In this regard politics is like many other areas of life. It is not always as simple as saying "this is right; this is wrong". Sometimes it's that easy...but often it's not!
I find that when there are differences of opinion and different ways of looking at life, often these can have a positive effect on a community. It highlights things like:
- the fact that we are thinking people and not blindly accepting what we're served up.
- that we are a people who are seriously engaging in the world around us and not just giving platitudes.
- .(...but best of all) the fact that what binds us together as people of faith, is greater than what would try and tear us apart.
Our faith in Jesus Christ is the glue that holds us as one people. HE is the way; the truth; and the life...and He can't be contained within any man-made political system. At this important time where decisions are being made, both personally and as a nation, let's remember our primary goal: to be faithful to God, to follow His Holy Spirit and to seek Him in every way we know how. Only then will we hold the unity in Christ Jesus that God so desperately wants to see in us, His people.
