The Truth is Lacking in Washington (July 17, 2013)
Recent polls show that approval for all three branches of the federal government is forty percent or lower. And it is no wonder. It seems that American’s no longer trust Congress to tell the truth about what is in a law it passes, trust the President to enforce it, or the Courts to interpret it properly.
The prophet Jeremiah described his country prior to God’s judgment, this way: “Justice is turned back, And righteousness stands far away; For truth has stumbled in the street.” The federal government is a mess not just because of its policies, but because, in general, truth and integrity are lacking in Washington.
Sadly it will remain that way until Americans once again fear God and insist that those who govern them do too.
