So much of our news these days is dominated by the race for President. I did some reading today from "The Cross Examination of Jesus Christ" (by Randy Singer) that really gets to the heart of the matter of politics and the Christian:
"There are plenty of Christians intent on changing our nation's laws. But there aren't many intent on changing the hearts of our nation's lawyers. Christ didn't lead a political revolt, but He did try to convert the rich young ruler. He never led an army, but He did heal the centurion's daughter. He didn't try to reform the Sanhedrin, but He did meet with Nicodemus, a member of the Sanhedrin, at night."
