Thanks for a thoughtful and timely message. We are moving rapidly into 'post-Christian America', if not already there. The GOP has 'played' the Christian conservative right like a cheap $2 banjo for the past 30 years, promising much and delivering little. And WHY SHOULD Caesar be tasked with building God's kingdom? That is OUR job, not Caesar's. We have been 'hiring' and trusting the WRONG people to do it. The 'un-reality' of the situation became glaringly obvious this campaign: a Left-of-center Massachussets liberal, member of a recognized Christian 'cult', re-packaged and 'sold' to the GOP faithful as a 'born again Christian conservative'! Billy Graham obligingly dropped the LDS from the list of 'cults' to placate the political machine!

Editor's note: This is the second in a two-part series on where things stand following the 2012 election cycle. Part two will focus on where we stand spiritually. Part one is about where we stand politically.

The writer of the Book of Hebrews in the New Testament gives a very difficult but encouraging truth: “The LORD chastens those whom He loves.”

No one wants to be chastened. It is not fun to be disciplined. Yet when God allows such accountability and suffering to take place, this truth teaches us it is because He loves us enough to correct...
