John Milton’s Example for Christians Today

January 9th, 2014 lindarae No comments

I have been reading the prose and poetry of John Milton with great interest. It is not easy reading since the style of writing fits the practices of the 17th century. However, his goals and ideas illuminate God’s directions to Christians in all ages.

Milton was very aware of how the popular writers in his time had excellent abilities but that the content of their works encouraged vulgarity and excesses. God inspired him to resist seeking success and popularity by incorporating the same vulgar subject matter and moral transgressions in his writings. He accepted God’s vocation for him to bring an even higher standard of scholarship and poetic ability than his contemporaries, but to resist their worldly motivations and adaptations to the culture.

Even more important to him was his God-given desire to write an epic surpassing the epics of Homer, Virgil and Tasso for the sake of revealing God’s ability to inspire a Christian to outshine all non-Christian writings throughout the ages. He also connected the superior writing he would achieve as an inspired Christian writer with a desire to honor Great Britain. He connected his God-given talent with a sense that God had called the “British islands” to a special role in God’s plans for salvation and restoration.

Milton’s desire to impact his culture by writing outstanding prose and poetry can be an inspiration to those in the arts and learning today. Christians have the same opportunity to impact our culture if they allow God and put in the time and effort to perfect their skills in the arts and education. Milton wrote the greatest epic poem of all times when he wrote Paradise Lost under the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit. He succeeded in surpassing the writers of his era and the epics of the past. He was the best at what he did, and it took years of study and research besides God’s inspiration to achieve God’s purpose.

Christians can produce the same levels of poetry, prose, films, fine arts, sculptures, dance, choreography, and teaching through hard work and spiritual dedication. They should be the best in all of the areas of arts and education. Through excellence, Christians’ talents will not be ignored by our increasingly secular society. Dedicated, talented Christians can touch the human spirit and lift up the culture in our nation. They have a vocation to do for our country what Milton did for his.

“I began thus far to assent both to them and divers of my friends here at home, and not less to an inward prompting which now grew daily upon me, that by labour and intense study (which I take to be my portion in this life), joined with the strong propensity of nature, I might perhaps leave something so written to aftertimes, as they should not willingly let it die. . . .That what the greatest and choicest wits of Athens, Rome, or modern Italy, and those Hebrews of old did for their country, I, in my proportion, with this over and above, of being a Christian, might do for mine; not caring to be once named abroad, though perhaps I could attain to that, but content with these British islands as my world”; (John Milton, “Reasons of Church Government Urged Against Prelaty” http://www.bartleby.com/209/415.html )

GLAAD Has Gone Too Far!

December 21st, 2013 lindarae No comments

GLAAD has opened Pandora’s box of pent up emotions. I went onto their Website and the majority of comments show fury at their intolerance of Phil Robertson. The commenters are not necessarily Christians; they are angry with the suppression of ideas and speech.

Something has risen up inside of many Americans over this Duck Dynasty controversy that has been ready to blow for a long time. You can only take so much mind and speech control before you blow. And this pressure cooker has definitely lost its lid.

I hope and pray for this reaction to be sustained until freedom of speech and religion are restored. I have certainly missed them. Our minds have been enslaved by politically correct restrictions and threats. I want freedom! It’s like a dictatorship of the mind and I’m rebelling against it!

Phil Robertson Paraphrased 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Check It Out

December 21st, 2013 lindarae No comments

Here is the Bible passage that Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty paraphrased in the GQ interview (the “Kingdom of God” is heaven): “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9-10, NKJ).” This passage is one of many in the New Testament listing sins.

Phil Robertson was stating a biblical fact, not making a judgment. I haven’t heard any complaints from idolaters, fornicators, adulterers, thieves, drunkards, etc. They don’t feel judged because in their hearts they know what they are doing is a sin (or it’s wrong). They have learned to live with any societal judgments and consequences of their choices. Some homosexuals have reacted so strongly to the Bible as quoted by Robertson because they don’t want to feel guilty or ashamed; however, guilt and shame are part of the God’s (Jesus is the Son of God) message. If they knew in their hearts they weren’t sinning, they wouldn’t need anyone else to tell them. They would just live their lives in peace, knowing they were right. They should just say they don’t agree with the Bible; then they can let people who believe in the Bible alone.

