Over the last few weeks the political bullying and screaming has died down from my Facebook and Twitter. Most of what I see now is just the intermittent statements of how the world is now saved because Obama is president, or how the world is now doomed now that Obama is president. But which is true? They can’t both be right can they? The truth is they are both wrong. I would even say that the less hyperbolic statements of the United States being saved or doomed because of who was elected are wrong as well. I think sometimes we forget that we do not live in a democracy or a republic. Neither does China live in a communist society. The truth is, the whole world lives in a theocracy. I know it doesn’t look at like it because we all seem to govern ourselves differently, but the truth of the matter is that is only because Christ has allowed us to choose our systems of government. “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me,” Matthew 28:18. Now I don’t know how much research you’ve done on the word all, but basically it means…all. And when he says in heaven and on earth, I don’t know that there is anything else. So basically what that means is all authority everywhere belongs to Jesus, our brother. So what does that mean? It means we need to worry less about the choices of man, and more about what he said after he told us all authority is his. “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age,” Matthew 28:19-20. I think if we had 1/8 of the passion about this that we did about how this temporary government ran, the world would look different. The government isn’t supposed to save the world, YOU ARE. Become the Target!
