Should Christians be political, should they take an interest in politics?

 

Yes, to the best of ones ability. Its very hard to get good information, period. With out good info, how can you make an informed decision.

 

Politicians tend to pander to the ignorant/uninformed which is the majority of the voting populace. 

 

The most you can do is pick the lesser of two evils.

 

Ron Paul...IMO is stuck in time, unsophisticated and lacks depth of thought.

Should Christians be political, should they take an interest in politics?

 

Yes, we should I believe. We are told not to be part of this World, but like it or not, we are stuck in it for the time being. God is given us signs that are telling us that the End Times are approaching and we would be wise to look out for them. What is happening in the World is a fight between good and evil. Every time a politician speaks,a gun is fired or a new law is passed - they are all reflections of what is going on. Besides, us Christians have a right to vote too.

I may be British but I take a strong interest in U.S.politics as you can probably tell by the number of threads I start in the U.S. news section.

Why? Because as the spearhead of the Free World, what happens to you, happens to me! Your corruption is our corruption and our corruption is yours.

I also take a strong interest in Israeli politics because Israel should be the focus for all Christians.

So switch on the News and don't hide away. There are many people to saved yet, but we must know our enemy. If we close our eyes to what is happening in the World then we may stumble.

Christians need to take an interest in the issues of our day, but I don't think they should necessarily openly campaign for a particular candidate.
