What most politicians have in common with drug dealers, and the like, is that God is not welcomed into the daily affairs of their lives, EXCEPT maybe on Sundays when they provide our God with hella lip service. This reminds me of Isaiah 29:13, "The Lord says: "These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men."
We, as the people, get the same treatment. We have all of their words, yet none of their hearts. I am not dogging ALL politicians, but I am dogging the majority. If the shoe fits, wear it!! Wear it proudly!! Be honest about who you are. If the truly good-hearted politicians were the majority, our country would be in MUCH better shape, financially, ethically, physically, and most importantly, SPIRITUALLY!!
When God is cut out, ALL hell breaks loose and runs rampant among us, the innocent and guilty alike. The corruption of government kills an entire nation ("Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people." -Proverbs 14:34-). We call ourselves a super power amongst the nations of the world, yet we can't ever seem to resolve our own civil, internal, racial, ethnic, ethical, financial, and social issues. We are nation, divided in multiple ways. Our country is sick. It is bruised. America is falling apart. Only God has the power to save it. Obama can't do it! The democrats can't do it!! The Republicans can't do it!! ONLY GOD CAN HEAL OUR LAND!!!
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." -2Chronicles 7:14-
