Some election year perspective

After celebrating Reformation Day (October 31) it is appropriate to consider the implications of the Reformation…

“We must realize that the Reformation world view leads in the direction of government freedom. But the humanist world view, with inevitable certainty, leads in the direction of statism. This is so because humanists, having no god, must put something at the center, and it is inevitably society, government, or the state.” — Francis Schaeffer

Dear Christian, don’t fall prey to the seduction of an election year. Place no hope in the outcome of a presidential race, nor in those who hold public office, for they are all subject to a higher authority — whether they realize it or not.

“The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the LORD; he turns it wherever he will.” — Proverbs 21:1
