The old saying that 'power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely" ...I was trying to remember who said it, when and why. I think it was political, but I am wondering if there is a Biblical application or source for it? If so, what does it mean to us as Believers? So far all I am finding is in Proverbs like 29: 4 The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever... 14 The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it. But they don't even seem to apply.
