Interested in what was done in ancient times to bring about closure to enact  “A representation of the punishment that would fall upon the elders if they are speaking falsely.”

The Chicago Tribune commentary article titled, Mueller’s testimony was good for Trump -and Pelosi, reported a poll that found that: 80 % of Americans wanted their “congressional representatives working more on infrastructure, health care and immigration.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is explain this same problem is recorded in history 3000 years ago and what ancient leaders did when they could not find evidence to solve a crime or accusation.  in other words, to formally enact a closure to the issue and move on because the inevitable was certain to bring final justice to the matter or issue.

King Solomon

For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:14)

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: (Ecclesiastes 3)

What’s My Point?

My point is this same situation is “nothing new under the sun”. in ancient Israel their elders, similar to our modern-day politicians, speak falsely or no one knew who committed a murder?

They believed that their land would be cursed unless a sacrificial ritual, of breaking a heifer’s neck, would bring about closure and remove the curse from their land.

They also believed that in time whoever was guilty would die and be judged by their God.

In My Opinion

We need closure on the Mueller report by our elders (politicians).

I do not recommend breaking the neck of a heifer to remove the curse that has been dragging on in the USA by politicians.

 Instead, lets just let the voters break the neck of the politicians in the next election and vote and rid them from office.

And in time, for anyone who ever reads Ecclesiastes Chapter 3, there will be a season of time for everyone to come to a final accounting in their lives.

In my opinion, I agree with the 80 percenters in the poll, now is the time to “a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;”
