fear and the individual voice

I moved to the US a few weeks ago. Everyday life here is pretty status quo or at least has the appearance of being so. Just about everyone back home is highly concerned about where politics is going down here, especially in context to the presidential candidates. The two that stand out really represent the spectrum, and one side of the spectrum is freaking people out.

Now, I don't mean to be indifferent, but nothing is new under the sun. There will always be level of good and bad government, and "good" and "bad" can be defined anyway. If anything we are blessed to know what the populace is thinking in general due to technologies ability to allow the individual voice to be heard.

But I am reminded of this entire situation as I was reading Luke 13: 1-5 this morning. Some people were talking to Jesus about the political situation that was going on between the Jews and the Romans, and Jesus at the end underlined the main point of the situation, everyone dies, everyone is a sinner, no person is greater or lesser due to their dying circumstances. I don't want to be indifferent, but at the end of the day, what really counts?
