Politics….Does it belongs in the Church?
Time and time again there has been much association with Politics and “The Church”. Should pastors preach or teach about politics or their views on who we should pick for candidates running for offices? Yes, we can and should pray for whom ever is holding offices, but to go as far as to tell us which way we should sway is outlandish.
Listening to the sermons of pastors that feel that they must add their political belief during Sunday service is unwarranted and ill advised. One may see this as a under hand attempt to lead God’s sheep’s down a path that’s unconstitutional. One must be free to pick any candidate running for office without any interference from the Church.
Just think about how this goes in your regular Church, have you ever sense that your pastor interjects now and again about how well Donald Trump is doing? Has he ever said that when Obama was in office? Listening to him or her preach about how well the republicans or democrats are doing, on a certain situation regarding something around the world that “we” the United States took part of.
Yes, it has been said that even Jesus sent people whom he trusted to governments in the Bible.
There are many scriptures in the bible that speak of governments and how we should present and carry ourselves in the eyes of the Lord and man. The following scriptures are just a few depicting how Christ wants us to walk out a life regarding government and laws:Acts 5:29 states But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.Titus 3:1 states Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work.
Psalms 22:28 states For kingship belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the nations.Deuteronomy 16:18-20 “You shall appoint judges and officers in all your towns that the Lord your God is giving you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment. You shall not pervert justice. You shall not show partiality, and you shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and subverts the cause of the righteous. Justice, and only justice, you shall follow, that you may live and inherit the land that the Lord your God is giving you.
It is okay to speak about what is handed to us in the Bible, about the abominations that
God has stated and not be swept away with giving your own opinion about who we are to vote for. We as a Church must speak out on issues and that’s okay, this is what divides us from Church and State, however we as the congregation should never be force to agree or feel force to have a candidate shoved down our throat. Hearing about how a candidate is doing so well is your opinion and should not always be told from the pulpit, keep it to yourself. In my opinion Politics does not belongs in Church unless it’s a side bar discussion at a later time; at a meeting.