Homosexuals don’t need societies’ stamp of approval as long as they are not persecuted and harmed for their lifestyle. America has many subcultures and non-traditional practices. Most Americans accept or tolerate those they disagree with because they believe in freedom. For example, I don’t like the look of so many tattoos on people’s bodies, but it would never stop me from having a friend who has tattoos. Still, some people judge or are repulsed by them. People with tattoos made a choice and have learned to live with any judgment. It has to do with courage for our convictions.

I know many people, and some of them are Christians, pick and choose what parts of the Bible they accept and follow. However, with God, it is all or nothing. Of course, it is up to God to convict and Christians should not condemn. However it is not condemnation when God’s Word makes a person feel guilty and ashamed for sinning. Conviction brings people to Jesus to repent for and be saved from their sins, and then He frees them from guilt and shame. Now, isn’t that marvelous! With God, we don’t have to be a slave to guilt, shame or sin. We can possess true freedom.

Can You Be a Christian and Ignore the Bible?

December 19th, 2013 lindarae No comments

Because of Phil Robertson’s, Duck Dynasty’s patriarch, comments on sin and the reaction of many homosexuals and the media, I decided to clarify Christian teaching on the subject of sin. The question arises: Can you sin or in other words, violate the teachings, laws, and principles in the Bible and be a Christian? Can a Christian be an adulterer, a fornicator (sleep around outside of marriage), a homosexual, drunkard, covetous, envious, a slanderer, bitter, selfish, etc. and still be a Christian (1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Galatians 5:21)?

The Bible, God’s Word, teaches that once you become born again, believe in Jesus Christ and commit your life to Him you possess eternal life (John 3:3, 18). Once you have committed your life to Jesus, the Son of God, all of your sins committed up to that point are forgiven. Also, you are no longer a sinner because your sinful nature has been changed by the presence of Christ’s life in you (Romans 6:6 ). Now that you are saved or redeemed, you are filled with Christ’s life and His life in you causes you to have a strong desire to please and obey God. You begin to read the Bible and go to church and discover that God has not only forgiven your past sins but He also does not want you to keep sinning.

Therefore, now out of a desire to please God and obey Him because you are so grateful that Jesus died and rose again to provide you a way out of your sin and Hell, you ask God to renew your mind and keep you from sinning. You want to avoid all sins that are described in the Bible and seek God’s grace (His life and power in you) to resist and overcome sin.

God begins to free you from lust, swearing, addictions, sexual sins, greed, hatred, bitterness, impulsiveness, and excesses of all kinds. He provides healing for your heart, mind and body. He loves you so much He does not want you to be a slave to any sin.

Therefore, now to repeat the question: Can you keep sinning after committing your life to the Lord, becoming born again, and still be a Christian? The Bible is the standard for what is and is not sin. Of course, all Christians sin from time to time, but there goal is to be free from habitual sin and to sin less and less as they draw closer to God over the years. The goal is to please and obey God and to become as much like Christ in this lifetime as possible. Of course, as a reminder, that is not done by human effort, but through God’s life working in the believer.

If some Christians ignore the Bible and/or justify their sin over a long period of time, without making an effort to stop that sin, they are called backslidden Christians. They have accepted the Lord at some point, but sin has hardened their hearts and they no longer try to please and obey God. Is there a point at which backslidden Christians lose their salvation and are no longer Christians? Truly, only God knows when and if there is a point when that happens. Some Scriptures point to that possibility, but only God makes that judgment. Personally, I would not want to take that chance. I have experienced God’s great mercy through His Son, Jesus, and desire to please Him, but I also know He is just, and that also scares me away from sinning.

Duck Dynasty, Phil Robertson, Suspended

December 19th, 2013 lindarae No comments

Below, I have included parts of an article written by Elizabeth Durand Streisand. She quoted parts of Phil Robertson’s interview for a future article in GQ magazine.

