vickyvongore asked: Do you think it's okay for a Christian to get involved with politics?
Absolutely. One of the major reasons why politics leaves such a bad taste in people’s mouths is because there’s not enough Christians in politics.
And getting youth used to our system of government and starting to discuss ideas and issues is super important. To realize that there are two sides to an issue. and just because a point of view is popular doesn’t mean it’s responsible or right.
I think every Christian has a responsibility to be involved in politics to a certain degree. Christians need to vote. Christians need to educate themselves. And we need a few passionate, brilliant people to help with the running of the nation.
Absolutely we need Christians to get involved. But don’t elevate politics over Jesus. And don’t assume that God’s going to fix all of the world’s problems through legislation. He does most of His work through ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
