Today, the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare. I have opinions for days on Obamacare and the role of the United States government in the role of its citizens lives. I have spent much time studying and forming opinions about how best the government operates and how what role it is to play in our lives according to scripture. But today, I am not here to talk about Obamacare. Old Ross would have done that, but not the new and improved version, but that’s another blog post as to why. If you ever want to have an off the record discussion about politics, I’m wide open, send me an email and I’ll stick it in my calendar.
I want to talk to you about how to see real change occur in our country and in the world. If you study movements in history, spiritual movements, social movements, they always come from the bottom up. Major social movements never start from the top and move their way down. They may eventually move their way down if they get in power, but they started small.
If you want to see real change in our country or in the world, IT WILL NOT COME FROM WHOEVER YOU VOTE FOR!!!! If it came from the top down, Jesus would have been a president, but He wasn’t. Don’t give into the political machine that feeds you about this person on the right or the left is going to be the savior of our country. It is a massive lie!
Isn’t it funny how every election is billed as the most important one. I hear it every year. If you want to see REAL CHANGE in this world, as a Christian, pray, reach the lost and make disciples. Why does it come this way? Because no government law has the power to change the hearts of men. Only Christ does that. When Christ changes hearts, then the laws of the land will reflect the reality of Christ in people’s lives. Give your life to what really produces change, the gospel and the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
I’m not here to make a political statement, just an exhortation for believers of Christ and leaders to put their hope in the right things.
