PCUSA reaping what it sowed

As I was searching through older posts I came across this one about reaping what you sow. And sure enough the next story I came across to report today, turned out to be an apt example of that.

The Liberal branch of the Presbyterians (PCUSA) last year decided to divest in Israel because they didn't like the way the Israelis were making it harder for Palestinian terrorists to slaughter innocent Israeli children. Okay, they didn't use those words, but that's the essence of their complaint. They ignored the fact that Palestinians have confiscated Christian property, refuse to prosecute the murderers of Palestinian Moslims who convert to Christianity, and encouraged the rise of radical Islam that has resulted in violent attacks on Palestinian Christians, not to mention killed hundreds of Isrealis in shootings and bombings over the years. No, they criticized Israel.

The PCUSA must not have read Genesis 12:1-3 that says:

Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. [emphasis added]

Because they now can't seem to figure out why they are having financial problems.

Presbyterian Church U.S.A. (PCUSA)-affiliated Knoxville College is facing a lawsuit filed by 12 faculty members over back pay. Meanwhile, a separate lawsuit has been filed against the school's president for allegedly diverting bonus money....

According to Knoxville attorney Richard Duncan, the dozen faculty members, representing most of the full-time faculty at the school, say they haven’t been paid since June, 2004. He told the Christian Post that the schools are in debt to these plaintiffs of more than $250,000 in back wages and benefits...

The second lawsuit filed by eleven of the twelve is against Knoxville College President Barbara R. Hatton, who stepped into presidency in 1997 - the year when the school lost its national accreditation due to financial instability.

Cause and effect. A very simple concept.
