No Idolatry Allowed, Not Even on the Campaign Trail

From Thomas Sowell's timely warning on "Dangerous Demagoguery," published today in the NRO:

Barack Obama says that he wants to “heal America and repair the world.” One wonders what he will do for an encore and whether he will rest on the seventh day.

Ouch!

I mention this here simply to reinforce the fact that as Christians we must put our trust in God and not in politicians who promise us things no man can deliver, whether conservative or liberal. One of the blessings of Christianity is that it keeps politics and politicians in their proper place with their proper role. When we trust in God, we will not trust in politicians who promise us things only God can deliver.
