The following letter was found in the the blog of Good As You, entitled NY Group Going to Court so 'The One Can Save the World". I am using this post as more of a rant, but the blog I am referencing is excellent and I recommend you read the whole thing.
This is the end of the year fundraising letter from the
"Government will always ultimately fail, because the law cannot change a person’s heart. The power of government is restricted by a Divine design. Even on its best day, at its greatest moments of achievement, human government leaves us longing for a greater one.
Imagine a government that does not surrender its principles, but always works in the best interests of its citizenry. It is led by a ruler who demands justice, but metes out mercy. There are no term limits, for its King is eternal. This is reality for the Christian who anticipates an eternity with Jesus. Our broken government, which cannot get to the core problem, drives us to our need for the One who can.
This Christmas I am asking you to look at a failed New York State and national government, and acknowledge your need for another. Do not be despondent over the failures of our leaders, but look to the One who can save the world.
Christians should engage the culture and advocate for public policy positions that are in accord with the timeless principles of Scripture, but we must also acknowledge the limitations of government. It is not politics, but a personal relationship with Jesus Christ that is our hope.
Followers of Jesus Christ are called to shine as lights “in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation” (Phil. 2:15). It is a calling that necessitates a certain tension of being in the world, but not of it. When you support the ministry of New Yorker’s Family Research Foundation (NYFRF) you are supporting an organization that strives to live within that calling.
