Christians and Politics


Christian and Politics

By Beverly B. Media and Communications, LLC

When I was younger I didn’t care much for the news and even less for politics.  All I remember about the State of the Union addresses of the past is that it was on all the channels and I was unable to watch my show at the time. This was before cable was the mega beast that it is now.  You would think this has changed as I got older but it didn’t. It was not until I gave my life to Christ and became the producer for a public affairs program that I began to fully understand the importance of being in the know. Mat. 10:16 KJV tells us to be wise as serpents and harmless as dove. We must be aware of what to pray for and how to prepare.

God’s people are destroyed due to a lack of knowledge. (Pr. 4:7 KJV)  It is our responsibility to understand what God says about a situation or policy before supporting or protesting it. Too many are moved by emotions, personal agendas and the media, when we should be moved by the Holy Spirit.

It is believed that the phrase “Separation of Church and State” is in the constitution, however this is not true.  The phrase was written by Thomas Jefferson to describe the type of relationship that would take place between the church and the newly formed government.  The state is not to interfere with the inner workings of the church and vice versa for the church; however, as time progresses we see that lines are slowly being blurred.

It has never been promised that life would be easy. We are inundated, on a daily basis, with the tragedies of the world. Whether it is the gruesome beheadings of innocent people, the corrupt behavior of elected officials or just the unavoidable tragedies of life—bad things will happen.  While it is tempting to stay in bed and come out when everyone is playing nicely, that’s not likely to happen any time soon. Nonetheless, how we choose to deal with these tragedies today will affect our tomorrows.

For many, politics are viewed as a difficult and annoying subject to understand and one that causes strife and division.  In the eye of nation, most people look at politicians as crooks. No matter the law passed, there will always be a group angry at their decisions.  It is an ugly business but politics should not be ignored, especially by Christians. In 1 Peter 2:9 KJV we are called peculiar people because the world sees us as strange because we do not move to the flow of popular opinions but to the flow of the Holy Spirit. Christians we are not to see things through the eyes of color, gender, or political affiliation but through spiritual eyes.
