I wish that Christians going into politics would meditate on Jeremiah 9:22&23 until their entire way of thinking is transformed by the things important to God: righteousness (doing what is right; not doing what is wrong), justice (taking into consideration what is fair, and measured - not ignored or over-done) and lovingkindness (that goodness would be the motive of every decision). And then, too, make your prayer supporters your most important go-to group. There's much more power to live a consistent life when others are going to God for you, than just your own prayers.

While I may not be so negative as scott about it, I think he's got a point. Calls for Christians to be politically active need to deal with the elephant in the room--the last thirty years of Christian Conservatism.

"It presents an unlikely call for those claimed by Christ to stay within the messy world of politics. Or will we return to the public square armed with a love of God and neighbor?" Hard to believe that a college professor no less would be slinging such a mess of pretentious hash. Return to the public square, well perhaps. Sell your soul and witness by bargaining with the devil is more like it. Evangelicals are so mired in partisan politics they don't know where religion ends and politics begins. They have NO sense of their boundaries and have debauched themselves in the political process. And for what? For nothing. They are like a prostitute, used for pleasure and then thrown away. Only they lack any degree of insight concerning how far they have fallen. The American political system/process is in the direst need of reform. The church could actually play a much more significant prophetic role. Sadly any ambition on that scale was lost long ago.
