A friend sent a quote from Europe that should give us much to think about as American Christians. How much of our time and effort is caught up in working on a presidential race and looking at who gets elected to that office, rather than ministering to the people who actually cast ballots in these elections? Let me know what you think!
I am told that this quote came from the Czech Republic. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper Prager Zeitungon
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”
Whoever wrote this obviously had spent a good deal of time studying the Book of Proverbs!
