Just Thinking…About God’s Preferred Candidate

Every day I come across a post informing me that God or Jesus is concerned with the American presidential election outcome. Not too long ago, a self-proclaimed prophetic poster was warning that Jesus was going to be terribly upset, and the nation would collapse into utter despair, if christians did not unite and elect Rick Santorum. (oops!)  I was relieved to learn that perhaps we are not doomed since God now wants us to vote for Romney according to the urgent messages being received by others. Then today I have learned that God is demanding the reelection of Obama.

Did Jesus imply that issues of government were not his concern, nor held any relevance to the kingdom of God, when he said to render to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s? I hope so, because otherwise if all these opposing prophetic messages are true then God seems to be waffling in his will. But my point is this: shouldn’t we be cautious not to promote our own preferences as the intent of God?

One thought on “Just Thinking…About God’s Preferred Candidate

  1. God’s only demand regarding politics is that we obey the duly elected government (irrespective of who wins the election). God told us that all governments , good or bad were instituted by Him and that we are to obey them so long as they don’t interfere with our relations with God. Therefore who wins is of little interest to the Almighty but our observance of the law and the Law are. And remember Yeshua, said that he hadn ‘t come to abolish the law but to fulfill it. So we are to live by the Law but our salvation is through faith.
