2008 Election Day

In quotes on November 4, 2008 at 4:19 pm

Well today is election day.  I hope you voted.  As frustrating as this election has been for many of us, it is good to know that “the Most High rules the kingdom of men and gives it to whom he will” (Dan. 4:32).

Mark Driscoll had some excellent thoughts about the election here.  He pretty much sums up the way I’ve been feeling about it.

“… sadly, no matter who wins there will be no call to personal repentance of our own personal sins which contributes to cultural suffering and decline such as our pride, gluttony, covetousness, greed, indebtedness, self-righteousness, perversion, and laziness. And, in four years we’ll do it all again and pretend that this time things will be different. Four years after that, we’ll do it yet again. And, we’ll continue driving around this cul de sac until Jesus returns, sets up his throne, and puts an end to folly once and for all.”

I just want to say that I in no way encourage or promote political apathy.  However, I do not believe that the election should ever take primacy over the gospel.
