The 2012 election held stunning figures that do not figure at all. By that I mean that more than 6 million self-described evangelical Christians voted for a president who supports abortion on demand; supports same-sex marriage as well as holding quite an anti-religious freedom record.
Were these self-professed believers held at gunpoint to surrender their biblical convictions in the voting booth, or is Christianity a label without deep biblical convictions on the critical issues to begin with?
It reminds me of a question from Jesus in the book of Luke: When the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? The outcome of this election was not an indictment upon a political party but an indictment upon the church.
Faith is neither an entitlement nor a convenience but an application shown in daily living that one does not remove like a winter coat. The churches had better buckle up its seat belts because they are in for a long stretch and a bumpy ride.
