Proverbs 19:28 – “An ungodly [wicked; evil] witness [reiterating; testimony given in court] scorneth [mocks] judgment [justice; due process]: and the mouth [speech; commands] of the wicked [ungodly; morally wrong; guilty] devoureth [swallows up; destroys] iniquity [sin; wickedness; trouble].”
What a timely verse is today’s proverb when America’s judicial system, once the envy of the world, is so terribly compromised by lawmakers who have no moral compass, law enforcement who sometimes show a lack of restraint, lawyers who distort matters of law, judges who have no interest in justice and a citizenry that is encumbered with a seared conscience and openly scorns moral absolutes!
Lies, deceit and distortions have become the modus operandi of American politics and the distinct lines of right and wrong are erased by a nation that tolerates injustice and is intolerant of God’s Laws.
Our judicial system abides lies, encourages compromise, exacts injustice, rewards criminal behavior and punishes the innocent. What has happened to America? You need only look at who is in authority.
Proverbs 29:2 – “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”
The wicked have an appetite for sin and when they are in authority, justice fails and the righteous are consumed.
