Ever since Adam first sinned in the Garden of Eden, mankind has been involved in one scandal after another.
Psalm 36:1-4 states:
Transgression speaks to the wicked
deep in their hearts;
there is no fear of God
before their eyes.
For they flatter themselves in their own eyes
that their iniquity cannot be found out and hated.
The words of their mouths are mischief and deceit;
they have ceased to act wisely and do good.
They plot mischief while on their beds;
they are set on a way that is not good;
they do not reject evil.
It seems that the further America turns from God, the more those verse describe today’s America.
Fox News – From Russia probe to sexual-abuse allegations, 9 political scandals that rocked 2018 – From politicians losing their positions over sexual-misconduct allegations to concerns of voter fraud in multiple midterm elections, 2018 was not without its share of political controversies.

In December, Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to charges of tax evasion, campaign finance violations and lying to Congress about a Trump real estate deal in Russia. Ahead of his sentencing, Cohen blamed his actions on “blind loyalty” to Trump, which he said led him “to take a path of darkness instead of light.” He told the judge he felt it was his duty to cover up the president’s “dirty deeds.” …
Fox News lists 9 scandals, but most of you can probably add another 10 or so without a lot of thought as the news has been filled with so many scandals that it’s hard to keep track of them all or count them.
The first one that comes to my mind is how the mainstream media continues to be negative and push fake news when it comes to President Donald Trump.
What about Facebook and the way they became super aggressive in silencing conservatives and how Mark Zuckerberg lied to Congress about protecting the privacy of Facebook users?
The sad part is, until America, our leaders and the people repent of their wicked ways, get on their knees and pray to God for forgiveness and seek after His ways, scandals will continue to be part of life.
