America remains at a proverbial crossroads where as a nation, with each election, we are faced with the choice of who we will be and what our children will become. The polls, as well as our own encounters, reveal that we are a divided nation. Divided not as much by ethnic, economic or educational factors as by worldview; the lenses through which we see and understand the world around us.
There are two competing worldviews locked in an epic struggle. There is a biblical worldview, those who are followers of Jesus Christ and believe and live according to the truth of God's word. Then there are a host of worldviews that find their commonality in the power and authority of human beings, what is described as a humanist worldview.
Possibly, not since the first century of the church, we see the reality of Jesus' words in Luke 12:49-53 that His message is one of division. To be sure, those who accept and yield to His message can and should be unified as He prayed in John 17:20-21, but there can be no true peace and unity between followers of Jesus Christ and the world (2 Cor 6:14).
Given this understanding of the world in which we live, what should be our course of action?
For the sake of America and the rest of the world that is impacted by the choices of this nation at this point in the history of the world, we must pray! But prayer is the beginning, not the end. We must vote. Fully informed and engaged in determining who will lead our nation and the policies that they will pursue. And we must stand. We must stand for the truth of God's word in every realm of society, "in season and out of season."
