Cheating

April 8, 2013

If Atlanta is going to lock up educators for cheating, the government leaders should be locked up for cheating people with needs, the homeless and the hungry. Why? They are cheating citizens by not responding to their needs. They came up with a solution to pay for a new dome (within one week) but failed to come up with a solution to help the needy.
In my opinion, they are just as guilty as the educators for neglecting their responsibilities. Everyone is guilty of some type of cheating, whether it is cheating on their spouses, cheating in school, cheating on their jobs (by texting, talking personal business on company phone), communicating on Facebook, reading or replying to personal emails, surfing the web, loafing at work, taking extended breaks, cheating on tax returns, using calculator while taking assessment tests, arriving late for church, forsaking the assembly of God, not taking care of your children, cheating on tithes and offerings.
Yet, Atlanta D.A. wants to make an example of educators; while neglecting the real problems. Cheating educators is not the only problem in Atlanta. What about the city government cheating the needy out of a decent life? I don’t see the D.A. going after them? If we enforce the same rule for everyone without regards to race, creed, color, gender, financial status, we would have a more equal state. If there is one rule for everyone, there won’t be any problems or misunderstanding. We encounter problems when we have different rules for everyone.
If we take a closer look at ourselves, we will find that “we are not as perfect” as we think we are. Yes, the educators should be punished (if found guilty) because they are cheating children out of an academic education. This is a “witch-hunt” spelled with capital letters. Prosecute all guilty parties and not some.
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it was better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matt. 18:6)
Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me. (Luke 18:22)
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)
So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. (John 8:7)
Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. (John 8:15-16)
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matt. 16:26)
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (Galatians 6:7)
