For the first time in my adult life, I don’t like either candidate that the major parties have put forward for the office of President of the United States. I see harm than good coming from either candidate being elected to that office. I wish we could have a do-over for the primary elections, but alas we cannot.
I tend to hang with people who to reformed theology, which emphasizes the sovereignty of God over his creation. This should not be too surprising given that I attend a PCA church. But one of the struggles that I have with such people is that sometimes truth is given in a way that is hardly helpful.
Whether you are elated or depressed about the result of the election, it is good to keep in mind that politics cannot solve the problems we face. The church is not, nor should it be a political institution.
Daniel is an example to us of one who was steadfast in the midst of social and political turmoil. In this election season we can learn from him.
