Ever since Adam and Eve, there is no shortage of corruption in the world. Not only as notoriously in politics and governments, but in every arena of human activity. God has countermeasures that go against the current in this stream, and his measures bring about goodness. That’s the Fruit of the Spirit. A vital and vibrant connection with God, generated by the Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ, mediated to us in Word and Sacrament, is productive in an outcome of goodness and integrity in our thoughts, our words and our behavior.
