Taking a Stand

Some say the harlot which I wrote about in yesterday’s post and described in Revelation 17:1-6 represents the ultimate in godless world religion. A question brought out in this passage is what is the extent of corruption in your local, state and national government?

Taking stands on tough issues is what we need from leaders. Truth will always be truth and wise leaders realize that honesty is the best policy. They not only have class and character but are careful to surround themselves with others who have these same attributes. The result is a pattern of excellence with justice and fairness.
Ultimately, those on the side of God are victorious so remain faithful until the end my friend. I hope you will be inspired by this video of one leader that took a stand years ago when he gave this speech: Winston Churchhill “Finest Hour”.

But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. – Amos 5:24
