“Scorners” (582/3944). Not a pretty word. In this context it is not meant to be pretty. When you look at the context you see that these are people who “set aflame” (6315) your neighborhood. Does that sound familiar? This is not the person who lights the fire but the one who blows on the coals to cause it to get bigger. This is the bellows, not the match. That may be a quality that gets you a following in a mob but it is not the way Christians should act. How did Jesus put it?
(Matthew 5:9 KJV) Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.So? We have many people trying to start riots and cause dissension among the population. Who knows their motives. It could be anything from genuine desire to see justice done to mental illness. I do know what our actions should be. Be a peacemaker, not a sparkplug.
