Time is irrelevant to God, because GOD stands outside of time, and we don't. God had demanded the church stand up for honesty and integrity in government. But the churches went into hiding around election time, for fear of offending someone. That's actually the greatest offense against our Creator.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
