Mick Wright has an interesting post over at Fishkite that shows the hypocrisy of Jim Wallis.
If anything makes me more angry, its people like Wallis who have decided that the answer to a Christian Right is a Christian Left.
The answer to either of these is being Christians and letting the government be what it is, the principalities and powers that are controlled by the evil one.
Governments must look after their own self interest. They also must use force in order to enforce their laws. The only thing that makes people pay taxes, go the speed limit, not steal, etc is force. This is why the government can never be the Kingdom.
When Wallis and others allign themselves with Hezbollah, something is wrong. When Wallis can allign himself with America and say that we can be a Christian Nation, he is wrong.
If the Kingdom could be brought about through government and force, don’t you think Jesus would have done so? I mean, Satan offered him all the Kingdoms of the world… yet he turned him down.
Because force doesn’t change hearts. Grace and Mercy do.
