God let down His protecting hedge around Job and let Satan put him to the ultimate test of suffering and loss. That too was an Evil Miracle on one side of the page, but on the other side, it served God's purpose in the lives of Job and those around him. As Joseph, in Egypt, said to his brothers, "But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive." Gen.50:20. Which is to say, ".... all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Rom.8:28. But similarly, all things work together for bad to whose who do not love God. We must look beyond all of the temporal events of life and see God in absolute control ... for His own purposes.
As Niebuhr prayed, "God grant me the serenity to live with the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. "

OBAMA: ‘THERE’S LITTLE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COMMUNISM AND CAPITALISM’
"Just choose from what works"
President Obama has stoked controversy after he suggested to an audience of Argentinian youth that there was no great difference between communism and capitalism and that they should just “choose from what works”.
Obama responded to a question about nonprofit community organizations and the necessity of attracting funding from both the public and private sectors. “So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate,” Obama said.
“Those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works. You don’t have to worry about whether it really fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory. You should just decide what works,” he added. Obama went on to praise Cuba’s socialist system under dictator Raúl Castro, touting the country’s free access to basic education and health care, although he acknowledged that Havana itself “looks like it did in the 1950s” because the economy is “not working”. Obama concluded his comments by arguing that a market-based system “has to have a social and moral and ethical and community basis”. Reaction to the remarks wasn’t pretty. “This man is so destructive, so harmful and so ignorant,” wrote Jim Hoft. “The Marxist in the White House is erasing the lines between two dangerous ideologies and the one that made the US great, just as he erased our borders. This is a man who would be at home in communist China,” chided the Independent Sentinel.
Change this trend if you can but survive and live as an ambassador of Christ in a troubled world. RB
