do you let the government do the work of the church?
do you hope for the church do the work of the government?
whose role is it?
3.6 billion dollars have been spent on this years campaign…
How can we, as Christians, as the Church, put an end to this?
Why do I not like politics or government? This is why.
This money could be going to things that are so much more important. Things that make a difference.
Honestly, this money is spent and given to broadcasting companies that already have more then enough money.
This money is spent out of the excess of rich men who have a lot or those who feel so strongly about politics they donate it (great thing to do) but what if they were to donate it to: http://www.onedayswages.org/ or even http://www.one.org/us/ instead? Or to http://www.heifer.org/ where they can buy a cow for a village instead?
Am I anti-government? Am I anti-politics?
Not at all. I just wish it was time American politicians stopped being so ethnocentric and saw outside their party lines and causes.
I would vote for any politician who was actually truly for the poor. Who was willing to sacrifice and not smere campaign, but instead use their money wisely - advertise less, but advertise with a purpose. Or maybe, do a one for one advertising campaign like TOMS does with shoes…
These are just my thoughts. But, I long to see us as the Church model this before any politician or government does.
Maybe I dream too much? Maybe I just long for the “not yet” part of the “now and not yet” or “indicative and imperative” to ring true and fully represent itself on earth? Maybe, just maybe, I dream too big of dreams?
