Men, we must not waver or compromise the truth under any circumstances. Do not ever apologize for speaking the truth because of pressure, no matter where the pressure comes from.
Deuteronomy 1:17 says, "Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man." Check Deuteronomy 16:19 also.
We must not play politics for this is the main reason for the disgrace in which our country finds itself. It's the way we are told Washington does business. Playing politics may be acceptable in Washington, but it's not acceptable to God who is the ultimate Judge of the nations. Playing Politics is playing double standards. It's speaking out of both sides of the mouth. Playing politics is playing with corruption and eventually turns the nation's leadership into a governmental mafia of huge proportions.
Biblical ethics remain the same no matter what the situation. There has never been a time in the history of our nation as great as this moment for the lifting up of truth. Truth is at the heart core of all Christian values. Christian values are absolutes. They remain the same even when we do not hold to them anymore.
Just as Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever, the unchangeable Christ, even so must we men and fathers be like him in all things.
