commentary: Betrayal of Trust
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 10-Jan-09; Sermon #918c; 11 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, reflecting on his wife's dream concerning a betrayal of trust, observes that in a very real way our own government and Congress are also betraying our trust. Henry Paulsen, for example, a former board member of Goldman Sachs, has been entrusted with overseeing an institution in which he formerly helped to destroy, making decisions that helped to scuttle our economy. Recently Congress passed an ill-advised EPA sponsored bill to take effect February 10 which will virtually cripple small business. Unfortunately, a tiny fraction of political leaders voted against this ill-advised measure. Like the victim of an adulterous affair, our trust in America"s elected political leaders, including the smooth talking but ill-informed president-elect, has been eroding on a daily basis.
