God is in control or Christians and politics

Sometimes we Christians forget that God is in control.  We get caught up in the world and think along with them that government (or the economy or education or whatever the current big thing is) is the one in charge, the one that can make or break everything, the all knowing all doing entity.

Sometimes we forget that though God uses government, government is not God and will be corrupted, we will be persecuted (eventually), and we need to put our trust in God, not in man.

8If you see oppression of the poor and denial of justice and righteousness in the province, do not be shocked at the sight; for one official watches over another official, and there are higher officials over them.9After all, a king who cultivates the field is an advantage to the land. Ecclesiastes 5:8-9

No matter what happens God is in control.  We are NOT to be afraid or worry, we are to pray, trust God, and make sure WE are right with God (we can’t fix the world and aren’t supposed to–we are to tell them about Him and trust Him to make the changes.)

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Just a cool quiz

Today I ran across this great little quiz through Reason Hit or Miss:

The World’s Smallest Political Quiz 

You all know I am Constitution party with strong Libertarian leanings.  In other words–I stand by the Constitution but if you MUST do things differently than what the Constitution says then it better give me MORE freedoms and not less.

It is surprising to me how many people believe one way and yet support a group that works directly against their beliefs.  How do your beliefs line up with who you support?  No, I don’t expect you to tell me about your political leanings–I try, in general, to stay out of it completely.  I do believe that people should make informed choices and knowing where you stand is a great place to start. 🙂  And I actually suspect that most of the people who swing by here are actually pretty sure of themselves and what they believe–the people  I would love to have take this quiz are people I know in real life who NEVER come to my website so….oh well.:)  It is still pretty cool.  Check it out.
