It’s election season. The debate is raging. Obama or Romney? Democrat or Republican? Who is the best? Who will save our country?
People are starting to get crazy about politics. One mention of the name Obama or Romney can set off a war.
Both candidates are painting themselves as the savior and the other guy as the enemy. The mudslinging is coming from both sides. Many see it as a battle of good versus evil. And if we aren’t careful, we start treating these presidential candidates like the only hope for America.
HERE IS A NEWSFLASH FOR YOU – NEITHER WILL SAVE YOU.
Obama is not the answer. Romney is not the answer.
Now, before you get upset and send angry emails, please hear me out.
I am not advocating one political party over the other. That is not what this blog is about. I have my opinions and you should form your own.
I am not saying that you shouldn’t care about the presidential race. I actually think this presidential race is very important for the future of the United States of America. Everyone should educate themselves on the issues. Everyone should vote.
HOWEVER, please don’t be so naive as to think that one man is the solution to all of our problems. If all our hope rests with one man, we are setting ourselves up for disappointment.
WHY DO I SAY THIS?
Because the Bible says it:
Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there. When they breathe their last, they return to the earth, and all their plans die with them.
– Psalm 146:3-4
One day these men will pass away, just like every other man before them. Their power has a shelf life. Their plans won’t last forever. Eventually someone else will come along and change what what have done for better or worse.
That is why one man is not the answer.
BUT, THERE IS HOPE!
The Bible continues to say:
But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in the LORD their God. He made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them. He keeps every promise forever. He gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry. The LORD frees the prisoners. The LORD opens the eyes of the blind. The LORD lifts up those who are weighed down. The LORD loves the godly. The LORD protects the foreigners among us. He cares for the orphans and widows, but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.
– Psalm 146:5-9
Every great man’s life is temporary. God is eternal.
Men change their minds. God never changes.
Men lie. God always speaks truth.
Men fail to keep promises. God always keeps His promises.
Plans fade away. People fade away. Entire nations fade away. But God remains the same.
We don’t need Obamacare or Romneycare. We need some Jesuscare!
Jesus is our only hope. Not any one politician. In God we trust.
Do you agree?
