This is for all of my friends out there who are still freaking out a bit since the election.
I know that many of you are disappointed, but you have begun to move on. You have begun to pray and you continue to trust the sovereignty of God – which is a good thing.
There are some who can give a rip – to you I say – you should give a rip.
And then there is the rest of you. Oh the rest of you.
Let me give a little perspective. You may think that its the end of the world now that Obama is the President elect, but what’s the worst thing that happens? The church gets persecuted and the country goes to hell in a hand basket?
To my knowledge – mostly do to the study of church history as well as some persecuted countries today – it is in times of persecution that Christ is seen in beautiful contrast – it is in times of persecution that the church actually becomes united and *gasp* even grows. But hey, what does church history know? I mean those Chinese believers – well it’s just a fluke -same for those in Afghanistan, Indonesia, Congo, and Venezuela. No, no, your right – America is the only hope of the world. I mean that’s why so many of these persecuted countries are sending missionaries over here right? And sheesh, if it ushers in the return of Jesus – well that’s just down right unacceptable.
Relax – Fear God and nothing else.
You might also find it therapeutic to go listen to REM’s It’s The End of The World As We Know It. Although you and I both know the only part besides the chorus you sing along with is when it says Leonard Bernstein.
