What if we didn't inaugurate politicians; we ordained them? It's jarring to think of a political leader and a church leader as being two varieties of the same thing. But both are sworn agents of God. The elder or pastor might exercise his ministry consciously, and the Governor or Senator may not know where his authority comes from. He may think he answers only to the "voters." These are life-and-death matters we're discussing, in Part 3 of the sermon Salt and Light.
