This election will be decided in a handful of states and mine is not one of them. Louisiana Christians in particular would be better off spending the time and energy promoting Jesus as the only solution to what ails us and preparing for the awful situation which will prevail in this country when the election is over.
Going to the polls this November will be like going to a Saints game; we should be wearing bags over our heads to avoid being identified. A recent Fox News poll found that 57% of voters say that fear that the other candidate might win is behind their choice. In other words, most voters are voting against someone instead of for someone. It’s not just that we don’t like the opposition. We are actually fearful of what they will do. After the election, we will be more sharply divided than ever. We will have a President that most did not really wanted. More than a third of us will believe the new President isn’t honest or trustworthy. More than half of us will have a negative opinion of our new leader. Many of us will be in fear of what our government will do next.
What a golden opportunity. Maybe at last Americans will start to see that government isn’t the answer. Like after 9/11, maybe many of us will retreat to our churches and turn to God. Someone needs to be ready to give answers, to explain how Jesus advised us not to fear and to give Caesar what is Caesar’s and God what is God’s.
We need to be prayed up and pumped up. Every disaster is an opportunity and no matter who wins, disaster is coming in November.
