The constitution has empowered the common citizen to live the American dream. Eleventh Hour Politics is empowered by the same calling of our founding fathers.
I find it interesting that as our society has evolved into the 21st century, we have become a divided nation trying to build on moral relativity. Once upon a time we were built on scripture which intertwined into our constitution. The king of the hill (Capital Hill) was elected and expected to maintain integrity, honor, and truth or the preachers got upset…and it went downhill from there for the dishonest politician.
In this ‘eleventh hour’ (Matt. 20) we actually can see how political philosophies are divided in a church congregation. Even in church, truth has become relative. I hope to bring sound doctrine to a variety of issues- both political and spiritual. If we dismiss either one, our nation can not stand (Lev. 26).
In addition, I meet many politicians that want to do the right thing, yet they need prayer because the pressure is enormous to ‘play politics’. Remember all our leaders in prayer, but particularly those who are trying to fight an uphill battle with the integrity we saw in them when we sent them into office. When their decisions seem bizarre/wrong, it’s often because they feel beat up- enough people aren’t praying. Also, pray for church leadership.
Over the years, there has been some “progressive” adjustments made to scripture, based on the times and popular culture. Obviously, most often, it has gone unnoticed. So on Eleventh Hour Politics I take less observed scripture and find it’s pearl, so to speak, to shed light on it in hopes to reignite a flame that has been dying out and forgotten over the years.
In addition, there’s a need to address evolution and other new age belief systems. Whether you believe in God/Jesus or not, some of the people I’ve had the pleasure to interview, will provide you with interesting insight that should cause you to think.
“…It is rather for us the living, we here be dedicated to the great task remaining before us-that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion -that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.”
Abraham Lincoln | The Gettysburg Address
De 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.
