 Re:

But my most troubling question is whether a true Christian, a person committed to the way of Jesus Christ, one who puts first and above all else the Kingdom of God and God’s righteousness, should ever lead a modern nation state.

My own study of U.S. presidents leads me to believe the U.S. has had only one such person as president Jimmy Carter. We have, of course, had many presidents who claimed to be Christians. In fact, probably all have claimed that. But, of course, as a favorite evangelical Christian saying goes, just being in a garage does not make one a car. And so just being a church member or even attender does not make one a true Christian.

Jimmy Carter made no secret of having been “born again.” And it would be difficult for anyone to claim that he was being insincere in that claim (e.g., just to garner the “evangelical vote”). At the time of his election there was no “evangelical block” of voters. The “Religious Right” arose after Carter’s presidency. Many evangelical Christians did vote for him because he was “one of us,” but many of them turned against him and voted for Reagan to replace him.

It has been too long. What was Carter's stance on abortion?
