All who fast for such God is ashamed of them.
Political fastings are akin to fasting to find a beautiful woman.
All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance.
And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth.
People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return.
Instead, they were longing for a better country–a heavenly one.
Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them. (Hebrews 11:13-16)
Bonus Righteousness: Stop looking to worldly governments for holiness, rather, go to a restaurant, vote, then go home and call your neighbor to repentance. Aw, poor baby, I know you might get persecuted by Amoral Pagan Prosecutors (A.P.P.) when you cannot hide behind a politician.
