One things I have seen and learned from living outside the US, is how American Christianity is infected with "americanism". Countless evangelicals, without out realizing it view the Bible through an american lens. Sometimes it seems that many US christians see the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence as a way to live the Christian life. If Obama wins the upcoming election, one can be certain that their will be many evangelical voices crying doom and gloom for the USA. "We need to fight for our liberties and a godly country!" is the battle cry. But should it be? While the freedoms we enjoy as Americans are a blessings, we must remember that they are just that a blessing. God gives and takes away those blessings as He pleases according to His plan. Our first brothers in Christ certainly did not have the liberties that we hold dear. But they understood something that modern American Christianity has forgotten- we who are saved by God are citizens first of a higher kingdom. Therefore we do not "change" America through elections, boycotts, and lobbying. We simply must preach the Gospel and the pure Gospel. Buy all means exercise your liberty to vote while you have it. Voice your opinion in a gracious and Christ like matter. But realize that politicking will not save America. Outlawing abortion will not save America. Conservative judges will not save America. Only Christ will save America. Here is a quote from Erwin Lutzer in his book "The Cross can do What Politics can´t": He also said: Regarding politics Spurgeon with his usual wit said: And finally here is link to a good article by Dr. MacArthur in regards to political activism.
