Russell Moore addressed the sacking of the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021 over at The Gospel Coalition. This blog just wants to add the article to the collection of what is being written about the event. This is a brief post encouraging people to read that article.
“Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.”
Does not wisdom call out?
Does not understanding raise her voice?
2 At the highest point along the way,
where the paths meet, she takes her stand;
3 beside the gate leading into the city,
at the entrance, she cries aloud:
4 “To you, O people, I call out;
I raise my voice to all mankind.
5 You who are simple, gain prudence;
you who are foolish, set your hearts on it.
Proverbs 8:1-5 NIV
This is a brief post that I want to get up before bed. Russell Moore from time to time says some interesting and solid things. As an outsider I listen to what he says at times and ponder it. In response to the sacking of the Capitol which President Trump inspired his followers to do, Moore called on the president to resign. You can read more about that in, “Russell Moore of the Southern Baptists Calls on Donald Trump to Resign.” Russell Moore wrote this the same day the United States Capitol fell to invaders since the War of 1812. You can read his thoughts in, “The Gospel in a Democracy Under Assault.”
