I’ve heard a couple of interviews with politicians and/or their representatives and they have said outright and inferred that they can’t tell you what they really believe. If they told us what they really believed they believe they would lose votes. I think they all do it. I don’t care if you’re a democrat or republican or if the politician is, there is something unethical about misleading the public. I believe the president is having the government withhold all kinds of stuff and he himself is waiting to do things that will make a lot of people mad until after the election. And I don’t think it’s much different whoever is in the white house. All politicians worry about is being elected.
And today’s blog isn’t so much a political commentary as it is a Christian one. I believe we in the church do the same thing. We so want to be popular and for people to like us that we dilute the Gospel, we bring Jesus down to be on par with other religions’ gods, and we worry about hurting feelings so we don’t mention sin. My sermon today is on this very topic. Peter spoke truth in love, but it was a hard truth.
What we are missing in our politicians and in our churches are the difficult truths.
For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. ~ 2 Timothy 4:3
