Christianity Today’s Quote of the day:

“God’s got another plan right now.”

—Former Enron chief Ken Lay, to his family after being convicted of fraud and conspiracy charges. He later told supporters, “We’ll all come through this stronger and more reliant on God. … God will answer prayers.”

This is all really true. I mean St. Paul would heartily agree as well. He says almost the exact same sort of thing in 1 Corinthians 5:3:

3 For though absent in body, I am present in spirit; and as if present I have already pronounced judgment 4 in the name of the Lord Jesus on the man who has done such a thing. When you are assembled, and my spirit is present with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5 you are to hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.

Rather than a life of luxury, God has a different plan, which is judgment. So, Ken Lay is being handed over so that he may be saved in the day of the Lord, his body destroyed (or imprisoned at least) so that he’ll learn how to be stronger and more reliant on God.

This is surprisingly good theology from a convicted felon.

    Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.
