Brexit, Boris and the Donald
So, what are God’s purposes in our crazy world? Is Brexit part of God’s plan?Yes, it’s the “unholy Trinity” for many of you out there! Three manifestations of rampant reactionary racism. Or so you are told! Who by? Well, that’s where it gets interesting – and fuzzy – because one source that doesn’t tell you this is the Bible! The Bible speaks into this situation in two different ways. Firstly, we are told that God uses whoever He wants to use for His purposes, not just the usual suspects. He used pagan kings, dodgy prophets, even a donkey. Secondly, we are told most emphatically by Jesus himself that his Kingdom is not of this World and that our job as Christians is not to fix this imperfect world, but to save people out of it. That’s the Gospel, pure and simple!
