The church isn’t a monolithic voting block for politicians to bandy about as they tally up electoral votes; rather, she is called to be a prophetic presence in the culture that will speak truth to power. Just like God’s prophets in the Old Testament who challenged kings and rulers to be just and merciful and called them out on their greed and idolatry, the church can call politicians to the mat on important ethical matters and challenge our leaders, Republican and Democrat alike, to govern in a manner reflecting biblical values.
So what does it mean for you to embody biblical values in the voting booth? And how can you navigate the morass of political opinions and pandering that dominate our culture especially during an election year?
These are complicated matters! This Today's Christian Woman download can serve as a launching pad for personal reflection and group discussion as you tease out the issues and consider your own political involvement. So read, consider, discuss, pray... and vote! Remember that liberty is a blessing (even when we’ve had it up to our ears with slogans, bumper stickers, and robo-calls!)
