Politics and Christianity
April 21, 2010
Christ was killed for political reasons. Throughout history Christians have clashed with the state. But the Christian message is not advanced by politics. People are not converted by politics. There is a major distinction between advancing religion via politics and politics being impacted by a nation full of Christians.
This is not to say that politics are unimportant. They are. The issue of abortion is especially important. But a political solution to abortion is a short term one. If Christianity fades away in 20 years, it will not matter if abortion is banned today….it will be back in 20 years. Politics reflect the beliefs of the population, politics do not mold the beliefs of the population.
