I believe that the future of any nation is in the hands of God. I believe that it is far more important to be concerned about the welfare and goals of the kingdom of heaven, where I, by grace, am given my primary citizenship, than it is to worry about the fate of earthy governments and kingdoms.
I was deeply concerned to read a recent report that stated NORTH AMERICANS WHO ATTEND EVANGELICAL CHURCHES ARE MORE LIKELY TO APPROVE OF TORTURE of prisoners of war than those who at attend non-evangelical churches, those who do not attend church at all, or even those who do not even claim to be Christians! Given Jesus’ teachings about peace and nonviolence, I have to wonder whether such places of “worship” are drawing those who are attempting to impose political views on the body of Christ. I believe that true, Christ-centered living will result in the dynamic life of Christ and his values having its way, in our hearts and minds, with the kingdoms of earthly Babylon.
