A site I frequent regularly has taken upon itself to hold out a lack of accusation as the standard for Christians in public office. That means that the instant an accusation is launched against any Christian, then he or she is immediately disqualified for the race. Now, if you wish to keep Christians out of office, your strategy is simple: accusation. Isn’t it strange that the devil is called “the accuser of the brethren” and that Jesus said that evil people speak the language of their father, the evil one? What could this ever mean? Could it mean that evil people will accuse you of things you never did because they are evil? Horrors! Why, the very thought!
Such attitudes are why Christians do not do well in running for public office. Their fellows insist upon such impossible standards that would shut out all Christian influence from any position of power, even those within the church or parachurch ministries. Such standards do not matter to those who are never part of the battle, though! They are free to stand outside all conflict and opine about how it should be. Thus any Christian running for public office cannot count upon the support of the brethren. They have to make common cause with those who do not share their beliefs, and while necessary, that is not without risk.
How little civics those who hold the highest truth often possess! Ever blind, they never realize that their ignorance and their impossible demands are the very reason why things are as they are. Then they turn around and vote for a vile adulterous man without batting an eye.
You have earned Trump and Doug Jones.
