Politician souls in jeopardy
Can anyone understand what is happening with this country, our elected representatives, and many upstanding citizens?
According to the news media many of “our” elected representatives are controlled by lobbyists that represent big organizations, and promise something in return if they introduce a bill, or vote for passage of a bill. Unfortunately, in most cases most of these bills are contrary to the benefit or welfare of the citizens that voted for them. The more of these bills they pass, the more it oppresses the middle class, seniors and needy.
Just how can these representatives (that claim to be Christians) look in the mirror, or face the voters that believed their false rhetoric? Many times I think about these rich people and corporations, how they like to pride themselves about all the things they have. Then, it reminds me of the many places in the Bible that tell about this type of people and judgment day; they’ll be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
I also think of many upstanding citizens that may or may not be Christians, although many claim to be even though they do not seem to remember what the “word” says about your fellow man, mostly the oppressed and poor. Some even believe that if you want to help the poor, you are some sort of communist, although throughout the Bible it stresses the need to help the poor, “not the rich.” In fact there are many places it tells of the penalties that these rich people like to brag about all of the wonderful things they have amassed, and want to show off some time it’s called status.
I would rather have a small house, automobile and rowboat, than a huge $50 million mansion, $100 thousand automobile and $20 million super yacht. I would rather satisfy a gracious God in the things that I do, rather than have very expensive things, which in all probability causes me to lose my soul.
I might add that I believe many of our politicians will, in all probability, suffer an undesirable fate, as according to the news media, many of them have sold their souls to corporations, organizations and rich persons, at the expense of the less fortunate (that voted for them).
