Politics Is A False God

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY NOVEMBER 6, 2018

         IT’S ALMOST OVER – THE NONSTOP POLITICAL ATTACK ADS, THE ROBO CALLS, THE YARD SIGNS. AND THEN WHAT? MORE OF THE SAME. FIGHTING. CLAIMS THAT THE OTHER PARTY IS OR WILL RUIN THE COUNTRY. NAME-CALLING.

         POLITICS HAS BECOME LIKE A FALSE GOD. SO MANY OF US TURN TO IT IN HOPES THAT IT WILL IMPROVE OUR CONDITION. YES, THE ECONOMY IS ROARING AND UNEMPLOYMENT IS AT RECORD LOWS ACROSS ALL DEMOGRAPHICS. ALL OF THAT IS GOOD, BUT ONLY FOR A TIME. THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NOT OF THIS WORLD IS WHAT JESUS SAID. WHAT OF HIM IN ALL THIS?

         HERE IS SOMETHING THOMAS SOWELL HAS SAID: “THE FACT THAT SO MANY SUCCESSFUL POLITICIANS ARE SUCH SHAMELESS LIARS IS NOT ONLY A REFLECTION ON THEM IT IS ALSO A REFLECTION ON US. WHEN THE PEOPLE WANT THE IMPOSSIBLE, ONLY LIARS CAN SATISFY THEM, AND ONLY IN THE SHORT RUN.”

         SO TRUE. YES, GO VOTE TODAY. YOU SHOULD, BUT IF YOU WANT TO EXERCISE REAL POWER, PRAY THAT GOD WOULD INSTALL THE LEADERS HE WANTS IN OFFICE AND MORE THAN THAT; PRAY FOR REVIVAL. IT IS THE ONLY POWER THAN CAN CHANGE HEARTS AND NATIONS. POLITICS CAN’T. I’M CAL THOMAS.
