The biggest mistake is to think that humans can be perfect. Another is to think that humans are capable of being holy by their own words or actions. Lastly, that the pope or any spiritual leader is a perfect man. An automatic or quick judgement would be to say that the bad person is the murderer, but it wasn’t a murder who pushed for the killing of Christ. It was a high-priest, in other words, a Pharisee who wanted Jesus crucified for the reason of blasphemy. They didn’t believe He was who He said He was, the Son of God. His ways were different from their religious ways. They hated how Jesus made them feel unrighteousness, which sounds very familiar these days.
Years back, I would exercise around a block by work and I would see flowers off the side of the sidewalk. I found out later that it was where a business man was shot by his partners while he was taking a walk, shortly after he told them he wanted out of the illegal business they were involved in.
I’ve heard more stories as such. It’s a sad thing that most of society worships money and power to the point that they would orchestrate illegal acts that can harm others and put their loved ones in danger. Some would go through great lengths to cover up their mess, in business, in personal dealings and even all the way up to the government.
It’s not about having faith in the honor or legitimate practices of people in power as we are all flawed in our flesh, weak in temptations and without strength to speak the truth and stand up to the pressures of the crowd. What the majority is for or against or what comes from the mainstream media now has the power to set what is right from wrong & rather then looking into other news sources, we just follow along. One of the most disheartening circumstances is to be in a position where someone is intentionally going behind your back and ruining your reputation. Even more hurtful is when the person listening to the lies accepts it as truth without question.
Too many times The mainstream media would present news without showing an actual video to back up the information, more like a hearsay, while other news channels that others aren’t too familiar with will show live videos or recent recordings of first-hand information, such as many people giving their testimony under oath about fraud. But the mainstream media doesn’t show any of it. In fact, they censor it.
Imagine a world where citizens of a country are fed lies, where the truth is hidden from them & the elite and the government take away their rights. Most tragically, our First Amendment, freedom of speech taken away. We can deny it as much as we like, but the truth is, we are humans, flawed and tempted, capable of being corrupt and wicked. However, we are each individuals that can think for ourselves. We don’t need others telling us whom to hate or who the bad guy is. We’re all born with instincts, although sometimes it gets buried in mud. The Lord can resurrect it.
Jesus said while on the cross in Luke 23:34 NKJV
 Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” And they divided His garments and cast lots. In other words, “These humans on earth don’t know what they’re doing.” A desire to be righteous, too be seen as good, admired, or feel better than someone is something that all of us are guilty of. It’s human nature. Fighting against are human tendencies takes super-natural strength.
But the pressures of life, can throw us off causing us to question our own decisions and forgetting about our purpose. We make decisions based on the pressure from others, the belief that what is true, becomes false because that’s what more people believe. Not wanting to feel like a fool, not wanting to have others hate you, reject or despite you, you follow along with the main belief that everyone holds true, not listening to the loud voice within you. Then you make the wrong decision and spend forever in shame and deep regret, wishing you would’ve made the right decision and not have been influenced by the pressures of society.
It takes much faith in God to walk in fear and trembling across a high bridge that can shatter at any point. The truth is that we should only fear God. Luke 12:4-5 NKJV says… “And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.  But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him! People don’t want to dig into big issues that need resolution, instead turn away and make believe it doesn’t exist. We’ve put a band-aid on our problems, a temporary fix that will always arise.
We live in a broken society where dignity is compromised, morals are laughed at and people will sell their soul for money or power. The integrity and morals of our society have been plummeting and rather than cleaning up the mess, our leaders are willfully blind to it not wanting to turn away or resolve. Money, greed and power corrupts our soul and some go through great heights to hide the shame.
My prayer tonight is that the truth will come out in all the chaos and mess that’s happening in our country. The leaders and planners of violence and corruption will be exposed, judgement will be brought forth and that the mainstream media will no longer be able to blind the public with lies. I pray that truth will win and the root of corruption in our government will be cut out. Keep us safe during this time of lawlessness and chaos. In Jesus name. Amen.
