Psalms 7:9-11, 17 Amplified Bible
“Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, but establish the [uncompromisingly] righteous [those upright and in harmony with You]; for You, Who try the hearts and emotions and thinking powers, are a righteous God.
My defense and shield depend on God, Who saves the upright in heart.
God is a righteous Judge, yes, a God Who is indignant every day....
I will give to the Lord the thanks due to His rightness and justice, and I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.”
"The reason that Christianity is the best friend of government is because Christianity is the only religion that changes the heart."
by John Oxenham
To every man there openeth
A Way, and Ways, and a Way.
And the High Soul climbs the High Way,
And the Low Soul gropes the Low,
And in between, on the misty flats,
The rest drift to and fro.
But to every man there openeth
A High way, and a Low,
And every man decideth
The Way his soul shall go.