Phil Robertson has been suspended since this article, so I’m praying for the Duck Dynasty family to have wisdom on how they should respond. I know for now that I will not watch anything on A&E except Duck Dynasty, to support the family but not A&E. I will wait for the family’s response before making further decisions.

A&E isn’t judging the Duck Dynasty family; they are judging the Bible and what it says. How can they suspend the principles in the Bible upon which our Declaration of Independence and Constitution are founded? What happened to freedom of religion and speech? I pray God will use this event to arouse Christians into action. When will the majority in this nation stand up for God and Jesus and stop letting the minority take over our culture? Jesus said we had to suffer persecution to be His followers. It is time to take up the cross and follow Him.

My earlier comment:

It was refreshing to see Phil Robertson, of the Duck Dynasty reality show, speak candidly about the biblical view of sin. Most Christian celebrities would avoid being that honest. He didn’t pick on homosexuals when he quoted Corinthians. That passage includes all kinds of sin. It just happened that God includes homosexuality as one of the sins on the list of sins. It is not more or less sin.
If homosexuals demand the show be removed from A&E or there be a reprimand, all of the adulterers, idolaters, greedy, drunkards, slanderers and swindlers should be equally offended. They probably won’t speak out because the people in that category want to hide their sin because they feel ashamed. They know they are sinning. The Bible also includes fornicators in its lists of sins in various Scriptures, so that really increases the pool of the offended.

I don’t know when it became politically incorrect to state that people sin, but until recently it was generally accepted that humans weren’t perfect. I guess the only way to keep from feeling ashamed and guilty when you do wrong things is to make up your own rules for right and wrong. We might find some unintended consequences for society when the rules or standards for right and wrong keep changing. Maybe some of those school and workplace shootings have something to do with the loss of clarity about what is sin. Lawlessness does cause chaos.

The politically correct efforts to control freedom of thought and speech may change the discussion, but it doesn’t change the truth.
I think Robertson’s statement at the end of the article is a good summary of an honest yet compassionate view of how many Christians, all former sinners and continuing to battle sin, view the problem of sin and how we want to help others find forgiveness and salvation.

‘Duck Dynasty’ Under Fire Following Star’s Incendiary Anti-Gay Remarks
By Elizabeth Durand Streisand, Yahoo TV

Speaking with GQ, Robertson lamented that when “everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong … sin becomes fine.” So just what qualifies as sinful in his book?

“Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there — bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men,” he declared.
Phil probably should have cut himself off at this point (considering he’s a national TV star), but instead he paraphrased Corinthians. “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God,” he warned. “Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

Despite Phil’s strong words, however, he insists he’s a Christian who doesn’t condemn others — even if they are “sinners” in his mind. “We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job,” he told the magazine. “We just love ‘em, give ‘em the good news about Jesus — whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ‘em out later, you see what I’m saying?”
Still, Robertson insisted that his family “really believes strongly that if the human race loved each other and they loved God, we would just be better off. We ought to just be repentant, turn to God, and… everything will turn around.”

In a statement released via A&E, Robertson attempted to clarify his remarks: “I myself am a product of the ’60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior. My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.

I did not include the whole article, but only quoted parts of it. You can go to http://tv.yahoo.com/blogs/tv-news/-duck-dynasty–star-s-anti-gay-remarks-spark-outrage-134231650.html for the complete article.

Lessons from the Industrial Revolution for this Technological Age

December 18th, 2013 lindarae No comments

Since the beginning of the Information Age or Revolution, discoveries and improvements have moved at a rapid pace. Uses for the Internet and communication have changed the world since the 1980s. It is affecting the economy, civil rights, government, military, churches, social interaction and all aspects of society. As a result of these radical changes and inventions, new concerns have arisen for freedom and equality on all levels of modern life.

It appears we are in a revolution that is outside of recent human experience, and we are floundering to find a way to guide us through this bewildering new age. Yet we must not forget that history has many lessons to teach us. This is not the first time that advancements in technology have revolutionized society, religion and government. We need only look to the Industrial Revolution to find a model or guide (there were earlier technological advancements, but not as all-encompassing as the Industrial Revolution). If we analyze the problems occurring and solutions discovered during the Industrial Revolution, we can discover procedures, instructions and guidelines to apply to this new technological revolution.

