Hard Hearts, Death, and the Gospel

David, over at The Thirsty Theologian, has a post up entitled Hard Hearts, Death, and the Gospel which you may want to take a look at, especially if you're interested in the political realm and are pondering on which candidate you will be voting for during the next campaigns.

Before Jesus ascended into Heaven, surely he knew the evil that would come in our day. Yet his last words to his disciples were not of social or political action. His last command was this: As you go into the world, preach the Gospel. Make disciples. Teach them. Not only is that our mission, it is the only cure for the evil around us. It is the only thing that can penetrate hard hearts. God help us to keep focused on the task he has given us.
