A Sermon (#530) Preached By William “Bill” Touchton
Edited by Michael D. Lawson
If you have your Bibles turn with me to Psalm 85.10. and I want us to look at this very unusual verse for just a moment, and then I want us to look at Romans 8.1.
On Tuesday of this week, (Oct. 3, 1995) millions of Americans and millions of people around the world turned on their TV sets, or radios and they listened as the lady read, “We the jury, find the defendant Orenthal James Simpson not guilty of the crime of murder.”
Now listen, after that verdict was announced there were two statements made that have divided the whole country.
Statement #1 was made by Ron Goldman’s father, he said, “Justice was not served today.” And many people agree and lined up behind that statement.
Statement #2 was made by Johnnie Cochran. He said, “Justice was served today.” And many people agreed and lined up behind him.
