We have a problem

Well, I know all the Republicans are upset with the recent election, but look at the bright side, now legislators must come up with really good legislation or President Bush will just veto it. Likewise President Bush must support really good legislation or the House and Senate won't pass it. My party at Boy's State was in a similiar situation when we won the Governor's seat, won majority on the Supreme Court, but lost the House of Delegates and Senate. The result, what got passed was A: really good bipartisan legislation or B: passed by such a majority it overrode the Governor's veto.

Anyway, regardless of the fact that Nancy Pelosi, a San Fransican liberal will be Speaker of the House (and right after the Vice President in line for the Presidency) God is still in control. I hear all the supposedly "Religious Right" people in panic mode right now. Well who is in control, God or the government? I'm not too worried, even if a bunch of Democrats control Congress God is still in control. Even though Bush is still in the White House God is still in control.

Sure, the religious right is all about faith when Republicans are majority, but as soon as Democrats take control the Bible Belt starts spouting unbelief like its going out of business.

Let me be frank, God is God regardless of the party in control. I'm tired of some people who are more conservative in political stance using God and the Church when it's convenient and ditching God and the Church when it's not convenient. If you don't realize this yet let me clue you in... the Church is being used by power hungry politicians that could care less about the Church as long as we continue to send our healthy 35% of voter their way. This mentality that the Republican party is the moral party is absurd, and sense we're being honest the Democrats aren't any better. We need to realize that political parties do not and are not going to represent the Church as long as the Church is told what it needs to preach by these politicians. The Church has in a very subtle way nearly given God His pink slip and elected the Republican party as His replacement.

You don't think so? Allow me to make a point. Lets say the Christian Church technically began on the Day of Pentecost, just a few hundred believers under the Divine direction and with the supernatural empowerment of Almighty God grow to many thousand and turn their world upside down within a few years, maybe less then that. The Church today, which worldwide supposedly numbers about 2 billion (2,000,000,000) can't get a thing done for the Kingdom. The only thing I hear about is how God used to move, and the great revivals that used to take place and all this stuff that used to happen. Well what's the problem? If the Apostles did it with a few hundred surely we could do it with 2,000,000,000. Yes, it could be done with 2,000,000,000. But we need to stop relying on the numbers to do it. How many men Gideon have to defeat the Midianite army? It was something like 300 against nearly 120,000. What's the differance between then and today? Gideon was counting on God to win the battle regardless of numbers. We're counting on numbers to win the battle and in doing so we've left God out, we figure if we can be important in a political party then that party will take care of us.

We have a real problem. It is past time to quit making our political party more important then God. God is a jealous God, and let me tell you something, you're either with God or you're not You can't be loyal to God and to the world. I'm not saying you can't be in a party, I'm saying you need to make sure that whatever party you're in you put God in charge, NO. 1.

Well, hopefully I rocked the boat a little bit today (which is a story I'll mention later). God bless! Let me know what you think!

Good to hear it from the States. The narrow and nationalistic agenda of the religious right is one of the most depressing aspects of American evangelicalism. I speak as one happy to go by that name but unhappy with the nonesense that is often spouted out in God's name.

keep writing!

I thank you most tremendously for the encouragement. I don't anticipate this will be well received by many of my acquantainces but it's nice to know someone agrees with me.

God bless you!
