3 The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the perversity of the treacherous will destroy them. 4 Riches do not benefit on the day of wrath, But righteousness rescues from death. 5 The righteousness of the blameless will smooth his way, But the wicked will fall by his own wickedness.
In a world of sin, the wealthy and powerful can do the evilest wicked crimes, because they have the funds and means to make their desires happen. Perverse crimes easy, when money is no limit, it is easy to get what you want and make others turn away or pretend nothing is happening. Ancient empires, like the Romans, would have children as sex slaves, not so much for pleasure, but as a way of humiliating in the most intimate ways. Perverted crimes seem to happen a lot, and recently, the wealthy, like filmmakers or even politicians, are the worse bullies. Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein are just a couple and they both have been destroyed one way or another. They both try to look like they had integrity, with their suits and neckties, but real integrity happens when what we do when we feel like we aren’t being seen, (publicly). Harvey Weinstein is and was very successful a producing major blockbuster films. With his wealth, he supports charities helping the poor, care for the sick, and also a big supporter of the politician like President Obama, and Hillary Clinton. He is a big supporter of gun control, but most of his movies, are very violent like Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, so his opinion in that matter is a double standard. Harvey was accused of many sexual crimes against many women in the film industry. As result, the filmmaking company he created, fired him, he was arrested, went to court, and now serving time. Jeffrey Epstein, was a financier, a broker, and very successful at banking, becoming very wealthy. With his wealth, he because a social elite, using his money to makes his perverted sexual desires happen. Most of the sexual crimes were with minors and he was alone, since he wanted to be a social elite, he has friends, like other wealthy businessmen, US Presidents, and royals of different countries. Sometimes and many times, someone who did something when they were younger might regret it later and report criminal activity. But Jeffrey Epstein had a lot of wild parties, cameras all over, eye witness would tell, and eventually, crimes and sins caught up to him. Because of his wealth, after was arrested, and locked up, but even under extreme security, he dies in the prison cell of a suspicious suicide. Being financially blessed does not help anyone buy righteousness, nor does it help anyone hide from his or her sins, every sin you or I do will find us. If you are a man or woman of God, live by His word, if it is hard, pray and ask others to pray, I know I need God’s help and need your prayers as well. God bless you all, Jesus the Savior loves and so do I, Samuel J H.
Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a person sows, this he will also reap. 8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will reap destruction from the flesh, but the one who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit. 9 Let’s not become discouraged in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not become weary. 10 So then, while we have an opportunity, let’s do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.