We can lessen the divisions and interior struggles for human rights and against unfair practices and increase the opportunities for all people, in our nation and around the world, if we learn the lessons from the past. The Industrial Revolution caused power struggles and injustices along with great opportunity for the financial advancement for all people. We can draw from the union movements and the formation of new laws to find the path for the present time. The extremes of wealth and poverty caused by industrial advancement and capitalism were overcome by the mid-twentieth century, and, in the industrialized countries, the majority in the poorest class lifted themselves up to the middle class.

My generation, being born in 1940, experienced the transition through our parents’ great efforts to make the industrial engine a means to raise up their own economic standing and even more so for their children. I saw the extreme poverty of my grandmother and aunts and uncles give way to explosion of opportunity for my parents and even more so for my generation and the baby boomers. It was a result of taking the elements of the Industrial Revolution and bending them to the advantage of the majority. For those who could break free from accepting limitations and labels, the Industrial Revolution provided the means to rise out of poverty.

This new age offers the same opportunities, and these opportunities can be expanded to more nations than those affected by the Industrial Age. If we choose wisely and learn from the past, we can move millions, if not billions, out of poverty. I am not being a Polly Anna by saying this. We have already seen nations previously considered third-world, increasing their middle class and becoming modern states as a consequence of this technological age.

Of course, there are always obstacles and the powerful who will abuse the weaknesses in our laws. However, we can write new laws to limit those abuses. We must look to history for guidance in order to avoid some of the pitfalls of an industrial age that pitted Marxism against capitalism to solve a problem that required less excessive and extreme solutions. Rather, we can find a balanced and less ideological way to prevent the injustices of the Industrial Age in the Technological Age. We can seek the path of laws and common sense rather than head off into some ideological ranting that will only postpone the real solutions.

What Does It Mean to Be Born Again?

November 30th, 2013 lindarae No comments

This blog is connected to the website, http://winningtheculturewarthebook.com and I write the articles of this blog to help define and develop the ideas from my book, Winning the Culture War. Some of the articles are spiritual in nature to help Christians reading the book to obtain the spiritual growth necessary to be a Christian Culture Warriors in a very secular world. Without a degree of wholeness and holiness, Christians will not be able to impact this world; rather it will impact and corrupt them. In this article, I make an effort to lay the foundation for a born-again believer to understand the power of Christ in them to sustain them. My main goal is to help them avoid making a human effort to be like Christ and to recognize God’s power in them to accomplish God’s purpose in their lives.

The following is not agreed upon classic Christian theology; these thoughts are one’s drawn from my studies of the Jewish temple and Christians being the temple of the Holy Spirit.  Watchman Nee’s book, The Spiritual Man, provides a similar approach, but even as I admire his writings and have drawn from them, I would draw some slightly different conclusions. These ideas are not part of core Christian doctrines required for salvation.

2 Cor. 5:17 New creation; Romans 6:4-11 Old man; Colossians 3:9-10 put on the new man; Romans 5:12, 15-21 Sin entered the world by the one man, Adam, and the free gift of eternal life came by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ. Spirit, soul and body: I Thessalonians 5:23; 2 Timothy 1:7:

These Scriptures express a truth that can be clarified by understanding how a person becomes a “new creation” and a “new man” when he/she becomes born again. Originally Adam and Eve consisted, in their being, of a spirit, soul and body. Their spirits had the capacity to commune or love God, know Him intimately and be righteous. When Adam sinned, his and Eve’s (humankinds) spirits died or became dormant, losing their ability to be intimate with God. Because of Adam’s sin, mankind now became what Scripture calls the “old man.” Without a living spirit, human nature was now fallen, making humans inclined to sin rather than be inclined to do what is good.

When the Son of God became man, He was born with a living spirit. His human nature, as the New Adam, consisted of a spirit, soul and body. Therefore, He not only paid for our sins by His death but also restored our spirits, gave them birth, through His Resurrection. When we become born again, accepting Jesus as our personal savior through faith and repentance, His life-giving grace gives birth to our spirits. Each of us as sinners, having had our spirits lying dormant, now experience their resurrection or birth. That is our spiritual birth. We join with the New Adam to be sons of God.

