Christians Aren't In Despair, Even With Joe Biden As President


Today is the big day for Joe Biden. But it's a tough day for Donald Trump, and the 75 million Americans who voted for him. A large number of that group are Christians. So how should people of faith react to a president they didn't vote for? by an election that was, at least according to the overwhelming evidence that the courts refused to even look at, not fair? Dave Welch of the Houston area pastors council told KTRH, "We are always first, followers of Jesus Christ, and secondarily citizens of this nation. That doesn't mean we're not to be concerned. Deeply concerned." And how does a believer make peace? when it's hard to believe that the election was legitimate? Welch says "There is no question that (fraud) occurred in this election. Now have we lost our freedom entirely? No, what we have to do is recommit to be better citizens, and most importantly live our faith every day in all that we do." And while it may be easy to be discouraged, Dr. Shannon Holzer of Houston Baptist University also told KTRH, "we don't have to despair during this time. Actually, Christians have much more hope than others who don't like the result of this election because our hope isn't placed in government, it's placed in God." And so, what would Jesus do? Holzer says "I think the road forward for Christians is to follow the great commission, and that is to make disciples of all nations and baptize them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit." "That was Jesus' commission, not to make democrats republicans." And Jesus himself said it best in John 16:33. "In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." Basically, there are only 2 roads. One that follows God, and one that plays god.
