I got this video from John Piper's blog and thought it was such a breath of fresh air about the upcoming election. I use to be the BIGGEST Republican! Seriously I've gone door knocking for my guy the past two elections. Over the past year or so I've really felt burdened about the divisiveness of politics and believe me this could only be a burden from God because I WAS totally wrapped up in politics. Let me first say, I'm totally against abortion... BUT I don't want to be ANTI-anyone because they belong to a certain party. Not that I will vote for someone that is for abortion but I really am turned off by those that slander someone whom they really don't know. I mean, seriously how in the world is God glorified through our spreading slanderous gossip or lies about someone. I can't stand to get those political emails that are based on half truths about EITHER candidate. I love how John Piper reminds us that this is not our home and we should not invest our whole selves into things of this world. I'm not against people rooting for their candidate or informing others about them but I am turned off by who I use to be in this area. I was totally invested as though if my guy didn't win the world was coming to an end.... this place is not my home and God is sovereign and I trust Him!
