If you have been reading my editorials you know I am a strong believer that every problem comes with a solution. So in the face of all the corruption and destruction we are facing, do not despair, there really is hope, not the Obama kind of hope, I mean the real hope the Founding Fathers had when everything seemed to be against them and the inhabitants of the colonies.
Warning, true hope is not for the fainthearted, it is for those who understand the demands of their times and are willing to defy the powers that be; there is no room for cowards.
Yes, I did say that very problem has a solution. That is exactly what I believe and I am not alone in this. I am not a pessimist, nor utopian, I relay upon history to understand the facts and reject all speculation based upon falsehood. Those who affirm that the past does not count are only empowering those who revert to backward ideologies, philosophies or false religions in order to recycle them in the present creating hell on earth and guarantying a dark future. Winston Churchill said: “We cannot say the past is past without surrendering the future.” Has anybody ever told you that you should learn from your past mistakes? I know you have heard that statement and you know it is true, then why do people continue to ignore the past lessons of history? Could it be because by negating that past they think they can forge a better life even if it is on a faulty foundation?
Plato, the Greek philosopher, (428 - 347 BC) stated in his writings of The Republic quoted his friend and mentor Socrates, “Badness always manifests in destruction and corruption, while goodness always manifests in preservation and benefit.” (ca. 374 B.C.) The malady of corruption has been with the human race for thousands of years. Even though the Greek philosophers had no access to the written Law of God as the Israelites did, their conscious was subject to the part that every person has by virtue of being created in the image and likeness of God; it is with us from conception. Since the beginning of time men have known that a bad action always brings corruption followed by destruction. They have also known that good actions preserve human sanity and produce benefits for all; so simple to understand, right? Then why is it easier for evil to dominate the heart and mind of individuals?
It is easy to detect corruption in politics and business than in any other area of human development, the reason being is that we all witness how positions of power are abused to line the pockets of the powerful, and the way they take advantage to advance their personal agendas and that of their friends and family. Along with this worldview of greed and envy we must not overlook the culture of bribery and preferential treatment they grant to some. Let us not continue to fool ourselves and call it for what it is, corruption. It is common to hear the saying when it comes to politics “that’s politicians for you” as if that explains it away, excuses it or makes it right. It is this bad behavior which causes people to fail at their responsibilities to perform morally right and to be successful in every area of life which includes their civic duty. Since corruption tends to blind people’s minds priorities get out of step. The present is neglected not knowing they are contributing to create a greater fall in the future by ignoring the national demands for goodness in order to solve the needs of their community and country.
It is amazing and sad to see how power changes most people’s behavior, no matter how small or how great that power may be. Lord Acton (1834–1902), seeing how corruption can be found in every part of the political spectrum caused him to make this affirmation by stating "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Since then many have quoted him; was Acton one hundred percent correct in his assessment? Not really. I understand this is the case when a person’s morality rebels against God’s moral law his moral principles are dominated by ulterior motives. It is also true that if a person understands that he or she will be held accountable, not only in this life but also in the one to come before Almighty God who is the sovereign ruler, the supreme lawgiver and judge of the world, the universe and heaven, then there is no power on earth or hell that can cause that person to be corrupted.
God has absolute power, He cannot be corrupted; Jesus in His public life manifested self-control that not even Satan’s best offer of power and prestige persuaded Him to consider even for a second to accept such temporal earthly fame to corrupt himself. Jesus had power over the enemy and his host of fallen angels and humans who followed his lies (Matthew 4; Luke 4). Jesus, in his earthly body, left us a testimony that absolute power given by God cannot corrupt a heart whose delight is to do God’s will. Christ conquered death by His resurrection; before His ascension he declared: "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me” (Matthew 28:18). He delegated that very same power to His disciples, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, …and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age" Matthew 28:19-20). Since then the true followers of Christ cannot be bought or corrupted by any power or fame. History is filled with testimonies of men and women of all ages who left a testimony to their generation as well as future ones that absolute power does not corrupt.
George Washington was offered to be king of the newly formed nation, his answer? No! He served two terms as President of the United States of America and said that was enough. Washington was not corrupted by the power bestowed upon him. Like him, many of the Founding Fathers embraced the same values as Washington and recognized that only a sick mind can believe the lie that man can indefinitely hold power without corrupting and destroying lives.

