Postmodern Politics

This is one of the most unique & insightful things I have read this election season. The modern/postmodern discussion and debate has been at the forefront of Christian thought for quite a while now. In the Out of Ur blog Collin Hansen filters the candidates and last weeks debate through this lens.

As much as we discuss how the postmodern world has changed people faith and views, I’ve never thought much about how it effects politics. It is completely applicable and in the same way we must adjust our leadership in the church, we must also in government. Which is not to say I am endorsing either candidate because of this one issue.

It does bring up something I’ve given lots of thought this year-the more I see, the more I think we should be focusing more on leadership ability as the main litmus test when choosing a candidate. That’s a big topic, so more on that later.
