Christianity and Politics: A Savior on Capitol Hill?!

It is so easy to get caught up in all of the hype and spin that surrounds election time.  It can be an enticing thing to buy into the people and the promises that are being placed out before us.  Each trying to sell themselves as agents of "hope" and "change".  These claims at time become somewhat Messianic!  But as I said in a previous blog, Jesus Christ is not running for office in 2008.  Does this mean that Christians should have no care or have nothing to do with politics?  Not at all!  We definitely should.  But as Christians, our view of government should be shaped by something other than a popularity contest or personal political agendas.  It should be shaped by Christ through the Word of God (Matthew 22:15-21, John 18:33-37, Romans 13:1-7, 1 Peter 2:13-17).

In this segment from Issues, etc., Dr. Uwe Simeon-Netto lays out a great framework by which we Christians should govern and discern our political viewpoints. Enjoy!
