Fellow Christians, men and women be an activist to reclaim God’s principles and values in our country. In our United States by the grace of God almighty, “All man are created equal with justice and liberty for all”
Fellow Christians, It is the divine insistence that the affairs of our nation are governed according to fundamental principles that ensure that the weak and powerless are treated with the dignity that is rightfully theirs as people made in God’s own image. This is why all Christians must place as their number one priority the placing of good government and be the voice of justice and freedom for all.
Christians must focus on corruption. Corruption is a global challenge and is one of the biggest causes of global poverty; our United States is one of the main actors, the predators that created this global poverty. The World Bank has identified corruption as ‘the single greatest obstacle to economic and social development’ and claims that more than $ 1 trillion Dollars is lost in bribes, tax evasion and other forms of corruption every year. There is real despair about the capacity of developing countries especially to tackle a problem that is so embedded, but the prize for defeating corruption is clear: The World Bank estimates that countries that tackle corruption, and improve governance and the rule of law could increase per capita incomes by up to 400%. Corruption is both an economic as much as a spiritual problem in all cultures and economic systems. It is a moral departure from what is good. It involve human trafficking, drug trafficking, human slavery, bribery, embezzlement and the fabrication of motives to gain the people’s support to start wars.
Government, or ‘political’, corruption occurs when an office-holder or other governmental Employee acts in an official capacity in support of policies promoted by their own government for their own personal gain. Transparency International describes corruption as ‘the abuse of entrusted power for private gain. Corruption destroys the trust of the people on their own government and it is a crime of betrayal against the people.
God’s law it’s quite simple; do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be Compassionate and loyal in your love. Don't take yourself too seriously - take God seriously.
