Sir Sonnie, you are a Christian, why aren’t you associating God in your presidential bet like many others?
My presidential bet is languishing in the middle; what does that make me if I arrogantly dragged God into my politics?
I will either appear stupid in your eyes, or God’s name will be slandered because people will believe He is helpless to carry out his will. In fact, most are in pain because their candidate whom they believed is the anointed was beaten soundly, with some have even questioned God’s existence.
In my opinion, God’s name should not be dragged into our politics for the following reasons:
“.. Joshua went to him and said to him, Are you for us, or for our enemies? And he said, NEITHER; but I am the commander of the army of the LORD. Now I have come.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped..” Joshua 5:13-14
“For my thoughts are NOT your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD” Isaiah 55:8
Because of this, despite praying and diligently picking my presidential bet, he did not even get 1M votes.
An election is a way by which a society chooses its leader based on its collective likes. Because 60M Filipinos have diverse ideals, the majority’s preferences will prevail.
Instead of asking God to take sides in our politics, I believe Christians should decipher whether God’s priority is structural and legislative changes thru politics over converting men’s hearts through the gospel, in advancing righteousness, social justice, and good governance on earth.
Which one do you think is God’s priority, politics or evangelism?
