Giving to Ceasar

Today at the hospital I was talking to one of our attendings about the political climate revolving around our health care system. At one point I thought of getting involved in local politics, but the more I think about it, the more I keep coming back to Christ saying “Give to Ceasar what is Ceasar’s.”

If you think you can effect change through politics then you are only fooling yourself. The only change that can truly come is through the hearts of men. That’s a Holy Spirit thing and He doesn’t work through the political process. If you think you can effect change in the political climate because you think you have something to offer because you are a Christian, then you might be a serious idiot.

It got me thinking about the homeschooling post I wrote. The bottom line is that Christians should have nothing to do with politics on any level. To think otherwise is simply foolish & illogical. In fact, I’d have to question anyone’s legitimate critical thinking skills who didn’t come to this same conclusion. What part of the Bible aren’t you reading?
