Should Christians Be Politically Motivated?

Politics! For some of us the very word elicits a shiver and a feeling of frustration and disappointment. Are we really so power hungry and immature that we need to demonize those who disagree, that we need to exaggerate our own point of view and win at the cost of our own integrity? The more we know about the political game, the more it seems to be about agenda instead of the will of the people. Should Christians be involved in this arena? Does the political world need a Christian perspective? Do Christians need politics?

Who is God’s Candidate?

In just two days, America will experience what is perhaps the most anticipated Election Day in recent memory. As a country in financial turmoil, we stand at a crossroad: Do we continue to follow the path that the current administration has set under the guidance of President Obama or do we scrap it for an entirely different approach, as laid out by Republican candidate Mitt Romney?

Life in these United States is dominated by a number of things. Money dominates us. If we have it, things are great; if we don’t, we suffer. Our jobs dominate us.

We must look good in the eyes of others. Recently, it seems more than ever before, politics dominates us. The parties, the process and the policies are always headline news and seem of late to be shaping our futures at an alarming speed. So, what are we to make of all this? How should a Christian be involved – or – should a Christian be involved in any of this? Stay with us as we delve into a subject that we normally avoid – Politics and the Christian – is it a match?
