Character is the backbone of the soul

“Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation tend days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.” Revelation 2:10 NKJV.

Tested, peirazo, Strong’s # 3985. To explore, test, try, assay, examine, prove, attempt, tempt. The word describes the testing of the believer’s loyalty, strength, opinions, disposition, condition, faith, patience, or character. Peirazo determines which way one is going and what one is made of.  Tested in a good sense John 6:6; 2 Corinthians 13:5; Heb. 11:17 and in a bad sense Matthew 16:1; 22:18; 1 Corinthians 10:9.

A current example of the latter is found in the cesspool of our highly payed branches of organized government the Kleptocracy.
