Politics Is A False God

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY NOVEMBER 7, 2018

         AS I RECORD THIS COMMENTARY IT IS TUESDAY AND VOTING IS STILL TAKING PLACE. I HEAR STORIES OF HOW CHRISTIAN LEADERS HAVE PRAYED FOR THIS ELECTION AND THAT’S GOOD, BUT IF THIS ELECTION DOESN’T TURN OUT THE WAY YOU WERE HOPING, DOES THAT MEAN GOD WAS DEAF TO THOSE PRAYERS? 

         NO, BUT WHAT IT MEANS GOD HAS HIS OWN PURPOSES AND HIS WAYS ARE NOT MAN’S WAYS.

         I AM READING EZEKIAL IN THE ONE-YEAR BIBLE. IN THAT BOOK IS GOD’S HARSH JUDGMENT ON THE NATION OF ISRAEL FOR ABANDONING HIS LOVE AND LUSTING AFTER FALSE GODS WHO CAN DO NOTHING FOR THEM.

         IS OUR FALSE GOD POLITICS AND POLITICIANS? ARE WE LOOKING TO GOD TO VINDICATE OUR POLITICAL BELIEFS, OR ARE WE SEEKING HIS GLORY? SIN HAS GRIPPED AMERICA AND NO POLITICIAN CAN REMOVE ITS GRASP. OUR IDOLS MAY BE MORE SOPHISICATED THAN THOSE OF ANCIENT ISRAEL, BUT THEY ARE IDOLS NONETHELESS. AND THE CHILD SACRIFICES EZEKIAL MENTIONS? DON’T WE DO THE SAME WITH 60 MILLION ABORTIONS AND COUNTING? 

         PUT NOT YOUR TRUST IN PRINCES AND KINGS, OR IN MORTAL FLESH THAT CANNOT SAVE. THAT’S GOOD ADVICE FOR ANY ELECTION. I’M CAL THOMAS.
