The Rhetoric of the 2008 Presidential Race

Al Mohler comments on this year's Presidential campaign scene:

The rhetoric of the race, and the rhetoric of many evangelicals, is disturbing. This race is important and necessarily so. We are talking about the next President of the United States, after all. But evangelicals have invested far too much hope in the political process. No government can make people good, transform humanity, or eliminate sin. The political sphere is important, but never ultimate.

Jesus Christ is Lord--and He will be Lord regardless of who sits in the Oval Office.

I think this is an exceedingly helpful perspective and a good reminder as this year's Presidential race promises to be very interesting on a number of levels.

Cf. David Brooks' thoughts on the "the Republican Reformation" that he thinks began with Mike Huckabee's win in the Iowa Caucus.
