“Politics = many ticks. Ticks are bloodsucking parasites.”
It’s a popular joke, but it has proven to be a somewhat accurate representation of government in times past with certain officials.
Personally, I am very interested in politics, but TICKS gross me out.
I shivered and got goosebumps when I saw the picture and choose to use it, that’s how much they creep me out. I don’t like bugs.
I DO like making a difference, though, and politics is an area where the Church has created a vacuum. We need to arise to the occasion, get educated, and then get active in taking back our country and transforming our culture.
Jesus is returning for an inheritance of nations (Matthew 24:14, Micah 2:3). He expects us to go out and train the world how to think, speak, and act like He does (Matthew 28:19-20). He wants us to deviate from the historical track record of selfishness and to lead like He leads. His kindness leads us into repentance (Romans 2:4), but His justice makes a whip to drive out those who do not belong and are perverting the purpose of God in the land (John 2:15).
