Now I don’t want anyone to get the impression that I’m some sort of political junkie or activist. I’m actually quite ignorant and disinterested. I was directed to this 7-minute John Piper video by my pastor (no, not from the pulpit, just a mundane email), and I think it has a properly sobering perspective on the election.
I especially like how he defines a “prophetic perspective”, not as one of command, but of detachment. That, and when he says “SarahPalin” so fast, it sounds like “Serpent”. I had to listen to it twice to realize he wasn’t making an allegory to Gen 3!
