Religion and Politics

"In religion and politics, people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second hand, and without examination."
- Mark Twain

I've spent a lot of time studying and just sitting with scripture, wanting to make the faith I grew up in and the image I had of God be my own. I want my relationship with God to be 'first-hand'. I don't want to just know about God, I want to know God.

Politics? My salvation is not there. But I may take some time to know more about who's running this year, rather than relying on second-hand, and often third-hand info.
