“Making the world a better place through politics and policy has long been my secular vocation. It is what I do for a living. But part of what has brought me to Christ is the realization that the world can never be healed. We may relieve some suffering at the margins but very often our efforts to reduce suffering in one place results in greater suffering someplace else – and too often we pat ourselves on the back for the good we’ve done while ignoring the damage we created.
We humans don’t do Utopia very well. Scripture has taught me that only God can do Utopia. The world suffers because it is still the domain of Satan and Satan loves misery.”
