Should We Stop Looking for Godly Political Leaders?

July 30, 2016

King Hezekiah prayed to God, “I pray thee, O LORD, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight” (2 Kings 20:3).

Of King Josiah, the Bible says, “And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left” (2 Kings 22:2).

Of an unsaved Roman centurion, Cornelius, the Bible says that he was “a devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always” (Acts 10:2). His servants testified about him, “Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews” (Acts 10:22).

Anybody who says that we cannot really expect to find godly political leaders, whether they are believers or not, because we are all sinners needs to read his Bible and stop lowering the bar. We can and should look for godly political leaders.
