MY FIRST POST-ELECTION REFLECTION. The election is over. The meaning of victory and assessment of defeat is in full swing. Some talk of mandates. Others commiserate about falling just short again. The buzz is the "moral issues" impact on the vote. But to talk about moral issues, we must talk about all moral issues. If one draws the circle of moral issues only around abortion and gay marriage, one has drawn the circle too narrow for the Bible. Biblically, morality includes, among many other personal and community concerns, honesty, poverty, war, killing, and greed. I didn't hear the winning side include these moral issues in their ads or rhetoric.
