Whistle Blowing that Backfired
by Rick Boxx

Bradley Birkenfeld, a former Swiss banker, gave U.S. authorities enough information to potentially convict thousands of wealthy US citizens of tax fraud. Although he approached U.S. authorities on his own, and helped crack the mysterious accounts in Switzerland, Mr. Birkenfeld is the only one in prison.
He fingered thousands of tax evaders, but, for some unknown reason, he didn't disclose his relationship and activity with his largest account. Due to this lack of disclosure he is now in prison.
Paul taught in 2 Timothy 2:15, "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth."
To correctly handle the word of truth we need to be forthright with the whole truth.
