Does the United States have the moral authority to comment on the Myanmar coup? In a word, No! We have a ways to go before we will have much moral authority at all when it comes to issues like this. For anyone who might have been living under a rock lately, let me explain why.
What can Christians learn from political parties?
As I said, Christians can learn a lot from political parties. Oftentimes, maybe what to do, but certainly not the way to do them.
After all, it doesn’t matter if Christians are taking a “Biblical” approach to an issue. And yes, I put “Biblical” in quotes for a reason. It’s because when our solution is to go to the government, and / or to act in a way that isn’t loving – it’s also not truly Biblical.
We turn people off. They reject our solutions. But even worse, they reject Jesus’ offer of salvation because we failed to act in a manner consistent with what Jesus taught.
