Evading Consequences And Judgment Day

As I was reading this American Thinker article by Daniel John Sobieski this morning, I focused on the following statement in the article:

"For every bad choice Bill Clinton made, he tried to evade any consequences, not by owning up, but lying."

There you have it, folks. A former President of the United States, through his own choice, "tried to evade any consequences." And worse than that, his wife tried to cover-up his affairs with multiple women because of political gain. And we wonder why the moral ethics of our country has gone out the window.

What is this phrase, "tried to evade any consequences" telling the young people in our country? What kind of an example is this setting? Our young people are thinking that if our nation's highest political office holder can get away with evading any consequences for having multiple illicit liaisons (see definition #3), plus lying in the process, then they can get away with such illicit liaisons and lying as well.

Beloved, we can "try" to evade consequences for our actions in this earthly existence. And like our former President, we may even avoid those consequences, temporarily at least. However, "God will not be made a fool" (Galations 6:7-8 NET). There's a payday coming on Judgment Day when the actions of all people will be judged by and in the light of God's word (John 12:47-48; Romans 14:10-12; 2 Corinthians 5:10; cf. Hebrews 4:11-13; Acts 17:30-31 NET).

Rest assured that the evading of any consequences for sinful behavior and any cover-ups for such behavior, will come to a dramatic end on that day.
