We voted on November 3, 2020. It’s now January 2021. Why isn’t this election over? When will it be over – and how? Maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that the start of 2021 will be just as weird as the year that has just ended.
There has been a lot of news lately about China – at least in some media outlets. The first question is, who is reporting about China, and who isn’t? Why the difference? More importantly, is there anything to be worried about regarding Chinese influence in American institutions?
The Founders of the United States had specific ideas about how and why governments are formed, and what they are supposed to do. Our Creator, the ultimate Authority, gave responsibility for government of the earth to human beings. How has that worked out in the American experience? How is it working out right now, when we face an electoral crisis unlike any other we have seen in our history?
Why don’t we have a president yet? The news says Joe Biden won the election, but Donald Trump says it’s not over. What are we to believe? Maybe if we take a look at the election procedures outlined in the Constitution we’ll have a better idea what’s really going on.
We just voted, but we don’t know who won. We probably won’t know for quite a while. Such a thing has never happened before, right? Well, actually, it has. The real question is, how do the people of God deal with this issue -and with all the other issues wrapped up in it?
