Today in America, we have Christians that would set their moral beliefs aside to vote for a man for president because he is the same color they are, not because he had beliefs that align with their Christian faith. This s no different than in Jesus' day when the religious would go along with other religious leaders becasue of the the religious group that each of them were a part of. Think about it like this, why did Pontus Pilate offer up Jesus to be crucified? Because the "religious" people were calling for it ecause Jesus threatened their immoral lifestyle. To vote for someone because their skin color is the same as yours is racist, just like voting against someone because of the skin color is racism. We also have a Christian faith that is so diluted that it does not affect our worldview. What do I mean? If you say that you are a "Christian" and that faith is only strong enough to effect what you do on Sunday mornings then you have sadly decieved into thinking that you have a faith that can save your soul from hell. If you will look through the Sciptures, true faith, that saved a person's soul, was a faith that could not be relegated to a day of the week or a situation of life. True Biblical Faith, salvation, changed the person's whole life which in turn changed the things they done, they way they acted, the people that they befriended, and yes even the political leaders that would lead them.
So, where do we go from here? The Church needs to wake-up and start being the church again and Christian need to start training their children and grandchildren the ways of the Lord in such a way that they are "true" disciple of Christ and not Sunday believers. Deuteronomy 6:5-9 says it like this, "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." We as believers have got to get back to a faith that causes us to love the Lord with everything that is within us and we have to teach our children to do the same. God bless you and I pray that ne day God will bless America again!
