Is there a political cost for adultery? December 5, 2008

Posted by christianworldviewtraining in Uncategorized.

The latest political buzz is about what role, if any, former presidential candidate John Edward will have in the Obama administration. Earlier he had been mentioned as a possible candidate for Attorney General. As of today, though, it does not look like he will have any role at all. The problem is Edward’s admission of adultery and the bad press that followed. Not only did he commit adultery, but he lied about it for a lengthy amount of time.  Proverbs 5:22-23 talks about the cost of adultery.”The evil deeds of a wicked man ensnare him; the cords of his sin hold him fast. He will die for lack of discipline, led astray by his own great own great folly.” Edwards is a professing Christian. With the confession and repentance, he can be restored and even his marriage can be saved. However, the truth of the Bible rings true again- there is a cost to sin. And in this case it may cost Edwards a prestigious post in the Obama administration. Key things to think about.

1. Should admitted adultery be reason to not hire someone to a prominent political position? What about a highly visible business position.

2. If you were the president Obama and thought he was the most qualified person for the job, would you appoint him, despite the admitted adultery?
