The Christian and Politics

TSR discusses the Christian’s approach to politics. Come join The Socially Remote!

In this episode, TSR discusses how the Christian should approach politics. We start by examining 1 Peter 2 and Romans 13. Then we use an article by the late J.I. Packer as a framework to discover that – when considering politics – Christians should start with Scripture and prayer. We should remember that God is in control no matter what happens, and we should not have division with our brothers and sisters in Christ over political issues. Additionally, we should be informed, but our passion about politics should be subordinate to our passion for Jesus Christ and His Church. We need to vote, and, if we’re so called, we should get involved (either voluntarily or vocationally) in the political sphere. Finally, we should not let our political engagement allow us to wash our hands of fighting injustice, oppression, and wickedness; instead, we should be involved on the local (non-political) level to push back the darkness where we see it in this world.
