Human value of people vs God’s value of people

The whole chapter of II Peter 2 is valuable to read.  But for the purposes of this post, some scriptures will be highlighted.

II Peter 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.


II Peter 2:18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.


Politicians will promise  of “goodies”, “great swelling words of vanity”,  for political gain.  It is known that politicians buy votes by creating policies that give away “free stuff” in order to incentivize people to vote for them.

They promise “liberty”; they appeal to the “lusts of the flesh”.   For examples, some politicians seek to curry favor with those who depend on the welfare system by promising to impose high taxes on the productive citizens who work and discipline themselves  to create a profitable business, generally with much hard work and sacrifice, to give to those who want to do nothing but simply live off of the efforts of others.  It is an attempt to codify theft into law and one of the Ten Commandments is “Thou shalt not steal.”

Politicians want to break up the family, castrate the men, remove them from their God-given position in the home, encourage promiscuousness, fornication, and adultery because that creates a lot of single women households with children who become dependent on the government and welfare to subsist.   Money is given for having children out of wedlock which encourages men to break the laws of God and women to break the laws of God for monetary gain.   And corrupt politicians expect those votes.

The curse, the sin nature, the result of the sin nature, becomes woven into society through its laws and through godless politicians who enact them for profit, for themselves, for the industries they serve, through lobbyists who push on the lowest denominator in mankind to get what they want through.

It is a complex weaving of sin and iniquity into the very threads of society.

These politicians promise “liberty”,  however, Jesus said “you will know them by their fruits”.  Look at those states and cities where the fullness of this corruption exists, where the seeds have grown to fruition, and decide whether these policies lead to life and prosperity or death and destruction.  You don’t need a Ph.D. to figure it out.    You have the ability to see if something is working or not working.

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.


So here is a new level of “bait and switch”.  Now that the politicians have corrupted the immigration laws and refused to enforce them, here is a new idea that is being “floated” to see if there is pushback.  They are floating the idea that you become nothing more than some digital money to monetize government.  Actually, this scheme has already been around.  It simply is coming to the surface where more can see it.


That is the value that government would put on people.  Uninformed people look to government as some kind a saviour.  Government looks at people as something they can monetize.  This operates in the Babylonian system. [emphasis added below]

Revelation 18:13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.

14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,


It is worth reading all of chapter 18 in the book of Revelation, the last book in the Bible.

In contrast, this is the God’s view of the value of men whom he created.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.


I Peter 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
