law and killed Michael Brown in self defense like any of us would in the circumstance. Now he has to fear the backlash against himself and his loved ones when he was only doing his job. What a horrible thing to endure. OR maybe he provoked Michael and ignited the series of events that led to him eventually murdering the young man to prove a point.

I’M OFFENDED, because of the insulting comments I’ve seen that are not only insensitive but dismissive to the painful experiences of others.

I’M CONFUSED, because I don’t know why it’s so hard to obey a policeman. You will not win!!! And I don’t know why some policeman abuse their power. Power is a responsibility, not a weapon to brandish and lord over the populace.

I’M INTROSPECTIVE, because sometimes I want to take “our” side without looking at the facts in situations like these. Sometimes I feel like it’s us against them. Sometimes I’m just as prejudiced as people I point fingers at. And that’s not right. How can I look at white skin and make assumptions but not want assumptions made about me? That’s not right.

I’M HOPELESS, because I’ve lived long enough to expect things like this to continue to happen. I’m not surprised and at some point my little children are going to inherit the weight of being a minority and all that it entails.

I’M HOPEFUL, because I know that while we still have race issues in America, we enjoy a much different normal than those of our parents and grandparents. I see it in my personal relationships with teammates, friends and mentors. And it’s a beautiful thing.

I’M ENCOURAGED, because ultimately the problem is not a SKIN problem, it is a SIN problem. SIN is the reason we rebel against authority. SIN is the reason we abuse our authority. SIN is the reason we are racist, prejudiced and lie to cover for our own. SIN is the reason we riot, loot and burn. BUT I’M ENCOURAGED because God has provided a solution for sin through the his son Jesus and with it, a transformed heart and mind. One that’s capable of looking past the outward and seeing what’s truly important in every human being. The cure for the Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice and Eric Garner tragedies is not education or exposure. It’s the Gospel. So, finally, I’M ENCOURAGED because the Gospel gives mankind hope.

Who Is on The Lord’s Side????

Liberals ignore facts. Conservatives ignore context. God ignores nothing and Sees everything. Overcome Evil with Good. ‪#‎ImOntheLordsSide

Don’t be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12

If your soul has been overcome by evil, you have already lost. Win by saying and doing good in Gods sight.

We as members of the Church of Jesus Christ, have to avoid being on the black side, or on the white side, or on the conservative side or on the social justice side. We have to seek God, and see God’s side.

God’s side is a balanced, big perspective view that is saturated in the Scriptures, and filled with the Holy Spirit and Wisdom.

God’s side is not hypocritical, it is consistent with his will and with his purpose. God’s side has no other agenda other than holiness, fruitfulness, and manifesting the kingdom and glory of Jesus Christ on this earth. That is what we have to stand for in this hour.

We gotta be on the Lords side because the level of demonic release is only getting stronger. We have to walk in the power, love, wisdom of the Holy Spirit. It’s our chance to really shine and glorify God if we are up to the challenge of the moment.


Yes, Jesus came the first time not to bring peace, but a sword, but Jesus name is the only thing that should divide us. Carnal issues should not divide us.

We wrestle not against flesh & blood, but principalities and powers. Taking the Lords side is bringing repentance to all men, not picking sides.
