A Word of warning to the politicians–ON ALL SIDES–who whisper, lie, and cover up. Be warned you who think that you will never be held to account:
Psalm 2:10–12 (NIV)
10 Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling. 12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
Proverbs 17:13 (NIV)
13 Evil will never leave the house of one who pays back evil for good.
Proverbs 6:16–19 (NIV)
16 There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood [think here abortion & infanticide too], 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes [think cover-ups too], feet that are quick to rush into evil, 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.
Proverbs 15:31 (NIV)
31 Whoever heeds life-giving correction will be at home among the wise.
Ecclesiastes 4:13 (NIV)
13 Better a poor but wise youth than an old but foolish king who no longer knows how to heed a warning.
Be warned, the mouth of the Lord has spoken!
