The Presidential election is only weeks away…and it’s getting ugly out there. I mean…really ugly.
And before you think I’m just talking about the political process, the political parties, or the respective candidates, I was actually talking about you, me, us, and them…the people. And by people, I’m also especially talking about Christians.
Sometimes, I feel it would be appropriate to label how some Christians engage the Presidential election season as “Christians Gone Wild.“
Since it’s time for another presidential debate and there’s sure to be drama this week and next, and the following week, and each day leading up to Election Day on November 6 and likely some weeks afterwards, I thought I’d share with you my 10 Commandments of the Election Season for Christians in hopes that it might speak some balance, sense, and perspective to any readers – not just during this election season but thereafter; Not just in this country but in any country.

I received this comment last week regarding my supposed slandering of soon to be former President George W. Bush. The funny thing was I was trying to defend him in that post about an Iraqi journalist throwing a shoe at him. Okay, I know he’s not the greatest president and many can’t wait to see him out of office but we should give him some props. Why? His work and advocacy for Africa was signifcant and secondly, the reality of extremist terrorists is legit and he navigated the country through uncharted territories especially through post 9/11. But I still don’t support the war in Iraq.
Anyway, read the comment below. Good thoughts for rumination by the commenter who I don’t know. I appreciate the respectful tone in which he communicated his concerns. But honestly, I get very concerned about Christians quoting Scriptures instructing people to “respect our governing authorities and fall in submission to them.”
Really? Yes, let’s respect our leaders. I agree that it’s important but please don’t blindly submit to your leaders. Please don’t tell this Read the rest of this entry »
