American Polarization

by | Nov 4, 2020 | Meditations

An unjust man is abominable to the righteous, and he who is upright in the way is abominable to the wicked (Pro 29:27).

I am not saying that one politcal party is sinful versus the other party as not sinful. Nor am I saying that the Lord is on one side of a particular party and not the other. What I am saying is that if you look at the nation’s political landscape in the general categories of: lawlessness versus upholding our system of law, killing of children in the womb (or just thereafter) versus general pro-life, the preeminence of all forms of fornication versus the eradication of our nation’s freedom of religious practice, and the irrelevancy of our constitution versus support of the constitution as it was written; then, you have polarization.

No one in the media is framing our nation’s political landscape in these terms. Regardless of who occupies the White House, our responsibility as believers is to continue walking (yes, picking up the pace) in light of the New Testament, for here we have no continuing city (Heb 13:14).
