Key Verse:

“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” Psalm 51:17 ESV

 

What DID Jesus Do?
By Pastor Jon Haakana

Our political climate in this country has been very unsettled, and at times, even volatile over the past few months. The result of the presidential election and political shift that has taken place has surprised many, and I think it is fair to say, it has been controversial. It is obvious that it has brought great emotion on all sides of the aisle.

Some have wondered why I or the church hasn’t made a statement on this, or preached a sermon, or taken a stand one way or the other regarding what has and is taking place in our country. There are some practical reasons: 1) Whatever I or we did or not do, we would be “damned if you do and damned if you don’t;” 2) it could be divisive instead of helpful; and 3) in our church bylaws the church and leaders are forbidden to “carry on propaganda or influence” regarding politicians or politics.
