When one blinds themselves with the politics of man, it is quite easy to lose sight of the Kingdom and how those of it are to refrain from playing the games of man.
There is no setting the example of Kingdom while busily promoting division between man by way of the favourite game of politics with it's various teams/parties. No representation of God, as this divisive format goes against the principle of loving neighbour as self.
Where is the unity as a whole? It is politics that divide you and others, this being it's motivation. Forgiveness? Getting an apology from a political opposite is like expecting a gift of honey from an angry bee. Good friendships have been destroyed by aggression born of political/worldly brainwashing. Not the division of friends/family Jesus was referring to. This is the Adversaries version.
A Christian involving themselves in politics should be aware through their Christian heritage of the scripture that states Matthew 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: ...
Yet they refuse to see, in spite of many using God to forward their agenda, that they are not part of the solution but part of the problem by promoting division. The division promoted is the wrong one and not the one taught by God. It is the division between man they promote rather than division between the world of man and the Kingdom of God, two opposing ideologies.
Using God to promote an agenda is not the same as changing oneself to do and promote the will of God.
God has a way of using all of our self proclaimed wise ways against us in order to teach. Once again as another leading nation seeks to unwittingly destroy itself by way of division within, it proves and will prove again what God has said in scripture. These people are proving the wisdom of God, not by doing His will but by doing exactly as He said they would do in their foolishness.
His will is to make division, not between fellow man, but between the world of man and the Kingdom and His sheep to side with the Kingdom. You'll never hear that promoted on FOX/CNN/wherever, in church, in the political forums, or even here except for perhaps an occasional voice crying in the wilderness. A wilderness which is the backwards world of man.
Are you and others here dividers among man or dividers between the Kingdom and the world that man has made?
Seems to me a lot of Christians have a choice to make before they can truly represent God.
