A simple question
So why do so many religious conservatives rely on the government to bring about God's Kingdom?
Isn't that the church's job? Has the church lost its influence that we need to focus on politics to save us? Isn't politics naturally corrupting anyways? Are we, the church, simply passing the buck? How much time and money has been spent on these Justice Sundays and all the religious 'get out the vote' campaigns and groups to back certain Supreme Court nominees?
Sure that stuff is important, but we as a church have lost our focus. At the very least we're turning off a lot of would-be Christians who look at the vitrol being spewed out and write us off as wack-jobs.
I pray, just like they did in the Simpson's last night (Bart and Homer turns Catholic, Marge and the Protestants won't have it, huge fight, then "why do we fight over the stupid small things we disagree on when we can work together on the stupid big things we agree with?") that we can get over our differences and work to further God's Kingdom through the church.
Cuz that's Biblically based.
