Dave Welch on "Consensus"

WND columnist Dave Welch has penned a piece here that I'd love to have printed on the front cover of the New York Times. Of course, we'll see an Ice Age in Gehenna before that happens.

One thing to remember. We can't expect non-Christians to act like Christians, and that is one huge mistake Christian conservatives have made in their assumptions over the past 30 years. Organizations like the Christian Coalition and the Moral Majority were well-intentioned, but all too often, politics took precedence over the Gospel. If you don't have the life-changing and heart-changing power of the Gospel involved, you're defeated before you even start. You might win battles at the ballot box from time to time, but unless the hearts of men are regenerated, such wins will only be temporary.

All the same, I enjoyed Welch's column. I hope you do too.

"...pastors and laymen who bring biblical standards of righteousness and justice into the arena of societal morality and governing as mandated by Scripture are not only criticized and opposed from the world, they often receive the same response from fellow believers and pastoral peers."
