Ted Kennedy

Someone sent me the following article today, and it stopped me in my tracks.


J. Grant Swank, Jr.
I often thought down through the years as to what Ted Kennedy would do with Jesus and Judgment Day when Kennedy breathed his last. I thought specifically of Chappaquiddick’s cover-up.
Now Kennedy has breathed his last.
He has appeared at the Judgment Seat of Christ. What happened?
One thing for certain is that truth won out. It has to for the Judgment Seat of Christ is confronting Truth in that Jesus named Himself as “the Way, the Truth and the Life.”
One does not escape Truth when at death providing an account of one’s earthly stay. Truth is the very core of that encounter upon exiting this sphere.
Kennedy was in the same vehicle as Mary Jo Kopechne. Mary Jo died in that vehicle at 29 years of age. It occurred at Chappaquiddick on Martha’s Vineyard.
Kennedy name and money covered up the full actual detail so that Kennedy continued on with his earthly journey. A young adult female did not. Her family was paid off to keep mum.
The secret was sealed after her death in July 1969—until the Judgment Seat of Christ.
Having partied with political campaign workers, Kennedy and Kopechne left together, not realizing that their car was headed for underwater. Kennedy swam to shore and went to bed. The next morning Kennedy did not report to authorities anything about the accident. Nothing reported.
The list of needling questions surfaced and continued to bother those with sensitive consciences and logical brains. In time, the needling gave way to numbness and finally a footnote in history.
That is, until Kennedy’s last breath and his standing before the Judgment Seat of Christ.
The biblically knowledgeable realize that eternity will reveal the facts about Kennedy, Kopechne and Chappaquiddick.

May this be a sobering reminder to all of us who tend to spiff up our own autobiographies.  The light of God will cut through all the fog of our own making.  Lord, please help us be honest before you, and admit the truth about ourselves that we may be washed clean now.
