EMPOWERING CHRISTIAN WOMEN: "Jesus Christ for President" Blogger Widgets

"Jesus Christ for President"

Monday, October 13, 2008

Sojourn Pastor Daniel Montgomery is currently preaching a two-part series entitled “Christ for President,” using Romans 13 as his text.

I encourage you to watch this teaching video; it contains the entirety of Pastor Daniel’s first sermon in the series, Christ For President.

Here's an excerpt from the blog post: "With the presidential campaign in sprint to the polls, and candidates on both sides of the political spectrum promising to save the country from certain doom in the hands of the opposite party, we, the church, must ask: can politics save the world? Christians are called to no longer conform to the pattern of this world (Romans 12:2a), and the pattern of politics in our day and age is to place our hope for the future in the plan of one party or another. Healthcare reform, vigilant national security, wall-street buy-outs, tax cuts for the poor, for the rich; we’re told these things will save us. But the world is shattered by sin and this corrupts everything. The hope of political action is ultimately false. Above politicians, above government, Christ is our King, our Savior and Redeemer. Jesus Christ is the only hope of the world. God’s plan for the redemption of our sin-shattered world was not an earthly kingdom but a kingdom in the soul. So here we are, living in society with laws and government where Christ is not president. What do we do?"

Watch the video.

Looking forward to part two. :)
