The 2020 election cycle is officially upon us. Over the next 17 months, people are going to be talking a lot about who our next president will be. Christians should avoid both the tendency to avoid politics or to over-spiritualize politics. People have long looked for a messiah among political leaders. This was true of Obama in 2008, it is true among Trump supporters today, and it will be true of the Democratic candidate tomorrow. The problem with this type of thinking on both sides of the political aisle is that it tends to deify the political leader that you may be for and to demonize the political leader that you may be against. What Christians must realize is that no political leader can save them or the country and that no party line holds up against the Kingdom of Christ. When Jesus came, he was hated by both the left and right, but both sides also began to follow him. They saw in Jesus a new way, a new King and Kingdom, that was bigger and truer than anything that the most ardent Pharisee or the most pagan Roman had to offer. As Christians, we have been called to this Kingdom and to be more committed to our citizenship in the Kingdom of Christ than we are to any otherworldly citizenship.
