What is it I ramble of here? Political isles… reds and blues… Democrats, Republicans, and whatever hosts of growing names are available today. I’m not affiliated with any of them, and to be perfectly honest, find all of them lacking virtue. I’m not much of a fan of the “lesser of two evils” philosophy.
Each of the two primary parties have had a multitude of opportunities to do what is morally right, and yet we digress. When I speak of a revolution, I am not siding with a party. Truth be known, the parties only do what their supporters demand anyway.
At some point, this series has to begin to travel the path of reality. We don’t have a political problem in America near as much as we are experiencing the effects of spiritual death. The Constitution that our Founding Fathers graced us with puts all power in the hands of the people. Technically, when we groan about the activity in Washington, we are really doing a self-evaluation of ourselves as a whole.
Here’s the bottom line. There are now more people in our nation whose principles and values are radically different from mine than there are those who are like-minded. Therefore, their people get into office and mine hold blue collar jobs. America is becoming what its majority wants it to be. As much as I dislike that, the will of the people is coming to pass.
I use the term “Revolution” as a simple attention-getter. In reality, a recent commenter said it best, “We could be singing ‘Revolution’ in the church.” And in greater reality, that’s where this thing will be fixed if it is to be fixed at all.
Maybe I’m still old school enough to believe God when He says, “If My people, who are called by My Name humble themselves, and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land (2 Chr 7:14)” As goes the Church… so goes the world (Billy Ray Jackson).
