John MacArthur in his book, “Christ’s Call To Reform the Church,” states, “But the presumption that a social movement or political clout could make a signifi cant spiritual difference in the world is evidence of a severe misunderstanding of sin. Believers need to put our energies into ministry that can transform lives, not into laws. The work of God’s kingdom is not about overhauling governments, rewriting regulations, or rebuilding society into some version of a Christian utopia. Political and social justice efforts are, at best, short-term, external solutions for society’s moral ills, and they do nothing to address the personal, internal, dominant matter of sinful hearts that hate God (see Rom. 8:7), and can be rescued from external death only by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Don’t be deceived. Stay focused. Understand the true battle and know the enemy! Worldly solutions are but mere band-aids in a Kingdom war.
