Signs of Political Idolatry by Tim Keller


I’ve wanted to do a post on how we put far to much trust in politics as Christians. We go far beyond of civic duty as a citizen and end up in political idolatry. Tim Keller is half genius half man. Love how he put it so much better than I ever could. Here is a quote from the post he wrote.

Another sign of idolatry in our politics is that opponents are not considered to be simply mistaken but to be evil. After the last presidential election, my eighty-four-year-old mother observed, ‘It used to be that whoever was elected as your president, even if he wasn’t the one you voted for, he was still your president. That doesn’t seem to be the case any longer.’

It was so convicting for me personally and is something every christian should read no matter what color your state is.
