"The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, heaven without hell."

William Booth

The days I feel closest to God and filled with gratitude for my blessings and struggles are ultimately the days I want absolutely no part of this election.

All things considered, today's 'America the beautiful' more vividly resembles America incorporated. The sooner we understand, once and for all, that congress does not, in fact, work for (or answer to) we the people, the clearer today's world events become. I pray I'm wrong, but the actions and inactions of our 'elected' representatives make much more sense in light of such perceptions.

It's time to reapply our focus, and ultimately, our dependency. God may very well have chosen to build up by tearing down. Which side will we fall?

"It is often in the worst of circumstances when the Christian must affirm the unwavering faithfulness of God. By looking to Christ, who is acquainted with our sorrows, Christians can display mourning coupled with trust in the promises of God." – Alistair Begg

Our central mission is not to preserve a nation but to maintain our responsibility and loyalty in the preservation of truth. That is the mission that we can stake our lives upon.

The best way to be an influence on the world is through the sharing of the gospel. That must be the starting point of foundational truth for all other areas of life. Unless we know our sin and guilt we can never truly live. As I learn the hopeless cause for myself, my neighbor, and my country, I discover the greatest and most needful gift a man could ever receive.

"O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me." – John 17:25
