Would it be fair to say that every Christian should know both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are kind of the devil, and that it doesn’t take faith, hope, love, or courage to say so? It just takes partisanship or anarchy, the willingness to tell people bad news.
If so, wouldn’t the bold thing to do in this heyday of very recycled and highly predictable anti-[__________]-rhetoric be to use nounish sentences like “Jesus is Lord.” or tell people real news like “Jesus saves.” and “Jesus makes things new.”? We’ll all get a chance to make our statement in the voting booth. In the meantime, can we just be resolute not to get carried away in the mainstream current of a ‘gospel of Ecclesiastes’ without even including the last line of Ecclesiastes.
God is sovereign. Kingdoms rise and fall. Cast a vote, and make disciples of all nations. Jesus is coming back. Good News.
“The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.”
~ Eccles. 12:13-14
