I have no idea what that photo is, I just searched Wylio for "politics."
If you read that paragraph and think "That's not true," then we probably haven't discussed politics.
Which is intentional on my part.
I am (often more slowly than I'd like) being saved from the desire and effects of sin in my life... but it's slow going. There's still a fair bit of darkness in my heart. And politics is like crack cocaine for my dark side. Every single thing that's evil in me is vociferously and voraciously attracted to political debate. It's like chum in the water. Brin said it best a long time ago: The problem with power is not that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The problem with power is that it attracts the corruptible.
A friend posted a political link on my Facebook wall last night, and my (first) response was "That's like inviting a recovering alcoholic to a wine-tasting." Unlike my friends who are actual recovering alcoholics, though, I went ahead and clicked on the link, thinking I was above its effects. Spoiler alert: I'm corruptible. And I think you probably are too.
Over the next three months, I have a limited amount of drive, of willpower, of mental energy, of conversations with friends and potential friends, and of focus. Why should I spend it engaging in the division of this Kingdom, when I could be focused on the expansion of a better one?
