What would God say and do if he was Mayor of Portland? The actual Mayor of Portland refuses to punish rioters who are destroying his city. The rioters are not arrested or if they are, they are released within hours to re-join the riots again. Evil is not being punished which means the weak are abused, lawlessness and anarchy abound, and wickedness grows rampant and triumphant.
What would God say and do if he was mayor of Portland? Exodus 22:16-31 gives us the answer. God protects the innocent by punishing the wicked. Let’s see how God does this by learning who God is.
