If you know me, then you know that I am not the political type of girl. I’m probably the worse kind of American when it comes to government and the awareness of such things. But, I’ve done I’m fair share of reading blogs and overhearing the news and listening to what’s being spoken around the water cooler to know that this election really kind of sucks!
The issues I’m having with this is the Christians that are trying to claw their way into the political scene. They’re trying to make laws that everyone in the nation has to abide in. Hmmmm…. this sounds an awful like a group of people that Jesus wasn’t too fond of. All around the States, there has been sermons of the Nation being doomed. This is actually been a sermon that has been preached since the dawn of this Nation. But somehow, church leaders are saying this is different this time.
What needs to be redefined is the separation of church and state. Church leaders are trying to get laws passed that are a part of our Christian doctrine. Forcing people who aren’t Christians to live by Christian law. What Christians need to accept is that we are counter-cultural. We are not mainstream. We should embrace this! Once we accept this, we can come together and pray for our leaders of the Nation and the Church.
If you are against abortion, don’t get an abortion. If you are against same-sex marriages, don’t get married to someone of the same-sex. Am I saying that we should just lay down let Christianity be in the background? Not at all! We need to more than ever show the world our light! We need to let people know there is a way to a fulfilling and joyful life! We need to help others and spread the Good News at the same time! We need to make our God proud of His children.
About a month or so ago, we had a message from God at our church. It was translated into that He will win this Nation again. What God promises, God delivers. So, are we supposed to sit back and just say “Well, God said He will win it. So, we’ll just let Him get to it.” Uh. No. We are stewards to His people. We are to go out and spread the Good News. We are to help the sick, poor, and dying We are show the world that Christians are doing what the Lord set us out to do when He blessed His first disciples. He will win this Nation but only with our help. With our prayers. With our love of ALL mankind. Only then, will our Nation begin to heal again.
