The Sad State of our Election

November 3, 2008

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008. The day that good Americans, and thanks to ACORN, a few dead ones, head to the polls to cast their vote for the next President of the United States of America. I find it humorous, not laugh-out-loud humorous, but rather annoy-the-fire-out-of-me humorous, that so many Christians are in such dire straits over the election.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume that this post is going to garnish some more “dis-like” mail, or as one contributor to my trash can put it, “your-blog-makes-me-sick” mail, but I don’t really care a whole lot. I call them like I see them. I am going to speak very frankly…

I am sick and tired of the fact that many Christians are more passionate about advertising who they want to be president than they are about telling their neighbor who their Savior is.

Think about it this way. What stops the average Christian from opening their mouth and speaking about what Christ did for them? Is it persecution? Is it the death chamber? Is it water boarding? No. It’s simply this – what will my neighbor think about me then? We are afraid to lose face, so we don’t speak up, we don’t stand up when we are given golden opportunities.

But those same people will endure the mocking of co-workers, the screaming of family, angry tirades from total strangers at super markets. Their homes will be egged because they have a lawn sign up promoting one of the candidates, and they will view that as a badge of honor. Because of their political bumper stickers, they will find their car keyed. And yet, this merely motivates them to promote their guy more.

Imagine, just for a minute, what would happen if Christians would be as passionate when it came to the Gospel that saved them from the pit of despair. It’s hard to imagine that, because, as Rev. Henry Varley said, “The world has yet to see what God can do with one man wholly dedicated to Him.”

Sad.
