Candidates and Caucuses and Speeches... Oh my!

It's time, I guess. For many who are more politically-minded it's probably past time, but I'm just now trying to wrap my mind around the presidential race... candidates and caucuses, primaries, polls, and platforms... Just when I think I like one candidate, another one makes a great point and I think I might like him better. (Yes, I said "him.";) You certainly won't read any Deep Political Wisdom on this blog, unless of course it is me quoting someone else!

I'll start today with a GREAT quote I read on Al Mohler's blog regarding this whole thing. The entire post is worthy of a read, but I particularly loved this part:

"The rhetoric of the race -- and the rhetoric of many evangelicals -- is disturbing. This race is important and necessarily so. We are talking about the next President of the United State, after all. But evangelicals have invested far too much hope in the political process. No government can make people good, transform humanity, or eliminate sin. The political sphere is important, but never ultimate. Jesus Christ is Lord -- and He will be Lord regardless of who sits in the Oval Office."

Amen and amen!!

I am so with you on the choosing process. My husband and I were talking the other night about who we should consider voting for and like you he gave me three that have said things he likes and have different strengths and weaknesses. But I like this quote, what a great reminder.

I'm with you and Chris Cyndi. It all gets rather confusing - and discouraging. Thank you so much for this inspirational reminder. I heard Dr. Dobson say something along those lines weeks ago. God is in control; He has a plan, and it will come to pass - regardless of the plans of man. I am so very thankful for that.

Thanks so much for this quote, Cyndi. I've often has similar thoughts to Mohler's. I'm going to e-mail this quote to my husband. A political animal, he'll appreciate it too.

Blessings on your day!

Wonderful quote to share! The political process can be so overwhelming to take in at times.
