Cultural Struggle

Christians in America are getting really wound up about the contest for the presidency. This is very, very sad.

The sad thing is that, although the struggle between the cultural conservatives and the cultural liberals is intense and uncompromising, it is a side show compared with the real struggle between the world and the Kingdom of God.

The really sad thing is that both you and they are fighting on the wrong side in the real struggle between the world and the Kingdom of God. Both Christian democrats and the Christian republicans are undermining the Kingdom of God by their compromise with the world system (Mark 10:35-44).

Talking to each other is not the solution. Both groups need to cast down their idols, so their eyes can be opened to a vision of the Kingdom of God.

Ron,

I'm going to write on this with a perspective I don't think you may have considered.

Watch.

I am not holding my breathe.

These are big idols, with powerful spiritual strongholds behind them.

YES!. You couldn't be more correct. That statement is apodictically true!
