Do more laws and higher taxes help especially when our leaders spend tax payer funds foolishly and extravagantly?
When leaders make immigration a hot political issue but do not simply enforce laws already in existence.
When the same officials call for more gun laws but do not enforce laws already made.
It is the same in Christian circles, for example most liberal churches have excellent statements of doctrine and beliefs of faith but do not now follow.
There are previously effective ministries/organizations/missions who have excellent guidelines of conduct and policies of ministry and advancement but even the leaders do not follow as they are now in authority and do what they want.
"A man who wonders from the way of understanding will rest in the assembly of the wayward."(Proverbs 21:16).
