Growing up in Dallas, the buckle of the Bible belt, I’ve heard all kinds of things about the state of our nation. I’ve heard everything from it’s going to Hell in a hand-basket with Obama leading the way (and Clinton before him), to us desperately needing to fight back about redefining marriage, to people really not caring what happens politically as long as it doesn’t bother them. Perhaps the most daunting statement is that Satan is trying to destroy America. There’s just one problem with that.
Satan doesn’t care about destroying America
For months now, we’ve all heard of the absolute importance of electing Romney as President. More importantly, we’ve heard of the necessity of electing Obama out of office. Now, I understand the reasons why people think this is important, and I agree with some of them. It’s generally a bad idea to condone abortion. And we shouldn’t be as accepting of same-sex relationships as we tend to be. I fall in line with these beliefs not because they are based in conservative moralism or nationalistic pride, but because these truths are based in Scripture.
Anyone who knows me knows that I don’t really keep up with politics all that much, but a few things I’ve seen lately have just bothered me. Primarily, the latest fiasco concerning the rape and abortion comments made by Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock.
Kevin DeYoung’s post today ties in well with the Gospel and Politics series we just finished, so I thought I’d share it with you.
