Serve God in an Ungodly World
Pray Fervently. "The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes." Proverbs 21:1
Christians realize that we cannot fix a dying system. God did not intend, however, that Christians stop voting (in countries that allow voting.) Christians have a responsibility to speak up for what is right and to testify of Jesus.
The systems of this world are groaning in travail. Jesus said that things will wax worse and worse, and then the end will come. There is no hope in the systems of this world, but we have our hope in the administration of God's Kingdom.
In socialist countries or Islamic countries, Christians have little choice. In fact, it is difficult just staying alive in such countries--if you serve Jesus. If you have freedom to worship, thank God and pray that He preserve your freedom.
We know that the systems of this world are dying systems that cannot be fixed, but we also know that we have a responsibility before God to do what He puts in our hand to do. The most important thing that the redeemed can do is to pray, to walk in the Spirit and be a witness, to speak the Truth in Love, and not to deny Christ in thought, word, or deed. To abdicate our responsibility is to sin.
The solutions do not lie in human government, but human government will become a real force for evil if the redeemed do not take their place. The redeemed do not live to make money but rather work to make a living as part of their ministries and their orderly lives in God's purpose. In the same way, the redeemed do not live for politics, where such cults as liberalism and Islam do consider politics to be central. If the redeemed back out of the process completely, we open the door for the unregenerate to make all of our decisions for us.
