Politics, as usual?

By Paul Stanley

October 21, 2016

Well, after 17 years in pastoral ministry I spoke of politics and an election for the first time last Sunday. It is on this site if you are interested. I did my best to be objective and party neutral although I was accused afterward of the opposite.

I thought about it quite a bit afterward and talked to the Lord about it and He drew a few things to my attention that I would like to share with you:

1. No matter how much truth you speak, no matter how much evidence you give, no matter how much scripture you quote, there will be those who are so convinced of their party's views that they will never listen to you, even if they identify as Christian. It is a form of idolatry. They are ever hearing, but never understanding. Ever seeing, but nor perceiving. There is not much you can do about it.

2. EVERYONE is sinful, including me and you and whoever else is out there. Sin distorts how we see the truth and how we hear the truth and most certainly how we live in the light of the truth we perceive. If a person knows Jesus, we should be able to expect them to reflect that in the way they live and yes in the way they vote. But sin seems to always get in the way, and just as sin creates dysfunctional families, it also creates dysfunctional nations and churches. There is not much you can do about it.

3. More and more as we wait for the Day of the Lord, things will get worse and people who seemed to be on the right path, and most assuredly people who do care about what path they trod, will increasingly follow other people and ideas that boggle our mind and just as much as we cannot understand why they would think that way, they will be so deceived they will scratch their own heads and wonder why we cannot see their way. There is not much you can do about that either.

But I know someone who CAN do something about it and His name is Jesus! We need to remember to be in constant pray over this election, over this country and certainly for the people. Moreover, pray for the Christians who carry unbiblical views into their politics. They have a great opportunity to help change and guide this great nation of ours, but if we are not walking closely with Jesus, and not teaching in our churches and in our homes how to be biblically guided,  Christian worldview people, God will give us what we ask for, and it may not be pretty. Now, more than ever, we need a 2 Chronicles 7:14 church!
