Republican Upset

So, as many of you know, the Republicans that have just been overwhelmingly voted in to office, those same Republicans that told voters they would pass a bill to limit and restrict abortion, have rescinded the bill because of…? Well, there seems to be a couple flimsy reasons that are not really reasons, but my guess is that people are sinners and the lack of sincerity behind their word should not surprise us from a biblical worldview. Here is a more thorough review with additional links.

Pro-lifers that voted Republican, you can be upset that you have been hoodwinked, duped, taken advantage of, manipulated, etc. However, we ought to let this be a reminder to us as Christians. Democrats will not save this nation, and neither will Republicans. Salvation is of the Lord, and only repentance and submission to Him will turn this nation from death to life. This repentance will be a gift of God’s grace and it is the task of the church to plead with the God of heaven and earth to forgive our sins and grant repentance to us. Don’t put your trust in the men and women in office, put your trust in the King.

24 And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, 25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth,26 and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will” (2 Timothy 2:24-26).
