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.
