There’s no adequate political answer for our current situation. We need the answer that transforms the heart — the living Jesus. When “we” means all humanity, many of our problems will fade away.
Biblical Christianity has it’s own government. It is the invisible government of the living Jesus, known as the kingdom of God.
Pressuring people to go along with you may be political, but it’s not “making a deal.” Negotiation depends on respect, kindness, persuasion, and compromise, not on force.
Politics stirs things up. Why? Because peaceful words are rarely spoken by people who have no peace in their heart. To think that people who disagree with you are less intelligent or less sincere than you, is a great deception.
In a democracy, political power should be used to unify the nation. Instead, it’s frequently used to divide it.
Politics often stands firm when its feet are in the wrong place. That’s not an answer to life. Instead, we need to let the living Jesus realign our steps.
If we’d all be more concerned about making our personal wrongs right instead of trusting in our political views, we’d not have to be so concerned about our personal rights being wronged. When too many people believe they have to do wrong to protect their rights, violence is common place.
Political promises and slogans are no better than the honesty and integrity of the person on the ballot. No matter how famous or smart, that person is a mere human being. It takes humble politicians to put the interest of the people above their own interest, but humble politicians seldom get elected.
