Rev.-David-Deal2Q & A: “What Does Reverend Deal Say This Week

God, whom shall we vote for?”                            

Question: Is God into politics?

Answer: This is a very good question. The word politics in Greek means polis; which is a “city or community”. Let’s look at the scriptures. Isaiah 9:6-7; speaks about a government that God will establish through His Son Jesus. And how His established government will rest upon His shoulders. His government of peace there shall be no end’. In other words, God’s political view is that He will establish a city, community or government that His sovereignty, His dominion and His presidency is never opposed or question. God is into politics. God had a direct hand in choosing David as King of Israel (1Sam 16:1-13). Scripture speaks of “casting Lots” which is a method used to determine the will of God. After Judas Iscariot killed himself, the disciples cast lots to get a replacement (Acts 1:22-26).

     Jesus political views were astounding in the areas of religion, economics, and social disparities. There are several books available concerning Jesus for your reading pleasure. A book that was brought to my attention is entitled” The Radical Teachings of Jesus” by Derek J. Morris   

     In Romans 13:1-7; God is advising us to submit to governing authorities.  1st Peter 2:13-14; talks on how we should submit to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake.

     Today, God is concern more about the welfare of the church/people than choosing a presidential candidate. Although, by all means, please get out and vote. God has the last vote anyway. Paul says it best in 1st Corinthians 1:10’ By the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ I appeal to all of you, my brothers and sisters, to agree in what you say, so that there will be no divisions among you. Be completely united, with only one thought and one purpose’. GNB
