Did the Elections Expose Our Idolatry?

Last week judgment day came for a number of political candidates. One interesting phenomenon, noted by even the mainstream media, was how few candidates were willing to talk about LGBT policy issues; it was considered “politically risky.”

Given that so many Tennesseans consider themselves evangelicals, what does this say about evangelicalism’s embrace of the Scripture’s teaching on human sexuality?

At the turn of the 19th century, Abraham Kuyper, a minister and politician said, “if a government knows that enacting laws according to the demands of God’s Word will meet with reluctance and resistance, [government] will be tempted to go astray itself and burn incense before the idols of the day.

If Kuyper’s assessment is true, then the reluctance of candidates across Tennessee to speak to LGBT policy issues exposes a form of idolatry that today exists across our state.

Finding the Best Imperfect Candidate

Tennessee’s Republican Primary for governor has seen a flurry of “attack” ads, leaving many voters unsure about what to believe. What is true about them—and all candidates for office—is what’s true about all of humanity: There is none righteous, no not one. So, read all you can, listen to what’s said, and then ask God to help you identify the candidate who:

  • best understands that power comes from God and it is to Him they will account for their political activities and policy decisions,
  • will seek the counsel of those steeped in the application of Scripture to public policy, and
  • is most likely to repent and reverse course when confronted about errors in attitudes, actions, and policy judgments.

In other words, look for the candidate most like David, whose heart and mind was fixed on God.

What Does a Governor Really Do?

Tennessee’s gubernatorial primary is getting down to the wire. However, don’t cast your vote on the assumption that the governor’s main responsibility is to “run” the business of the state, things like managing the budget and state employees. Most of that work is delegated to members of the governor’s cabinet, but that work is driven by the governor’s policy decisions.

So, it is really important that the candidate be strong on public policy and experienced enough in applying a biblical worldview to policy questions to not make “innocent” mistakes that, in a heartbeat, can derail good legislation and spur on bad legislation.

Gubernatorial candidates can rely on polls, but once elected, governors have to rely on their worldview.

Carefully Research Political Endorsements

When former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee endorsed Randy Boyd for governor, he said to be wary of attacks made against him by “politicians.” But the same holds true for a politician’s endorsement of a candidate, particularly when that politician lives out of state.

Often out-of-state politicians endorse candidates without knowing all they should know. For example, Huckabee, a strong advocate for the traditional family and religious liberty, probably didn’t know that Boyd’s primary business is a member of the LGBT advocacy group Tennessee Thrives that is in lockstep with Tennessee’s version of the Human Rights Campaign. And Huckabee probably didn’t know that Boyd’s restaurant in Knoxville hosted an LGBT “Pride Day” event in June.

So, be wary of politicians bearing endorsements—they may not have known or valued the things you think important to your vote.
