Nature of Politics

The vehement and angry argument going on between Christians about Donald Trump is disturbing. It reveals the nature of politics

Politics has winners and losers, so it always leads to division.

Politics accentuates fleshly behaviour.

Politics sometimes appears to do good, but it always leads away from the Kingdom of God. His Kingdom cannot be extended by political power.
Politics relies on coercion and force, and these are anathema to the Kingdom of God.

Political power massively amplifies the authority and power of the spiritual powers of evil that gain control of kings and governments (principalities and powers). This is why human governments always demand more and more power and ultimately becomes evil.

I cannot understand why Christians obsess about political power, when they have such a wonderful gospel. The Kingdom of God is much better news.
