As a result of seeing love of country as synonymous with love of Christ andÂ political activism as equivalent to serving Christ, many American ChristiansÂ feel obligated to continue to participate in our current and corrupt politicalÂ process, even at the expense of their Christian convictions. To do soÂ requires them to compartmentalize their politics from their faith. They go toÂ the polls to vote for lesser evils, since they are afforded no righteousÂ alternative to evil on the ballot, while claiming at the same time to be aÂ Christian, someone commanded by Scripture to avoid â€œall appearance ofÂ evilâ€ (1 Thessalonians 5:22).
Of course, political activism in this anti-christ country is justified by today’sÂ American evangelicals as an attempt on their part to turn our countryÂ around. As it has been astutely observed, our failure to learn from historyÂ dooms us to repeat it. For instance, consider the following.Â At the time of Christâ€™s First Advent, the people of God missed the signs ofÂ the times over their looking for a political savior for their countryâ€”Israel.Â Likewise, today, at the time of Christâ€™s Second Coming, America’sÂ evangelicals are missing the signs of the times over their looking for aÂ political savior for our countryâ€”America. As a consequence of rejectingÂ their promised Messiah over His failure to fulfill their political expectations,Â Israel suffered the judgment of God. Like 1st century Israel, 21st centuryÂ America is rejecting the promised Savior in lieu of political solutions to all ofÂ our country’s problems. As a result, present-day America, just like ancientÂ Israel, is destined to suffer the soon coming judgment of God!
