Update on Preaching During Elections

Friends,

Jason over at Per Crucem ad Lucem has some well thought out insights into the manner in which Christians should conduct themselves during the voting season (I say ‘voting season’ not implying at all that political candidates are like wild game we hunt.) Check out his Thirteen Propositions on Voting. I think you will be encouraged by his thoughts.

I’m especially fond of #13:

13. Once the election has taken place, don’t grumble if your choice of party is not elected, for Peter tells us to, ‘Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men. Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God. Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honour the king (1 Peter 2:12-17).
