While bribery can be found in nearly every nation, western nations, like the United States and Germany, are actively creating legislation to reduce the impact of bribery and corruption in both their own nations, but also globally (Cleveland, Favo, Frecka, & Owens, 2009). Currently however, one of the problems of enforcing these laws are the vast differences in how each nation treats corruption and bribery. Griffiths (2016) calls from a more cohesive, approach to ending corporate bribery, stating “The disparity of bribery laws globally is blamed for creating a situation where it becomes untenable for companies subject to bribery laws to compete with those competitors who will suffer no sanction for offering a bribe” (p. 262). No matter the laws created on earth, our judgement by God is eternal, and the acts we commit, both immoral and righteous will be judge by the Lord. “God will bring into judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time to judge every deed.” (Ecclesiastes 3:17, New International Version).
