Liberal Leaders and Political Liars
2 Peter 2:19 (KJB) While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
Boy does this verse speak volumes about the condition of our corrupt world. It is no exaggeration that there are numerous corrupt preachers, teachers, and a harsh political climate. This truth rings true both then and today.
If you think that false preachers and corrupt politicians are something new, you are wrong!
True freedom will never be realized in any political or religious based triumph for with it comes strings attached and spiritual bondage to whims and ways of this world. You see, as this verse articulates, there is never any freedom to be found apart from knowing and serving God as Corruption, dishonesty, and spiritual exploitation are commonly found.
Why is that? Because preaching, politics, and government leadership can only be as good as the spiritual condition of their leaders. Both this world and its broken political process is based on ideals and machinations of man, all the while ignoring things of God. Many self-professed preachers and political leaders have spiritually wayward or lost hearts, failing to personally know and follow God.
Why do many place their hope for a better future in such errant leadership? Because they do not know any better. This is an excellent question concerning the state of the heart of many popular preachers, leaders, politicians, and authority figures often under the auspices of a world-based belief and value system making them subject to bondage rather than enjoying freedom given of Christ.
God is The Foundation of this world. His nature is eternal and all things that naturally spring from Him and for Him are right, true, and lasting. He operates under an open and unlimited spiritual arena, rather than a limited glass ceiling or structure in this world.
You see, only in Christ is true freedom possible and the norm in the lives of all who place trust in Him. Therefore, glance at politics and corruption at work in this world and lean solely on God for only sincere fellowship with Him will usher in freedom lasting forever and separation from bondage at work in this world.
