Since when is preaching against abortion, homosexuality, and removing God from our vocabulary not the gospel?EVERYTHING is religious, brother, even "politics". The gospel touches every aspect of life. beyedoers.
I for one wish there were more Christians involved in politics. Is there any Scripture forbidding a Christian to also be a politician? I can't think of any at the moment. I don't think coming apart from the world and being separate from it is instruction to turn a blind eye to the direction of our country.
Living in Arkansas I am aware of a well known Southern Baptist Minister turned politician. Even ran for President once. He is now a FOX conservative talk show host. How could one ever turn away from preaching tbe glorious gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and get into tbe curse of politics I never know. But thus nan surely has no power in his ministry. But then he gas no ministry.It seems the devil tempts pastors to turn away from their spiritual calling to indulge in temporal politics. Their ministry loses power. Praise God I heard men last weekend who have a heart for the tbe things of Christ. And not afraid to declare his gospel.
By the way... John MacArhtur... he's the man.Bearmaster's assessment of MacArthur and his ministry is incorrect. He is a seasoned and senior Bible teacher, and as such he has every right to speak to the culture and level his thoughts and opinions about it. Political or otherwise. We NEED more men... older men... like MacArthur!Krispy
Saints,We are really trying to minimize and ask that political posts and discussions do not happen on this forum website. We exhort everyone to pray for leadership in the country and to focus on the kingdom of God more than the kingdoms of this world.also it would be helpful for some who have not read the community rules to do so: SermonIndex Community Guiding Principles: http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=44556&forum=13thank you dear brothers and sisters.this thread is locked.