Karl Marx stated, “A people without a heritage are easily persuaded. Now you can understand why it has been so important for those who have tirelessly worked to rewrite the history of America and continue to do so in order to eliminate the true story of the early colonists like the Pilgrims followed by the Puritans all the way to the American Revolution and beyond. Their main goal has been to eradicate the biblical worldview by ridiculing every concept of God’s ethical and moral law just like Obama did when he ridiculed God’s Word and has been affirming that America is no longer a Christian nation, but also a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, as well as a nation of non believers. He makes a valid point by stating that if America was a Christian nation, then whose denominational perspective of the Bible should be implemented? You can hear him stating this by going to youtube.com and search for “Obama ridicules God or the Bible.”

Obama used the pulpit of a church to make those statements under the applause of his listeners. As an elected official to the highest office of the land, he made the same statement in his visit to Turkey, a Muslim nation. By now, Obama’s ideology is becoming clearer to many who voted for him in the 2008 presidential elections. Now there is no denial of his Marxist worldview. This is the reason he must apply Marx’s principle of eradicating the American biblical worldview heritage to consolidate over one hundred years of efforts to establish the communist brand of paradise in America and the world. 

Obama, by pounding that America has other philosophical and religious beliefs, implies America no longer has the right to govern its institutions on Biblical ethics and morality, that it must be governed by other ideas. All this in preparation to dismantle whatever form of true biblical Christianity is left.  He, and all his comrades, is following Marx’s instructions to the letter: “A people without a heritage are easily persuaded.  Do you see it now? Do you understand it? Destroy any trace of biblical morality and a Marxist form of government will triumph! The goal is to corrupt the biblical social foundation and it will collapse.  

The other goal from the left is to eliminate the Constitution as we know it. In all honesty they are not the ones who started the dismantling of the Constitution, in reality the trampling of the Constitution started in mid 19th century.  The Constitution was in the way of those who wanted to have big government in control, a central power that would distribute wealth and restrict private property as well as human freedom.  Do you know why they hated the Constitution? I will let one of the Founding Fathers answer that question:

"I do not believe that the Constitution was the offspring of (Divine) inspiration, but I am perfectly satisfied that it is as much the work of a Divine Providence as any of the miracles recorded in the Old and New Testament."Benjamin Rush

I constantly have to answer a question that so many ask me: is it too late for America to be restored? My answer is very simple: it depends on what people do. Let me share the following quotes:

“When God wants to judge a nation, He gives them wicked rulers.” 
- John Calvin

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” 
- George Santayana

“The only thing new in the world is the history you don’t know.”
- Harry Truman

“The whole of history is incomprehensible without Jesus.”
- Ernest Renan

“The future is always built out of the materials of the past.”
- Booker T. Washington

“The greatest advances in human civilization have come when we recovered what we had lost: when we learned the lessons of history.”
- Winston Churchill

“Providence punishes national sins, by national calamities.”
- George Mason - Father of the Bill of Rights


Christian America must get their lives right with God if corruption is to be stopped and destroyed from its midst. Christians should not be demanding honesty from others and do the opposite in their personal, family and social life, work place or school. 

Coming against corruption is a need for survival if we associate it with the destruction it produces and that in its self will give us the courage to restore the culture of honesty that brings restoration to all social institutions. No form of corruption should be justified regardless of the circumstances. We must eradicate the mentality that reporting corruption is of no avail and nothing good can come out of it because no one wants to do anything about it. We must not fear retaliation be it personal or professional. Just be sure you have all the facts in place to denounce corruption. You may lose your job or a promotion; the good news is that He who rewards integrity will make a way for your life to be promoted where you can be of greater influence for the good of others.  

Never lose sight of who ultimately rules the world and how Christ is supporting His true followers who are implementing God’s ethics as revealed in His Word. Take courage, the law of self-proclaimed autonomous man has never succeeded, and their word has never been sovereign.

As we continually recognize the authority of God’s law and its application to modern society we can have the assurance that our involvement in stopping corruption will bring the desired results. We must be the generation of Christians willing to break away with the cultural and intellectual helplessness of the majority who profess the Christian faith that by their lifestyles deny the power of Christ’s death and resurrection.  We must reject at all cost to be clay in the hands of the enemies of God. The time to expose the corruption and destruction of the humanists is now. They are beginning to take notice that their lies are being exposed and their view of life and the world is coming to an end. 

“The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion. When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but with a man of understanding and knowledge, its stability will long continue. ” Proverbs 28:1-2
