Politics and true government

Last fall's elections in my country worked major changes in my attitude toward government—and politics. Suddenly, I wanted to penetrate the outer shell of the political system to see how it functions. I wanted to understand better how government and politics handle critical issues such as immigration, tax relief, vested interests, welfare, and crime.

I found I needed to take my questions to a deeper level, however, and I asked myself: What is true government and how does it relate to politics? Can leadership in government be trusted? Is politics an asset or a liability to a government? To find answers for such questions, I naturally turn first to God, as many others do. I find that reaching out to Him brings the needed assurance.

What does it really mean to be tolerant?
