Mohler’s Perspective on the Iowa Caucuses and Democracy in General

An excerpt from the article

The rhetoric of the race — and the rhetoric of many evangelicals —
is disturbing.  This race is important and necessarily so.  We are
talking about the next President of the United States, after all.  But
evangelicals have invested far too much hope in the political process. 
No government can make people good, transform humanity, or eliminate
sin.  The political sphere is important, but never ultimate.  Jesus
Christ is Lord — and He will be Lord regardless of who sits in the
Oval Office.

This presidential race offers evangelical Christians an opportunity
to mature and rethink our model of political engagement.  We are likely
to confront developments and choices that will require significant
intellectual effort among American Christians.
