Party National Conventions

Party National Conventions: Getting a bunch of people together, run your opponents into the ground, and build up pride in your own men and women.

The more I watch the Republican convention, the more I realize how antithetical American politics is to a  Christian worldview.

I’d expect backbiting, pride-pushing antics from those who know not the Kingdom of God — within which the last is first and the first is last and opponents are blessed — but how messed up is American Christianity when we see even professed Christians on a national stage blatantly shirking so many of the Christ’s teachings…

…and how easily have I allowed myself to slip into the same mindset throughout this presidential campaign season.
