Religion and Politics
Three things to keep in mind as we prepare for what appears to be another political log jam between now and Thanksgiving:
- God's agenda is not tied to any political party or nation. God's people pre-date democracy and will outlive it as well.
- It is not safe to have any conversation -- especially a political conversation -- without reminding yourself that the ground is level in the shadow of the cross. We're all morally bankrupt people at some level, and none of us has achieved omniscience.
- Christians involving themselves in politics must take into consideration the whole counsel of God -- not just one or two pet issues. Abortion is evil. So is poverty.
