Governments can be corrupt

Today, God’s Word shows us that even in the most vaunted institutions, evil still prevails:

Ecc 3:16  I also noticed that under the sun there is evil in the courtroom. Yes, even the courts of law are corrupt!

When we read this, we should keep in mind what Paul tells us in Romans 13, that we should still submit to authorities, because those Government’s were put there by God, so this by no means is encouraging a rebellion against institutions that God has put in place.  

Having said that though, in our evil human nature, the most high fallutin’ falluters in society can still succumb to sin, and history has shown us this.   Whether it is a crooked official today, or a bribed judge back when Solomon spoke on the subject.  Courtrooms and governments can fall into the pit of corruption.  

While man’s judgements can be far from perfect, we should be wary that God’s judgement is indeed perfect.  As Paul says; the wages of sin is death, but thankfully Christ takes that weight of sin away from us that He paid for with His death on the cross, but the only way to be pardoned from that sentence is to confess and submit to Jesus as Lord.
