I couldn’t agree more with Chuck Colson today:
With the presidential election finally over and with the re-election of
President Bush, some are thinking, “Hallelujah! We have a president who’s going
to promote a godly moral agenda. All is well because we’ve won.”
If that’s what you’re thinking, it’s time for a serious reality check. The
kingdom of God will not arrive on Air Force One no matter how good the
president’s character or great his ability. Don’t get me wrong: Elections are
important; the law is a moral teacher. But all the laws and political victories
will not help us if we lose the culture. Our job is the same no matter who is in
office: that is, to make serious disciples and to bring Christian truth to bear
in all of life.
