You are advocating doing it without Him by pretending you know the right candidate or party! Why does God now need our help with anything? Does He not allow everything through His permissive will? Does He not use all for His plan and His Glory? If you were letting the Lord guide your vote you would not have written this article designed to prop up one party over the other! You would not have regurgitated untruths on behalf of that party!
"This is not about domesticating or politicizing Jesus into our perceived "cause." I am well aware that His kingdom is not of this world, and it is not an either-or polarity. It is a third way. But He loves righteousness and hates iniquity, and we should live the same way. As a preacher stated recently, don't fall into the trap of making an artificial divide between spirituality and politics. The devil is intensely spiritual, and he loves to infiltrate and possess media, entertainment, institutions of learning and politics to promote his evil cause and make the broad road to destruction even broader for our nation's people. Let's move toward where he is and let our salt and light be evident in this most critical midnight hour for our nation." -- Bert Farias
That nagging feeling you got Bert that led you to this mea culpa? It's called conviction. You most certainly are politicizing Jesus and you need to stop. You are presenting an either or polarity and you need to stop. We do not need an artificial divide between the things of heaven and the things of earth because the bible is our divide. You need to stop trying to mix them. The devil is far more interested with infecting Christians and the church and making them focus on the things of this world than he is with your seven cultural mountains. Being salt and light is critical only to bring people to Christ not your political goals. The key verses today speak about being light and it is so the lost can see your good works and give glory to God. Taking a polarized side politically automatically alienates over half the people from your message. Pretending however that your side is righteous when it is not? That destroys your witness for Christ and makes it obvious that you are a hypocrite.
