John Newton on Politics and the Church

"The whole system of my politics is summed up in this one verse, 'The Lord reigns! Let the nation's tremble!'  Psalm 99:1  The times look awfully dark indeed; and as the clouds grow thicker - the stupidity of the nation seems proportionally to increase.  If the Lord had not a remnant here, I would have very formidable apprehensions.  But He loves His redeemed children; some are sighing and mourning before Him, and I am sure He hears their sighs, and sees their tears.  I trust there is mercy in store for us at the bottom; but I expect a shaking time before things get aright channel - before we are humbled, and are taught to give Him the glory.

     The state of the nation, the state of the churches - both are deplorable!  Those who should be praying - are disputing and fighting among themselves!  Alas!  How many professors are more concerned for the mistakes of government - than for their own sins!  'Hallelujah!  For our Lord God Almighty reigns!'  Revelation 19:6”
