There are methods of changing our worlds so much more effective and therefore more important than government.
In America we have the ability to guide our government in ways still unequaled around even the free world. So our involvement in government is a good thing.
But it is our involvement in government, and not it’s inverse, and more natural state, government’s involvement in our lives, that is the correct, proper and more important of the two choices.
Further, beyond government is the heart of man.
Government has not the ability to lift the heart of man the way that forgiveness, salvation, and redemption do.
The more important thing is our work in individual lives and in groups, drawing them to Christ and His salvation.
Only as individual lives and communities are changed from the inside out will effective and true change come about in the rest of world.
