King Herod has his trophy. “Herod Himself sent for and seized John and bound him in prison because of Herodias, the wife of his brother, to whom he is now married.” John sits behind iron bars because it pleased Herodias. And Herod, ever wanting to keep the marriage bed secure has triumphantly brought home his bride’s nemesis. Such is the way of the kings of this world. For they are more concerned with the passions of their flesh and the security of their indulgences than the observance of truth and the laws of nature, ignoring therefore nature’s God.
