Money and power will make people do things they normally wouldn’t do. Corruption goes back to the beginning of time and can be found throughout the Bible. People think financial control will bring them happiness, but it never does, you have to find that within yourself.
Officials don’t get rich holding public office! One must commit themselves to serve the people, and make a difference. When a person enters public office, that hasn’t been corrupted by politics, the country soars to greatness, for example, look at our country under the leadership of President Reagan. We are much better off when someone with a heart for the people is put into office. We should never choose a fox to guard the hen house!
Our country is in an election year, and could be the reason for the craziness. Please be mindful of how you vote, and weigh your choices carefully, we want our country to stay free, and God loving. One wrong vote could put us straight into communism, and those struggling for control would be more than happy to accept that as our fate. Remember what happened during the pandemic, and the officials who let power go to their heads, we must be very mindful, being they have more control than we thought.
But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. 2 Timothy 3:1-5
