I’m not a fan of laid back worship music, but Deitrich’s words resonate with me. The tradition in which I was raised now seems to require undivided allegiance to political leadership that I find repulsive. Rather than being honest in riding his coattails of power for political gains while calling him out for corruption, they demand that we recognize him as God’s anointed one. He’s not even a pretty good person, much less one anointed by God to lead our country.
Each moment under our current president is a scary and potentially damaging moment. Maybe the Omnipotent Creator of the Universe will ultimately influence outcomes for good. Unfortunately, the Creator will not be able to use the bulk of Evangelical Christians to accomplish this work.
