A Choice Best Kept Between You and God Election Day

 

2Timothy 2: 23 Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.

 

Every year we face another election in this country that is supposed to be the "most important in our lifetime." Bluster aside; I do believe politically these elections become more important as we continue to head deeper into these end times. But what Christians often miss is that the reason they become more and more important is because time is running out on eternity. Jesus Christ is coming back for His church and with each passing day, the world heads towards an eternity apart from their Creator.

 

Inevitably this season routinely becomes about pursuing the ambitions of men in the temporal instead of a reminder of God and the eternal. Christians are looked upon by the world as intellectually inferior for 11 months out of the year; but October? That is when we have value to the world because we can cast a vote. And the world will stop at nothing to convince us that their candidate is the best Christian option available. They will drag out the social wedge issues to divide us against each other and rail against the sin du jour so we can somehow feel a bit better about our own failings as a people. I actually have no problem with advocating for the "lesser of two evils" as long as you do not lose sight of the fact that you are ultimately advocating for evil:

 

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Isaiah 5: 20

 

The sad truth is that neither political party cares about the cause of Christ. They care about power, greed, and control. Both parties. I do not want to discuss the virtues of either party because there is nothing of virtue in them. They do not have the things of God in mind but the things of men.

 

I can hear the Christo-political activists already complaining. Aren't we as Christians supposed to affect the culture around us? Absolutely. But how we do it is more important than the mere fact of doing it.

 

"You are the light of the world--like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. Matthew 5: 14-15 (NLT)
