Our hope lies elsewhere. For the Colson Center, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.
As I said recently on BreakPoint, Christians can’t be selective about holding our leaders accountable for improprieties.
Ignoring or dismissing misconduct by a leader who’s “on our side,” shows a lack of faith. No election can alter the rock-solid truth that Christ is risen, Christ is Lord, and He will restore all things.
In a recent WORLD Magazine article, Marvin Olasky rightly said that “if we act (selectively)… as feminists acted toward Bill Clinton, we need to think about the message we’re sending our children: Some are concluding that conservative evangelicals care more about political power than anything else . . . what if we win an election but lose a generation?”
Olasky concludes, “More important than any particular election, more important even than our cultural direction, is the gospel . . . Our goal should be to glorify God and enjoy Him forever, not to abandon central Biblical principles regarding women’s worth, or to glorify a politician and win a Senate seat.”
Amen to that.
