During election time, politicians say what they think people want to hear. Instead of saying, "I will raise taxes," they may say they will lower taxes, with the intent to act in a reckless or intentional way to cause the opposite to occur from their promise, such as taxes to go up. Many citizens classify politicians as liers and deceitful people.
As Christians, how do we stand on politics, both in our hearts and in our prayers? Do we vote for who entices us with the most emotionanlly-charged rhetoric, or do we usually vote for the honest candidate who appears negative, probably reeks of pessivism? I personally find myself voting for those who are positive and give a sense of hope. But should Christians trust their feelings, their judgment, or something else?
What else is there to trust? I think the Hebrew source text for the Christian Bible, the Torah, has codes to help us answer this. I hope so, because I trust my life to LORD Jesus Christ's hidden, encoded messages.
