Kavanaugh wasn't only one derided for 'tone'

Much has been said about Brett Kavanaugh’s demeanor during his recent hearing. Some have gone as far as to say his testimony should disqualify him for the position of U.S. Supreme Court Justice. But let’s look at another mans’ history. He was hated by many and was esteemed by others. He too, faced a harsh judgment by crowds, so far as they crucified him.

At one point he saw evil in the temple, men selling items for sacrifice for their own profit. His reaction was righteous indignation. He acted out by overturning tables, taking a whip and driving them out. Another time he rebuked the Pharisees and called them names. They too accused him falsely.

Is today any different? It has been predicted from a very worthy book that the day would come when men would call good “evil” and “evil” good. Could we have arrived at this point with what is happening all around us? We have the media to fuel the fire too. Hopefully as a nation we will come to senses soon, before the predicted destruction to come.
