I’m writing for Deeper Church today about politics, and how Christian eschatology should reshape our approach to the powers of this age.
Every day – on the TV, on Facebook and Twitter, at home and at work, online and at the dinner table – we hear a constant refrain: this is the most important election of our lives!

However, Christian eschatology, if it means anything to us, has to mean we approach such things in a way different than the world.
