from Scot McKnight:
Agitation for control, that's what happens during election seasons (which last way too long in the USA), and the culture wars implicates many Christians in that agitation for control. There is within our faith an aching for God's will be to done but when that ache becomes activism in the political sector it often falls prey to the "Constantinian Temptation."
Our Lord's vision of the kingdom surpasses partisan politics. It relocates politics. It calls us to a different kind of politics.
