Can You Save the World with Your Vote? :: a letter to Church Folks

Dear church folks,

“So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men. For as through the one man’s [Adam’s] disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One [Jesus] the many will be made righteous. The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

– Romans 5:18-21

How was the problem of sin eliminated once and for all? By the creation of MORE laws and statutes? By voting against ‘select’ sins that aggravated God’s perfect Law? No… The problem of “transgression” was solved by the ‘abounding grace’ of God through Jesus Christ. In other words, CHRIST was (and is) the only solution….not a ballot, not an Amendment, and not a President.

So then, why do so many of you focus more on fighting this nation’s ‘transgressions’ when that fight was already won? Why is it that you think that you can “save this nation” by voting FOR or AGAINST one thing, or by “protecting the definition” of another, when the ONLY salvation lies in Christ? You want to introduce law to promote ‘righteousness’ when all you have to do is introduce Christ. The Law only INCREASES ‘transgression’, but the grace of God supersedes it.

Stop wasting your time “fighting for God” in a battle He’s already won. Stop pushing to fix problems He’s already provided THE solution to fix. People need Christ…not a ‘definition’ or a ‘ban’. Christ.

One thought on “Can You Save the World with Your Vote? :: a letter to Church Folks

  1. I never thought about it from this standpoint. Been viewing it from the “separation of church and state” vantage point, but seeing through the eyes of grace changes the focus and perspective.
