Politics as Usual

August 29, 2008 at 4:35 pm | Posted in Uncategorized, Wisdom | Leave a comment

With the political conventions in the news this week and next, especially with the Democratic National Convention here in Denver, I’ve pondered the past few days if these words of Hosea 8 had anything to say to us here in the United States:

“They set up kings without my consent;

they choose princes without my approval.

With their silver and gold they make idols for themselves

to their own destruction.  .  .  .

How long will they be incapable of purity?”
