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!!
