I've just returned from a trip to Asia which I'll share about in future posts. But center stage this week is the Republican National Convention which demands some attention.
Why is choosing our government leaders so important? Because the Church and the State cast the greatest influence on culture and civilizations.
The Church is meant to be the salvific and prophetic voice in the world. When we lead people to Christ and teach people His ways, then nations experience the blessings of justice and freedom. When we "turn out the lights," evil takes its place.
Governments are designed to protect God-given rights and punish evil. Good governments bring peace and stability to society. Bad governments make the people "mourn" (Proverbs 29:2).
This week I'll share some thoughts on the Republican Convention and next week, the Democrats.
I now have one more reason to vote for Donald Trump.
