Last weekend the mullahs took a big step towards becoming a nuclear power as they fueled the Bushehr nuclear reactor.Israel’s response? The Foreign Ministry published a statement proclaiming the move “unacceptable.”So why did we accept the unacceptable? When one asks senior officials about the Bushehr reactor and about Iran’s nuclear program more generally, their response invariably begins, “Well the Americans...”
Far from accepting that Israel has a problem that it must deal with, Israel’s decision-makers still argue that the US will discover – before it is too late – that it must act to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power in order to secure its own interests.
Let's narrow this down from a world scale to something on the personal level. While we decry the international community for its apparent acceptance of a "Nuclear Iran," do we use the same vociferous denunciation of against the displeasing things in our own hearts? Do we settle for the presence of actions, attitudes, or besetting sins that produce the same death as a nuclear weapon? The Spirit of God has been bringing this point to bear in my heart, causing me to reexamine what has become acceptable...things that have no more business taking up room in my life than Iran having nuclear weapons. We must remember that sin is death...meaning the presence of the unacceptable allows little seeds of death to sprout. If they are not dealt with quickly and severely, that stench of death can spread through every aspect of our lives and character. With the world in such peril, maybe we should do better at sweeping our hearts of death causing agents. Then, and only then, will we be able to stand in the face of the enemy's onslaught and proclaim the truth... "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God unto salvation for all who believe."
