Something to chew on

John W. Whitehead at Razormouth has written something that should be required reading for Christians during an election year. It reflects some of what I've written before.

We spend too much time thinking that a political party is going to save the country. The Democrats won't do it, the Republicans have been a disappointment for the most part, and the horde of 3rd party candidates that have been courting Christians have no clout at all. We need to be concerned with how our nation is run; we need to make sure that the best candidate is elected. But we aso need to wake up to the fact that the only answer to society's problems is Jesus Christ.

Too many abortions? Christ can change peoples hearts, and lifestyles, so that abortion isn't needed anymore. That is the America I look forward to -- a nation where abortion doesn't happen, NOT because it's illegal, but because people don't need it anymore. Gay marriage got you upset? Christ can change lives -- I've seen it happen. Too much crime? More police aren't the answer; the Son of God is the answer.

If Christians would get off the sofa, and start putting some shoeleather to their prayers -- actually trying to make things happen, rather than wringing their hands and moaning about how "someone should do something", this nation would be in a LOT better shape. We say we believe that Christ has the power to change lives -- maybe we should start living like we believe that.

Until we do, nothing is going to change.
