WHEN THERE’S NO GOOD OPTION
The people of America will soon be voting for their new President. In life, we are sometimes faced with choices which offer us no attractive option. It is in times like those where we might use two filters to help us come to a responsible decision. Firstly, is there a third (and better) option? Secondly, if there is not a third option (a more attractive option than the two already presented), choose the lesser of two evils.
The American people may be faced with having to use the second these two filters. Last Thursday night our Home Group prayed for all Americans to be given the wisdom to know how to vote. We think that they’ll need it.
One of the reasons that America faces such a difficult choice with the Presidential election is perhaps due in part to a poor understanding of the interplay between Christianity and politics. Evangelicals fall largely into two camps – despair that this world is headed for judgment, or, triumphalistic expectations that the Gospel will Christianise the world including its governments. How a Christian views the ‘end’ determines which of these positions they are more closely aligned to, and then subsequently, how they engage in the political process.
And when it comes to teaching on some of the most difficult subjects, such as End Times, discover why thousands of pastors from around world have found the eBook, THE MOST EMBARRASSING BOOK IN THE BIBLE so helpful for them to understand what the Church’s role in this world should be amidst the shrill of so many Bible-Prophecy ministries which forecast doom and gloom. Check it out and you’ll see why. PREVIEW
