1-20-2017 Professional Protesting

Proverbs 29:22 NKJV says:An angry man stirs up strife, And a furious man abounds in transgression.” Protestors, frequently, are angry, disgruntled people who are reduced to base language (cussing and profanity!) and debased activity (destroying and stealing others’ property!)  Proverbs 16:28-29 NKJV says: “A perverse man sows strife, And a whisperer separates the best of friends. A violent man entices his neighbor, And leads him in a way that is not good.” The person who hires and pays for professional “protestors” is “perverse!” The enticement is the pay, for which unscrupulous people will do almost anything! Proverbs 1:10 NKJV said: “My son, if sinners entice you, Do not consent.”  They all need Jesus Christ in their lives, for Colossians 3:8 NKJV says: “now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.” Live for Christ, not protesting!
