Don’t Suck Jesus Into Your Politics

  1. I just had a friend ask me this morning, “who should we vote for?”, I turned to him and said, ” I’m not getting into that conversation, I don’t talk politics”. I am sending him a link to this.

      Tony,
      I am glad there are more people who get this. I think when we keep politics and God hand-in-hand, then we are not really following Micah 6:8, “No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good,
      and this is what he requires of you:
      to do what is right, to love mercy,
      and to walk humbly with your God.”
      I think people who combine politics can do the right, and merciful thing, but can we do politics while walking humbly with our God? That seems to me as a very private, noiseless, affair. Something that costs me in my own home. Doing what is right and merciful is a humanistic thing, but to do it humbly with God, in privacy, is where it becomes spiritual.

        So if you are totally committed to the love of Jesus, and you believe that “politics” is your calling, how do you handle that?

        Hey Uncle Benno,
        I would want to know what they mean by “politics”. I would never question the motive of the person, I would want to see how Jesus started social movement, and how historical Christian political action has shaped society. What do you think?
