Interesting. I'd love to discuss God's Politics with you. Have you read Mere Discipleship? Great stuff.

OK, stop what you are doing, run to Amazon and pick it up: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1587430495/sr=8-1/qid=1152627847/ref=pd_bbs_1/104-1456232-8425535?ie=UTF8
It's written by Lee Camp, a professor at Lipscomb. It's done more to shake my out of Republichristianism than anything I've read.
It's one of the best books I've ever read.
