That's pretty deep.

But, God undoubtedly has an opinion.
A correct opinion, for that matter.
Also, I'm not sure if there is a defined "right" and "wrong" in politics. There are some issues that have a grey area, such as immigration, in my opinion. Others are black and white: such as abortion. Opinion is such a conundromous concept.

Nice post.

I thought of it when a bumper sticker that stated "God is NOT a Republican" drove by me on the way downtown today.

Amy, you're right in saying there are few black-and-white situations in politics (in life, for that matter). But the situation doesn't have to define right and wrong for us to know that someone was wrong. And we know that's happened to everyone of all political orientations.

In short, democrats are wrong and republicans are wrong—not all the time, but at least once. And that's enough to disqualify God from membership.

God, being the author of all life, is pro-life.

He's a member of the Constitution party. ;-)

Good post-I saw this quote earlier today, thought it was relevant: "Stop "reclaiming America for Christ." Christ already has a kingdom, an upside-down, mustard-seed kingdom without a flag. And while you people are so busy trying to create an alternative kingdom called "Christian America," the prostitutes and tax collectors and Samaritans are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you."

There are most definitely black and white issues in politics. They may not seem black and white to meager human minds, because we form OPINIONS (all we are capable of because of our limited wisdom) about political issues. Everyone has a different OPINION, and because of this we render issues not black and white. But alas, they are. There is One who sees everything as black and white. This One, contrary to previous comments here, does NOT have an opinion. An opinion is a belief or conclusion held with confidence but not substantiated by positive knowledge or proof. This One most definitely has positive knowledge AND proof (seeing as He created the laws that govern the universe in the first place), and therefore does not hold opinions; nay, everything is black and white to Him. So yes, everything in politics is ultimately black and white, although to the feeble human mind will forever appear otherwise.

Agreed. I never said God had opinions, because a margin of error is inherent in the possession of "opinion." And when I spoke of black-and-white, I was most definitely speaking of politics from man's perspective. God's view is perfectly in-focus, but it's kind of hard for us to get a hold on for most political issues. We'll never get His perspective on everything this side of glory.
