Adam’s Blog is a great blog from an evangelical conservative Idahoian.  Here’s his take on the health care bill defeat:

Bill at Free in Idaho has a post up that’s worthy of some thought:

“Just a comment for my Christian brothers and sisters who invest so much in the political process, which, by the way, I’m guilty of myself at times.  Do not put your faith, your hope, in men, their laws and their political institutions.  Legislating anything, be it the “defense of marriage” (whatever that is) or protecting the life of a baby in the womb, will never be a sure thing deal that gets you the world as you think it should be.  You are trusting in human beings and human beings are notorious for selling out for a bowl of porridge.  Just ask Bart Stupak…”

“So look up.  The plan proceeds apace, and the King is still on the throne.” 

I think that the Obamacare bill passed poses a grave threat to our liberty and that our nation is in serious danger overall. I definitely think Christians should remain involved in the process and committed to standing up for what’s right because I believe this American heritage we have is a gift, but at the same time, BillH has got a point. Our hope can’t be in the outcome of the next elections. Rather, hope needs to exist in God no matter how hopeless and scary the situation.

Habukkuk 3:17-19 comes to mind:

“Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines, the labor of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat, the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls– yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.”

“The LORD God is my strength; and He will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and He will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.”

I think hope has sustained godly people facing situations far more grim than we face today, and that is the hope I continue to long for as we continue through this difficult age.

Way to go, Adam!  (Used with express permission)

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
