It’s the debate that won’t go away: should Christians be involved in politics? This just leads to more questions. What do you mean by “involved,” and what issues do you say are political? What issues do you say are moral? And what about the so-called separation of church and state?
What about pastors and church leaders? Should they discuss politics and government – and should they do it during church services? (some of you gasp!) After all, like we discussed yesterday with Julaine Appling, someone’s morality will be legislated and our government is supposed to be of the people and for the people. Then there’s the confusing question of whether someone can follow Jesus and support Donald Trump. Wait, what?
But it’s hard not to notice the downward spiral of morality in what is often referred to as our post-Christian culture. This doesn’t necessarily mean the church is dead and gone, but all polls and surveys pretty much confirm the fact that Christians are not effectively influencing government and society any longer.
