Scripture: Romans 1:22, Matthew 24:4
Every election, we view two types of Christians. The kind that are invested and engaged politically, and the kind who completely separate their politics and culture from of their spiritual life. The impact of this stance breeds worldly ideas, troubling laws and a view which when germinated brings decay to generations and erodes godly living. Some offer their reasoning as to why Christians should not get involved. It’s unfortunate that many pastors talk about the spiritual but avoid talking about how the spiritual should be applying to the physical. In the November 2020 election, we had leaders, some theologians and even friends voice with a straight face that annoying, harsh tweets were a more serious affront to God than the millions of babies sacrificed to idols of convenience and profit on the altar of abortion. How upside down our world is when someone who supposedly loves God can say something like that with a straight face? Has the foundation for our spiritual/moral structure really declined to this? This spiritual polarization highlights Jesus’ greatest end-time warning from Matthew 24:4, ‘Beware lest you be deceived!’ Judgment will no doubt have to begin at the house of God.
