Which argument matters more than the King and Kingdom they are supposed to serve?

By Cal Thomas, Tribune Content Agency on

Pilate: "Shall I crucify your king?"

The chief priests: "We have no king but Caesar." (John 19:15)

As then, today's "chief priests" and church members are being asked to make a choice. One choice might give short-term satisfaction, as Esau experienced with his temporarily filled stomach, but it leads to a loss of credibility in the eyes of the world. It demonstrates that for Christians attaining earthly and temporal power is paramount.

Another verse that might help evangelicals: "Choose this day whom you will serve." (Joshua 24:15).

Bob Dylan contemporized it this way: "Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord, but you're gonna have to serve somebody."

It's time to choose.
