12-28-2015 Professional Protesters

After Paul preached the Gospel in Thessalonica, “the Jews who were not persuaded, becoming envious, took some of the evil men from the marketplace, and gathering a mob, set all the city in an uproar and attacked the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people” (Acts 17:5 NKJV). There are always evil people with nothing else to do but be the beginning of a mob, and “set all the city in an uproar.” The “Black Lives Matter” did exactly that: December 23 they blocked airport roads in Minneapolis and San Francisco, and disrupted Minneapolis’ Mall of America; on December 24, they blocked Chicago’s Magnificent Mile and several stores. Solomon’s wisdom to the beleaguered cities would be: “Cast out the scoffer, and contention will leave; Yes, strife and reproach will cease” (Proverbs 22:10 NKJV).
