Let there be no double standard

“You have heard that it was said to them of old time, ‘You shall not make false vows, but shall perform to the Lord your vows,’ but I tell you, don't swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is the throne of God; nor by the earth, for it is the footstool of his feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. Neither shall you swear by your head, for you can't make one hair white or black. But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘no.’ Whatever is more than these is of the evil one." (Matthew 5:33-37)

"A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every worthless word they have spoken." (Matthew 12:35-36)

See to it that truth is not lacking; lest anyone who hears and desires to turn away from evil will make himself a prey. It displeases the Lord to see no justice. (Ref.: Isiah 59:15)

Let there be no double standard; let justice be applied to everyone. As truth is demanded from one public official, let truth be demanded from everyone in public office.

Judgment for one is judgment for all. By the judgment we made through our representatives in the House of Congress acting as Judges for the people, we are judging ourselves as a nation. The Lord has put us in a rare situation to judge for ourselves our very own collective selves. Like the church, a nation is a body of people and each individual is a member of the body. One member's ailment or disfunction affects the entire body. Therefore it is foolish for other members of the body to condemn another ailing or disfunctioning member -- they should not forget that they only belong to the same body and it is only the same one blood that flows and circulates throughout all of the members.
