Is this true – The birth of corruption is love for ones self more than other’s and not loving God? I think it is, hence I want us to discuss corruption today according to biblical perspective. By choice, we have taken this country on the path of ourselves first, ours flesh and nothing for them or God contrary to “love your neighbour as you love yourself”.

3. Galatians 6:8 because the person who sows to his own flesh will reap corruption from the flesh, but the one who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit.

Corruption is anti-godly; both the Koran or the bible have spoken against it. Believers are not to be conformed to corruption though we are seeing more and more of this which is causing Believers to wander away from the true teaching. 14433227_1436594269690696_7863297146997223522_n

As a Christian, I will base my opinion more around the bible but my main point is, corruption is not permissable by any faith nor should it be watched as if it’s OK.

HEAR THIS: Growing in Christ, In Love, and walking in spirit are the ways to fight corruption from within or else it’s easy to comform without knowing you are in and slowly losing yourself.


Like it or not, but both fighting and refusing corruption are godly and every Christian should take a step towards fighting against corruption or else you are walking away from loving God.

Refusing and Fighting corruption

John 21:17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.

Corruption is born from the feeling that I am more important and should get it, not anyone else. This is contrary to what Simon Peter was told. E.g Money meant for poor kids into your pocket.

Let me put what Peter was told in simple ways. “Peter do you love me (how do you do it)” Asked Jesus’s. ” Yes I do and I show it by loving you” he responded ” *Son the best way is not putting yourself first* but others by feeding them. This is the way I taught you about the true godly love. Love your neighbour as I have loved you. I forgot myself to make sure that you have a better life than me.”  14440609_1437425086274281_3671972791466839155_n

Now, what if you, our authorities and leaders were thinking like that?

1: They would make sure the citizens get the funding meant for them, build schools from the money corrected from tax and donors and not put that in their pockets.

2: They would make sure they stop bosses from trying to steal or receiving corrupt money just to make them keep quite.

3: They would make sure their salaries and allowances acquired reflect well according to their job and the salaries of the citizens.

4: If a police man tries to collect a bribe from, you will trear him as a sinner. You would save him by not corrutping him.

Public Office has failed to be a public trusted office. The main reason is because we have moved away from the love of Christ.

if any leader  does not submit to another leader who is fighting corruption, he himself will give up to corruption. But the question becomes who watches the president. A true president should submit to other leaders, to authorities and mostly God. The Bible says God controls leaders as he does with streams of waters. So leaders need to acknowledge in word and deed.
