Russell Moore has some good words about fear amid this Health Care debate.
In short, he challenges us to examine whether we get more emotionally worked up and concerned about the politics and economic of health care reform than we do about God's glory, His word, obedience, our sin, and people going to hell because those who don't know Jesus.
Here are a few quotes:
Is it a problem that some of us who are tranquil as still water about biblical doctrine and ecclesial mission are red-faced about Nancy Pelosi and the talking heads on MSNBC? Is it a problem that some who haven’t shared the gospel with their neighbors in months or years are motivated to vent to strangers on the street about how scary national health care will be?
If we were half as outraged by our own sin and self-deception as we are by the follies of our political opponents, what would be the result? If we rejoiced as much that our names are written in heaven as we do about such trivialities as basketball brackets, what would be the result?
