Senator Tim Scott Offers the Answer to America’s Problems: Jesus

There was a common theme, a singular thread that was woven throughout the tapestry of everything that Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina said in his time at the Resurgent Gathering Friday morning: Jesus.

Civility in politics?  Scott: Come to a humble recognition that outside of Jesus Christ, man is not perfectable, so our best hope is the free exchange of ideas and a willingness to listen to one another without screaming.

Economic growth?  Scott: Look at the various economic systems that exist, decide which one creates the highest levels of prosperity, go that direction, but make sure it is anchored in Truth.  That is, an absolute morality that has a single definition which produces an objective standard for everyone to abide by.

How did you succeed in politics?  Scott: A mom who prayed relentlessly, a teacher who provided direction, an honest assessment of his gifts and opportunities, and a steadfast belief that Romans 8:28 is true.

Ambition?  Scott: A godly Chick-fil-A entrepreneur who took a kid who had failed high school world geography and civics, and reinforced the idea that with Christ all things are possible…anything is possible for anybody.

Entitlement Reform?  Scott: Love your neighbor as yourself, be willing to make personal sacrifices for the good of the whole – as in, accepting that retirement ages may have to be higher than it was 30 years ago.

Race Relations?  Scott: In my state, God has demonstrated His sense of equilibrium and is bringing a sense of racial healing to the site where the Civil War started – and he used one of the most racist acts in recent history to do it.  There, the families of the victims of the Emanuel AME massacre stood in solidarity and gave the most Biblically sound doctrine and response to tragedy – Christlike forgiveness.

America has a lot of problems, and she has a lot of challenges.  This morning in Atlanta, Senator Scott reminded those listening – sometimes directly, sometimes indirectly – that none of those tests can compare to the hope that springs eternal in Christ Jesus.
