Oh, such a nasty word.
Earnest Benn said, “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.”
We’ve all seen that coming from Washington. Doesn’t matter whether the Democrats or Republicans are in office. Too often wrong remedies to problems that don’t even exist!
Sadly, politics isn’t limited to government.
Politics are too often found inside the church building.
Bone-headed decisions. Man-made rules, practices. Wrong remedies. Wrong motives.
Scripture never teaches to operate the church like government.
So, why do so many insist on it?
