A lot of people think that it’s rude to discuss religion with politics but it all depends and after reading this post I hope you agree.
The definition of politics is:
the activities associated with the governance of a country or other area, especially the debate or conflict among individuals or parties having or hoping to achieve power.
So as we can see by the definition politics has a lot of control over areas which in some cases can be alarming. A lot of times there are laws that are passed that the public isn’t even informed about.
Christians should be informed about politics because there are laws that are being passed/that have been passed that take away parts of our religious freedom.
A lot of people, particularly Christians, think that there will be one law that all of a sudden makes Christianity illegal but they won’t just be one law there will be many laws taking away freedom one piece at a time.
This is why things like ObamaCare should be read carefully because it had over 300 pages and in those 300+ pages ruled for education reform and some of everything else which had absolutely nothing to do with healthcare.
I’m not mentioning this to bash Obama but I’m saying this to let Christians know stop assuming and get informed.
There is an old saying that goes like this, ” If you want to hide something from a man put it in a book. ” That is exactly what politicians do they make this huge stack of laws that politicians don’t read they just pass them.
The worse thing you can do is be the type of person who says, “Oh that would never happen.” People said it in the 50s before they took out prayer in public schools and they said it before Roe v. Wade was legal, which made it legal to kill 50 million+ babies.
People like to point out that a woman has a right to choose but what about the baby? Abortion is a very controversial topic because many people view people who are pro-life noisy and life intruders.
God has forgiven all people who have had abortions but if you know what you are doing is wrong you will be judged according to your knowledge.
It doesn’t matter what the news or anyone else says it’s about what God says. If you purchased an LG phone would you go looking for a Samsung or Apple manual for directions?
No, you would stick with the LG manual since the creator had all the knowledge about the product. The same thing applies to Christians it makes more sense to stick with The Bibles stance on subjects instead of seeking the world’s opinion.
The Bible tells us that in 1 Timothy 4:1 that the Spirit says clearly that in the last times some people will abandon the faith by following deceitful spirits, the teachings of demons.
The Bible is more current than your newspaper it knew there would be a lot of churches that celebrated things like the prosperity gospel and homosexuality and that it would be celebrated.
When people hear the word prosperity gospel they cringe but some prosperity is good because God doesn’t want his children to be poor and barely making ends to meet contrary to popular belief.
Now that you know that politics isn’t evil you can now go out and be more informed voters. It doesn’t make sense to vote for someone who you know doesn’t support religious freedom.
