Isn’t it disturbing that Jesus specifically told His disciples not to submit to the leaven of Herod, not to try to establish the Kingdom on earth via political means, yet Christians today look towards their government to try to create a moral society?
Doesn’t it bother you that the early Christians, who were facing a society in which people watched gladiators die for sport and temple prostitution was sanctioned by the government, yet we whine and complain about abortion and gay marriage?
Early Christianity, with all of its problems, preached the simple Gospel of the The Kingdom, Jesus and what He did, backed up by signs and wonders, and saw the entire known world reached in thirty years.
Modern Christianity spends most of its time pontificating about America’s next president, God judging innocent people because of sin, and about how sinners are (GASP) sinning, and manages to turn most of the world off to a God who is madly in love with them.
Maybe it’s about time we put our trust in Holy Spirit’s power to transform hearts and not government’s power to legislate."
