Christians and politics
Here's a little interchange between Billy Graham and Larry King from their interview last December:
KING: What do you make of the Christian conservatives involvement in politics?
GRAHAM: I think they have every right to be involved. I'm trying to stay out of politics. And I have been queried quite a bit lately, why I don't take stands on certain issues. I just feel that my issue is the Gospel of Christ, that God loves you and that God is willing to forgive you. Put your trust in him. And I think that's my message. And if I get off on these other things it divides the audience.

Politics is a devilish game. No matter how utopian, or earnest, our society is, the game is rigged. We are ambassadors from another Kingdom, and should not feel a vested interest in short-sighted objectives no matter how noble they may seem. We've got much more important things to be concentrating on. Way to go, Billy.ReplyDelete
