Faith In What?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY OCTOBER 11, 2018

         HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY THE SECULAR PROGRESSIVES HAVE SO MUCH FAITH IN GOVERNMENT? THINGS ARE GOING WELL IN ALMOST EVERY CATEGORY THAT MATTERS AND YET THE LEFT CONTINUES ITS RELENTLESS PURSUIT OF POWER TO ADVANCE AN AGENDA THAT IS NOT EVEN IN THEIR OWN BEST INTERESTS AND IN MANY WAYS IS ANTI-BIBLICAL.

         WE WHO ARE CONSERVATIVE AND BELIEVE IN A KINGDOM NOT OF THIS WORLD THAT WILL LAST FOREVER; WE WHO ARE BELIEVERS WHOSE FAITH IS NOT ULTIMATELY IN PRINCES AND KINGS; WE KNOW – OR SHOULD KNOW – THAT THE WORLD AND EVERYTHING IN IT IS PASSING AWAY. WOULD YOU PAY A PAINTER TO FIX-UP A HOUSE THAT IS ON FIRE?

         THE DANGER FOR BELIEVERS IS THAT WE WILL FOLLOW THE LEFT IN THEIR FAITH IN GOVERNMENT, DIMINISHING THE GREATER POWER THAT IS OURS, A POWER TO CHANGE HEARTS, MINDS AND LIVES. NO POLITICAL POWER CAN DO THAT; ONLY THE POWER THAT COMES FROM THAT OTHER KINGDOM AND THAT OTHER KING, THE ONE WHO IS COMING AGAIN AND BEFORE WHOM EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW. I’M CAL THOMAS.
