Believers 6

17 Apr

But if we’re really going to maintain a moral basis in our society we need more candidates and more office holders who have biblically informed world view– pg. 230

This part of the book is talking about Christians and politics and we disagree with what is being said in that quote. A biblically informed world view is not enough. Anyone can have that even unbelievers and such a view of the world does not guarantee that the office holder or politician is going to follow Christ’s instructions. What we need are those men who use god-given wisdom, have understanding and real knowledge and know how to apply those traits correctly to any given situation.

We do not need people who separate their faith from their political activities. That is just keeping God out of the corridors of power. We need those men who will rely upon God to guide them in making the right decisions, to keep them from making stupid comments or sound bites and bring respect to their office as well as themselves by their character and integrity. We do not need more liars holding public office.

Christians are called to be different and that calling does not exclude justice, legal offices or even politics. Christians are to obey God at all times even when they are holding political office. There is no instruction by either God or Jesus telling their followers that they can ignore their words when they hold public office. Having a Christian worldview is not enough, one has to live the Bible and their lives correctly if they want to influence society towards a moral lifestyle.
