Liberation of the Heart
Day after day we see the arguments go back and forth like bullets in a war. There is a constructed polarization between what we call left and right, as if they are the only solutions or options. We believe in a Creator that had a much higher way than communities divided between left and right. His way is entirely different. Whichever side we lean to, as long as we live selfish and sinful lives we are lost. The missionary nation, Israel, was given instructions that would be for blessing. The first and most important was that the Creator God was to be their Lord and they were to have no other gods among them.
It is so easy to get distracted from the real battle when we start picking sides. Granted the Bible has quite clearly described a worldview that gives fuel to one of these camps, but nevertheless, sinners are lost. The first thing must be to liberate the heart and the individual from their bondage. As long as people are in bondage they are still a potential threat to a community from their slavery to sin. Alongside the liberation from sin comes the restoration of the mind, discovering the wisdom of God which historically became corrupted and turned into left right battles.
We need an awakening which will give life and power to the wisdom that has been corrupted. There is hope and as we come before God in prayer and repentance, He is more than able to turn around individual lives, communities and nations.