It is difficult to describe this process but a useful image is the blow up figures in people’s yards during the holidays. They are collapsed when they are not filled with air; in other words, they lie dormant and lifeless until filled with air. Once filled with air, they take on new life as a Santa Claus or a snowman or some other holiday creature. So too, our spirits lie dormant while we are sinners, but once born again, our spirits are filled with Christ’s life through the Holy Spirit, making them active in our beings.

We are now restored to Adam and Eve’s state of possessing a spirit, soul and body. We cannot walk and talk with God in the garden as they did; however, we can now commune and know God intimately through the new capacities of our spirits. We are a “new creation.” Not only are our sins forgiven, but we also possess new spiritual faculties to love and commune with God, receive revelation and knowledge of Him and know right from wrong.

As a result of the birth of our spirits, the Father sees us as righteous not only because our sins are paid for by Jesus death and covered by Jesus blood but also because we have received a new spirit that is holy and is filled with the Holy Spirit and, through the Spirit, with Christ’s life. We have become sons of God.

Once born again, our journey begins with God pouring out His Grace, Christ’s life, to begin the transformation of our hearts, souls and bodies. Grace is Christ life in us, living water, providing the power to be and do what we cannot be and do on our own. We need to place pleasing the Lord and becoming like Christ our ruling motivation. If we continue to dedicate ourselves to that goal throughout our lives, the Lord can use us to fulfill His purpose in this world. As the church, the Bride without spot or wrinkle, more closely manifests Christ’s character, it will be able to complete God’s plan for the preparation of the Lord’s return.

The book, the Handbook for Wholeness and Holiness (found on http://www.winningtheculturewarthebook.com/blog) further defines the path that needs to be taken and guides Christians to fulfill God’s plan for their individual lives as well as their bigger role in His broader plan. It requires steadfast and persistent commitment driven by unselfish, godly love.

Women’s Right to Choose

November 27th, 2013 lindarae No comments

Throughout the years I have suffered some discrimination for being a woman, but it is difficult to point to specific instances. Things began to change in my generation, being born in 1940 and graduating from college in 1962. I’m sure there were instances of discrimination, but nothing that prevented me from accomplishing my goals.

I’m a Christian, and some churches were slower than society to allow women in ministry in the fullest sense because there are Scriptures that are difficult to interpret and also, some men in the Church resisted evaluating those Scriptures in their cultural context. However, whatever resistance I experienced only provided an opportunity for me to grow in good character and to be more like Christ. More important than me obtaining my rights was who I became by having the right priorities of pleasing God rather than myself.

Of course, it was not an easy adjustment, but I was determined to put God before my rights. However, at the same time, I have worked to bring women into a more equal position with men. I do not think it is right to discriminate against women.

I am evaluating women’s rights in this article in the context of not only my Christian faith but also in the context of the secular inspiration of service I received from John F. Kennedy. He asked us to put our country before ourselves. We needed to value others and our country more than our own desires. He was appealing to the human capacity to be unselfish at a time when it is most needed.

In 1960, JFK called the youth of our nation to an era of unselfish service, but after his death, the opposite happened. Although equality needed to be increased for minorities and women, the ideology leading those movements after his death contained a victimization mentality based upon self-pity and bitterness rather than the higher goal of equality for the sake of justice and the greater good.

Many women and leaders in the feminist movement, motivated by bitterness, decided to demand their perceived rights above the basic human rights guaranteed by our Declaration of Independence and the first Amendment to the Constitution. These rights are God-given and, at times, in conflict with man-made rights. For example, the God-given right to life guaranteed by our Declaration of Independence has been sacrificed since 1973 to the man-made right of women’s choice. Women became gods when they gained the right to take the life of their babies.

