Notes & Transcripts

In Feb 2014, the news surfaced, about Judge Ciavarella, who had sentenced, around 3,000 children to months of detention after they had committed minor infractions. This corrupt judge was later sentenced to 28 years in prison for accepting $2.2 million as a finder’s fee for the construction of a for-profit facility, the same facility to which he had been sending these 3000 so-called delinquents. Corrupt judges, like this one, do not fear God or man. –Jim L. Wilson and Marla Harper

However, the Bible indicates, that even a corrupt judge will respond to the persistent pleas of people.

Luke 18:1-8 (HCSB) He then told them a parable on the need for them to pray always and not become discouraged: (2) “There was a judge in a certain town who didn’t fear God or respect man. (3) And a widow in that town kept coming to him, saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ (4) “For a while he was unwilling, but later he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or respect man, (5) yet because this widow keeps pestering me, I will give her justice, so she doesn’t wear me out by her persistent coming.’” (6) Then the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. (7) Will not God grant justice to His elect who cry out to Him day and night? Will He delay ⌊to help⌋ them? (8) I tell you that He will swiftly grant them justice. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find that faith on earth?”
