What about our leaders?

We live in good times and in terrible times.  It is heart wrenching to watch what goes on in the world.  However, in the end, we will all appear before the Judgment Throne.  We will give an account of what we did while on earth.  

How does God regard a leader who claims to be a practicing member of this or that church?  Yet that same leader invades an unsuspecting country and is responsible for the death of thousands?  Or a leader who is guilty of lying or corruption?  Yet he/she claims to be a ‘Christian?’  Will God grant them special forgiveness because they were leaders with heavy responsibility?  According to the Bible, God/Jesus: 

  • Has no favorites. 
  • Will judge based on what a person did.  
  • Judgment is not based on what a person claims.    

Scripture is very clear, 

‘Without holiness, no one will see the Lord.’  Hebrews 12:6 

Holiness excludes murder, war, lies, corruption, et cetera.  Those things will never be tolerated in God’s Kingdom.  The simple reason is that such things will endanger God’s people.  The Kingdom is centered on God and therefore on love, peace, harmony and fellowship.  

Conclusion

God commands us to pray for our leaders.  They are in great danger.

As you can see in the photo, there are two of us. We live and work together 24/7, studying and enjoying our grandchildren. Our passion is to know and understand what will happen after death. Is there a way to provide for and invest in that?
