Rewards from Heaven and Voting Booths

Glen Dean returns to blogging today and notes that a Bob Corker for Senate campaign commercial has only solidified his determination to vote for Ed Bryant. Dean takes umbrage that Corker seeks to woo voters by talking about a past volunteer effort as a builder on an oversees church mission team.

While I don't disagree with Dean's point (also made by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount) that Christians should seek their rewards in heaven, I would only note that if we refused to vote for all politicians who made sure that their churchly efforts were duly reported by their publicists, we would be left with a slim choice. The Oracle is more concerned that nowadays churches themselves seem intent upon issuing press releases and producing slick videos to make sure that everyone knows what a fine job they are doing. As Jesus said, they have their reward.
