The is­sues that di­vide this coun­try are ul­ti­mately not po­lit­i­cal is­sues. They are not is­sues of red ver­sus blue states, of ap­proaches of how to best solve the mul­ti­fac­eted prob­lems we face as a coun­try; the is­sues that di­vide us are is­sues of the heart. We can change the way we do things, but un­less there is a change of the heart, any changes we make re­ally won’t change any­thing in the long run. Again it was Thomas Jef­fer­son who wrote, “The rea­son that Chris­tian­ity is the best friend of Gov­ern­ment is be­cause Chris­tian­ity is the only re­li­gion in the world that deals with the heart.”

Four-thou­sand plus years of recorded his­tory give em­pir­i­cal ev­i­dence to the fact of orig­i­nal sin. Four-thou­sand years of recorded his­tory re­veals that man is not ba­si­cally good if left to him­self. The Third Re­ich is a grim re­minder of what hap­pens when men be­come gods — the crafter and mas­ter of their own fates. The change we re­ally need to­day is a change of heart and mind and only Christ has the power to bring about such change.

The hope of this na­tion is not go­ing to be found in who sits in the Oval Of­fice come Jan­uary. The hope and only hope of this na­tion is who sits on the throne of the hu­man heart and will.