The undermining of our basic God-given rights continues today. Next year, in a case coming before the Supreme Court, present-day feminists and government are making an effort to increase their power by violating the right of freedom of religion, which includes the freedom to follow ones’ conscience. They are demanding that companies and employers who have strong religious convictions violate their religious convictions so that a woman employee’s insurance can provide a pill that causes an abortion (a fertilized egg is prevented from attaching to the wall of the uterus). They don’t care if their demand violates the freedom of religion or conscience. How truly narcissistic and self-aggrandizing are their demands.

They have done the opposite of what JFK asked them to do. They are asking government do what gratifies their selfish demand rather than doing what is good for the country by preserving our guaranteed freedoms. They don’t care about the unintended consequences of the loss of constitutionally guaranteed freedoms as long as their insurance can provide them a pill that they can easily obtain through other means. They are discriminating against people who are practicing the long held principles of religious freedom and protection of life upon which our nation was founded. If they win this Supreme Court case, one day they will be faced with a situation in which their or their children’s freedom of speech, expression, assembly, life and religion will be challenged, and then it will be too late. They will have lost their most valuable rights because of their petty demands, motivated by selfishness and self-indulgence.

Seek Mutual Empathy, Not Hatred

August 11th, 2013 lindarae No comments

At a news conference, President Obama clarified the black perspective for the Zimmerman case. He tried to provide a context for the conclusions of many in the African American community. He explained why many blacks, because of their past experiences, cannot believe Zimmerman was not racially profiling Trayvon Martin. Probably all black males have felt fear and suspicion from whites in some social context—in elevators, department stores, and taxis—especially during their youth. As a result of those experiences, they conclude that if Trayvon had been white, Zimmerman would not have followed or confronted him and, therefore, Trayvon would not have attacked Zimmerman, leading to his death. George Zimmerman also had past experiences that influenced his actions that night that may not have anything to do with racial prejudice. As the neighborhood watch captain, he had often shown concern about the increase of burglaries in his gated community since the recession, having had 159 burglaries in 2011. He was frustrated with not being able to stop the burglaries. Therefore, he could have been reacting solely out of that concern. When the 911 operator asked him for a description of Trayvon, he did not identify him as black until he was asked about his race. These facts are important in order to get to the truth, and hopefully, prevent people from jumping to conclusions that are not supported by the facts. If only this tragedy could help blacks and whites in our nation achieve some understanding. Whites could learn to rethink how they respond to black males in future social situations, such as elevators, streets, and stores. They could avoid stereotypes that misjudge and prejudge many black men. Blacks could work with their youth to plant attitudes that show respect for all people and cleanse out attitudes of defeatism and self-pity. They could use our President as an example of how to achieve success through hard work and education. Possible solution: Seek mutual empathy, not hatred.

Zimmerman Hysteria

July 16th, 2013 lindarae No comments

I am becoming very weary of the constant hysteria generated by leaders of liberal causes. The Zimmerman trial is the most recent example. If I have to sit through one more moment of obfuscation by civil rights leaders, like Al Sharpton, I may never turn on a news show again. What aggravates me the most is the character of those leaders. They look at the camera and omit facts, so they can play on people’s emotions. God forbid that they might appeal to reason rather than emotion. And then they wonder why people go out and riot. Any deaths or injuries in the streets are on them.

What is wrong with using truth and reason sometime? Must we always be hysterical every time some liberal cause is generated by the liberal news media? It is hard to imagine that some women become emotionally overwrought because they can’t receive contraception in their insurance in a Catholic institution? Do they think their contraceptive needs are of higher importance than religious conscience and freedom of religion? Do some women think “choice” and “privacy” are more important principles than “life”? Probably they have been made to feel so overly important that they think their needs are more important than First Amendment and God-given, “endowed by our Creator,” rights. It is all so petty and selfish.

I hold the leaders of these liberal causes more accountable than their followers. Liberal leaders know they are playing on emotions and hiding the truth. They know that that “thing” in the womb is a human being; they know homosexuality is not determined genetically or biologically; they know that promoting gay marriage will have unintended consequences, which will harm our nation; they know that race is not always the motivation for why a black person is killed or jailed; they know that there is no “war on women.” They know the truth, but they hide it in order to hold on to power and money. They may not have to pay for their irresponsible, conscienceless behavior during this life, but they will not avoid justice when they stand before God in the next.
