WOE unto them
that call evil good,
and good evil;
that put darkness for light,
and light for darkness;
that put bitter for sweet,
and sweet for bitter!
Has the State of Kentucky reached such a state of being that it cannot find any more CRIMINALS to prosecute … so that it must go after an Amish man who made HERBAL salves that have helped many and have hurt NO ONE?
Not only that, but the Federal Court of the State of Kentucky actually sentenced Samuel Girod to 6 years in prison for the heinous crime of …
not labelling his SALVE correctly !
We wish this foolishness were indeed a joke, but sadly, it reflects the state of justice at the highest level in Kentucky.
Sentencing was done on June 30, 2017, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader newspaper. See Link below.
However, this upright, law-abiding, CHRISTIAN MAN changed his labels as ordered even though he only used herbs like chickweed and bloodroot … and NEVER ANY DRUGS. Furthermore, he followed all the instructions laid down by the law, the law of the FDA.
Unfortunately for Brother Girod, he was dealing with agents who were NOT as upright and honest as himself.
When they started “investigating” his salve-making business, the agents came to his home to inspect the salve-making.
He agreed to open his door to them but told them ONLY if they brought no cameras . ( Against his religion.) They agreed. But upon arrival, they whipped out their cameras and took pictures.
So the next time they requested an inspection, he said NO. YOU LIED THE FIRST TIME AND BROUGHT IN CAMERAS.
According to the Kentucky Free Press, that is what brought about their vindictive, revengeful investigation of this peaceful, law-abiding citizen.
Read the whole story… including the official list of indictments… here. This article also explains Sam Girod’s “side” of the story , showing his compliance with the government officials and the frame-up that was worked against him.

It is BEYOND COMPREHENSION that men who have had years of academic learning and decades of training in the law have demonstrated such a poverty of understanding of basic RIGHT vs WRONG.
Even a school boy would be able to ascertain what was the moral and right thing to do. Even a child in elementary school IN KENTUCKY would be able to say: ” The men who lied did a bad thing. “
It is a SHAME to allow such men … men who cannot ascertain what is right , fair, and good to continue to hold public office.
Taxpayers are PAYING for them to make UPRIGHT decisions… not to afflict upright citizens with their own twisted idea of the law.
Whatever “law” it is they follow, it is NOT the Law of Righteousness.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Is The LORD GOD standing idly by and watching all these things ? NO. HE+ is ever present with His+ servant, Sam Girod. HE+ will bring about his vindication in due season, and YOU CAN COUNT ON THAT.
But, as those servants of satan have chosen to afflict Brother Girod, The LORD GOD will choose to afflict them … and that without mercy, for they touch the apple of HIS Eye when they touch one of HIS little ones who know HIS+ Name and honor HIM+.
It would be VERY good for them to repent. They have earned for themselves a bed of thorns in this life… and a much worse thing , in the next.
Let us agree in prayer that their sin-filled eyes will be opened to the Truth , that they may repent before it is too late. In the Name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, we agree in this prayer, O Most HIGH.
