” One of the most under sung aspects about the New Administration era in U.S, is that every story tells a story about us, and the choices we made long before the reality-Television mogul descended from his golden escalator in the sky to crank up his ethnology-nationalist ghost dance. A year from now, we may well find ourselves with unassailable proof that the New Administration did set new standards for Oval Office ” CORRUPTION “, confirming all of the left’s deepest suspicious. But none of us should avoid the reckoning that comes with knowing that corrupt regimes the world over have for decades availed themselves of something intrinsically corrupt in Washington, and that we willingly provided them the opportunity to exploit it.” NBC Breaking News by Jason Unkius, The Editor of Eat the Press at the Huffington Post reporting about ” Manafort’s role in the corruption of democracy should humiliate us all. “
Corruption is an improbity or decay in the decision-making process in which a decision-maker consents to deviate or demands deviation from the criterion which should rule his or her decision-making, in exchange for a reward or for the promise or expectation of a reward, while these motives influencing his or her decision-making cannot be part or the justification of the decision. Professor ( emeritus ) Dr. Petrus Van Dugne.
In the more common sense, corruption is the misuse of entrusted power ( by heritage education, marriage, election, appointment or whatever else) for private gain. It can be classified as grand, petty and political depending on the amounts of money lost and the sector where it occurs. Naturally, Corruption carodes the fabric of society. It undermines people’s trust in political and economic system, institutions and leaders. It can cost people their freedom, health, money, and most often their lives.
But what is the source of this oldest evil people still emotionally includes into Breaking News as a ” fashionable vice “?
The Bible revealed in Genesis 3, the facts of the original sin, brought the separation from Man to God making the quest for atonement a driving human need. The communion with the Divine was broken. They now lived in a state alienation were corruption is the realm, and the end process was death. No life escaped this evil. Jesus Christ was God’s rescue operation;
Furthermore, Genesis 30: 15-16 “… Rachel said, If you will give me your son’s mandrakes ( charm used for fertility ) you can sleep with Jacob tonight….You are going to sleep with me tonight, because I have paid for you with my son’s mandrakes.” That is how God gave to Jacob one of his six children;
In the Book of Matthew 28: 11-15 “….They gave a large sum of money to the soldiers and said, you are to say that his disciples came during the night and stole his body while you were asleep….” The love of money as is common with wicked men, pushed them headlong, so that they did not mind the many improbabilities implies in the ” lie “, nor the horrible iniquity of it.The Jews refused to confess the resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord until now, trying to delay and misleading many, many of their gift of Salvation.
Jesus, Glorious Father, Merciful Abba, We implore your Spirit for repentance and revival worldwide – from our neighborhoods to political states, in order to freed us from the contagious gangrene of corruption, which compromised our Salvation gift. Amen!
