My Thoughts on the 2016 US Presidential Election

Last night, I posted my thoughts on the 2016 US Presidential Election and addressed the recent protests in a blog post on another blog I am contributing to for Focusing on the Mark Ministries.

It is tempting to want to look through scriptures like Luke 17:22ff and here at Luke 21:5-35 merely for insight into the future. What we are meant to see here are the clear instructions our Lord gives us for dealing with the “here and now” of life’s struggles as well as the “there and then” at the end of this world. So what is a Christian to do in a world of upheaval? Do not be Misled Luke 21:8 nails it down for us: “see to it that you are not misled…” There will be false messiah’s. There will be rumors that the real Jesus has come back. In fact in the companion passage in Matthew 24 we read about a great many opportunities to […]
