LOVE IN THE POLITICAL LANDSCAPE
And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love
Yeah they’ll know we are Christians by our love.
Where is this love today, my friends, in the political landscape of this country? Serious Christians are drawn to the outermost poles of the political spectrum, from far left to far right, and seem to have nothing in common. Those who should know better squint to see their far-away fellow Christians and refer to them as they, spit out as if they were part of Satan’s hordes ravishing this country.
What can I do about this? you say. You can start seeing people as people and not ideological aberrations. You can find common ground and steer conversations to that landscape. And what may that be? you say. For those of you who are Christians, that’s the common ground. And love is the common commodity.
