It's easy to see from our current presidential campaign that for many Christians, it may be a tough decision on who to vote for. It doesn't seem that either major candidate is expressing clear Christian values in their campaign rhetoric. This is just another example that reveals how Christianity no longer has the cultural authority that it once had. Whereas Christianity used to have a primary influence in public discourse (like election campaigns) it no longer does. Society has undergone a shift towards secularization where Christianity is losing its cultural significance. Christianity faces increased restrictions. Society is more hostile towards Christianity. What can we do? We need to go back to the basics. We need to love people to Jesus. Even though people may be more skeptical towards the Bible's claim that Jesus is the way and the truth and the life, we still need to be able to lovingly articulate this message of hope to those people who really need Jesus' love. In a world that continues to be more focused on personal enjoyment, we can faithfully show people how the love of Jesus frees us from the emptiness of self-indulgence. As Christians we have work to do! Jesus calls us to love others enough so that we would be willing to listen and understand their point of view and then engage others in a dialogue of love. We should not act as enemies to others, but rather to act as ambassadors of Christ. We have been called to walk alongside our neighbor in humbleness and humility and to demonstrate genuine care and concern for them. To love others, just like Jesus loves us! Following Jesus!
