Currently a woman from California is suing Los Angeles and its police department because she says she was wrongfully arrested and jailed for nearly two weeks after being mistaken for another woman in Texas who shares her name. Apparently when trying to board a flight to Mexico she was made aware that there was a warrant for her arrest and detained. It was 13 days before the police determined they were dealing with a case of mistaken identity. Did you know the Bible has a lot to say about one’s identity? It does not teach regarding a mistaken identity but it does share about how a person can receive a new identity. 2 Corinthians 5:17 reads, Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
