This week I had a friend share with me that their preacher delivered a fantastic sermon on reaching the lost. Then at the end, as if to add a exclamation point he said, “And for those of you who are always asking me to address our governmental issues, this is why I will not.”
Wow…I was surprised as was my friend. The gospel weaves it’s golden thread throughout every fabric of our lives. However, I believe Jesus was definitely involved in politics. Not only did he constantly rebuke the Pharisees and the Sanhedrin, the local politicians of that day, but he gave a mandate for us to be the light of the world in all areas. Is abortion political? Was slavery political? While Americans preached the gospel for 400 years, it wasn’t until we got involved in politics that helped slavery come to an end.
I’ve got an idea for all of us. Why don’t we get our Pastors the book, “40 Days Toward a more Godly nation” as a Christmas gift. He’ll hear the truth about our Founding Fathers and just what the Lord expects of us.

Has anyone ever told you, don’t get involved in politics as a Christian? Have you heard, “You can’t legislate morality?” What about, “It’s wrong to force your moral values on others?”or “Laws don’t change hearts.”
Well, I’m certainly glad these statements didn’t sway William Wilberforce’s decision to get involved.
Author and speaker Neil Mammen came into Kansas last week to help Kansans understand why all these statements are false.
Christians must get involved in politics.
It’s not enough just to preach the gospel. The gospel was preached for 400 years but slavery didn’t stop until Christians got involved. In fact, the involement of Christians in politics are responsible for ending slavery, infanticide, prostitution, child labor, selective gender abortions, animal cruelty and so on.
The Lord told us in Luke 19 to “occupy” until He comes back.
