Isn’t it ironic that our political leaders are calling each other corrupt but deny sin?


In every political season, it’s almost comical (if not so sad) to hear our political candidates talk about how corrupt our government is and yet they are part of it! You hear these guys talk about corruption in government and it’s just accepted by all of them and all of us as if, “that’s just the way it is.” How sad to accept corruption in our leaders!

Sin is so evident. Mankind seizes power and uses it for selfish, corrupt reasons. Sin manifests in front of our eyes yet we deny sin’s presence and even preeminence in our culture. Romans 1 reminds us that mankind will “suppress the truth in unrighteousness” and that means denying sin even when it is so clearly evident before our eyes. We acknowledge problems but do not always lay the blame on the right culprit: our sinful, selfish nature! Instead, we blame mental illness and the like…

In a fallen world, we need a Savior to save us from our sins. I am glad He is returning soon!

Happy Election Day! Go vote for the best sinner (or the least of sinners)!

-Mark (calling our attention to sin so that we will then turn to our Savior, Jesus Christ!)
