Once again many mainstream Christians placed themselves at the mercy of the media, buying into an “all or nothing” type of political soup that never pleases anyone. It’s almost comical, and sad, how quiet Twitter has been from folks who were all a chatter about how evil Obama was and how he was going down.
Why do we do this? I say “we,” because I have so many friends, nice people, who seem to just set themselves up for a letdown. Neither candidate was perfect. Neither candidate was so “Christian” that every Christian could endorse them. Maybe we should learn something from this & learn to listen more than we critique. Is it possible you and I have wonderful brothers & sisters who simply disagree with us on some things, but we can all still agree on Who the real King is?
I am grateful the election has come and gone…no more talk radio exaggerations and innuendo; now only blaming & pessimism, which makes it so easy to turn the radio/internet off. Maybe we should spend more time talking to God, and listening to our brother & sister. We might just be better off.
