Listen to episode 138 in Spanish:
If you want to bring division to any discussion, talk politics.
The culture of Christianity today is so afraid to offend, we’ve backed out of speaking truth in politics. People will tell you we’re not here to create a theocracy so just go with the flow and zip your lip while you’re at it. Is that true? Is that the way God has called us to handle policies and government?
My undercover guests from the Knight and Rose podcast are on the show today to talk about why Christians must get involved in politics. If there were ever a time in America, the time is now.

Is it possible for a Christian to have political views outside the considerations of their Christian faith?
Christianity is a comprehensive worldview: informs every area of our lives.
Should Christians be involved in politics? Where did that idea come from? Does this mean only atheists or people of other religions can vote? Per the current statistics of people claiming to be Christians, that would eliminate 65% of the American population. So, what do people mean when they say Christians should stay out of politics?
A lot of people put their trust and their hope in the government. Additionally saying, If we vote in the right person, then there won’t be anymore ________. Or if we get this person out, someone else might come in and right these wrongs. What is wrong with this way of thinking and expectations for government officials?
Let’s review some of the issues facing our nation as we speak: the Supreme Court put the issue of abortion back into the hands of the state when they overturned Roe v Wade in June. No doubt abortion laws will be on the ballots this November. Some will be in support of life, and some will be in support of a mother choosing to kill her baby. Is this a political issue just because it’s a voting issue this year? Some will say it is, including Christians, thus dismissing their responsibility to stand for the unborn. We can say the same about issues facing children caught in the middle of an identify crisis with gender dysphoria, or what’s being taught in the schools, or on the shelves in the school library.
Christians used to be involved in every field of society: education, the arts, medicine, politics, etc. Somewhere along the way we bowed out. Culture is swept away by the ideas of secularism. We weren’t pushed out. We walked out and shut the door behind us. Do you think the cultural crisis we face today is related to the exit of Christians from politics and other fields?
Laziness leads to ignorance which leads to cowardice.
When it comes to Christianity and politics, where do we go from here?
