Politics

Now, I have a lot to learn .... but it seems to me that it could only be Satan who wanted to silence God's people from asserting the truth, participating in politics - so that his wicked children could just run roughshod over everyone else. Isn't that exactly what has happened throughout history as a result of the righteous not speaking for the truth? "Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men." (Matthew 5:13-16) .... No, this is not to insinuate that the body of Christ is to be overly involved in just politics. Yet, it's the opportunity to speak the light of His truth into a dark world. The Great Commission Jesus gave us is primarily to be carried out daily by His people in leading lost souls to Him. Politics is but one place, one small sector of the world where there are people who need Jesus. SINCE WHEN does God's Word not apply to politics? "Go ye into ALLL the world and... PREACH"! (Mark 16:15) HOW someone votes is the fruit of their life and reveals who they really are (Matthew 7:16, 20).  SO, we are the "salt of the earth" and "light of the world" EXCEPT when it comes to that which is controversial? (Matthew 5:13-16) WHO shall speak the truth if the body of Christ refuses to? NO ONE! Let's not chicken out - but rather preach the Word! (2 Timothy 4:2-4) SINCE WHEN do people in political offices get a pass on being satanic agents? Christians shouldn't be involved in politics???? Get a clue! THAT'S exactly what Satan wants!!!! (Ephesians 5:11) It's SATAN who doesn't want Christians being the salt and light. Case closed! Christians are here to shine the light of Christ's truth in every realm of society - including politics. The novices who claim to be too spiritual to be involved in politics are blinded. If they are so heavenly minded as they pretend to be, why don't they see this as yet another opportunity to communicate the Word of God?Jesus commanded us to "Go ye into ALL the world (every aspect of it) and preach the gospel to EVERY creature." (Mark 16:15)
