“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.” —Luke 2: 8-9 (The King James Version)
And I have read several dozen books about “whistle-blowing”—the all-too-uncommon event where an individual bucks the pressures to conform and the demands that he or she suspend his or her personal ethics and reveals questionable practices that are normally hidden by secrecy and silenced by the hard-to-resist bribery of institutional approval and financial reward. It's not surprising that pushing against the system that pays your salary is so rare. Truth-telling, particularly if it goes against the grain of the institutional ethos and contradicts the party-line, can take a lot of courage—and have a lot of unpleasant consequences.
Dear Richard,I am writing this letter because I have a message for you. In every system God puts someone to break the system. You are the one God put in the system. How do you break the system? By not going along with it. You will be challenged to do something that is wrong and against your system. Stand up for right and God will be with you. This is the time to stand up and be counted.God’s plan is for everyone to experience the good way and the bad way and then choose which way you want to go. The good way promises nothing and gives you everything. The other way promises everything and gives you nothing but despair. God is for everyone. The other way benefits no one.God knows that you can do it. You have been tested many times and have come through for good ways. God knows that there are good teachings mixed in with bad teachings and we are confused. That is why He sends a guardian angel when we are in a bind. We know that fear knocks out God and this is what will be used on you. When you feel this coming on, ask for God’s help. He will send help from above. A guardian angel.You will be opening the door for good ways to come in and the young to come in and help. They are strong in God and will show us the way.We will be rooting for you to come through. We love you for hanging in there when the going gets tough. As the saying goes, when the going gets tough, the tough get going.God bless you and take care of you. We will be praying for you. Pray that God’s way comes through.
