Ferguson (Biblical Perspective)

Here is what I know. There are a ton of victims in this situation. People who will not have the life they once had, and several people who are not alive anymore. That is what is sad. 
Legal Justice does not change what happened nor does it ease the pain of these life altering incidences. Anyone who believes Indictment will help a hurting family find peace believes more in the authority of the state than the authority of God.
Now, I desire greatly for legal justice to come about. Did that happen? No clue! There is no way of knowing. All of the "facts" are so cloudy, no one with the internet or newspaper or gossip can make a legitimate judgment on this situation.
That being said, there are mobs and rioting. Guns being fired. More lives being taken. So, has justice been served. Not at all. The mobs were going to riot no matter what the verdict was. A team wins the super bowl/world series/world cup and people begin to act primal, a team loses same outcome. This is because they worship something or someone other than the god of love. So, all we can do is sit at home and deal with our hearts.
Here is the solution (that will unfortunately not come about today in ferguson it appears) compare yourself to a holy and perfect God. When you stand before him, you are unable make decisions of judgement before him because you, in your heart, have the same indictments as man who has killed an innocent teen or a man who attempted to maliciously attack an officer of the law. Michael Brown, Officer Wilson, Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman will all stand before God. So will you and so will I. There will be no talk of state or federal justice. Only, "My son died for you and your sins. What did you do about that?" Simply, The people of Ferguson have decided justice is God and so has most of our nation. We believe life should be fair. We live in a nation of spiritual communism, "Everyone should be afforded eternal life cause we're people." This simply is not the case. 

My prayers are for salvation, peace and that Michael Brown and the rest who have lost their lives seeking peace received grace when standing before our Holy God.
