  • There Are No Permanent Secular-Political-Solutions To Spiritual Problems.


    This Opening Post is NOT to discuss any political issue.
    the Opening Post is NOT to discuss politics.
    This Opening Post is ONLY to re-affirm the truth of:

    "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray
    and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven,
    and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.___2 Chronicles 7:14

    _____________


    I wrote this piece mainly for Christians, but non-Christians might find it
    interesting.

    Introductory Remarks:
    My entire family are Christians. We are all strong Conservatives.
    We are all Republicans. We have always voted for the Republican Party.
    We always will do that. We support Law and Order.
    Laws are necessary. Laws do reduce crime.
    Politics is necessary. Politics is merely what we do {policies , , , political policies}
    Nations do what they do, because they believe what they believe.
    There is no possible way to escape "the political process."
    Politics is here to stay until the end of time.

    Politics can temporarily solve some human problems.

    But politics can never solve the root problem, which is spiritual.

    A diseased ROOT will always produce "bad policies" fruit.

    Fix one political problem, and another will appear somewhere else.

    Diseased root. You must cure the "bad root" problem. to have good fruit.

    So? So there are better solutions to human problems than political
    solutions. These better solutions are spiritual solutions,

    Nonetheless , , ,
    Many Christians seek political solutions to what they will admit are
    spiritual problems.

    They seek to "elect the right kind of men" to political office with the goal of
    fixing America's many moral, economic, and political problems.

    Please read this next paragraph very carefully , , ,
    They want the Christian moral code to become a reality through the political
    process. My view is this is utterly impossible to achieve. Here is my view of
    that in a nutshell: There is not a shred of Biblical evidence that teaches the
    way to fix a nation’s spiritual problems, is to elect “the right kinds of politicians"
    to public office. That is pure fantasy. The notion that: If we can "just somehow
    elect the right politicians", then we can legislate the Christian moral code into
    law” is pure fiction. This is never going to materialize and become a reality.

    Here are some of my reasons why:

    My view is that permanent change can not come through political laws and
    through the “political process." It is impossible to solve human problems apart
    from the supernatural power of God Almighty, and His Son the Lord Jesus,
    and the power of the Holy Spirit.

    {1} You must first change hearts before you can change minds.
    {2} All human moral problems are at root spiritual problems.
    {3} Moral problems are what causes political and economic problems.
    {4} There are no lasting secular political solutions for spiritual problems.
    {5} But there are lasting spiritual solutions to spiritual problems.
    {6} Those solutions must start with this:
    {A} John 3:3 You must be born again.
    {B} John 3:16 You must accept the Lord Jesus as your Savior.
    {C} Galatians 5:22-23 You must allow the Holy Spirit to produce
    the fruits of the Holy Spirit in your life, which are:
    {a} love
    {b} joy
    {c} peace
    {d} patience
    {e} kindness
    {f} goodness
    {g} faithfulness
    {h} gentleness
    {i} self-control
    This changes the "root" of the problem.
    This changes the heart.
    Which then changes the mind.
    So that men now desire to do what is right without being "forced to do right"
    by the political process , , ,Laws , , Police with guns , , Jail Time , ,etc

    Anything not the above will fail to permanently solve the "political" problem
    You can “throw money” at it.
    You can “throw laws” at it.
    You will fail.
    If you DO solve the problem in one area, the same ROOT problem will
    pop-up in another area. We saw this principle being played out in the
    streets of America as rioting, looting, burning cars, burning buildings,
    physical assaults, and murdering people was occurring right in front of
    Law Enforcement Officers and elected politicians, who, at the time, did
    not prevent it from happening. All this has a "root problem" that has
    been a reality for decades, and if this present social chaos is "solved"
    by politics, the "root problem" will re-appear, in another form, somewhere
    else in the "garden" of America. Its merely a question of "when" and "where"
    and "how bad" it will be, the next time it pops-up.

    "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray
    and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven,
    and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.___2 Chronicles 7:14

    God Bless Us All.

    I agree with this ... only thing I have to say though is why would you ...

    Not that I ever voted for the Democrat Party but I am not going to vote for a Party/Person Republican who I have serious problems with ... I mean allegorically one could have voted for the pharisees or the other "party" the Sadducees OR one could vote for a man that didn't appear to have any power or potential to win but was more aligned with God.

    This just has me thinking a lot about difference between OT and NT and most specifically ... the book of Hebrews ...


    Oh and I am also not wanting to do these things ...

      Thanks for your comments.
      Thanks for reading the Opening Post.
      We are in mess here in America.
      There are only two political parties that can win national elections.
      A person who votes can vote either GOP or Donk for President.
      Me and my Family always have, and always will, vote Republican.
      Why? Because that's the best we can do under the present circumstances.
      __________

      I hope you found my Opening Post intellectually and spiritually stimulating.
      What I wrote was not perfect to be sure -- but it did honor God and put Him
      First as THE ONLY permanent solution to human social, political, and
      economic problems.

        And so then maybe only the pahrisees or the sadduces could "win" ... seems you put a lot of emphasis on making sure you vote for the "right" political party ... I am an American so I am very much aware of the situation in America.

        ___________

        I hope you found my responses intellectually and spiritually stimulating ... and I will wait on God to determine and proclaim that I honored Him and put Him first ...

          What would you like for me to do?
          What are your recommendations for me to do?
          There are 2 political parties in America that can win national elections.
          What do you want me to do?
