THE ROOT CAUSE OF CORRUPTION IN A CITY OR NATION

THE ROOT CAUSE OF CORRUPTION IN A CITY OR NATION:
Woe to the filthy, polluted, and oppressing city!
What is the causal factor that creates filth, pollution, and oppression in a city or government?
What is the root cause that creates an environment where government administrators roar like lions and judges hunt like evening wolves?
Let me clue you in on a spiritual principle!
Spiritual Authority leads Natural Authority. Two things create an oppressive atmosphere in a municipality:
– Light and treacherous prophets that betray the Word of God to make people comfortable.
– Polluted teachers that do violence to the law instead of being honest and clear about what God says in the Scriptures.
Corrupt and Lightweight SPIRITUAL leaders create the atmosphere of disobedience and stubbornness to correction.
Then, the atmosphere of rebellion, stubbornness and disobedience among NATURAL leadership leads to filthiness, pollution, and oppression among the people.
Zephaniah 3
1 Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city!
2 She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in the Lord; she drew not near to her God.
3 Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow.
4 Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law.
