SHOULD CHRISTIANS HOLD ELECTED OFFICIALS ACCOUNTABLE ?
Some Answer, NO! We Are Citizens Of A Heavenly Kingdom. We Must Only Preach the Gospel.
Others Respond, Yes, Believers Must Bring The Values of Christianity to the Governments of their Nations.
As in all questions relating to the path Christians must take, we must look for answers in the Bible.
The slim-line book,
Dual Citizenship, The Christian And Politics, seeks the Christian’s responsibility in secular government
from a Biblical perspective.
Most Christians would agree that throughout history, secular governments have done a fair to horrible job of reflecting biblical values. This question, of how much effort followers of Jesus Christ should expend in trying to bring Christian values into politics, is certainly not new. However, in the United States this search is unique, since this nation came into being as a result of many faithful Christians seeking to establish freedom of worship through government.
The writings of the Founding Fathers of the USA all reflect a strong belief in God and they integrated into the whole structure of their documents and meetings the application of Biblical principles.
Were the Founding Fathers biblically right to mix religion & politics?
Have we Christians abandoned our legacy?
Should people hold elected officials accountable when they lead nations in an unbiblical direction?
Can Christians be active in politics and
still be following Jesus’ command to preach the Gospel?
These vital questions and more are addressed in the book, Dual Citizenship. 76 pages $4.95
