We generally have tried to avoid direct commentary on politics, and especially politicians, here on our blog. But given what appears to be an increasingly un-Biblical weight that many American Christians attach to the outcomes of our political processes, and the all-too-often harsh rhetoric that precedes and follows our election cycles, we have read and decided to share the two articles below that we believe put these important matters firmly into the light of Gospel-centered truth.
Fellow Christians, the kingdom that we live for is not of this earth. We are seeking and awaiting the kingdom to come, or better stated, that is coming. If we are to take the scripture at it's word, we must rest in the knowledge that our God is sovereign over every appointment and every decision of every elected official everywhere on this planet. So let's joyfully exercise our precious, blood-bought right to vote our consciences without fear of reprisal. But once that vote has been cast, as believers in the risen and victorious Lord of Creation, let's put our lives and destiny in the hands of the One who said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to to me". -Matthew 28:18
God bless America and God bless our President.
