The Coming Change

According to the Wall Street Journal, this is what we have to look forward to if the liberals take the Presidency and increase their numbers in Congress.

Obama did say his campaign was about change.
He didn't say the change would be good for America.
God is in charge and Obama won't change that.

I've been hearing the comment "God is in control" a lot lately -- mostly from Christians who are not too happy with the prospect of the liberals taking over our government. I get what they are saying: as a statement of faith, it's absolutely true. Regardless of how things may change, for good or for ill, we can always know that a Sovereign God is, indeed, in control of the circumstances and that He is faithful to those who love Him (Romans 8:28).

Yes, I know that God will still be in control should the liberals sweep into office. Yes, I know He will still be in control when they begin to implement policies that will create a "share the wealth" state (we know from history how well that worked in Russia). Yes, I know He will still be in control when tolerance is elevated to the highest virtue -- tolerance, that is, of the liberal point of view and absolute intolerance of anyone who dissents (I wonder where evangelical Christians who believe in the Bible will fit into their new world order? Want to hazard a guess?)

However, I have to wonder how often we say "God is in control" not as a bedrock statement of faith, but as a platitude that excuses our apathy, our feelings of helplessness, or our inaction.

As a Christian who would like to see our nation's policies come back in line with a biblical worldview, I can't just sit back and not care when I see what is at stake in this election. Yes, God may be in control, but that doesn't mean I'm not supposed to act to be "salt and light" in my generation. Or, more precisely, I must act as a "watchman on the wall" who tries to warn people of the disaster heading our way.

Yes, God will be in control even if disaster comes: and He will work all things together for good to those who love Him. But if He has given us eyes to see how to avoid such a disaster -- for ourselves, for our families, for our neighbors -- is it not a sin to ignore His warnings?
