Today, on Facebook, someone posted this acronym: V.O.T.E.–Victory Over The Enemy. It is messages like these that I seek to address and undo through my writings. The Church must be Christ’s Church but it seems that this election has revealed that there is a Church of the Democrats, a Church of the Republicans and a Church of the Independents. But, Christ’s body is not divided as we shared in Sunday’s post.
And who is the enemy here? Is it Satan or a candidate that we are equating with this incalculable evil presence? If we think we can reduce such a being to flesh and blood, then we have not truly comprehended the nature, power and ability of evil? And we are simple and immature if we believe that we can vote evil in and out of anything. God didn’t hold an election in order to save humanity but sent the Son, Jesus Christ.
