Let’s dispense with the niceties…she’s corrupt. That’s not news, but it’s most unfortunate that the reputation and integrity of the FBI has now been tarnished too. With that being said, there are two things this newest Clinton scandal has brought to mind:
First – Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” Those that reject God’s authority over their conduct will ultimately have Him to answer to. God isn’t unaware of current events. On the contrary, He’s fully aware and uses them to bring about His righteous, sovereign purposes. Sometimes He intervenes in ways we can see during this life, while other times choosing less visible means. Either way, God is not mocked…even if our view of the circumstances suggests otherwise.
Second – As Christian citizens, we must demand a high standard from ourselves and our leaders. Hillary is a glaring example of how far the bar has been lowered. None of us have the luxury anymore to simply avoid “politics” and let others be mindful of such things. We must teach our children to know correct history, the rule of law, and the ways of good citizenship. And we pastors must be willing to preach the full counsel of the Word of God…as we’re called to do.
I admit, politically speaking, the last eight years or so have been unsettling to say the least, but we must keep the faith. After the Gal. 6:7 verse, Paul goes on to say this in verse 9; “and let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Let’s hang in there together while continuing to pray for our leaders. And remember, God is not mocked…by any of us.
