Politics change as leaders come and go. Just because you had favor in the past isn’t a reason to give-up when you are opposed. In fact, we should expect to be opposed, that’s the norm. We get comfortable living in a place of religious freedom, and as a Southern Baptist, Religious Freedom is part of who I am, yet it’s not the end-all-be-all. We need to focus on how to effectively carry out God’s will in the midst of persecution, and not wait, hoping, one day, we will get a leader who will let us do what we want. God’s people have always gone back to their core in the midst of hardship… make sure when trials come, you run to the King, not just pray for a new leader.
